Web-based Tutorials for Public Health Information
The National Library of Medicine, in collaboration with the University of Michigan Public Health Library & Informatics Division and Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce, has announced the release of the Public Health Information and Data Tutorial. This online tutorial, at http://phpartners.org/tutorial/, is a new tool designed to help the public health workforce effectively locate and use health information.
The Public Health Information and Data Tutorial helps public health workers use and manage the wealth of information available from myriad sources. The tutorial is made up of four modules: Staying Informed, Health Education Resources, Health Statistics, and Evidence Based Public Health.
The web-based format enables busy public health workers and others with an interest in these subjects to work through the material at their own pace, when and where it’s most convenient. The tutorial complements other resources on the Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce web site at http://phpartners.org.
Hands-on workshops or demonstrations covering these topics are also available. Contact Linda Milgrom (firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-221-3400).
