I am the Library Liaison to Nursing and work with the faculty, students and staff of the School of Nursing, as well as with nursing clinicians. I also serve on the hospital Nursing Research Council and teach in the OHSU Nursing Evidence Based Practice Fellowship. In my activities as Nursing Liaison, I teach about the importance of systematic reviews to nursing research, as well as how to find and interpret them. Professional development at the OHSU Library encourages library faculty to publish. Gaining the skills emphasized in the objectives of this workshop will not only help to inform my teaching, but give me added experience and tools to work toward the goal of publishing, in collaboration with nursing faculty.
