NLM Community-Based Health Information Outreach Symposium

http://medstat.med.utah.edu/symposium

More than 150 attendees representing academic libraries, public libraries, community-based organizations and other interested groups met for a two-day symposium on community-based health information outreach held at the National Library of Medicine® on December 2-3, 2004. The symposium's planning committee was co-chaired by Wayne Peay, Director of Eccles Health Sciences Library, University of Utah, and Maxine Rockoff, Director of the Division of Information Management, New York Academy of Medicine.

The symposium was convened to explore new models of health information outreach that are emerging as technology dramatically changes the abilities of medical and health services libraries to provide resources and services beyond traditional institutional boundaries. Programs and particulars focused on consumer health information outreach through community-based organizations. The National Library of Medicine's Strategic Plan to Reduce Health Disparities was also reviewed, with special emphasis placed on NLM programs targeting Native Americans.

Former chair of the NLM® Board of Regents, Eugenie Prime, opened the meeting with an inspiring keynote address. Other panels addressed such issues as perspectives and lessons learned from selected NLM outreach projects, the community-based organization perspective on health information outreach, outcome and evaluation strategies for outreach projects, and communications strategies useful in maximizing the effectiveness of outreach. A list of presentations and speakers and a complete program are available from the symposium's web site, located at: http://medstat.med.utah.edu/symposium. The web site also includes links to PowerPoint presentations, white papers used for background reading, and other useful links, as well as webcast archives, which are posted on the web site and available for viewing with RealPlayer.

The symposium's poster session featured seventeen projects dealing with innovative approaches to health information outreach throughout the country. Projects ranged from urban health information outreach strategies for Arab Americans in Detroit to health information outreach to the Hispanic population in the Texas-Mexico border colonias. Five posters were presented from the Southeastern Atlantic Region:

  1. Karyn L. Pomerantz, MLS, MPH presented her Partners for Health Information and Health Information Partners (HIPS):Promoting Equity in Health Information, funded by NN/LM® and implemented by the George Washington School of Public Health & Health Services, Washington, DC, kpomeran@gwu.edu

  2. A.H.E.A.D. INITIATIVE, Addressing Health Education and Disparities, presented by Abdul-ali Muhammad/ED, of the A.H.E.A.D. Initiative Training, P. I. Advocates International, Inc., Washington, DC, ali@piaadvocates.org

  3. Bridging the Gap: Health Information Outreach to the Prince George's County Community, overseen by Robin Woods, MSN, RN, Executive Director, Spring of Life Wellness Center, Refreshing Spring Church of God in Christ, Riverdale, MD, rwoods@solwc.org The center's purpose is to expand on health promotion and disease prevention programs that were previously provided by the church's health ministry to include:

    • high blood pressure and diabetes screening and management,
    • HIV/AIDS testing and education,
    • breast health and mammography referral
    • primary care with early diagnosis and management of common chronic diseases.
  4. Building Bridges to Cross the Information Divide aimed to increase individual/community health awareness and knowledge; encourage South Carolinians to modify their lifestyles based on that knowledge; and to improve individual/community health. Key, too was addressing the urgent need to minimize health disparities. Tom Basler, Ph.D. was the PI on Nancy McKeehan, M.S.L.S., was Project Manager of Hands on Health-South Carolina, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC, mckeehan@musc.edu

  5. Community Cancer Coalition, Regional Public Libraries & Academic Outreach - provided electronic health information access in rural southwestern Virginia. The project was a collaborative effort overseen by Ann Duesing, presented by Gretchen Arnold and undertaken by the Mountain Laurel Cancer Resource and Support Center(MLC), Big Stone Gap Virginia; the Lonesome Pine Regional Public Library System of Lee, Scott, Wise and Russell Counties and the City of Norton, Virginia; and the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, gvn8r@virginia.edu

Themes and issues that emerged from the symposium included the importance of "eyeball-to-eyeball" communication in establishing rapport with a community targeted for outreach, planning and conducting evaluation from the beginning of a project, and reaching communities in their own worlds with their own words. Oft repeated was recognition of community based organizations(CBO's) long time line for proposal preparation and program initiation. Participant suggestions and recommendations will be useful in preparing the request for proposals(RFP) for the next National Network of Libraries of Medicine® (NN/LM) five-year contract for the period of 2006-2011.

