Health Information Week


Health Information Week (3-9 July) is a national multi-sector campaign to promote the good quality health resources that are available to the public.

This year, our Public Health and Patient Information Specialist Librarians will be manning a stall in the foyer of the Jubilee Public Library in Brighton on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th July.

The theme will be on cancer screening and knowing the signs of cancer. We will be raising awareness through our leaflets and posters of the benefits of screening to prevent cancer, and also the importance of knowing the signs of cancer which means a visit to the doctor is needed. Drop in and see us there or contact us.

Library and Knowledge Service at the BSUH2016 Multidisciplinary Education Event

Library and Knowledge Service staff presented at the 2016 BSUH Multidisciplinary Education Event on 13 September at Princess Royal Hospital. We offered sessions on, KnowledgeShare to support evidence-based practice, going beyond Google, iris and online learning and better networking with Twitter. If you missed any of these, many are available as part of our teaching programme.

The conference was a great success, and you can see the coverage on Twitter with the hashtag #EdBSUH16. We look forward to participating in more interprofessional events.
