Summary "The pressure of working in the resource limited health service together with the requirement to maintain and develop a professional knowledge base leaves little time for staff to get seriously involved in related studies. Even students undertaking diploma and degree courses at university find little time to use computer-based resources in spite of having them to hand." "Readers are introduced to computers at a basic level but with enough information to get started and to troubleshoot simple problems. Then they are shown how to recognize and use applications (programs) useful to professional practice. Finally there is a brief guide to some selected evidence-based practice related web sites to help in the search for information relevant to professional practice and development."--BOOK JACKET
