Introduction to Genetics Databases

Contact: David Osterbur and none
Contact: 617 432-2636 - North Atlantic region
Students in this class will learn about the freely available resources provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory/ European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL/EBI). All medical librarians are extremely familiar with Pubmed, one of the most commonly used of NCBI's resources, but very few are familiar with resources beyond PubMed and how these resources are all searchable with the same search strategies as are used in PubMed. We will explore the use of these free tools and the students will learn about some of the useful tools that even their research faculty members do not know about.

Health Literacy in Practice: Writing and Instructing in Plain Language

Contact: Nancy Goodwin and Margo Coletti
Contact: 860-358-6286 Fax: 860-358-6115 - North Atlantic region
Participants will identify the problem of low health literacy, its definition, and how it impacts patient outcomes. Using three broad principles of writing in plain language they will critique and rewrite poorly worded sentences and brainstorm in small groups how to rewrite a sample handout. Participants will share their experience with health literacy and list at least four ways that librarians can use this expertise in their health care institutions. The workshop begins with a PowerPoint lecture on basic concepts of health literacy. A lecture with a handout for participants to follow on creating patient handouts is next. Using sample handouts the participants will do several hands-on activities to practice their new skills. The second half will cover numeracy and Teach-back technique. Following that, we concentrate on the role of health literacy in the informed consent process. It will be a “train the trainer” session in which participants will learn how to instruct clinicians and researchers in the use of plain language in informed consent, both verbal and written. A PowerPoint lecture with sample informed consent language will be presented and examined. Small groups will be formed to reformulate “legalese” and “medspeak” into patient-readable language for the informed consent process.

NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course

Contact: James Cimino and Donald Lindberg
Contact: 301-443-9696 - - All region
This week-long survey course is designed to familiarize individuals with the application of computer technologies and information science in biomedicine and health science. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on computer exercises, participants will be introduced to the fundamental concepts and application areas of biomedical informatics. The conceptual components will include principles of controlled terminology, standards, mathematical modeling, bioinformatics, natural language processing, clinical information systems architectures, and methods for assessing and influencing institutional adoption of information technology. Application areas will include use of the Internet for biomedical applications, current and emerging wide area network technologies, use of literature and molecular sequence databases, telemedicine, public health, patient-centered care, clinical research, and disaster response. Evening workshops will include hands-on projects to give students the opportunity to bring their own expertise to bear and apply the lessons learned in class to a relevant informatics application. Taught by a nationally known faculty, the course will prepare the student to become actively involved in making informed decisions about computer-based tools in his/her organizational environment, and improve the student's own computer skills. This is a National Library of Medicine fellowship program directed at medical educators, medical librarians, medical administrators, clinical practitioners, and faculty who are not currently knowledgeable but can become agents of change in their institutions. Limited to 30 fellows per session. Costs of attending this course, including travel, housing, and meals at the Brasstown Valley Conference Center, are fully supported by the National Library of Medicine, NIH.
