Nurses and Librarians: Perfect Partners!
Join us for an interesting session on the partnership between nurses and librarians. For those who are new to working with nurses, Valerie Meyer, librarian at Chamberlain School of Nursing will speak to the need for outreach to nurses. Nurses recognize that information is needed to improve practice and provide quality patient care. However, many nurses have not used library databases or understand thoroughly how to get the information they need. This is an untapped opportunity for collaboration and bridge building.
Looking at more advanced partnerships, Louise Miller, PhD, RN & Rebecca Graves, MLS will talk about their collaboration on grants, teaching and presenting. Their work together has taken them from classrooms (virtual and physical) teaching nursing students to the small towns of Missouri teaching frontline nurses. They have also teamed up for presentations at conferences to school nurses in Kansas City and librarians in Honolulu. Their next exploits are focusing on getting information literacy woven in an enduring form into the Sinclair School of Nursing curriculum.
The session will be held on Adobe Connect from 1 – 2 PM CDT, 12 – 1 PM MDT on Tuesday, July 19. To attend go to https://webmeeting.nih.gov/mcr. (bbj)
