Introduction to Health Services Research : A Self-Study Course

Module 7: Librarians' Role in Health Services Research (Page 3 of 12)

Essential Concepts

This page provides key concepts from this module. It is intended to be a synopsis of the content in the module.

  • No assessment of technology, health care delivery, quality, or cost can affect practice and policy decisions unless people organize and disseminate that information widely.
  • The field of health services research allows librarians not only to expand their roles and influence but to contribute to the delivery of health care and to the improvement of health in our society.
  • Several reports have been published to address the educational needs of librarians to become more effective (and employed) members of the health care team.
  • As information workers, librarians are essential partners in furthering the health of the public.
