NAHRS Honors Committee Award for Professional Excellence: Request for nominations letter & recognition for lifetime professional contributions

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

The Honors Committee seeks nominations for the Nursing & Allied Health Resources Section (NAHRS)  Award for Professional Excellence. This award recognizes a NAHRS member who exhibits outstanding leadership and exceptional librarianship in meeting the information needs of nursing and allied health professionals.  The nomination may be made for service and contributions to the information needs of nursing and allied health professionals as demonstrated by excellence in leadership and librarianship, a history of professional publications, conference presentations and participation in NAHRS and MLA. The nominee must be a member of MLA and a member of the NAHRS Section. For additional details, see the nomination form at http://nahrs.mlanet.org/home/awards/. All nominations must be received no later than December 1, 2012. The recipient receives a $100 cash award and will be recognized at the 2013 NAHRS Annual Business Meeting.

The Honors Committee is also responsible for collecting names of retiring (or recently retired) NAHRS members for the Recognition for Lifetime Professional Contributions Award.  This is a non-competitive award; names are forwarded to the NAHRS Board who make the final decision on recognition.  We would appreciate receiving names of retirees PLUS a brief statement of their contributions to the profession and the association.

We know that many NAHRS members are doing great work, and invite you to take this opportunity to help them be recognized. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Jan Rice (jan.rice@bryanhealth.org) off-list.

Thank you for your recommendations.

Diagnostic Error: A Multidisciplinary Exploration - November 15, 2012

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Instructors: Elaine Alligood, Mark Graber, Barb Jones, Linda Williams and Lorri Zipperer

Date:  Thursday, November 15, 2012

Registration and pre-session coffee: 8:30 am; Session time: 9:00 am-4:00 pm

Diagnostic error, a major factor in patient harm also increases medical costs (http://psnet.ahrq.gov/primer.aspx?primerID=12). A free, interactive workshop for medical decision makers and information professionals is being held on November 15th focusing on how multidisciplinary teams can contribute to the reduction of diagnostic error.   This innovative session will highlight evidence-based processes and the collaborative roles of clinicians and their librarians/ informationists as they work together to reduce factors contributing to diagnostic error. This class is set for November 15, 2012 in Room LL05 at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library, University of Maryland Baltimore. Class time is from 9-4, with a break for lunch on your own.

Session content will cover:

  • Team-oriented approaches to understanding the role of information and evidence in the diagnostic process.
  • Case analysis and discussion of bias.
  • Partnering of librarians/informationists with clinical staff to strategize improvements
  • Application of failure analysis techniques to explore system and process improvement.
  • Design of evidence sharing innovations to reduce diagnostic error.
  • Strategies for implementation of proposed projects.

Multidisciplinary teams from organizations are encouraged to attend.  MLA CE credits will be provided.
