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

American Journal of Infection Control
Year of publication
Stethoscope diaphragms are contaminated with MDROs, which may be spread between patients. • Cleaning the stethoscope diaphragm with isopropyl alcohol for 60 seconds, is rarely done. • Even when the stethoscope is cleaned for 60 seconds with isopropyl alcohol, MDRO's persist.