University of Maryland Baltimore's Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) Hosts Mid-Year RML Directors' Meeting

The Directors and Associate Directors of the regional medical libraries of the NN/LM held their fourth mid-year meeting (for the 2001-2006 contract) at the University of Maryland Baltimore on November 30 - December 1, 2004. The library staff at HS/HSL hosted the meeting, an evening reception, and conducted a tour of the library for the meeting participants.

These mid-year meetings provide the opportunity for NLM to hear about progress of various NN/LM initiatives, and also for NN/LM staff to get an update on various aspects of NLM efforts. The discussion of NN/LM initiatives included: results of a pilot survey to evaluate outreach; updates of the Hospital Internet Task Force and of the E-Licensing Working Group. The HS/HSL reported on their outreach projects: Health Information Outreach to Faith Communities Through Parish Nurses, Maryland GoLocal, Maryland Health Information Summits, and the April 6, 2005 Open Access Forum.

NLM staff gave an overall update on the National Library of Medicine, and specific updates on the ISO protocol and on public access to research information. They also led discussions on NLM's next long range plan, and on "Emergency Preparedness - Preventing Major Disruption in Delivery of Health Information Services."

You can expect to hear more about all of these initiatives in upcoming months, and at the May meeting of the Medical Library Association in San Antonio, Texas.

Looking for Electronic Document Delivery Members to Add to your Routing Map?

Now that many, many hospital libraries have the ability to send and receive DOCLINE requests electronically, they are looking for similarly equipped libraries with whom to borrow and lend rapidly, for free. Let "Search Builder" give you a portal for the string search best suiting your particulars.

To find the libraries and add them to your routing table, use the DOCLINE "Institution Search" search builder to locate Freeshare libraries lending electronically in whatever states answer your need. You'd start with local providers, then regional providers and perhaps pick up several on either coast to increase the clock.

To find FreeShare libraries that provide pdf delivery by email or web, do the following:

  1. Select "Institutions" on the DOCLINE navigation bar.

  2. On the Search page, select "More Search Options."

  3. Select Library Group from the Search Field list and then select "FreeShare." Click Add to Search.

  4. Click "Delivery Options" to narrow your search.

  5. Check the desired delivery options, e.g., Email PDF, Email TIFF, Web PDF, etc.

  6. Check other desired search limits, e.g., "Hospital" library, "Not My Routing Table", "My Region , "My State", etc.
    Click Add to Search. - You can select multiple fields by holding down the shift key as you make your selections.

  7. Click SEARCH.

The above example will search for hospital libraries in the FreeShare library group members that provide delivery by either email pdf OR web pdf AND which are not already in the routing table of the library performing the search. By default, DOCLINE will include only libraries that are DOCLINE participants and that are open.

To view ILL service information including charges, contact info, delivery addresses, etc. for each library in the result set, select "Interlibrary loan" from the View option at the bottom of the page and click Refresh.

Once you have identified libraries you want to add to your Routing Table, click the checkbox next to their LIBIDs and click "Add to Routing Table." These libraries will be added to your Routing Table Workspace so that you can add them to individual cells at your convenience.

We (the Southeastern/Atlantic Regional office) ran the search with "my region" as Region 2 and retrieved 70 possible electronic document delivery libraries and if the search was run with "my state" as Maryland as an example, 7 possible electronic document delivery libraries were retrieved.

We also ran the search with "my region" as Region 7 and retrieved 48 more possible electronic document delivery libraries. Thus you could choose several so that materials requested late in the day to be emailed to the patron could be located by a west coast library and sent before day's end.

Changing "my region" to Region 6 nets 30 more possible lenders. So you've located a wide array of libraries for electronic delivery late in the day on the east coast to be filled by a full mid-day staff on the west coast.

What's New at NLM, NN/LM and Their Partners?

  1. Translational Informatics Grants The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has reissued and renamed its Information System Grant program. The newly named NLM Translational Informatics Grant program was announced in the NIH Guide on November 12, 2004. The purpose of these grants has not changed; NLM Translational Informatics Grants are offered to assist organizations that want to use information technology to optimize the utility of clinical and research information in order to bring usable and useful online health information to end-users.


    Translational Informatics Grants


    http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-05-012.html

    New applications for Information System grants are no longer being accepted. Amended applications for Information System grants will continue to be accepted at the appropriate deadlines.


