Librarian’s role in patient education: CAPHIS

MLA’s Consumer and Patient Health Information Section (CAPHIS) outlines what it takes to be a consumer health librarian (unfortunately only in English):

The Librarian’s Role In The Provision Of Consumer Health Information And Patient Education

While not officially a set of core competencies, the document does describe the special skill set required for this type of work.

Also check out the other useful information CAPHIS provides about managing a consumer health information service (from link above see Managing a CHIS on left menu).
