Upcoming Classes in Syracuse, NY
The MAR Outreach Coordinator, Kate Flewelling, will be in Syracuse, NY, on December 12 to teach the following classes.
Patient Safety Resource Seminar: Librarians on the Front Lines / 8:30 am – 12:30 pm
This interactive seminar focuses on ways librarians can become more involved in patient safety processes and activities—both within their institutions and organizations and in providing patient safety resources for health professionals, for administration and staff, and for patients and families. Topics include understanding the definitions and issues of patient safety; locating where patient safety practices and contacts exist within an institution; identifying appropriate resources; and library advocacy in the area of patient safety. These four hours of lecture, discussion and brainstorming help librarians in all fields become effective agents for improving patient safety.
Nursing on the Net: Health Care Resources You Can Use / 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Looking for the latest developments in patient care but finding too much, too little or inadequate information? Participants will learn to use and evaluate web based health information resources, find online news services, continuing online education courses, and consumer health websites. Participants will also learn to search the National Library of Medicine MEDLINE database of over 19 million citations using the PubMed interface. The workshop will also cover MedlinePlus, the National Library of Medicine website for consumer health information.
