    • Immunization Policy

      Student Health; Georgia Health Sciences University (2010-05-17)
      6.15 Immunization Policy: The specific minimum immunization requirements at Georgia Health Sciences University are established by Board of Regents policy, which is periodically reviewed and modified. The Board of Regents policy allows Georgia Health Sciences University to enhance these requirements with the concurrence of the Chancellor of the University System of Georgia. Georgia Health Sciences University's specific immunization requirements are also periodically reviewed and modified. With the concurrence of the President of Georgia Health Sciences University and Chancellor of the University System of Georgia, individual colleges may require additional immunizations. All entering Georgia Health Sciences University students must provide the Georgia Health Sciences University Student Health Service (Student Health) with sufficient evidence that they are fully immunized and/or have proof of immunity with serological titer against Mumps, Rubella (German Measles), Rubeola (Red Measles), Polio, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Hepatitis Band Varicella (Chicken Pox). Students are also required to have had a PPD (tuberculin test) within three months prior to the first day of class at Georgia Health Sciences University and annually thereafter.

    • Importance of Chapter Membership: a 20-year Data Analysis

      Bandy, Sandra L.; Mears, Kim; University Libraries (Georgia Health Sciences University, 2012-10)
      Objective This project analyzes twenty years of recorded membership data from one of the fourteen chapters affiliated with the Medical Library Association (MLA). A search of the literature revealed national level program evaluations, new initiatives, and lessons learned but no Chapter-level articles specifically on membership. Outcomes will illustrate trends in membership and the possible need for stronger guidelines in retaining members. Methods Southern Chapter of the Medical Library Association has used FileMaker for recording membership information. Information includes years of service to the organization plus year joined, contact information, committee volunteer request, AHIP level, library type, and membership to MLA. The data collected is also used for the annual printed membership directory. Several data sets will be gathered to study the dynamics of the Chapter, longevity of members, and retention based on the introduction of a 2-year free student membership. Results From 1992 to 2012, the average membership for the Southern Chapter was 359 members. The highest membership occurred in 1996 with 402 members and the lowest membership occurred in 2006 with 285. Data trends demonstrate a drop in state membership levels in the corresponding state that hosted the annual meeting the following year. Membership rates also dropped when the annual meeting was hosted outside of the Chapter region. Development of new medical schools around the region resulted in a 62% increase in academic librarians’ membership while hospital librarians have seen a 45% drop in membership rates. Other data collected included types of MLA membership and librarians’ membership to the Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP). In 2008 the Chapter adopted a 2-year free student membership, with an average of 20 members per year since then. In its five year history, we have had 47 student members with 10 students joining the Chapter as a full member after the free membership expired. Conclusions According to the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), the average retention rate is between 82%-90%. Southern Chapter’s overall retention rate is 89%, affirming the value librarians receive through membership. Data also revealed that student retention is 63%, which is below acceptable ASAE guidelines so additional support may be needed. A search of the literature suggested guidelines to increase retention rates of student members.
    • Improving Healthcare Stewardship with Embedded Diagnostic Consultation Services

      Hendren, Stephanie; Gunsolus, Brandy; Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library (Augusta University, 2018-11-19)
      Objective: To better inform physicians about how to find guidelines for diagnostic testing, and to provide clinical advice on which diagnostic tests should be ordered. Methods: A clinical laboratory scientist joined the Patient Care Rounding Team (PCRT) at Augusta University to provide consultation regarding diagnostic testing as part of the first national doctorate in Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) program. Documentation and analysis of diagnostics-related questions accumulated during PCRT rounds demonstrated the need for advice about diagnostic testing in clinician rounding. The PCRT did not have a defined logic model to order diagnostic tests, place the test orders, test methodology, and determine the clinical value (cost/benefit) of the tests. The Doctor of CLS resident requested an embedded librarian from Greenblatt Library provide evidence-based research to support clinical decisions to better inform the rounding teams. The librarian demonstrated how to systematically search for evidence to support the choice in diagnostic testing and how to interpret test results to the DCLS team. Results: Within the first eight months of the Doctor of CLS consultation service on PCRT, there were 1238 consultations that resulted in over $149,308 in cost savings. This was calculated by the Doctorate of CLS resident by accounting for eliminated unnecessary tests and revised ordered tests to better serve diagnostic needs. The librarian providing evidence-based research consulted on lesser known connections between symptoms and conditions, improving diagnostic clinical decision-making. Both the Doctor of CLS resident and librarian offered evidence and expertise that decreased inappropriate test utilization while potentially improving clinical outcomes. Conclusions: Informationists and other scientists can help a physician team be more responsible in their financial stewardship by reducing unnecessary testing and utilizing in-house resources.

    • Incomplete Grade Policy

      Registrar; Georgia Health Sciences University (2009-01)
      4.19 Incomplete Grade Policy: No individual may engage in any clinical or laboratory activity for the purposes of completing the requirements of a course in which he or she has an Incomplete grade (I) unless the individual is registered as a student at Georgia Health Sciences University. Registration as a student requires enrollment in a course and payment of appropriate tuition and fees. However, the student may not be re-registered in that same course for the purpose of meeting the requirement to be registered while making up the Incomplete grade; to do so would result in the student being awarded credit twice for the same course.Students with an Incomplete grade (I) who must return to school after their expected graduation date in order to complete assignments that include any clinical or laboratory activities must also be registered as a student. Likewise, however, the student may not be re-registered in the same course a second time.Therefore, each degree program shall establish an independent study course that will be used to meet the requirements of this policy. The course will be graded as Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory and will have a minimum of one credit hour. Registration in a course for the purpose of completing course requirements to remove an Incomplete grade (I) is not required if no clinical or laboratory activity is involved, for example, if only a paper, "Written assignment, and/or examination is involved.
    • Individual Conflicts of Interest Policy

      Office of Legal Affairs; Georgia Health Sciences University (2008-02)

This policy promotes objectivity in research by adopting federal standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, and reporting of research funded under Public Health Service (PHS) grants or cooperative agreements will be free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflicts of interest.
    • Informal Mediation Program Policy

      Office of Legal Affairs; Georgia Health Sciences University (2001-12)
      Georgia Health Sciences University recognizes the value of constructive conflict resolution. It promotes intellectual debate and heralds change, and as such, should be viewed as an opportunity for growth. The faculty, students, and staff of Georgia Health Sciences University are encouraged to seek an appropriate resolution to any conflict within our institution through discussion with those persons and departments which may be involved. If this does not resolve the conflict, the parties may seek the assistance of the informal mechanisms described in this policy.
