As always, Siobhan Champ Blackwell has great information to share regarding health information literacy. She recently posted the following on The Health and Literacy Discussion List. She shared how she has adopted this strategy to receive weekly updates on health literacy. Thank you, Siobhan, for the great tip!
“The National Library of Medicine has developed a “preformulated” search of PubMed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ in health literacy http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/queries/health_literacy.html I set up a “My NCBI account”, saved the search and have an email sent to me every Monday morning with the latest listing of articles published that week.
Setting up a MyNCBI account is easy – on the home page for PubMed, in the upper right hand corner, select, “Sign In”, in the lower left hand box, you will see a link to “Register for a new account” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/myncbi/register/
Then run the preformulated search and save it to you newly created My NCBI account and every week, you too can receive the latest research in health literacy.”
