It’s National Medical Librarians Month: Learn the vital role librarians play in patient care

Did you know that October is the official month to celebrate medical librarians? This year’s theme is Make Better Decisions Faster: Consult Your Health Information Professional and is a great reminder that medical librarians can help you find credible health information quickly and efficiently.

Medical librarians access and deliver information for patient care, research, and publication. They help improve health outcomes for patients by providing evidence-based answers to important medical questions, sometimes in time-sensitive emergency room settings. Medical librarians save hospitals money and can improve the patient experience by helping cut down patient hospital stay time.

At Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, our medical librarians are here to help with systematic reviews, point-of-care resources like DynaMed, and more.

Visit our Jefferson Libraries website to learn how librarians can help you and schedule a consultation to meet at a convenient time.
