Info-RN: a Newsletter for Nurses
Fall 2013

Meeting the Information Needs of Winnipeg's Nurses

From the Editor|

Influenza Virus Image courtesy of renjith krishnan / freedigitalphotos.netThis month is full of  infection prevention awareness. October 15 is Global Hand Washing Day, October 22 is HSC's 17th Annual Bug Day, October 21 - 25 is National Infection Control Week, and all of October is dedicated to Influenza Immunization Awareness (Get the Shot! Not the Flu!).  In this issue of Info-RN you will find online education resources, books, dvds, and journal articles, all on the topic of infection control practices. Find YouTube videos to make your infection control presentation/inservice more dynamic. (E.g. You'll Like Clean Hands" (with apologies to Dr. Seuss),  YouTube video where the University of Manitoba's Dr. John Embil reads a book about hand-cleaning featuring the character Soapy!)  Learn how you can now borrow iPads from the Neil John Maclean Library and how to keep your smart devices clean in the healthcare environment. Also, we highlight Clinical Key, an new online resource available from the Health Sciences Libraries, and provide you with information on how scholarly productivity or research impact is measured.
