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.
