Thanks to funding from the SECU Foundation, Library Services has added a new, current collection of 200 eBooks to the AHEC Digital Library that will be accessible by all ADL members.

These eBooks provide clinical and research support along with evidence-based recommendations to equip providers with what they need to deliver care and successfully navigate changes in healthcare environments. The new resources include:

  • Clinical specialties, including nursing, healthcare management, trauma, and vaccine safety.
  • Health Equity topics such as cultural responsiveness, research equity, health justice, and community engagement.
  • COVID-19 titles related to infection control, epidemiology, public health preparedness, and pandemics.

    As the health care workforce responds to COVID-19, they face challenges to both coping in the moment and ongoing mental health.

    To support this process, the AHEC Digital Library presents a collection of resources geared towards health care worker mental health during COVID-19.

    Due to changes at UNC Health, the ADL can no longer provide access to Up-to-Date beginning November 1, 2021. The ADL does provide access to another point of care clinical decision tool, Essential Evidence Plus.

    One of the useful tools included in Essential Evidence Plus is their summaries of materials in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.

    The Cochrane Reviews section of Essential Evidence offers summarized evaluations of the world's best literature on the effectiveness of therapy for 3,300+ clinical problems.

    NC AHEC provides access to Essential Evidence to all North Carolina health care workers, via the ADL. ADL members can check out the ADL's November 15 Highlighted Resource here:
