Abstract

This chapter will discuss:
-How being information literate in the workplace is to be ethical, not only in the correct use of information, but as a vital part of the fulfilment of obligations to the patient, customer or client. Not to be Information Literate may result in harmful outcomes.
-How this exhibits itself in Information Literacy’s role in the achievement of competence, and beyond this in the quest for 'Best Practice': the most effective and efficient way to achieve the best outcome for patients or clients, based on all relevant information effectively analysed and integrated into the knowledge base.
