American Indian Health Information Resources
According to the 2010 US Census, approximately 5.2 million people stated that they were American Indian or Alaskan Native. A recent study shows that American Indian use of the Internet to find health information is lower in comparison with the adult U.S. population. This three-hour program will introduce a variety of governmental and non-governmental Internet resources that have health information for American Indian populations. Students attending will be able to practice their skills in finding health information using web resources in this hands-on program.
Students who complete this program will be able to:
- identify and describe the National Library of Medicine’s American Indian health databases;
- compare strengths and weaknesses of American Indian health websites;
- utilize websites to obtain health information resources for American Indian populations.
Upon successful completion of this class, each participant will receive 3 hours of continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association.
