COVID-19 information

A virusThere is a LOT of information out there about COVID-19, and I would urge you to be careful about the information sources you use. Be sure that you trust the source!

We have compiled some general sources of information on the pandemic on the Virtual campus - library page, but here are a few additional sources of particular use to health students:

Coronavirus - learning for the health and care workforce. E-learning for health have made their coronavirus-related material available without the need for a login. There are resources available for many different groups within health and care.

COVID-19 - Nursing Standard. The Nursing Standard have made a collection of evidence-based information and news available for free.

Coronavirus guidance for clinicians and NHS managers. Information and guidance from the NHS.

COVID-19 information from professional bodies:

The list above is limited to UK bodies only. If I have missed any UK professional bodies' COVID-19 pages, please let me know and  I will add them as soon as possible.
