Abstract


 The aim of this article is to share experiences of developing an information literacy programme for NHS healthcare staff who require preparation for higher level study and for those without recent formal learning experiences.  Initial evaluations concluded that the course was very clinically centred with a high number of nurses attending with a variety of needs.    A more learner-centred, blended approach, including e-learning and self-study materials that will widen participation to non-clinical staff, support life-long learning and provide transferable learning is recommended.
