Free Distance Course: Making Connections


Outpatient 0 by tomswift46 on Flickr

Is trying to keep up with information about electronic health records (EHRs) turning everything into a blur? Do you know your HITECH from your HIPAA without screaming “HIE!”? Just how can librarians be a part of the latest way that health information is being used and managed by both clinicians and patients?

Join Nikki Dettmar, Education and Assessment Coordinator, for Making Connections: Electronic Health Records and Librarians, a free asynchronous online class starting September 6 and ending September 30, 2011  that provides an introduction to electronic health records and the conjunction of health information technology (health IT), information professionals, and patients accessing information through EHRs. Upon completion of this course participants will earn 3 continuing education credit units from the Medical Library Association. To register, sign up today at

http://nnlm.gov/pnr/training/register.html?schedule_id=1393. Priority will be given to participants from the Pacific Northwest Region (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington) with others admitted on a space-available basis. You will receive a personal email from the course instructor within several days of registering to confirm your place in the course. We look forward to having you join us!

    Hi from Canada. I know that there will be a strong U.S. flavour to this web course, but I hope to extract general principles for use in Canada/B.C.

    If there’s room in the course…

    Thanks, Nikki. Timely topic.

    Hi Beth! Please do go ahead and sign up using this link http://nnlm.gov/pnr/training/register.html?schedule_id=1393 and I will keep you posted on if a spot becomes available. I enjoyed the perspective from a Canadian student when I offered the class earlier this year too!

    Best,
