New NLH site demo

Hello all

Just to let you know that I've made a new robodemo of the NLH site, in case anyone wants it for showing what the site looks like.
It's available from the DLnet robodemos page.
If you want to download and run it on your own computers, use the bottom links to the zip files.
There are 2 versions - one that runs once and stops, and a rolling one for use on stands, etc.

Let me know if you have any problems - drop me an email.

IFM Healthcare Study Day - 19 April 2005

- Good news: it's not too late to book - places are still available!

Meeting the challenge of evidence-based health management: the information professional's role
King's Fund, London

Tuesday 19 April 2005

By popular demand IFM Healthcare is holding a Study Day on the information professional's role in evidence based practice for health and social care managers.

The study day will be looking at:
  • how information professionals can better communicate with managers: taking a professional approach
  • an example of a "real life" approach - the challenges faced by information professionals providing information services for managers
  • how health managers make decisions
  • their use of the evidence base to influence practice
  • can information professionals' experience of supporting clinicians in evidence-based practice be transferred to managers? If so, how?
The study day will be a mix of presentations, group discussions and practical workshops.

Speakers include:
  • Lynette Cawthra, Manager, Information & Library Service, Kings Fund, London
  • David Naylor, Programme Director, Leadership & Development Programme, Kings Fund, London
  • Suzette Woodward, National Patient Safety Agency
  • Andrew Booth, Director of Information Resources, School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield
