RefWorks is a web-based citation manager that can save you time and ease your workload. In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to organize references, build bibliographies and insert citations in your papers as you write. RefWorks is free to all UMB faculty, students and staff.
Are you aware of your patients' ability to understand and act on the information you give them? There is evidence that health care providers overestimate what patients are able to understand. Low health literacy is associated with higher mortality, higher rates of hospitalization and readmission, and poor self-management skills for chronic disease. This workshop covers the basics of health literacy, provides a hands-on opportunity to put difficult medical jargon into plain language, and introduces tools that will assist you in creating easy-to-read materials.
Are you seeking promotion or tenure? Applying for grant funding? In this workshop, you will learn to use tools like Web of Science and Scopus to measure and evaluate the impact of your research to present to funding agencies and promotion and tenure committees. Topics discussed include journal impact factor, h-index, alternative metrics, and methods for maximizing the impact of your research.
Want to improve your communication with patients whose native language is not English? In this workshop you will learn about patient education resources, including medical information available in other languages. This workshop will also examine the effect utilizing these resources can have on patient compliance and improved health.
