PSR and School Nurses!
PSR was invited to participate at the California School Nurses Organization Conference in early February in San Diego. Kay Deeney taught an extensive workshop focusing on MedlinePlus and other NLM resources. She covered the NLM Drug Portal, the Pillbox, DailyMed and Genetics Home Reference. Topics on evaluating health websites and writing easy to read materials were also covered. The school nurses who attended appreciated learning about these resources.
PSR also had a presence in the exhibit hall at this conference. School nurses from all over California stopped by our booth to learn about the resources. Several indicated that they were big fans of MedlinePlus! A few were confused about MedlinePlus versus MEDLINE/PubMed, which still surprises us! The handouts on Mobile Apps and Resources for K-12 Teachers were also very popular!
