Evidence shows that there are marked health disparities between those living in rural areas versus their urban counterparts. Not only do rural residents suffer from higher incidence of chronic illness, they also have limited access to primary care services and are more likely to be uninsured or under-insured. This session will describe hallmarks of rural America, identify other access challenges of living in rural communities, and equip participants with tools to ue in service the health information needs of those living in rural communities.

Fundamentals of Data Visualization

Contact: Jackie Wirz
Contact: 503.494.3443 - http://libguides.ohsu.edu/wirz - Pacific Northwest region
Data is everywhere, but too often, its presentation is about as interesting as a wet dishrag. I believe that data can be engaging when presented with clarity and style. This talk will discuss the basic principles of good visual design. Along the way, I will present case studies on the good, the bad and the ugly in data visualization. Participants will learn the fundamental aspects of visual perception, graphical design, and information presentation. These skills can be taught to patrons and library staff alike, and will help all gain better insight into our data and information through good visual design. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but excellent visualization of data is priceless.

Informatics for Librarians: Peeling the Onion

Contact: PJ Grier and Dean Karavite and Jacqueline Leslovec
Contact: 410.706.2855 - http://www.hshsl.umaryland.edu/ - All region
OBJECTIVE: Clinical informatics is described as the “intersection of computer science, health sciences and information science.” The objective is to explore this intersection and ascertain the “front-facing” skills that librarians, a.k.a information scientists, bring to the field of clinical informatics and healthcare information technology. The demand for informaticians is expected to outstrip supply by 2015 because of federal healthcare reform initiatives launched in 2004. As a result, workforce development programs are now in place to help mitigate this shortage with some programs of interest to librarians. METHOD: Because clinical informatics spans the complex gamut of the patient care delivery spectrum, the methodology will use a focused survey approach. The approach will mix academic and hospital based experiences. RESULTS: Health sciences librarians will have better knowledge and a greater understanding of clinical informatics and their potential participation in it.
