What's Cooking? A Taste of the Future
2009 NAHSL Annual Meeting
Samoset Resort, October 25-27, Rockport, ME
This poster describes the development of a novel cross-institutional collaboration between librarians and faculty from a pharmacy school and a medical school to enhance the teaching of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) in each other’s school. Specifically, it focuses on the librarians’ active role in bringing shared cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary expertise to the table. Collaboration initiatives described include the joint development of EBP educational modules, EBP pharmacotherapy case studies, EBP Pharmacology elective course, formal and informal meetings, campus visits, and teaching observations. The poster provides a roadmap of starting such collaboration. In addition, it highlights the value of building strategic relationships between faculty and librarians across institutions to share expertise and teaching responsibility to advance student learning.
