Register for an NHS OpenAthens account, and search the NHS Knowledge and Library hub, including e-journals and databases such as Medline, PsycInfo and PubMed. Or tell us about the topic you are interested in and we will email you a list of articles.

To keep up with the latest evidence, complete this form and we will set an alert up for you on KnowledgeShare. New evidence on your topic will be emailed direct to you at regular intervals.
