The virtual faculty collection

 

Welcome to the new virtual faculty collection.  The Multiprofessional Faculty Development Team, working in partnership with eKAT (electronic Knowledge Access Team) and the London and South East Health Libraries networks, provides all healthcare professionals who are eligible for an NHS OpenAthens account with access to a range of electronic journals.

The FREE e-resources below focus on key faculty development issues including clinical supervision and supporting workplace learning.  Clinical teachers across the NHS can keep up to date with developments, debates and research in the field of clinical education.

In order to access the resources you will need to ensure that you have an NHS OpenAthens account.  OpenAthens is an access management system enabling eligible users to access professional academic resources.  If you are unsure about whether you already have an account, or you wish to set up an account please contact your local library service or email ekat@ncel.hee.nhs.uk

You can also self-register for an OpenAthens account by following the instructions at: https://openathens.nice.org.uk/

When you have your OpenAthens account username and password, please consult the table below to access each of the journals and e-books separately.
