Partnering for Success: Message from the Associate Dean

The expectation that the practice of medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and social work be evidence-based compels educators and librarians to effectively incorporate research education into health sciences curricula. With curriculum renewal efforts well underway in the six Health Sciences Schools and standards of care in a constant state of flux, it is imperative that health sciences professionals have the ability to competently interpret the quality of evidence in medical research publications and have access to the essential resources. Our librarians at the University of Washington Health Sciences Library must effectively teach students and clinicians how to think about the problem, which information to access, how to interpret the available evidence, and what to do if no or weak evidence exists. The librarians at the Health Sciences Library offer REDCap, expert searching, and research impact skills and support ORCID, NIH Biosketches, and MyNCBI services. We also participate in accreditation preparation and reviews, teach classes to departments and schools on various topics, and lay a foundation of critical thinking and lifelong learning skills to support research literacy.
