Working and Researching

LKS ASE can support you and your research in a number of ways.  We can conduct searches for you, supply documents through our document supply service and help search for funding though our subscription to *Research Professional – the research funding database. See also the Research Hub.

For large projects and systematic reviews we can provide additional expert help though our partnership with Manchester University NHS Trust Library.

Contacting the library early in the research process give the library greater scope to offer support.

Resources for Resaerchers - Case Study

I requested a literature search on the subject of ambulance clinicians recognising patients approaching the end of life for referral to their primary care providers. LKS ASE identified 53 articles surrounding the subject as little literature on the specific subject exists. Detailed references together with abstracts supplied within 24 hours. The research contributes to a literature review associated with a national cross-sectional survey of paramedics on their experiences, knowledge and attitudes concerning identification of patients approaching the end of life. The search provided a larger body of literature within which to base the study. It will improve final dissemination of study results, benefitting locating the study in existing literature and enabling more detailed discussion.
