    • Access to Health Information: Outreach Efforts to Ronald McDonald House Augusta

      Bandy, Sandra L.; Brewster, Tamara; University Libraries (Georgia Regents University, 2015-10)
      Objective: The library seeks to improve the use of reliable electronic health information to fill this information need for an under-served population in crisis. In 2014, a new and larger Ronald McDonald House (RMH) opened in Augusta across a shared parking lot of the Robert B, Greenblatt, M.D. Library. Currently, there are no health information resources available in the house. The house staff/volunteers have shared that they have received questions about health information but are advised not to give medical advice. Methods: A computer designated for accessing health information and a small selection of printed materials has been made available within the RMH. The library is in position to train the RMH house staff/volunteers on consumer health resources and how to evaluate reliable web resources. This will allow them to promote authoritative health resources for families/caregivers of children who are receiving medical treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. A health information web page has been developed and is accessible through the RMH portal. This web page is also being used as a class outline for hands-on computer training sessions for RMH staff. Results: The results of the training within the past six months will be presented along with suggested improvements for the staff who are teaching caregivers how to access health information. Conclusion: Parents will do anything for their child, especially when they are sick. Often they turn to the internet searching for answers. The library recognized the potential to build a positive partnership with the community. Using our expertise to aid this under-served population will assist parents in finding authoritative and up-to-date information health information resources. This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore.

      Blake, Lindsay; Mears, Kim; Davies, Kathy J; Ballance, Darra; Shipman, Peter; Connolly-Brown, Maryska; Gaines, Julie K.; Georgia Regents University (Taylor & Francis, 2014-07-14)
      Librarians are increasingly moving out of the library and into the wider university setting as patrons spend more time seeking information online and less time visiting the library. The move to embed librarians in colleges, departments, or customer groups has been going on for some time but has recently received more attention as libraries work to find new ways to reach patrons that no longer need to come to the physical library. Few universities have attempted to embed all their librarians. This case study describes how one group of health sciences librarians dispersed its professional staff throughout its campuses and medical centers.

    • Administrative Policy Help

      Division of Institutional Effectiveness; Georgia Health Sciences University (2011)
      The Administrative Policy Library was transitioned to the Division of Strategic Support in January 2007. Since that time, the division has redeveloped the process for approving and publishing administrative policies. When Strategic Support was reorganized and changed to the Division of Institutional Effectiveness in 2011, they continued with this way of processing policies. This process includes a routing procedure that more systematically documents policy actions and which provides for appropriate engagement of all senior leaders in adopting new polices or major revisions to policies. Such policy actions require the endorsement of President’s Cabinet prior to approval by the President. Minor revisions to policies,decommissioning of policies, and transfer of ownership of policies do not require leadership endorsement but must be approved by the responsible Cabinet member and the President.
