Title: Using the Biomedical Library


1
Using the Biomedical Library Its
ResourcesBecoming Efficient Information Managers
  • BMD 201
  • Fall 2011

3
University of South AlabamaBiomedical Library
Sites
  • Baugh Biomedical Library Campus Site
  • Primarily supports the academic health sciences
    (College of Medicine, Colleges of Nursing
    Allied Health)

4
University of South AlabamaBiomedical Library
Sites
  • Third floor of the University Medical Center site
    and now called the Health Information Resource
    Center
  • Primarily supports the clinical medicine
    specialties-collection concentrates on patient
    care and treatment

5
University of South AlabamaBiomedical Library
Sites
  • Childrens and Womens Hospital site
  • Primarily supports obstetrics, gynecology, and
    pediatrics which is reflected by the librarys
    collection.

6
Objectives
  • Describe challenges inherent in using biomedical
    literature.
  • Become familiar with the USA Biomedical Librarys
    resources and services.

7
Objectives
  • Acquire, evaluate, utilize, and manage the
    information contained in the biomedical
    literature held at the USA Biomedical Library.

8
Biomedical Literature the Challenges
  • VOLUME
  • VARIETY
  • VARIOUS POINTS OF ACCESS
  • RELIABILITY

9
VOLUME
  • Set of journals pertinent to primary care
    physicians in 2002 found 7,287 articles are
    published monthly in this set of journals alone.
  • A physician trained in epidemiology would take an
    estimated 627.5 hours per month to evaluate
    articles pertinent to his practice.1

10
VOLUME
  • Nurses, who need to provide decision makers with
    relatively concise bottom-line estimates of
    effectiveness, report approximately 1,000
    systematic review and meta-analyses studies that
    focus on topics important to infection control
    professionals are published annually.2

11
VOLUME
  • In biomedical research, the amount of
    experimental data and published scienti?c
    information is overwhelming and ever increasing,
    which may inhibit rather than stimulate scienti?c
    progress.3

12
VARIETY
  • Primary information
  • Secondary information

13
The Medical Literature
  • Primary original research
  • Experimental (an intervention is made or
    variables are manipulated)
  • Randomized Control Trials
  • Controlled trials
  • Observational (no intervention or variables are
    manipulated)
  • Cohort studies
  • Case-control studies
  • Case reports

14
The Medical Literature
  • Secondary reviews of original research
  • Meta-analysis
  • Systematic reviews
  • Practice guidelines
  • Reviews
  • Decision analysis
  • Consensus reports
  • Editorial, commentary

15
RELIABILITY
  • Information on the Internet about head injury
    pertaining to intensive care less quantity and
    more quality is needed.(2006) PMID 16749874
  • Rating health information on the Internet
    navigating to knowledge or to Babel? (1998) PMID
    9486757

16
RELIABILITY
  • Accessibility, nature and quality of health
    information on the Internet a survey on
    osteoarthritis. (2005) PMID 15572390

17
What is Evidence Based Practice (EBP)
Short definition the integration of best
research evidence with clinical expertise and
patient values.4
18
Biomedical literature isoverwhelming and ever
increasing, which may inhibit rather than
stimulate scienti?c progress.
  • Information Management
  • Focuses on using
  • valid information
  • that which is relevant
  • that which is accessible

19
Do you need
  • Practice Guideline/Evidence
  • Professional literature (journal articles)
  • Consumer/Patient Info
  • A fact or data set
  • To contact a colleague
  • News item, image, or ???
