Finding, using and managing information: nursing, midwifery health and social care information literacy competences

The Royal College of Nursing recognised the need for information literacy competences to complement its clinical competence framework, helping nurses, midwives, health care assistants and nursing students develop their skills in using information and knowledge and apply this to their practice.

These competences are intended to support the individual and the nursing team’s thinking about the information required to inform activities of varying complexity and are intended for use by staff in NHS career bands 1-9.
