Building a Healthier Las Vegas through Participatory-Based Creation of Community Health Workforce Training

This project will bring together community health program stakeholders across the Las Vegas Valley in order to discover educational needs and design appropriate online interventions prioritizing National Library of Medicine (NLM) and National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) materials for health workers in the field. The focus of stakeholder meetings will include identifying areas for education across health literacy and consumer health information and aims to prioritize delivery and incentives to increase likelihood of participation by frontline health workers. After educational needs and appropriate NLM and other materials are identified, a pilot promotional period focusing on marketing topical learning guides based on previously identified needs will be implemented. Key measures of success will include the numbers of health workers who participate in training through head counts and continuing education credits received, requests for additional training, the use of any resources created or recommended to participants, and feedback on current or future implementation of participantsā€™ new knowledge and resources.
