Mobilizing Knowledge Resources – PAH Library’s iPads Now Available for Hospital Staff Use

IpadThe PAH Library is pleased to announce a new lending program: iPads may be borrowed by hospital staff for use in relation to patient care. This leading-edge mobile technology allows knowledge and information resources to be accessed in any area of the hospital, even at the bedside. Pilot testing has revealed that the use of iPads can help reduce clinical uncertainty for clinicians, and can contribute to patient education, for example by allowing patients to see educational videos. See the usage policy and agreement on the Library intranet page, or stop by the Library on 3 Pine to speak with library staff about this exciting new program.
