COVID-19 COMPENDIUM OF KNOWLEDGE SOURCES

20/06/2020 Update –

Updated Information Compendium and library replaced the previous version in the coronavirus administration page please check this link for the most up to date information

KMC Compendium 20/06/2020 update

02.06.2020

The Compendium is produced by the Knowledge Management Cell as a
current awareness service. It is a collection of respected websites providing
content on Covid-19. The content ranges from guidance, FAQs, emerging
evidence, datasets and resources for population groups. The websites are
updated regularly by the host organisations. It does not contain individual
documents as these become outdated very quickly. Rather, it signposts to
where the most up to date documentation can be found.

Who is it for?
The Compendium has been prepared as a resource for members of the HSC Covid-19 Silver Cells. It is under constant review and updated versions will be released. It can be shared with colleagues in other Health and Social Care
organisations, as well as stakeholders and those in partner organisations. It is not intended for direct issue to members of the public; this is the role of the NI Covid-19 App.

Sources added since the last issue are highlighted in red.
