This quarterly bulletin covers literature relating to clinical governance and should be of interest to a variety of NHS staff. It is intended as an information tool to help you keep up to date with developments in your area of clinical expertise and interest. It is not an expression of organisational policy. The inclusion of a guideline, system, tool or similar in this newsletter does not imply that it is used, or should be implemented, within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
Many of the following articles are available online via the NHS Scotland Knowledge Network. Please use the links where provided and your ATHENS login. A complete list of available online journals and registration for ATHENS can be found at www.knowledge.scot.nhs.uk.

Critical appraisal is an essential part of evidence-based practice and involves systematically evaluating evidence to establish whether it is valid, accurate and relevant. For introductory resources, visit the Critical Appraisal Tools pathway or our Knowledge Sharing Handbook.
