Access to Electronic Health Information: Verde Valley and Yavapai County Outreach
The Objectives of this project are to provide educational sessions, especially Train-the-Trainers at each of the partner sites. It is also the goal to provide information to the other target audiences regarding the services that are provided by the partner sites, especially VVMC medical library. The rationale for this project is to help direct the consumer to quality health information provided by quality sites such as MedlinePlus and PubMed. Currently, the public libraries will show the patron where the medical information is located but will not help them to research their particular needs. The Verde Valley Guidance Center and Catholic Social Services currently do not provide this service to their patrons. The First Steps program currently uses MedlinePlus for consumer health information. The expected results of this project will be to provide more sites where consumers can access the necessary health information.
