This monthly bulletin contains recent articles written by, or containing contributions from, staff working in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. It is intended to contribute to knowledge sharing across the Board, by listing who is publishing on which topics. Articles are selected from regular searches of CINAHL, PsycINFO, OVID Medline and EMBASE databases.
- To find the GGC contributor, you need to view the full text of the article.
- Articles are included according to the month they were found in the database(s) - not necessarily the same month as they were originally published.
- Statistics about authors, articles and journals will be collated on a regular basis - look out for more information on this in the coming months.
- If you think a particular article has been missed, or have any comments about the content generally, please get in touch. Submit a comment at the end of this article, or contact the Library Network directly.
Many of the following articles are available online via the NHS Scotland Knowledge Network. Please use the links where provided and your ATHENS login.
