Revalidation – we can help

Revalidation is the process that nurses, doctors, pharmacists and many AHPs have to undertake to remain registered to practice.

Struggling to find articles, books, or other CPD related information?  The library can help…

What can we do to help you?

We have quiet space for study or reflection, articles to read and reflect on, and a range of books.

We can help run journal clubs in teams as well as keeping you up-to-date with the latest developments in your role/specialty.

We have resources such as BrowZine, BMJ Best Practice and DynaMed to support professional development.

We have training sessions available to help you develop the skills to find evidence yourself.

Looking for clinical articles to use for CPD? We have e-Resources that will help

BMJ Best Practice and DynaMed provide detailed evidence based guides to hundreds of medical conditions:
