NHS Wales e-Library for Health – for pharmacy professionals 

Overview:  What do you know about the e-Library and its e-resources for pharmacy? 

Do you want to learn how to access and use them in your day-to-day role?  

Following our ‘e-library for health’ webinar back in June covering general information, this session now focusses on pharmacy related resources. Whether you participated in that webinar or not, this new session will be of value to you in your day-to-day roles.  

The NHS Wales e-Library for Health managed by NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS) and part-funded by Health Education and Improvement Wales subscribes to a wealth of e-resources applicable to pharmacy and medicines information. 

Available e-resources include e-Books such as Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs, high-ranking e-Journals including International Journal of Pharmacy Practice, Nature Reviews Drug Discovery and Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, databases such as Embase and Medicines Information Database Mircromedex and Point of Care Tools such as DynaMed that provide evidence based summaries and drug monographs. 

This webinar recording is with the e-Library Team and will allow you to follow along, completing searches on the systems.
