The National Patient Safety Foundation initiative to increase awareness about patient safety among health professionals and the public (because everyone is a patient at some point) is ongoing, but culminates in Patient Safety Awareness Week March 12-18. Health care consumers can get involved by spreading the word, advocating for patients that are friends and family, or sharing a memorial of someone who was harmed or died as a result of medical error. Health care professionals can advocate at their institutions and use campaign materials to educate colleagues.
The Center for Patient Safety also has a handy toolkit of templates and materials to use in the patient care facilities.

Mind-altering drugs have been used throughout the history of America. While some remain socially acceptable, others are outlawed because of their toxic, and intoxicating, characteristics. These classifications have shifted at different times in history, and will continue to change. The six banner traveling exhibition Pick Your Poison: Intoxicating Pleasures & Medical Prescriptions explores the factors that have shaped the changing definitions of some of our most potent drugs, from medical miracle to social menace.
A “Digital Gallery” offering a selection of digitized, historical texts from the History of Medicine Division’s diverse collections can be found as part of the online version of the exhibition.
Stop by and view the six panels through March 18, 2017.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the National Museum of American History.
February 7th is the kickoff date for HSL’s Spring 2017 series of workshops, with the popular No Experience EndNote for Health Sciences. We’re also offering the popular Prezi, and new this semester, an Introduction to Systematic Review Methodology and Creating and Using Infographics for Education.
Check out our entire schedule of HSL Workshops, and register for the one that fits your schedule. Note we have a nifty new calendar based registration system that shows how many seats remain in each class.
Hope to see you at one of our instruction sessions! All workshops take place downstairs in room B2C, inside our lower level silent study area.
Opoid or narcotic addiction is a nationwide epidemic. MedlinePlus, the National Library of Medicine’s Consumer Health resource, has a new page on Opoid Abuse and Addiction.

Little Bonnie was thrilled to have lots of loving hands to pet her during HSL’s Therapy Dog Days held Monday, Dec. 12, Tuesday Dec. 13, and Wednesday Dec. 14 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm on the lower level. If you didn’t have a chance to meet Bonnie, she’d like you to know she turns 15 years old today, Dec. 15!
Watch for our signs in the lobby in 2017 – therapy dogs will also be visiting HSL each month during the Spring semester.
