Evolving roles can lead to new goals

As experts in information management, medical librarians serving healthcare systems around the world are critical extensions of the clinical team and ideally positioned to help choose the solutions that will promote better decision-making and yield better patient outcomes.

Medical librarians need to amplify the value they deliver and communicate how investing in the most comprehensive reference tools for use at the point-of-care can deliver strategic support to clinicians and improve outcomes.

I am proud to be able to offer UpToDate to all of our staff. The feedback we get from our staff is always positive — not just in a clinical setting. Teaching staff use it too.

We no longer provide services typical of traditional libraries, but we have built a platform that allows the health professional to find updated information of good methodological quality and useful for clinical practice.

We’ve seen from the access numbers that users have really appreciated the content on Covid-19 that UpToDate has made available. We saw the importance of tools like these, which do an important job of updating quality content.
