#ukmedlibs 15 March: the impact of clinical librarian services

March’s #ukmedlibs chat will look at the impact of clinical librarians, the subject of a major study published very recently in Health Information and Libraries Journal:

Brettle, A., Maden, M. and Payne, C. (2016), The impact of clinical librarian services on patients and health care organisations. Health Information & Libraries Journal. doi: 10.1111/hir.12136

[Free to CILIP HLG members. Login to the CILIP website and access the journal at http://www.cilip.org.uk/health-libraries-group/health-information-libraries-journal/access-health-information-libraries-journal-hilj)

This paper is the first large-scale study of the impact of clinical librarian services, based on work in the North-West of England, and offers tools for future research into impact.

We’re lucky to  have Alison Brettle to lead the discussion on this paper [and could any of your co-authors be persuaded to join in, do you think]

 

The chat takes place at 8 pm on Tuesday 15 March. Use the hashtag #ukmedlibs when participating.
