The National Library of Medicine has announced the release of a new tutorial on MedlinePlus Connect. MedlinePlus is a website produced by NLM to provide high-quality health information written for the general public. MedlinePlus Connect is a tool that enables the integration of MedlinePlus resources into external systems like electronic health record systems, patient portals, and other applications.
This training session, of particular interest to hospital librarians and other health sciences information specialists, is intended to provide an introduction to what MedlinePlus Connect does and how, and to point to resources for implementing MedlinePlus Connect at your institution. Register for this on-demand class and complete it at your own pace to obtain one hour of Medical Library Association continuing education credit. Additionally, the course is eligible toward Competency 7, Technology and Health, for the MLA Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS).
