Initiative to provide regional on-site training on the awareness and use of National Library of Medicine (NLM) health information resources to targeted providers (both affiliated and not affiliated with Dartmouth) and their interprofessional teams who work in community-based practices in rural and medically underserved areas in New Hampshire and in adjacent/neighboring areas in Vermont. The Biomedical Libraries will collaborate with OCER, who currently provide faculty development for over 600 community-based faculty, to build on their existing efforts and expand these offerings to non-affiliated providers and their teams, add innovative content and technology, and provide additional methods and continuous learning opportunities. This will be accomplished by conducting a needs assessment of targeted community-based providers and their teams to identify proficiency, usage, and skills with accessing and using health information; expand existing training materials specific to NLM resources, including use of innovative technologies; provide three regional on-site training sessions; and build a community of learners for ongoing dialogs/discussions around the use of health information in their practices.
