Featured Subject Guide: Bioethics

Thursday, December 4th, 2014
The Bioethics Subject Guide was created at the request of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities faculty to provide research guidance for students from all Upstate Colleges enrolled in courses provided by the CBH http://www.upstate.edu/bioethics/ and Consortium for Culture and Medicine http://www.upstate.edu/ccm/.  Consortium students come no only from Upstate, but also LeMoyne College and Syracuse University.  The students from other institutions benefit from our Guide as it highlights Upstate Health Sciences Library bioethics resources.
The Bioethics Guide can provide a starting point for bioethics researchers in the larger community as well.
The guide features faculty recommended Bioethics journals, Bioethics e-books, and print books, along with Legal Resources and a collection of Bioethics research portals compiled by the CBH.
Research in Bioethics often extends beyond traditional biomedical sources, including legal and general interest publications.  Please contact a Librarian at library@upstate.edu for research assistance.
For information on CBH credit courses as well as educational programs and seminars please see http://www.upstate.edu/bioethics/education/.

Medical Librarians as Article Co-Authors

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Excerpt:
“Medical librarians play a central role in assisting clinicians access medical literature needed to provide patient care. They also can play an important role in developing high-quality narrative and systematic reviews, constructing search strategies, managing references, reviewing references for inclusion, documenting the search methodology, and contributing to the drafting of the final manuscript. Having a medical librarian closely involved ensures that the review will be thorough and its methodology reproducible. Medical librarians bring expertise to the review process based on their understanding of the medical literature, search methods, and review guidelines and standards. Their neutrality and expertise can help minimize bias in the review process, leading to more robust and unbiased review articles.”

PsychiatryOnline.org features Professionalism in Psychiatry

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

PsychOnline Book of the Month: November
Professionalism in Psychiatry

November brings Professionalism in Psychiatry by Glen O. Gabbard, M.D., Laura Weiss Roberts, M.D., M.A., Holly Crisp-Han, M.D., Valdesha Ball, M.D., Gabrielle Hobday, M.D., and Funmilayo Rachal, M.D.

What’s often referred to as bedside manner in medicine is really a reflection of the doctor’s professionalism. This is especially true in psychiatry, where issues like countertransference can come into play. In Professionalism in Psychiatry, the authors seek to define the factors that influence professionalism and address principles that are now part of the core curriculum for medical students, psychiatry residents, educators, and practicing clinicians. The interface between ethics and professionalism is charted, including ethical issues related to research, fundraising, and the relationship between psychiatrists and pharmaceutical companies.

The authors also review how the principles of professionalism can be applied to gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. Professionalism in Psychiatry is a must read for any educator or professional wanting to better understand the relationship between professionalism, ethics, and the avoidance of boundary violations.

You can access the Book of the Month from the PsychiatryOnline.org homepage, scroll to the bottom of the page to find Book of the Month. From the Health Sciences Library website select Resources> Databases> and search PsyhchiatryOnline.

You’ll have access to the Professionalism in Psychiatry as a PDF download for the month of November.
