Knowledge Management across the Health Care Spectrum

The 2012 DBIO Medical Section program will take a look at the KM world within the health care spectrum.  During the panel discussion, we'll take a look at what knowledgement management means within this field, hear how one medical librarian is playing a role in knowledge management at her organization, and learn how we can advocate for ourselves to take on knowledge management responsibilities.  There will be plenty of time for audience questions and discussion.  While this panel will focus on various roles in the health sciences, anyone interested in learning more about KM and getting involved in this new role is welcome to attend!

Evidence-based Healthcare and the Cochrane Collaboration

The non-profit Cochrane Collaboration works to help health care providers make well-informed decisions about care based on the best available evidence. The group creates, updates, and promotes the accessibility of Cochrane Reviews – internationally recognized as the benchmark for evidence-based clinical review.

This session will provide insight into Cochrane’s purpose, scope, goals, and processes as the global focus on evidence-based medicine and comparative effectiveness research intensifies, while also providing a "behind the scenes" look at the role of information professionals in the creation of these reviews.
