Outreach Award 2005: Medical Resources Access Project for Rural Northern California Hospital
This project will include seven rural health care systems and their medical staffs located in northern California. The focus of this project is to train rural healthcare providers in the use of information resources currently available to them through the UC Davis Clinical Resource Center (CRC) website. Included will be an emphasis on health information literacy for their enhanced professional use, as well as resources available for increased patient and consumer health information. Approximately 600 medical personnel will be surveyed to gather information about desired new CRC resources. This information will be used to design in person and online training modules to facilitate the effective use of CRC.
