    Attend Biomedical Informatics What? The new frontier of research Posted Wednesday, February 22, 2012, 12:12 pm
    While biomedical informatics has been a part of the healthcare culture since the 1950s, the exponential increase in available medical literature has brought the field of study to the forefront. By examining the forthcoming advances in search techniques and data storage/retrieval, medical staff will better be able to keep pace with the paradigm shift in medical decision making.  According to Stead, et. al (2011) biomedical informatics is the interdisciplinary scientific field that studies and pursues the effective use of data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving, decision making, and communication.

    Sandi L. Bates MLIS, Head of Reference and User Education at the Library of the Health Sciences and JJ Horning MLIS, Information Specialist with the Health Workforce Information Center, who received  MBL/NLM Course Fellowships, attended the 2011 Biomedical Informatics course sponsored by the National Institute of Health and the National Library of Medicine. The week-long survey course introduced the conceptual and technical components of medical informatics. The two will be showcasing the knowledge they gained during four, one-half hour brown bag seminars Feb. 22, 29, March 7 and 14 at 12:15 p.m. in Reed Keller Auditorium.

    Topics to be covered during next three sessions follow:

    Learning objectives Semantic Medline on February 29th are to:
    *Define biomedical informatics
    *Identify biomedical terminologies
    *Apply tools learned for research needs

    Learning objectives for Clinical Informatics on March 7th are to:
    *Define biomedical informatics
    *Define Clinical Research Informatics
    *Explain importance of Trials research
    *Analyze various Trials registers

    Learning objectives for the forth and final session on March 14th, Ethics and Biomedical Informatics are to:
    *Define biomedical informatics
    *Identify current research issues
    *Recognize newly identified research areas.
