New, Easy-to-Use U.S. Women’s Health Data Map

The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) recently released a new interactive map that allows you to access information on women’s health by state. For each of four categories — demographics, coverage and access, sexual health and pregnancy — you can hover over any state and see quick facts. Clicking on a state reveals a dashboard of charts with state-specific data on women’s health, including insurance and Medicaid coverage, poverty, mental health, HIV, cancer, pregnancy, abortions and use of preventive services. Many indicators provide health care information for women of different racial and ethnic groups. The profiles draw from multiple sources, including the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Einstein-Montefiore IDs and the Library

You may have recently received a new Einstein-Montefiore ID. The 5-digit number on the back of the card that begins with *1 is your UserID for library services, such as off-campus access to e-resources and interlibrary loan (ILLiad). The * is not part of your UserID. Just use the 5-digit number when logging in. Your password remains the same. You can also check out books, laptops and iPads with your new card.


NLM Releases New Research Resource for Domestic Violence

The National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) has released a new health services research resource, Domestic Violence. It is intended to support health services researchers, policymakers, administrators, and practitioners involved in detection, prevention and treatment services for this underserved and often unnoticed community. The scope of this resource includes Intimate Partner Violence, Reproductive and Sexual Coercion, Child Abuse and Maltreatment, and Elder Abuse.

The Domestic Violence resource will assist researchers, both novice and advanced, by providing detailed search queries for key NLM databases: PubMed, PubMed Health, HSRProj (Health Services Research Projects in Progress), and HSRR (Health Services and Sciences Research Resources). These searches will enable users to readily discover relevant published medical literature, clinical effectiveness research, ongoing HSR projects, and related datasets, instruments and other tools. In addition, the resource identifies important guidelines, assessment instruments and measures, and includes a structured query for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s National Guidelines Clearinghouse.
