Health and wellness information for librarians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Health literacy is a very strong predictor of an individual’s health status. In fact, it’s a stronger predictor than education level, racial or ethnic group, and income or employment status. People with low health literacy are hospitalized more often, and for longer, and have worse treatment outcomes, due to gaps in communication between patient and health care provider. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and other new accountability measures, people are being asked to participate in their own health care decisions and outcomes. That makes health literacy more important now than ever. Librarians have many resources at their fingertips to promote health literacy and to provide high-quality information and learning experiences for their library users. The medical librarians from Intermountain Medical Center will share tips and training resources that librarians might not already know about, as well as apps and information sources that can put a focus on health for your library communities.
