Multi-year Consortial Award: Health Professions Outreach in Eastern Washington

The purpose of this project, as originally proposed, is to advance health literacy capacity and to improve clinical information discovery skills of health professionals in Eastern Washington. The targeted health professionals work in clinics, in long-term care facilities, and in schools in Eastern Washington. The end goals of the project are to: (1) enhance clinical decision-making and patient care for health professionals in private practice; (2) improve the quality of life of older Americans; (3) to help prepare K-12 students and children for the jobs in the future; (4) to increase National Library of Medicine, NNLM PNR, HEALWA and WSU Spokane visibility; (5) and to build capacity for sustaining these programs in rural and underserved areas.
