RML Rendezvous - Health Information Literacy RML Rendezvous - Health Information Literacy Presentation Transcript

  • Health Information Literacy Pilot Project April-June 2008 Complete report: J Med Libr Assoc. 2009 October; 97(4) 293–301
  • Purpose of the project
    • Gather data on “administrators’ and hospital-based health care providers’ perceived value of consumer health information resources and of librarians’ roles in promoting health information literacy in their institutions.” (J Med Libr Assoc. 2009 October; 97(4): 293–301 )
    • 9 sites selected in the United States and Canada to participate
    • Institutions chosen DO NOT currently offer consumer health information services
  • How we implemented the project
    • 3 training sessions at the Billings Clinic, one booth at the annual Employee Health and Safety Fair at Billings Clinic
    • Made contact with approximately 150 health care providers
    • Distributed literature from both the National Library of Medicine and handouts and flyers developed by the Billings Clinic Library
    • We also developed our own version of the InfoRx pad and included those in our packets as well
  • Readability Example
  • Examples of our handouts
  • Original InformationRx form and our modified version
  • Outcomes
    • As a whole
    • Positive, measureable outcomes in raising awareness about the role librarians can play in patient education
    • At the Billings Clinic Medical Library
    • Increased awareness of the Library’s resources and services as consumer health information providers
    • Increased awareness of the costs to both patients and healthcare institutions of health information literacy-and the measureable positive impact consumer health education has financially and in individuals’ personal lives
  • How has this inspired us?
