From medical librarianship to medical informatics: My adventures with small data
“Consumer health informatics” as a term refers to that part of medical informatics that focuses on consumer and patient perspectives, simultaneously as users and contributors to information systems that empower them to manage their own health.  In this very broad field, any space in which consumers and patients interact with information and information systems is included. This includes the design and deployment of decision support tools, communication tools (patient to patient, or clinician to patient), and therapies that enhance interpersonal relationships. It also includes attention to health information sources themselves, for example, the quality of health information exchanged in online patient communities or made available on the Web. Finally, the effects on the larger society in which health information is exchanged are researchable questions in consumer health informatics. In this talk, I’ll explain how my beginnings as a medical librarian in academic and industry settings inform my current research agenda in consumer health informatics – and the ways in which all medical librarians are critical to the enterprise.

Continuing Education

Charting a new course: practical data visualization for librarians
Data visualization is used to communicate complex information and explore trends in large sources of data. Compelling data visualization requires thoughtful planning and execution; from understanding the data, choosing the right chart, balancing visual cues, and providing narratives to tell interesting stories. This course gives attendees a strong foundation in the principles of data visualization. In addition, attendees will use Microsoft Excel, a common but incredibly powerful tool, to visualize library-relevant data through a series of hands-on activities. Attendees will gain practical and immediately useful skills for visualizing both qualitative and quantitative data.
