Upcoming Class on Consumer Health Services

Posted by on March 6th, 2017 Posted in: Consumer Health, Outreach, Public Health


Interested in consumer health? Registration is now open for the spring offering of the 4-week online class Health and Wellness @ the Library: The Essentials of Providing Consumer Health Services. This free online course defines the core competencies of providing consumer health information services and then dives directly into the essential skills and knowledge that library staff need to build those competencies. Attendees will participate in a robust class that includes four weeks of interactive instruction, discussion, and activities followed by an additional week to complete a final project. This course was developed to help all library staff provide excellent services and health information to consumers, patients, students, and other members of the community.

Due to the comprehensive nature of this class, participants can expect to spend between 3 and 4 hours per week to fulfill the requirements of this course. Upon completion, participants will be awarded 12 Medical Library Association (MLA) CE units. In addition, this is an approved CHIS class; participants who complete the class are eligible to apply for Level I or Level II of the Consumer Health Information Specialization from MLA.

NNLM librarians Kelli Ham, Consumer Health Librarian from the Pacific Southwest Region (PSR) and Bobbi Newman, Community Engagement and Outreach Specialist from the Greater Midwest Region (GMR) are teaming up to teach this class!

The class will run from March 20 – April 21, 2016. We will be using Moodle for this free, self-paced class. More information will be sent out to registrants by March 17, and the course will open Monday morning, March 20th. Visit the Class Details page to Register today.

NOTE: If this time frame doesn’t work for you, the next session will be taught in June.

Please contact Kelli by email if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest in this NNLM course!
