Equator Network for research reporting If you are involved in research, then the Equator Network is a useful site. It gives reporting guidelines for all the main study types to help improve research quality and reproducibility.  It is also useful to consult these reporting guidelines early on as they can help in research design and planning.

MedTube  MEDtube is the largest medical multimedia platform for professionals sharing more than 20,000 videos, courses, images, documents. As well as the website, there are also Apple and Android apps available.

Nursing Advisor  Nursing Advisor is like UpToDate but for nurses. No need to search through multitudes of articles when all you need is quick access to a clinically relevant overview of a topic. As with UpToDate, you can access it on your mobile device by registering  or on the Library site. Note that you should always consult Prompt first for Barwon Health policies and procedures.

Podcasts The Clinical Podcasts page has podcasts of interest to those in allied health, nursing and various medical specialties. If you have some time in your commute, walk or at home you might like to try some of these out.

TRIP Pro Trip Pro is a clinical search engine that is focused on evidence, with many systematic reviews, evidence synopses, guidelines etc.  On the Library site you can access it in the yellow Library Fast Finder at the top of the page or via the Browse Individual Databases link. You can also access it from home; as with other Library resources used offsite, you need to be a Library Member. Where available, full text links to Barwon Health Library subscriptions will be visible

UpToDate full text articles  UpToDate references now link to Barwon Health Library ejournals. Click on the article title of interest and then on the "Check for Full Text Availability" button. If we subscribe to the journal, this will provide you with access (at work access will be immediate, at home you need to login in and so need to be a library member). If not available as full text, copy the details into this form and we will get it for you.
