Health sciences resources made more accessible

A number of freely available resources have been cataloged recently, so that they can be more easily accessed by researchers. These databases may now be found in Search Tools:

Culture, Language, and Health Literacy, from the Dpt. of Health and Human Services, provides training resources and assessment tools for cultural and
linguistic competency for health care delivery.

Vaccines, Blood & Biologics is an FDA site that provides information about licensed vaccines and their safety and availability.

Here are several statistical resources that have also been added to Search Tools:

Centers for Disease Control Data & Statistics

National Center for Health Statistics

Department of Health and Human Services Data Sources

Association of American Medical Colleges: Data and Analysis, which provides survey data and statistics about medical students and residents.

Two other resources have been linked in the MIRLYN catalog:

American Heart Association, Heart Disease and Stroke Statistical
highlights, which provides selected tables from the annual Heart Disease and Stroke Statistical Update and links to the latest update published in Circulation.

Public health preparedness and response to chemical and radiological incidents [electronic resource], an analysis by the RAND Corporation
