Mobile Devices: Know the RISKS. Take the STEPS. PROTECT and SECURE Health Information

Logo-Health and Human ServicesAt the 2012 ONC Annual Meeting, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launched a new education initiative including a set of online tools to provide health care providers and organizations practical tips on ways to protect their patients’ protected health information when using mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

ONC is the abbreviation for the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, a position created by Executive Order in 2004 and written into legislation by the HITECH Act. The ONC’s purpose is to  promote a national health Information technology infrastructure and oversee its development.

The education initiative, called Mobile Devices: Know the RISKS. Take the STEPS. PROTECT and SECURE Health Information, is available at www.HealthIT.gov/mobiledevices. It offers educational resources such as videos, easy-to-download fact sheets, and posters to promote best ways to safeguard patient health information.

Join the Club- Book CoverBecome part of One Community/One Book 2013

Peer pressure can sometimes lead people to make unwise choices.  But it can also inspire courage and promote a more expansive vision of the world. According to Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tina Rosenberg , peer pressure draws its energy from the powerful human desire to be connected to others.  How peer pressure might be deployed in the service of better health is one question that will be considered during the UT Health Science Center’s 5th One Community/One Book program, which will feature Rosenberg’s book, Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World.

Book discussions will take place in February and March 2013, leading up to Rosenberg’s appearance on campus on April 4, 2013, as the keynote speaker at the annual Community Service Learning Conference organized by the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics.

The Libraries will offer the One Community/One Book workshop.  “How to Lead or Host a Book Discussion,” at noon on Thursday, January 24 and Monday, February 4, 2013.

Copies of Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World are available in the Briscoe Library, the Ramirez Library at the RAHC, and the library at the Laredo Regional Campus  (HM 831 R813j 2012) .  The book is also available at the UT Health Science Center Bookstore for $12.71 plus tax, a 25% discount off the retail price.

One Community/One Book 2013 is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  For more information contact Susan Hunnicutt, Special Projects Librarian:  Hunnicutt@uthscsa.edu  or (210) 567-2406.

Library-hosted workshops will explore Community Asset Mapping for CTSA Community Engagement

ctsa logoIn February and March 2013 the UT Health Science Center Libraries and the South Central and Lower Rio Grande Border AHECs will host Communities and Their Assets: Community Asset Mapping for CTSA Community Engagement.  Supported by a CTSA Community Engagement Pilot Project Award from the South Central Region of the National Networks of Libraries of Medicine, the program will bring together librarians from the six CTSA funded institutions in Texas, New Mexico and Arkansas.  It will encompass a 2-day event organized by the Briscoe Library in San Antonio on February 21 and 22,  followed by a 1-day event organized by the Ramirez Library in Harlingen on March 7.

At the San Antonio and Harlingen events librarians and other attendees will attend an Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) Workshop led by Dan Duncan, Adjunct faculty member of the ABCD Institute at Northwestern University. The workshop will be open by invitation to CTSA Librarians along with CTSA researchers, Key Function Group members, and administrators from regional and national CTSA institutions. Participating community groups will include health care providers, primary care physicians, community organization leaders, program administrators, public health workers, community health workers (promotores), public and academic librarians, Area Health Education Center (AHEC) board members, and university faculty.

The workshop will cover the principles of Asset-Based Community Development and how these principles can be used to identify a community’s assets.  The workshop will also open a dialog with community groups and explore opportunities to effect change in the role librarians play in the CTSA process.

On the second day of the event in San Antonio, librarians from CTSA institutions will convene for a strategic planning session led by Mary Flanagan, a nationally-recognized facilitator with Management Solutions Group. The purpose of the session will be to brainstorm about how librarians can be more actively involved in the future with CTSA Key Function Groups, CTSA administration, grant applications, research output and impact tracking, community engagement, and other CTSA initiatives.  The anticipated outcome of the strategic planning process will be a road map for librarian contributions and engagement with the work of the CTSAs.

For more information about Community Asset Mapping for CTSA Community Engagement contact Peg Seger, Head of Outreach Services, at segerp@uthscsa.edu.

This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Contract No. HHSN-276—2011-00007-C with the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library.

HSCLink: The best way to access PubMed article links

PubMed LogoIn order to take full advantage of links to articles in PubMed, it is necessary to access PubMed from the library’s website at http://www.library.uthscsa.edu.

A link to PubMed can be found in the Databases pull-down section of the The Libraries home page, or in the Library Search, Databases section of the page.   Although it can be tempting to access PubMed by going directly to its address, http://pubmed.gov, this will bypass the open url linking that librarians have set up for PubMed.

 

Library home page

PubMed should be accessed from the library website in order to link to current subscriptions.

 

HSClinkWhen accessing PubMed from The Libraries’ website, you will see the blue HSCLink button:

The HSCLink button will either open an article for which the library subscribes for the Health Science Center, or will provide information about how to obtain an article if the library does not have access.  This may include populating an interlibrary loan form to obtain the article from another library.

For more information about using links in PubMed, contact AskALibrarian@uthscsa.edu or call Information Services at 567-2450.
