Substance Use Disorder Webinar Series: Innovative Strategies for the Prevention and Treatment of Substance Use Disorder – September 5 and October 18

Mon, 2018-08-13 09:19

The NNLM NER invites you to attend two upcoming webinars on substance use disorder and investigate innovative strategies for the prevention and treatment.

How to Save a Life – Administering Naloxone 101

September 5, 2018   1-2PM (EST)
Bonnie White EdD, MSN, RN, CNE, CCM, Interim Assistant Dean, MCPHS University, Worcester, MA
Francis Melaragni, MBA, CMA, Director of Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Business Program, MCPHS, Boston, MA 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data indicates 115 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose. Further, the CDC states that from 1999-2016, more than 350,000 Americans have died from an overdose involving any opioid, including prescription and illicit opioids. As alarming as these numbers are, they would likely be 2-3 times higher except for a simple and safe intervention that can be administered by anyone who has some basic knowledge and a brief training. This session will show you how it is possible to effectively recognize and respond to an opioid overdose and successfully administer naloxone, the opioid overdose antidote. Distributing naloxone to laypersons has resulted in thousands of overdose reversals and many saved lives. This webinar will provide a live demonstration of how to administer naloxone,  and discuss where you can acquire this life-saving drug .

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize the signs of an opioid overdose
  • Learn the 5 simple steps that can help save a life – including how to administer Naloxone
  • Learn what Naloxone is, how it works and where you can get it
  • Understand the Good Samaritan laws that protect you as it pertains to administering Naloxone

Using Recovery Coaches in Substance Use Disorder Treatment

October 18, 2018 1-2PM
Richard Kenny, Recovery Coach at UMassMemorial Medical Center
Rob Ryan, Recovery Coach at UMassMemorial Medical Center

 A Recovery Coach is a person who helps remove the personal and environmental obstacles to recovery, links the newly recovering person to the recovering community and serves as a personal guide and mentor in the management of personal and family recovery. In this webinar you will learn what motivational interviewing is and how it aids in the change process and communicates acceptance. Rich and Rob will present an overview of the Recovery Coaching program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. They will also share the data they have collected from their program about the use of recovery coaching in the treatment of substance use disorder.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the UMassMemorial Medical Center’s Recovering Coaching program as a method to treat substance use disorder.
  • Learn what motivational interviewing is and how to use motivational interviewing in goal-centered, and client-centered situations.
  • Learn what is measured when evaluating whether recovery coaching is a successful treatment for substance use disorder.
  • Understand the data that has been collected about the success of the Recovery Coaching program at the UMassMemorial Medical Center.

Reflections on the MLA Public Library Symposium

Tue, 2018-07-31 13:52

Written by April Wright, NNLM All of Us Community Engagement Coordinator, National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM), Southeastern/Atlantic (SEA) Region. For questions, please e-mail April Wright

Being new to health sciences libraries, I had no idea of the possibilities that awaited me. Having worked in public libraries for several years, I understood the delights and challenges of learning, through questions patrons asked. Health related information is one of the more difficult topics I encountered when working in public libraries.  I knew about MedlinePlus as a “source for reliable health information,” but not about the broader world of resources the National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides enabling health consumers to find discover much of what they need.  Public librarians are uniquely poised to help their users navigate that world and guide them toward being engaged in and well-informed about their health outcomes.

The MLA Symposium: Health Information for Public Librarians opened the door to equipping public librarians with the tools for developing expertise and creating sustainable health information literacy initiatives.  These tools include the opportunity to earn a  Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS) Certification through participation in free classes offered by the NNLM regions and access to a number of additional benefits available to public librarians by becoming a free NNLM network member.

The NLM Strategic Plan, NNLM’s partnership with the Public Library Association PLA in its Health Literacy initiative, and NNLM’s All of Us Community Engagement Network  provide a cohesive incubator for health information literacy programming and services in public libraries to grow and thrive.  Participants were encouraged to create a Library Program/Service Action Plan and a Professional Development Action Plan to help engender a sense of commitment to their role as health information stewards after the Symposium experience.  Given the discussions at the end of the second day and the following comments, it feels like we are off to a great start!  Some of our participating members provided the following feedback:

As someone who works in a public library, it was very enlightening to learn more about the world of medical librarianship and the potentials for collaboration in our community around disseminating consumer health information. The MLA conference helped me gain more knowledge on the health reference interview, as well as ways to train staff on best online health resources and titles. I will definitely be accessing more MLA and NLM/NNLM resources for my public library as we promote health literacy to the public.  –Elizabeth Roth, Be Well Program Coordinator, Nashville Public Library

I am looking forward to having our library promote the All of Us Initiative.  In addition, I was so intrigued by the scope of the research presented about the All of Us initiative at the symposium, I signed up as a participant myself.  In the workshops, I learned so much about leveraging our position as a known reliable source of information in the community into becoming a hub for medical and health resources that I could not jot everything down fast enough. – Joslyn Bowling Dixon, Assistant Director, Prince William Public Library System

It was a great experience for me to attend the National Medical Library Association Symposium where I conversed with public library staff members from other states and also members of the medical library field.  After hearing about Medline Plus and returning to the Waynesboro-Wayne County Library, I instructed our library staff to place an icon on our sixteen public access computers so that we can encourage our patrons to utilize this informative database.  I also posted the benefits of using this website on the library’s Facebook page as well. – Patsy C. Brewer, Library Director, Waynesboro-Wayne County Library

If you participated in the MLA Symposium: Health Information for Public Librarians, I would love to hear your thoughts and how you used the information to provide health information within your library!

