LKS are pleased to announce the provision of two new evidence based resources:-

Covering both common and complex prescribing situations encountered in day-to-day clinical practice, this comprehensive resource provides expert guidance on drug choice, minimum and maximum doses, adverse effects, switching medications, prescribing for special patient groups, and more.


Social Policy and Practice

Social Policy and Practice represents an important source of evidence-based social science research for policy-makers, practitioners, educators and students working within economic and social development, social administration, social services, and care management. Coverage is extensive and includes: Public health; Social care; Community development; Mental and community health; Equalities; Law and order; Children and families; Older People

The database comprises over 320,000 bibliographic records, with a significant number citing important "grey literature" sources such as semi-published reports, surveys and statistics.  Users can link to full text (where available).
