These modules are designed to help the healthcare workforce (clinical and non-clinical) in Scotland build confidence to search published literature for articles and evidence relevant to their work, study and research. They are short (each takes 20 minutes to complete) and may be ‘dipped into’ for reference or completed to obtain a certificate. There are six modules suitable for novice searchers and those wishing to refresh their knowledge, providing a total of 2 hours CPD time.
The Literature Searching modules are freely accessible to anyone with a Turas Learn account, which is available to all health and care staff in Scotland. If you do not have an account already, please Register. This will ensure your learning activity is recorded and you will be able to generate a record of completion.
