Journal Clubs enable you to meet with colleagues to critically discuss the clinical applicability and rigour of a chosen piece of research.
Journal Clubs help staff develop their searching and critical appraisal skills, providing a forum to discuss service improvements.
Medway NHS Library and Knowledge Services support Journal Clubs / Reflective Reading for Revalidation
Medway NHS Library and Knowledge Services offer extensive support for Journal Clubs. We can offer advice on setting up and running journal clubs, provide training on how to effectively search for and critically appraise evidence, and we can also supply you with copies of your chosen discussion article(s).
Our KLS also offer reflective reading sessions to support nurses and other professions through revalidation, and for all staff undergoing the Preceptorship Programme. The sessions typically involve critically discussing an article with colleagues to see how it may impact on practice and how the article relates to the NMC Code (for nursing revalidation), or other professional frameworks. They can count towards hours of Continuing Professional Development. To find out how Medway NHS KLS can support your Journal Clubs and Reflective Reading groups further, see:
