Library Grand Rounds [Archives]
Health Divided: Medicine, Public Health, and their Different Literatures
Handout #1 (PDF)
The Biomedical Libraries's May 15 Library Grand Rounds explored finding information and evidence in public health. Public health--or "population health"--is a diverse area. Sources of information are widely dispersed. Clinicians have models and resources for finding relevant information and "best evidence" to use in support of care for individual patients, but... What about "public health"? What information resources does it use? How should its approach be different?
Using case studies, our speakers discussed and demonstrated the available resources, techniques, and issues.
Library Grand Rounds are a forum for presenting information resources and tools of interest to Dartmouth clinicians. Please contact us (email@example.com), if you have questions, comments, or suggestions for future Library Grand Rounds.
