Health Libraries Australia PD Day, Melbourne, 18-19 July 2019

Health Libraries Australia (HLA) are holding their Professional Development Event for 2019 at Monash University, Caulfield Campus, Melbourne on Thursday and Friday the 18th and 19th July. We would like to acknowledge our hosts – Tomas Zahora and his team at Monash University, Caulfield. 'All about data - what do health librarians need to know in the data driven world of ehealth?'

eHealth and big data are driving massive change in the health sector. Librarians are continually challenged to be ‘data intelligent’ and to extend their skills in the use, visualisation and application of data and to support their clients’ data literacy. Librarian’s working in health science or inside health agencies and organisations are uniquely positioned to support the optimal use of data to support scientific research and the delivery of and improvements in health and medical care for individuals and the community.
