During August our Resource of the Month has been NHS Athens resources. These are resources which can be accessed by NHS staff and students on placement with their Athens account. Resources include BMJ Best Practice, Royal Marsden Manual and databases such as Medline and CINAHL.
The first resource was a reminder about how to register for an NHS Athens account. In order to speed up the registration process please use an NHS email address on the form and complete the form on an NHS networked computer.
With your NHS Athens account you will be able to access a range of tools, apps, databases and more

Once you have your Athens account you can begin using it to access the resources. In this tweet we highlighted the Royal Marsden Nursing Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures. There are also copies of the book in the Medical Library but it is very easy to access it online.
