    Attention Hospital Librarians: Attend the Patient Experience and
    Engagement Symposium at MLA '14

*Saturday, May 17th, 2014, 1:00 pm -- 5:00 pm*

*Cost: $200.00 (nonmember, $380)*

*MLA CE Contact Hours: 4*

Libraries and librarians have long been providing services and health 
information to patients and their families in the healthcare setting and 
in the community. With health care reform and the complexity of the 
entire health care system increasing, the move toward patient-centered 
care has reached the consciousness of almost every healthcare 
professional and institution.

/The Patient Experience and Engagement: Improving Patient Centered Care 
One Person at a Time Symposium /is designed for librarians and other 
information professionals working with patients, case managers, 
consumers and librarians on clinical care and health education teams. 
Through this symposium participants will gain a better knowledge of the 
many definitions of patient engagement and discuss and explore new and 
existing methods of how to connect the public and providers with quality 
health information resources and tools, including the Patient Engagement 
Framework. <http://www.nationalehealth.org/patient-engagement-framework>

This half day long symposium will consist of:

  * Keynote speaker, Stephen Wilkins, author of the blogMind the Gap
    <http://mindthegap.smarthealthmessaging.com/> , which discusses
    evidence-based insights on how physicians and patients communicate
    and engage with each other.
  * A panel of invited speakers who will provide their perspectives
    based on the role they play in their institutions or through their
    own experiences as patients. Keynote speakers include T. Schott
    Pulchack, Associate Professor and Director, Lister Hill Library of
    the Health Sciences, University of Alabama at Birmingham and Ruti
    Volk, a patient education librarian.
  * Small breakout sessions to discuss different patient engagement
    strategies introduced in the Symposium and those shared by the
    symposium participants.
