Title: Ophthalmology Patient Education Resources on a Shoestring: Providing Services with Limited Staff, Time, and Budget
Objective: In April 2010, the eye center at the university completed an extensive building expansion program. All of the patient clinics moved into the new tower and the expanded facilities offered new opportunities for patient services. The library was given space to set up patient education resource rooms in four of the clinics and to select and provide materials for four additional clinics. This poster will cover the planning, resources, promotion, and challenges faced in developing this new service.
Methods: Patient education resource rooms and web pages were developed for the retina, glaucoma, cornea/ refractive surgery, and comprehensive clinics in the eye center. In addition, materials were selected for the neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastics, low vision, and pediatric clinics. A consumer health service dealing solely with eye disease is unique. The focus of this narrative will be on the challenges faced in operating unstaffed resource rooms with limited time and budget, and on the resources developed.
Conclusions: Lessons learned of interest to other librarians will be discussed.
