The use of Wikipedia by doctors for their information needs[edit]

This is a proposal for a research project to study the relationship between Wikipedia and the information needs of doctors. The community's knowledge and feedback is more than appreciated! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Richardpullicino (talk) 19:43, 30 March 2014

Wikimania 2016 in Italy[edit]

Am working to develop a program here Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:53, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

Who is attending?[edit]

Med topics you want to hear about?[edit]

  • I am currently running this pilot project under an IEG grant. I am very interested in attending the Wiki project Med sessions in Milan and interacting with the Wikimedia medical community: the next step for Wikitherapy could be promoting the concept to hospitals (i.e. not only mental health institutions) and getting doctors and/or patients involved. I have connections in Greece that would be willing to embrace the idea. If you would like me to make a brief presentation I would be happy to do so! See also the poster I have submitted here. Thanks, looking forward to seeing you at Wikimania 2016!--Saintfevrier (talk) 11:36, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Please comment on my Individual Engagement Grant talk page about my proposal for Guided Checklist for Health Topic Experts[edit]

Hello everyone,

I created a new Individual Engagement grant to try and fix a problem. Grants:IdeaLab/Effective Engagement with Health Topic Experts using Guided Checklists

From my work with Cochrane as a Wikipedian in Residence and my observations of other attempts to engage health topic experts in editing, I've come to the conclusion that the quality of the contributions of health topic experts does not match their level of expertise and effort the we as Wikipedians put into training new medical editors. So, I decided to create a new project to develop a Guided Checklist that would assist a health topic expert in assessing the quality of a health articles on Wikipedia, and then guide their contributions toward making edits to correct the lack of quality.

My individual engagement grant would involve interviewing health topic experts and active medical editors, as well as a community consultation on Wikipedia English WikiProject Med. Please add yourself as a volunteer if you would like to participate. Or leave suggestions on the talk page. Or endorse if you support the idea. Sydney Poore/FloNight (talk) 00:00, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Please add the translate tag in first section[edit]

Hi, I am translating to japanese language. In Wiki Project Med#Mission, First sentence (T:5 and T:6) only tagged, this part only can translating. There is no problem in the other sections.

I think maybe translate tag is nothing in the other part. So I read the following:mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation example#Step 4: Making changes. If manually I must be careful. But, I do not know well.

Please add the translate tag in the first section. --タバコはマーダー (talk) 05:10, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
