The fact that patient safety is a "hot topic" is witnessed by the explosion
of website resources and organizations in the field that are addressing this
issue. There have been a number of questions on MEDLIB-L related to
librarians participating in patient safety within their institutions.  This
interactive seminar focuses on ways librarians can become more involved in
patient safety processes and activities - both within their institutions and
organizations and in providing patient safety resources for health
professionals, for administration and staff, and for patients and families.
Topics include understanding the definitions and issues of patient safety;
locating where patient safety practices and contacts exist within an
institution; identifying appropriate resources; and library advocacy in the
area of patient safety. These lecture, discussion and brainstorming sessions
will help librarians in all fields become effective agents for improving
patient safety.


Please join your HSLANJ colleagues for this two-part continuing education
webinar being offered at no charge on Wednesday, December 3rd and Wednesday,
December 10th.  2.5 MLA-approved continuing education hours will be awarded
to all participants.
