The CASH Database

The database is the hub of the CASH service. The content can be added, searched and exported to create personalised alerting services for library customers.  There are a number of newsfeeds that can be embedded into external CAS website pages keeping them constantly updated with the latest content.

To search for a specific item enter a keyword that may appear in either the title or summary.

Database entry is very quick and easy, see the Database Quick Guide for further support.

Search Tips

  • Search for the first three words in the title e.g. "Five year forward" will find everything about the Five Year Forward View
  • Browse a category from the drop-down list to see the latest news on that topic

  • Enter a keyword to narrow your search e.g. Category Mental Health and Keyword Parity 

Why don’t people have kidney dialysis at home?

Year of publication
People with kidney disease described why they are reluctant to have home dialysis, in new research. Some were concerned about changes to their home, or of their family becoming carers. Hospital dialysis was often presented as ‘the norm’ by healthcare professionals, and some people welcomed the regular social contact at dialysis sessions.
