To access Health and Psychosocial Instruments go to http://ovidsp.ovid.com/athens/redirect.cgi, log in with your Athens username and password and select Health and Psychosocial Instruments from the list.

From this list you can also access the following resources in addition to the healthcare databases available through NHS Evidence:
  • Maternity and infant care

UCL staff and students can access all these resources via the library's website. (Off-site access requires a UCL userid and password).

The Royal Free Medical Library offers training and support in using this resource and all other resources available with your NHS Athens.
