Abstract:
Question: How to integrate Librarians into existing clinical structures. Setting: Children’s and regional hospitals and clinics in Georgia where Georgia Health Sciences students and faculty are affiliated. Participants: Two Librarians at Georgia Health Sciences University located in two cities working with various hospital departments and faculty. Methods: Librarians work with departments in the hospitals and area clinics to integrate Evidence Based Medicine(EBM) and Patient and Family Centered Care(PFCC) into the medical student and resident education. Both of the Librarians are starting clinical librarian services. The services are in two different cities and stages in the medical education. One Librarian started in an established position working with residents and students in Family Medicine and Pediatrics, but had to rebuild after years of vacancy. The other Librarian is working with a new clerkship program so she is working directly with the clerkship directors to find ways to get involved with the students as they begin their clinical rotations. Main Finding: Librarians found various ways to assimilate themselves into the existing clinical structure. The methods they used varied by campus, hospital and/or department. Librarians were incorporated into a number of activities including: morning report, rounding, journal club, academic half days and scholarly projects. Conclusions: The Librarians found that various methods needed to be employed to incorporate their assistance in the hospital and clinical departments. The importance of communication and getting to know the clinical department environment and key players helps the Librarians to integrate into the structure.
