Learning to Liaise with Health Professions

Class Details

Join MAR, David Nolfi (Duquesne University) and Carolyn Schubert (James Madison University) for "Learning to Liaise with Health Professions." Health professions programs are growing rapidly and in numerous disciplines, each with their own distinct standards and cultures of practice. Attendees will explore various health professions and educational environments, such as community colleges, hospitals, universities, and more. Next, the course will focus on how educational standards for health professions inform library instruction, research support, and collection services. The instructors will share best practices for working with health professions from the literature and personal experience; participants will also be able to provide feedback and share their experiences.

Following this workshop, the learners will be able to:
• Describe the different professional roles, requirements, and academic environments of allied health professions in order to adapt library services and resources
• Explain the relationship between health profession certification, academic program accreditation, library instruction, and collection development

This program is approved for 1.5 MLA CE Contact Hours.
