HEAR is the result of a collaboration between librarians in a number of hospitals and health care settings across Ireland. This newsletter has useful information for both clinicians and patients. It contains information for patients, families and carers with links to support groups & organisations, books, multimedia and patient education. It also contains links to latest systematic reviews and Irish research in this topic.
