Becker Medical Librarian is a new columnist for the American Journal of Nursing

Susan Fowler

Becker Medical Librarian Susan Fowler has worked with nurses for several years to help them search the health sciences literature and find the information they need to inform their patient care, research, and education.  Susan also serves in the Interagency Council on Information Resources in Nursing (ICIRN). ICIRN is a voluntary group of librarians and nurses concerned with connecting nurses to library services and resources and produce a biannual publication, Essential Nursing Resources. Susan now uses her experience to co-write a column for the American Journal of Nursing (AJN). The column, “Nursing Resources” is intended to inform nurses about resources they can use in patient care, research, and resources that can be shared with patients to help increase consumer awareness and medical literacy. The first article for the column can be accessed using the link below (if you are on the WUSM network or have logged in to a Becker Proxy account you can access the full text by clicking on the red WUSTL Get it @ Becker box next to the citation):

“  Quality Health Information for Your Patients.”  American Journal of Nursing, 113, 64,65. doi:10.1097/01.NAJ.0000434180.83352.f0

Look for more installments of “Nursing Resources” in upcoming issues of the American Journal of Nursing.
