Get Help Accessing SHIRP Resources

Offsite, resources can be accessed by creating an individual SHIRP account. SHIRP resources are available to Saskatchewan-licensed health care practitioners only. Practitioners in other provinces should check with their licensing body, professional association or employer for access to similar resources.

Using SHIRP Resources

Throughout the site, the  icon next to a resource link means that a video showing how to use the resource is available. 

SHIRP offers additional support on how to use resources in-person, by email or telephone to individuals and groups. If you would like instruction for yourself or your group anywhere in Saskatchewan, please contact SHIRP to discuss arrangements. SHIRP now has WebEx available for presentations. 

Below are links to various publishers' user guides and YouTube videos on how to use various resources.
