Online Access to Health Affairs

Online Access to Health Affairs

Health Affairs has long been a favorite journal for health care policy makers.
As of Jan 2014, Library Services is offering online access to Health Affairs.  As long as you are using an Affinity or Ministry computer (or remote access), you should be able to get to full-text articles in Health Affairs.

From their website : “Health Affairs is the leading journal of health policy thought and research. The peer-reviewed journal was founded in 1981 under the aegis of Project HOPE, a nonprofit international health education organization. Health Affairs explores health policy issues of current concern in domestic and international spheres. Its mission is to serve as a high-level, nonpartisan forum to promote analysis and discussion on improving health and health care, and to address such issues as cost, quality, and access.”

To sign up for Health Affairs eTOCs / Alerts , contact Deb Knippel.

FREE to a Good Home : Old AudioDigest CDs

The MMC  Library has 1 year's worth of 2010  AudioDigest CDs  available for FREE. 
Although these audioCDs are too old to apply for CE credits, they do still offer  excellent  information for Physicians, PAs, Nurses, and other health professionals.

 Available Subject areas include the following  :
Emergency Medicine 
Family Practice 
General Surgery 
Internal Medicine
Obstetrics / Gynecology
Also available on Audio :
Journal Watch 
Practical Reviews in Radiology
 Look for them on the  used  book sale table.     Come early.  These are HOT items!   
Too far from Mercy?  No sweat!   I'm  willing to inter-office a selection of  5-10  audio CDs anywhere within Affinity.     Just tell me which series you're interested in.  
Please Note : Due to challenges with inter-office mail delivery between Ministry and Eastern regions, this offer is only for Affinity / East Region.  
Why are we giving them away?
--limited shelving space for audiovisuals
--CE credits are available only for 3 years since date of publication
--Our libraries emphasize the most up-to-date info, so we want to make room for more recent issues.
