Book by School of Social Work Faculty Member Added to NML

Health Technology Literacy:  A Transdisciplinary Framework for Consumer-Oriented Practice (W 83.1 J82h 2011) by Maryalice Jordan-Marsh, PhD, RN, FAAN, Associate Professor in the USC School of Social Work was recently published and added to Norris Library’s book collection.

Dr. Jordan-Marsh’s new book examines the wide range of resources used by health consumers to inform and support their decisions around their own health care. Using evidence-based practice and relevant theories, “[t]his book gives readers an overview of the new developments in health care and covers the interactive resources that make health ‘participatory.’ Links to websites, moral issues, and skills are all covered. Most chapters have an ‘everyday experience’ table so readers can quickly hone in on important and applicable information.  In general, the book provides tables for quick reference that are supported by text to provide readers with a ‘big picture’ look at heath technology.”1
