Resources for Nursing and Allied Health Care Professionals

Class Details

Hospital librarians in New England are reporting steady, or increasing, requests for assistance from nurses and allied health care professionals. For this webinar, we invited Yale University librarians Janene Batten (Nursing Librarian) and Alexandria Brackett (Clinical Librarian) to demonstrate methods of using PubMed and other National Library of Medicine resources for nursing and allied health questions.

The webinar begins with introduction of topic and our speakers. We will include demonstration on using National Library of Medicine free resources to leverage your collection (and budget) as well as how to use established search strategies to save you time. The session will conclude with time for questions and answers. The webinar will be recorded.

After this webinar, you will be able to:
1. Identify National Library of Medicine tools and resources available to hospital librarians.
2. Determine appropriate search strategies for supporting nursing research and patient care.
3. Demonstrate how hospital librarians navigate National Library of Medicine resources to stay on top of higher demands for service with limited resources.
