National Knowledge Weeks for 2008 and 2009

The National Library for Health (NLH) Specialist Libraries have been developed to identify and meet the information needs of particular communities of practice. They are web-based collections containing clinical and non-clinical information on the major health priority areas. Each NLH Specialist Library identifies and provides access to quality assessed information of relevance to the community that it serves. An aspect of this involves the production of Annual Evidence Updates and National Knowledge Weeks (NKWs). National Knowledge Weeks aim to highlight the best current evidence for selected healthcare topics - they consist of the good quality evidence from an Annual Evidence Update (a search of research evidence on a particular topic over a 12 month period), plus user-friendly summaries written by relevant experts, and links to guidelines, secondary research and primary research, if applicable. All information included in National Knowledge Weeks has been subject to rigorous selection criteria.

The calendar of currently confirmed National Knowledge Weeks for 2008 and 2009 is now available at http://www.library.nhs.uk/nlhdocs/NKWCalendar_08_09.pdf. Further National Knowledge Weeks will be added as soon as they are confirmed.

The National Library for Health is now part of the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, based at the University of Warwick. The NHS Institute supports the NHS to transform healthcare for patients and the public by rapidly developing and spreading new ways of working, new technology and world class leadership.
