EAHIL - an international adventure for the DIS

Barbara Sen, along with PhD student Liz Brewster and former MA student Martin Coates (in conjunction with Peter Bath), attended the European Association for Health Information and Libraries (EAHIL) conference in Dublin last week. Liz and Martin presented papers on consumer health information, looking at the role of librarians and the public library, while Barbara gave a workshop on reflection as a technique for improving partnership working.

The theme of the conference was 'explore, engage, extend!' and with a series of empowerment workshops and informative paper sessions, this gave the opportunity to think in a cross-sector, international way about partnership working, using technology and improving personal skills.

Liz wishes to thank the John Campbell Trust for providing her with a travel bursary to enable her to attend the conference.
