Liberating the literature

TRIP and Education

TRIP has been involved in medical and nursing education for a long time. Those with a long memory will remember our Virtual Learning Centre. Various pieces of work, married with our interests, has led us to a rather nice position. We’re currently working on a significant new area devoted to continuing professional development (CPD). We’re currently working through a number of formats and hope to have something for public consumption in the near future.

Exciting time!

Interesting new sites

I’ve recently seen a batch of new sites which have caught my attention:

Nice review, or is that preview?

David Rothman writes one of the best medical blogs, from an library/information perspective, that I know (click here). Due to his position as a forward-thinking type(!) I sent him the URL to the development version of the new TRIP (minus the comments section). Here are his, flattering, comments (click here).

The TRIP Evidence Reviews are going very well and we’re now approaching 40. I’m not sure when we’ll stop producing them, news ones I mean. My main concern is that, once produced, we have enough resource to update them. Some will need updating every 3-4 months while others will probably only need updating every 6-9 months. We have now added the first batch to TRIP and these tend to come at the top of the search results.

TRIP Evidence Reviews

We are very pleased to announce the release of our new ‘product’ called TRIP Evidence Reviews. These are a series of reviews in specific topic areas. The reviews consist, principally, of a collection of links to recent research and guidance in an area. We see these as an educational tool, providing an easy method of updating oneself on new research and thinking in a particular topic area.

For more information see our TRIP Evidence Reviews blog.
