From the Disaster Information Management Resource Center (DIMRC)
Disaster health information courses and supporting materials are now available from the Disaster Information Management Research Center at the National Library of Medicine. The courses are open to anyone at no cost and are approved for Medical Library Association (MLA) continuing education credit. Course materials may be used and adapted by anyone giving presentations or classes on this content. When using or adapting materials, please give credit to the original course authors and NLM.
We’d like to hear about your use of these course materials and what DIMRC can offer (improve) that would make it easier for you to teach this material. Are you interested in being an online or classroom instructor for one or more of these courses? We are compiling a list of current and potential instructors for future mailings: please send your name, title, organization, city, state/country to Katie Chan, email@example.com.
Completion of a series of courses may be used toward the MLA Disaster Information Specialization certificate. For information on requirements for the MLA certificate, see Disaster Information Specialist web site and scroll down to the section on “Completing Application.” The application fee is $55 for MLA members and $75 for non-members.
Happy New Year from the DIMRC staff. /ch
