Information Literacy competences for service users in Nursing, Midwifery, Health and Social Care

The UK's Royal College of Nursing has developed a draft competence framework to help midwives, healthcare assistants and nursing students develop their skills in using information and knowledge. They based it on the Australian and New Zealand Institute for Information Literacy (ANZIIL) Framework, but link it to the RCN's existing career and competence framework. They now want to consult external stakeholders "with a view to seeking subsequent accreditation with the RCN Accreditation unit". There is a survey, open til 2nd October, which has the documents embedded in it. The username and password is rcnilcuser