Research Data Management Webinar Series: Approaching Resistance to Change in Research Data Management – August 3 2018

Wed, 2018-07-25 08:45

Guest Speaker: Amanda Rinehart, Data Management Librarian at the Ohio State University

Time: Friday, August 3rd 2 PM ET/1 PM CT / 12 PM MT/11 AM PT

To register: https://nnlm.gov/class/approaching-resistance-change-research-data-management/8790

Description: Federal funding agencies now emphasize data sharing and re-use as part of the grant review process. However, difficulties in data sharing and re-use begin with basic data management practices. If data is not appropriately documented, organized, and readily available, then sharing cannot result in re-use. Appropriate data management may be a new expectation for many researchers, and as such, may require an individual to adopt, or invent, particular innovations. Many researchers do not know what is required to prepare their data, let alone how to incorporate more time-consuming tasks into their current workflows. Thus, researcher concerns regarding these new expectations needs to be assessed in order to provide appropriate educational interventions. This webinar will cover both work using the Concerns Based Adoption Method to identify specific researcher concerns and anecdotal experiences from working with researchers who are not yet comfortable with new data management practices.

Speaker Bio: Prior to becoming a librarian, Amanda spent eleven years as a biologist with the USDA, testing alternative agricultural methods to reduce the human impact on climate change. She draws extensively on this research experience while developing the Libraries research data management program. This program includes consultation services, workshops, development of educational materials, and teaching. She also administers Ohio State’s DMPTool software, which helps researchers create high quality data management plans that meet funder requirements. Amanda received her MLIS from South Florida University, her MS in Botany and Plant Pathology from Michigan State University and her BA in Biology from Kenyon College.

Beyond the SEA Webinar: HIV Prevention and Information Outreach Panel Discussion – August 2, 2018 2:00 PM ET

Mon, 2018-07-23 15:08

Date/Time: Thursday, August 2, 2018, 2:00 PM ET

Contact: For additional information or questions, please contact Ashley Cuffia.

Pre-Register: Pre-registration is strongly recommended, but not required. Visit our registration page to sign up!

Part 1: South Florida Transgender Women and HIV Prevention Outreach

Presenters: Hector R. Perez-Gilbe, Research Librarian for the Medicine, Public Health, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacology, Science Library, University of California, Irvine; Francisco J. Fajardo, Instruction & Information Services Librarian, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, Medical Library, Florida International University

Abstract: Providing outreach to marginalized and underrepresented communities is a difficult task for researchers and even more so for information professionals.  One solution to overcoming this challenge is to collaborate with other departments at your institution or community-based organizations with working experience with these populations.

This presentation will discuss such a collaboration between the Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine’s Department of Humanities, Health and Society and the Robert Stempel College of Public Health and Social Work, where we identified the socio-economic and behavioral risks factors associated with HIV infection in the transgender women population of South Florida.  By doing this, we were able to understand the need for HIV prevention interventions through customized services and programs. The Herbert Wertheim Medical Library’s role in this research to was providing a resource guide containing links to primary care providers and social services available to the participants and community-based organizations.

Part 2: HIV/AIDS Information Outreach in North Central Florida

Presenter: Hannah F. Norton, Reference & Liaison Librarian, Associate University Librarian, Health Science Center Libraries, University of Florida

Abstract: This presentation will discuss an outreach project conducted by the University of Florida Health Science Center Library to improve awareness of and access to reputable HIV/AIDS information from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). Project activities included trainings for healthcare and social service professionals, the general public, and public library staff; creation of brief videos highlighting local resources and of easy-to-read print materials, and hosting a collaboration-facilitating event.

As with previous information outreach projects, collaborating with partners on and off campus has made these activities possible.  Public libraries, which are more embedded in our local community and more accessible to community members than on-campus facilities, have served as important venues for trainings, collaboration events, and talks.  Creative leadership for video and print material development has come from on-campus partners.  The collaboration event enabled representatives of UF and community organizations with an interest in HIV/AIDS to interact with each other in speed meetings – sharing assets, networking, and identifying commonalities, which has strengthened their bonds and encouraged referrals and non-duplication of efforts.

Panelist Bios: Hector Perez-Gilbe is the Research Librarian for Medicine, Public Health, Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. He’s primary responsibilities involves the management of the health sciences collections. He’s also involved in teaching EBM and other health related instructions. He also provide assistance with systematic reviews and research to the UCI faculty/staff and students. Hector has a MPH in Epidemiology from FIU Robert Stempel College of Public Health and Social Work. He is currently working on a research project involving transgender women in South Florida and HIV prevention.

Frank Fajardo is the Information & Instruction Services Library at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine Medical Library at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. His primary work focuses on reference and research support services to all medical faculty and students, outreach/support to community-based medical faculty, and LGBTQA health topics.  He also co-chairs the university Safe Zone training program, which raises awareness, knowledge, and sensitivity of issues affecting the LGBTQA community.  Frank also volunteers with various LGBT community based organization in the South Florida area.

Hannah Norton is a Reference & Liaison Librarian at the University of Florida Health Science Center Libraries.  Her primary responsibilities include reference, instruction, and research support for UF’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Medicine, and medical students.  Her research interests include health information outreach, teaching of evidence-based practice, library support for e-science and data curation, and library as place.
