Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Hello, I am Ruth and I joined @NHS_HealthEdEng as LKS lead for Midlands and East on 3 April, most info literacy in vol sector #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
Hi all! I'm Holly, Outreach Librarian @SASHLibs I think I do the usual librarian stuff to promote info lit #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
Q1 tonight is this: Information literacy has been described as a key compenent of evidence-based practice. Do we agree? #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
Sam here (on holiday this week!) & we support IL in various ways - not immediately obvious ways though! #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q1 Information literacy is part of both accessing the best evidence and ensuring that it is understood #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
Q1 absolutely - an understanding of how to interpret that info is critical. (No blind acceptance!) #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
Welcome, Sam, Ruth, Holly, Lisa…and the lurkers out there #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
Q1. Yes! Recognition of evidence as a need is information literacy #ukmedlibs
Igor @iroberger
Hello, Igor here, 2nd clinical librarian @BrightonSx_LKS, tonight dipping in and out from afar #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
Not concentrating oops #ukmedlibs https://t.co/L0edZU2L03
Sam @samanthaclare
Don't forget it's #ukmedlibs night tonight! Come and talk to us about information literacy.
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
Q1 And the ability to both locate and appraise that evidence …..? #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@pipdivall are you about?! #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
Yep https://t.co/Tb2eYnsV9n
Tom Roper @tomroper
@samanthaclare @pipdivall We gave you a name check for your #lilac17 papers #ukmedlibs :-)
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
That being so, what do we think of the levels of information literacy among health professionals? Be frank (but not libellous) #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@Lifuinthelib Nicely put #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@UKMedLibs It can be good. But I'm always surprised, like being asked how to tell the difference between a book & an article #ukmedlibs
Louise @louisewann
@UKMedLibs Q1 I think they recognise the importance of IL and how it relates to eb practice,but don't always have skills or time #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
Pretty low, but not from lack of willingness. Time and earlier gaps in training a factor? #ukmedlibs https://t.co/FteSoiW8MJ
Tom Roper @tomroper
I think it’s uneven. I’m sometimes puzzled that undergraduate health professional courses don’t seem to have covered it fully #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
Levels of info literacy vary hugely. It's concerning when people seek out info/evidence to FIT their picture. #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q2 work by NHS England suggests gaps in both health literacy and information literacy of health professionals #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
But at least they recognise a gap in knowledge! Plus, new resources like ClinicalKey bring up everything #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@RuthCarlyle Interesting, Is that work published? #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@RuthCarlyle what work is this? Would be good to quote figures at people! 😄#ukmedlibs
Igor @iroberger
@UKMedLibs Info lit levels among health professionals simmilar to fake news spotting ability of general public (imho - should be higher) #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q2 I agree it is variable and not due to lack of willingness or seeing as unimportant #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
In theory better discoverability/built in appraisal tools etc makes IL redundant? @Hollingtonn #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@samanthaclare This is pilot work in the East Midlands, I am due to attend a workshop on it next week #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@iroberger @UKMedLibs that's a great way of putting it!! #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@RuthCarlyle @samanthaclare We’ll watch with interest #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@UKMedLibs Not yet published, but work in East Midlands is focus of initial work on steps to test improvements #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@RuthCarlyle agreed but I also think that sheer lack of time doesn't help and fast info (e.g. colleagues) isn't always best. #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@UKMedLibs @RuthCarlyle certainly will. #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@archelina Not necessarily, they still need to appraise what they've found. And understand when/how they need evidence in the 1st place! #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@archelina @Hollingtonn That’s where tools like @tripdatabase seem to be going #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
@Hollingtonn Yes it's about embedding a critical approach rather than just being able to do stuff... #ukmedlibs
Igor @iroberger
@UKMedLibs @archelina @Hollingtonn @tripdatabase Info literacy includes knowledge of search tools, doesn't it? #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
How about Q3, new opportunities to teach information literacy? Both new ways, e.g. gamification /new content, e.g. social media #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@Hollingtonn interesting - we had a request for a lit search asking best method to obtain blood under restraint due to.... #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@UKMedLibs @archelina @tripdatabase Especially with resources like UptoDate & DynaMed where the evidence is summarised. I always point out source of info #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
@Hollingtonn ...a line in the policy suggesting a particular method that we can't find evidence for!!! #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q3 concerns about "fake news" have raised awareness of information literacy and may make it easier to embed #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q3 with teaching, it is a mix of needs-led teachable moments and integrating info literacy into wider training and into schools #ukmedlibs
Sam @samanthaclare
Definitely! Make it important to the individual too and then build up to the wider picture. #ukmedlibs https://t.co/qwV1Nenrpd
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@RuthCarlyle Danish public libraries have launched a "how to spot fake news" campaign #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
Q3 New ways to teach/support IL need to be suitable/tailored for our user groups @UKMedLibs #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
RT @Hollingtonn: @RuthCarlyle Danish public libraries have launched a "how to spot fake news" campaign #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@archelina @UKMedLibs So true! Can be the same needs, but completely different user group. #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@Hollingtonn @archelina @UKMedLibs A group of GPs I was working with wanted a quick info literacy tool they could use to judge their patients' level and needs #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
#ukmedlibs An aside, how well has SCONUL’s Seven Pillars model stood the test of time. Nearly 20 years old now! https://t.co/5o2izCPbgy
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@RuthCarlyle @archelina @UKMedLibs That would be very useful! #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@RuthCarlyle @Hollingtonn @archelina What did you suggest? Lots of tools to assess materials, e.g. DISCERN, less for people #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@UKMedLibs @Hollingtonn @archelina I did introduce DISCERN, but also asking which news sources used to get sense functional literacy #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@UKMedLibs I was reminding myself of the 7 pillars earlier; if treat digital literacy as separate then I think still stand #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
And that steers us towards Q5, about patient and public information literacy: what's our role? #ukmedlibs ( we'll come back to Q4)
Louise @louisewann
@UKMedLibs Q4. Signposting to high quality info? #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q5 wide range of roles support info literacy for patients and public, so often a case of referring on as much as supporting #ukmedlibs
Louise @louisewann
@UKMedLibs Sorry Q5 #ukmedlibs

Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
Q5 diagnosis with a serious health condition creates 'teachable moment' where voluntary sector can step in to help info literacy #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@RuthCarlyle Some lack of clarity on division of labour between us and public library services?#ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
Q5. Definitely signposting to quality info & supporting clinicians to feel confident to signpost too #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
Q5. Supporting our public libraries colleagues who are reviving patient info enquiries everyday #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@UKMedLibs There can be lack of clarity, we could create better partnerships to shape respective roles #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
Q5. Supporting our public libraries colleagues who deal with patient enquiries daily #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
We don't have anyone here tonight from the public and patient work stream of KfH, do we? https://t.co/uT4paYF0Pq #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@Lifuinthelib @UKMedLibs Liaison and communication could be basis of vibrant communities of practice #ukmedlibs
Igor @iroberger
@UKMedLibs @RuthCarlyle Public libraries should do more for general info literacy. partnerships would perhaps be effective in raising the game faster ... #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@UKMedLibs @RuthCarlyle We can support each other as both sectors have different expertise in this area #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
Q5 Also roles like input into writing patient information materials, social media curation...? #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@UKMedLibs Yep, me & @RuthCarlyle 😊 #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
RT @archelina: Q5 Also roles like input into writing patient information materials, social media curation...? #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
Can I throw in Q6 now, thinking about literacy more widely. Have you been involved in Books on Prescription, Six Book Challenge? #ukmedlibs
Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@archelina Evidence for patient information and appraising social media sources are critical roles #ukmedlibs

Dr Ruth Carlyle @ruthcarlyle
@Hollingtonn @archelina Q5 I suggest the Accessible Info Standard as well - pointing to accessible sources to meet mandatory standard #ukmedlibs
Shannon @srobalino
I made my rant re info professionals being heavily involved in doing/peer reviewing SRs without realising it was #ukmedlibs chat today
Pip Divall @pipdivall
Q4 real beauty of #lilac17 was being able to network across sectors. I got so many ideas that are applicable to PG health staff #ukmedlibs
Holly Case @hollingtonn
@UKMedLibs 6 Book Challange is more for those with lower literacy levels, so our local public library ran an adult reading challenge #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
@pipdivall #ukmedlibs A legendary conference. Am I right, they’re keen to have more health contributions? #ukmedlibs

Holly Case @hollingtonn
@UKMedLibs Q6. We've also taken part in Book Bingo, World Book Night and World Book Day #ukmedlibs
Pip Divall @pipdivall
I don't think we need to just consider the info literacy of the gen pub, but also all in NHS #ukmedlibs
Pip Divall @pipdivall
@iroberger @UKMedLibs @RuthCarlyle It's going to be difficult when they're mainly run by volunteers. #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
We're at 9, and I think we had a good chat (we arranged this one at short notice but was good) Thanks everyone for contributing #ukmedlibs
Rachel P @archelina
Q6 Can involvement in literacy or 'fun' events be stealth marketing for core nhs library services that people don't know exist? #ukmedlibs
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
#ukmedlibs Thanks everyone. Next chat is on the MAP toolkit https://t.co/DIsi643HOO 16 May, same time, same place
UKMedLibs @ukmedlibs
Goodnight everyone. #ukmedlibs
