The Cairns Hospital Library & Knowledge Centre (LKC) has produced a number of specialty guides (libguides). What are they?

They are topic or subject (specialty) based websites that are designed to help Queensland Health (QH) staff find library and Clinical Knowledge Network (CKN) online resources (including books, journals, databases and medicines resources, etc). In addition, the guides provide links to:

  • events (such as, education, training, conferences or meetings, podcasts, etc)
  • related publications, guidelines, statistics, standards and legislation (as applicable)
  • organisational websites
  • consumer or patient health information (if applicable to the topic)

The guides can be accessed via the internet, which means QH staff can access them off-site.

Logins are required to access CKN content (register for CKN offsite access).

Some links may point to QHEPS intranet content - they can only be accessed on work computers.

All links will have a hover over explanation and specific instructions about access.

The specialty guides are a starting point to help identify key resources for the specialty, subject or topic. They do not provide comprehensive research support and staff should approach their local Queensland Health library for further help.

Can't find the publication, book or resource you want on the LKC specialty guides? Contact your QH library for assistance.

Cairns & Hinterland and Torres & Cape HHS staff ;and JCU medical students and staff based at Cairns Hospital - just ask LKC team to find resources for you.
