Midwifery e-Library & Managed Knowledge Network

The NES Knowledge Services Group has developed a special e-Library and Managed Knowledge Network to provide knowledge support for the Midwifery community throughout Scotland.

The Midwifery e-Library enables midwives to manage knowledge to support day-to-day practice and continuing professional development by providing access to the published knowledge and evidence-base relating to Midwifery.

It enables midwives to easily search and filter a range of evaluated Midwifery resources directly relevant to the learning and practice of midwives in one simple search. Resources include databases of articles, evidence summaries, full text journals, electronic books, guidelines and protocols, patient information and evaluated health and social care websites.

It presents a range of Midwifery topics related to the mother's journey throughout childbirth leading directly to evidence-based guidelines, articles and patient information.

It helps Midwifery staff to keep up-to-date by providing interactive knowledge services including: newsfeeds, conferences and events directories, and alerting services to new articles in their field of interest.

My Community Space allows Midwives to create and manage their personal profile, access and organise resources of interest to them, and find people with similar interests to their own. It facilitates a new and exciting way to link people and share resources, with new potential to create communities of people with a shared interest.

The Managed Knowledge Network fosters the creation and dissemination of knowledge by enabling Midwives to work collaboratively and to share best practice and experiences with colleagues anywhere in Scotland.
