Program: How does being a research associate affect the role of the medical librarian
Gaelen Adam, Editor/Librarian/Research Associate, Center for Evidence-based Medicine, Brown University School of Public Health
I have been working as a librarian, editor, and research associate at Brown’s Center for Evidence-based Medicine for just over a year. As such, I am involved to a greater or lesser extent in most of the projects undertaken by the center and am rapidly developing a good working knowledge of the methods and tools used in EPC research. I have been an active member of the review teams for many of the EPC projects over the past year. In addition, I co-lead the topic development project “Technical Brief for Environmental Cleaning for the Prevention of Healthcare Acquired Infections” with Dr. Joseph Lau. Our recommendation that the topic be developed into a technical brief was accepted by the AHRQ topic triage committee, and an RFTO has been issued. I will talk about what it is exactly I do on a daily basis, and how that has affected my understanding of evidence-based medicine.
