Patient/Health Education: The Librarian's Role. Proceedings of an Invitational Institute (February 5-9, 1979).
Larson, Miriam T., Ed.
This report includes papers dealing with various facets of the library's role in filling the lay health education need and the appropriate responses to that need as conceived by the conference participants; the total content reflects the input from medicine, nursing, social work, community medicine, law, voluntary health agencies and national institutions, as well as from librarianship. In addition to papers presented by members of an interdisciplinary symposium on the issues, problems, and opportunities of health education, the report contains information on the following: (1) alterntive patterns of cooperation in a variety of settings; (2) library materials supporting health education; (3) legal, ethical, and social dimensions of health education; and (4) establishing and maintaining health resource centers. An evaluation and a discussion of the conferences are included, and appendices provide a program of the institute, a list of participants, a pre-measurement instrument, a post-measurement instrument, and a communication to the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science. Tables illustrate a number of points brought out at the conference. (FM)
