From 1st July 2020 your StaffLink login can be used to access CIAP offsite. You no longer need to generate and maintain a separate CIAP account.

Onsite access to CIAP will remain the same. You can automatically access CIAP resources without a login at a NSW Health facility.

NSW Health staff will still be required to maintain accounts for specific CIAP resources such as UpToDate, Ovid, BMJ Best Practice etc.

For further questions please contact WSLHD Libraries or view the FAQ document below.


The Clinical Information Access Portal (CIAP) provides information and resources to support evidence-based practice at the point of care. CIAP is available to all NSW Health employees including students on rotation and can be accessed from work and remotely. Western Sydney Local Health District Libraries provide training, support, help with registrations, and linking our catalogue and document delivery services to CIAP.
