Keeping track of new evidence and publications can be difficult, but the library’s KnowledgeShare service can make it much easier.

KnowledgeShare has recently added additional categories that you can add to your profile to be alerted on:

  • Frailty

You can sign up for our KnowledgeShare service at and receive personalised updates of new information on these topics, or any others that you’re interested in. Because the service is tailored to your interests, you’re more likely to receive updates on only the things you really want to know about, so let us know everything you’re interested in.

If you’re already a subscriber, simply reply to your next alert email and let us know if you’d like to amend your preferences to add any of these new topics (or change anything else about your alert preferences).

Many of the resources used are freely available, so you’ll be able to access them with one-click, and most of the remainder are available with an NHS OpenAthens account.

Updates are sent out fortnightly, so you won’t be inundated with emails.
