Searching Clinically: How to Search, Find, and Assess Information at the Point of Care, Part 2

Sunday, May 5
4:30 PM - 5:55 PM
Room: Columbus EF (East Tower, Ballroom/Gold Level)

Working with health care teams at the point of care requires clinical awareness and the ability to quickly locate and assess case-relevant information. Through presentations, demonstrations, group activities, and discussion, you will learn about and practice how to quickly meet clinician information needs. This exceptional, double session is for librarians who work in a clinical setting, participate in rounds, or provide instruction at point of care.

Part 2 focuses on searching techniques that rapidly locate high-quality, case-relevant information, particularly for challenging clinical questions, using PubMed and other specialized point-of-care or evidence-based medicine resources, quickly judging quality and relevance of located information, and identifying the best methods of communication and information delivery.
