1 Morning Report and All That Katherine M. Anderson; MaryEllen Sievert; E. Diane Johnson; Deborah H. Ward J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library – University of Missouri-Columbia contact: New Services to Child Health In October 2005, the Health Sciences Library at the University of Missouri-Columbia introduced a clinical librarian service for interns, residents, and faculty of the Department of Child Health. The clinical librarian attends Morning Report, an educational conference for interns and residents. The librarian listens for gaps in knowledge during the conference; searches for answers to questions both expressed and implied; and reports findings to the group. The librarian also works with individual interns and residents on finding answers to clinical questions and teaches sessions on evidence-based practice. Keys to Success Build on prior relationships Find faculty champions Say yes to non-librarian activitieslibrarian is involved in research project on impact of Morning Report to resident education Evolution of Service Residents requested that librarian be present at Morning Report three days a week instead of initial once a week One session formalized into EBM Morning Report Increased contact with interns and residents outside of Morning Report Acknowledgements Thank you to all the interns, residents, and attendings for their support of this service! Assessing Impact: Quantitative Measures All questions are logged using an Access Database. From October 2005 – March 2006, the clinical librarian addressed 298 separate questions within the context of 205 contacts. Median time spent per contact: 0.5 hours (range 0.2 – 8 hours) Assessing Impact: Qualitative Measures Access Database contains a Kudos field to capture informal feedback. To gather structured feedback on the impact of the new service, two outside researchers interviewed five residents and faculty, using the critical incident technique. Selected Findings: Conclusions In its first 18 months, the clinical librarian service has served to create positive partnerships between the Department of Child Health and the Library. Participation in Morning Report has lead to new services and contacts both within and outside the Morning Report conference. Access database of contacts and questions Medical Sciences Building Getting ready for Morning Report Challenges Connecting with residents with varied schedules Managing a fluctuating workload Learning new terminology, jargon, and culture Conveying nuances of EBM searching in short timeframes Librarian seen as a time saver Librarian able to discern clinical importance of questions One faculty member felt that the inclusion of the librarian was a positive factor in increased board exam performance. Most importantly, by getting out of the library, librarians can learn a tremendous amount about how clinicians find and use information and can customize services accordingly.
