Class Details

Financial health literacy occurs at the intersection of managing personal finances and health literacy. In this hour-long webinar we’ll explore the four components of financial health literacy and how librarians can support education and awareness to empower health consumers as they navigate complex issues of terminology, insurance, unexpected costs and financial barriers to healthcare. Better understanding the financial aspects of healthcare provides one key to unlocking health equity and wellness.

From teaching systematic reviews to working with nursing students and faculty, the health sciences have always been an integral part of her library journey. Her current research interests focus on consumer health and healthcare equity. In addition to completing the MLA Consumer Health Information Specialization and a certificate in medical writing and editing, Heidi is an RYT-200 yoga teacher specializing in yoga nidra.

Biomedical and health sciences librarians are invited to participate as students or mentors in a rigorous online training course going beyond the basics of research data management. This course will expand on concepts covered in RDM 101: Biomedical and Health Research Data Management Training for Librarians, and threaded throughout will be the librarian’s role in research reproducibility and research integrity and include practice in using Jupyter notebooks. Mentors will assume the role of a researcher with a dataset seeking data services support and will scope research questions to form the basis for mentee projects.

The major aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the support of data science and open science with the goal of developing and implementing or enhancing data science training and services at participants’ institutions. This material is essential for decision-making and implementation of these programs, particularly instructional and reference services. The course topics include an overview of data science and open science, data literacy, data wrangling, data visualization, and leadership. The course will run February 20 – April 12, 2019. Both student and mentor applications are due January 4, 2019. Additional details and application can be found here.

The Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association Annual Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, is just around the corner.  On Saturday October 6th, the GMR will be providing two separate continuing education courses during the event. Each will provide 4 MLA contact hours of continuing education. More details here.

Open Science for Health Sciences Librarians: Open Science pursues the goals of transparency in experimental methodology, observation, and collection of data; publicly availability and reusability of scientific data; public accessibility, and using web-based tools to facilitate collaboration. This course will offer an overview of the role of open science and its components in health sciences research, its implementation throughout the workflow of the research process, locating and creating open sciences policies for use at your institution, and assessing open source tools currently available.

Precision Medicine: Precision medicine is an approach to disease management that considers individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. This course will provide participants with some baseline knowledge of genomics, an overview of the clinical applications of genomic medicine, an appreciation of the associated ethical and social issues inherent in this field and a review of NLM resources for health professionals and consumers.

The GMR is currently in the process of conducting a training needs assessment to help us better understand the needs of the community colleges within our 10-state region.  If you are a community college librarian or community college faculty member – or if you know and are willing to share this survey with one– we would greatly benefit from any feedback that we might receive. Please note that the GMR is seeking feedback from just member institutions.

The survey link is: https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9pFR8aOwNtspqnj.

We are eager to hear from you to better support and develop training opportunities for community colleges.  If you have any questions, please send them my way.

The GMR invites our hospital librarians to share their feedback about NLM’s new strategic plan. In response to our first call for feedback, several hospital librarians submitted responses, which generated discussion at the annual MLA meeting. National Library of Medicine Director Dr. Patti Brennan has requested additional feedback from this group, and for this purpose our office will facilitate an informal meeting for our hospital librarians.

I invite our hospital librarians to join us for a virtual meeting on Monday, July 2, at 10:00 AM CDT. If you are unable to attend, we welcome your feedback and recommendations via e-mail instead.

You can connect to the meeting by either computer or phone using the following information.
