Current Awareness

HLG Nursing Bulletin Vol 37 (2)

Within our profession, we’re always emphasising to our users the importance of maintaining their current awareness of what is going on. And that is no less true for us, so here we present a small sample of recent articles that have caught our eyes. Of course, being a small sample, there is much more out there. So, if you do see something that you think has been of use to you, and would be of use to all of us, let us know and we’ll include it in subsequent issues. Whether it’s a journal article, web page, tweetchat or any other type of media, don’t keep it to yourself. You can find our contact details on the HLG website at