  2. CLINICAL ALERT from the Aging Institute on Use of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Suspended in Large Alzheimer's Disease Prevention Trial

    Data from the ADAPT trial indicated an apparent increase in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events among the participants taking naproxen when compared with those on placebo.This step is being taken as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of the study's participants.
    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/databases/alerts/nonsteroid.html

  3. New feature on NIHSeniorHealth.gov-Exercise Stories
    http://nihseniorhealth.gov/exercise/stories/stories.html

  4. The Office of Extramural Research (OER), National Institutes of Health (NIH), has announced a new web site that articulates NIH's continuing commitment to new investigators. The web site describes current policies, data related to the influx of new investigators, resources that new investigators can use to understand and work with the NIH, and helpful hints that might be useful in constructing a first application for NIH support. This is a good site if you've never applied for a larger NLM award and need some basic background information about applying for any type of NIH funding.
    http://grants.nih.gov/grants/new_investigators/index.htm

  5. The revised MedlinePlus ® GoLocal Guidelines incorporating the funding option are up, see http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/golocal.html

  6. Spell check arrives for PubMed ®, see http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/nd04/nd04_spell.html

  7. Using more search options and filters in DOCLINE

    DOCLINE Search Screen

    Libraries can search by a combination of key data elements including library group, delivery methods, rush service, provides color copies, copy charges base fee, number of holdings, region, and more.

    To search by the above criteria as well as others, select "Institutions" on the DOCLINE navigation bar and then select the blue 'More Search Options' button.

    Clean up of LD patron records

    -Duplicate records

    -Multiple records (one user -> many libraries)

    -Admin records (multiple users -> one account)

  10. Web browser settings for DOCLINE. There are three browsers that NLM supports for the DOCLINE system. NLM actively tests and supports Netscape 7.0, Internet Explorer 5.5, and Internet Explorer 6.x for use with DOCLINE.

    The settings for three NLM supported browsers for DOCLINE can be found at the following URLs:

    Netscape 7.0 -- http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/netscape7_settings.html

    Internet Explorer 5.5 -- http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/ie5_settings.html

    Internet Explorer 6.x, which means version 6.0 and above -- http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/ie6_settings.html

    These resources include screenshots and step-by-step instructions to help you with navigating your browser's setting options and making needed changes. For institutions behind a firewall, be sure to review the DOCLINE FAQ "Question: How do I connect to DOCLINE and stay connected if my institution uses a firewall or a proxy server?" located at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_firewall.html.

    There are other system requirements for DOCLINE, including computer specifications, cookie information, and information for Macintosh computer users. Visit the following Web page for more information: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/docline/system_requirements.html.

  11. FAQ: DOCLINE -- Base Fees and Surcharges

    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_base_fee_surcharge.html

    The base fee is the standard charge for an interlibrary loan request. Library fees are specified in the institution record (Institutions / Update / Services and Fees tab). DOCLINE provides three types of base fees for copy requests; "Library Group", "Reciprocal Partner", and "Other ILL" (The fee charged libraries with which you have no set ILL agreement.)

  12. TOXMAP ( http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov ) users can now create customized maps from their own web sites by incorporating a simple web link. Once on the TOXMAP site, users can zoom in and out, pan the map, and get more information about the facilities and chemicals represented. It shows--on maps--the amount and location of certain toxic chemicals released into the environment in the United States.

    Full instructions are provided in the TOXMAP FAQ entitled "How can I link my site to TOXMAP?" (http://toxmap.nlm.nih.gov/toxmap/help/faq.jsp#39). Examples are also included.

  13. Familiarize your researchers with the GENSAT database which contains images of the mouse brain at several different developmental stages using both in situ hybridization and transgenic mouse techniques, with a searchable set of gene expression annotations. The project is sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).

  14. Fourth edition of the online tutorial: Introduction to Evidence-Based Medicine is available: http://www.hsl.unc.edu/Services/Tutorials/EBM/index.htm

    This spreadsheet calculates the cost per article published in the current subscription model for 113 institutions designated under the Association of Research Libraries. It graphs these institutions by FTE (full time equivalent enrollment) and compares the results to a range of costs postulated in the producer-pays open access model. This spreadsheet uses publicly-available information and the author regrets any errors within. It was designed to promote dialog and additional analysis - not to advocate a particular position. Modifying the starting assumptions will recalculate the values in the spreadsheet and update the graph. Readers are encouraged to change the assumptions based on more accurate information or alternative scenarios.

    This spreadsheet is an addendum to the Report of the CUL Task Force on Open Access Publishing presented to the Cornell University Library Management Team August 9, 2004. Questions and clarification can be sent to the author, Philip Davis at: pm@cornell.edu
