Informatics for the public health workforce
In order to make valid decisions about health care, it is necessary to find health information that is accurate, timely, and relevant to the individual's or community's needs. This tutorial focuses on bringing health information to targeted communities via specific educational media.
The resources mentioned in this tutorial include tools for networking with colleagues on similar issues, eliminating duplicative program development, discovering often hard-to-find but significant health promotion publications, and the rapid creating of teaching materials.
Local health sciences librarians may be able to provide additional information on the resources discussed in this tutorial as well as introduce you to additional sources of information. Public health educators may consider partnering with libraries when providing training for their communities.
