PSR sponsors “Diagnostic Error: A Multidisciplinary Exploration” Register Now!

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

There are still open slots for the full-day MLA CE course “Diagnostic Error: A Multidisciplinary Exploration,” being sponsored by NN/LM PSR on Friday, March 1, at Long Beach Memorial / Miller Children’s Hospital, Center for Health Education, Houssels Forum, with instructors Mark Graber, Barb Jones, and Lorri Zipperer. This free, interactive workshop for medical decision makers and information professionals focuses on how multidisciplinary teams can contribute to the reduction of diagnostic error. The session will highlight the collaborative roles of clinicians and librarians/informationists to reduce factors contributing to diagnostic error.

The invitation to bring a clinical partner isn’t a requirement for the class, but rather a suggestion. Several clinicians have registered for the class, which should meet the goal of expanding the class perspective regarding diagnostic error. To see a detailed class description, instructor biographies, location information, and to access the registration link, please visithttp://nnlm.gov/ntcc/classes/class_details.html?class_id=559.

Webinar: Bethesda Hospitals’ Emergency Preparedness Partnership

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

The February Disaster Information Specialist monthly conference call and web meeting will be held Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 11:30 MT, 12:30 CT , using Adobe Connect. The session is open to anyone wishing to attend.

Victor Cid, Senior Computer Scientist in NLM’s Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC), will describe two projects that DIMRC is coordinating for the Bethesda Hospitals’ Emergency Preparedness Partnership (BHEPP) http://www.bethesdahospitalsemergencypartnership.org. BHEPP is a partnership of four major healthcare institutions in Bethesda, MD, who work collaboratively in response to man-made or natural disasters. The DIMRC projects support the work of the hospitals’ senior personnel who are in charge of managing the hospitals in case of a disaster. The first project is a resilient communications system that allows the hospitals’ emergency managers to keep connected through email when all other traditional communications systems are unavailable. The other is a learning system for the Hospital Incident Command System that makes use of gaming technology, to enable the senior staff conducting collaborative exercises based on simulated disasters.
