Using Population Data to Complement Fatality Review Data: An Overview of CDC WONDER and Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR). Year Developed: 2018. Source: National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention. Presenter(s): Sigrid A. Economou; Carol Gilbert, MS. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Fatality review includes information often not available through routine quantitative methods. Population data, such as vital statistics, are frequently used to complement fatality review findings. This presentation includes a demonstration of the CDC WONDER, an integrated information and communication system for public health developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The webinar also introduces participants to Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR), a comprehensive approach to help communities use data to reduce infant mortality. The webinar defines population based data, its limitations, limitations of case review data, how to interpret data in light of other evidence, different uses of data, PPOR analytic steps, and how FIMR and PPOR can work together. Available are the archive, slides, questions and answers, a handout, and information about CDC WONDER.

Public Health Law: A Tool to Address Emerging Health Concerns. Year Developed: 2016. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Presenter(s): Montrece McNeill Ransom, JD, MPH, Matthew Penn, JD, MLIS, Karen DeSalvo, MD, MPH, MSc. Type: n.a.. Level: Introductory. Length: n.a..

Annotation: Law is a critical tool for protecting and promoting the health of the public. Some of history's greatest public health successes, such as childhood immunization and safer workplaces, would not have been possible without changes to laws and policies. But public health law also involves evaluating laws, even ones not traditionally seen as health related, and exploring their impact on individuals and communities. Such analyses provide evidence that policymakers can use to inform future lawmaking. Increased understanding of the influence of social determinants on health has brought about innovative policy approaches including Health in All Policies. Public health law is an integral part of these initiatives and seeks to contribute to the advancement and promotion of health for all. In this session of Public Health Grand Rounds, we celebrate the 15th anniversary of CDC's Public Health Law Program. Speakers will provide an overview of public health law, describe how it is an essential component of contemporary public health practice, and discuss the emergence of modern concepts of public health law, including legal epidemiology.

Improving Care Delivery for Children: Leveraging the Medicaid Benefit for Children and Adolescents. Year Developed: 2014. Source: National Academy for State Health Policy. Presenter(s): Eliot Fishman, Glenace Edwall, Colleen Sonosky, Jennifer Vermeer. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 84 minutes. powerpoint slides

Annotation: States around the country are actively working to improve service delivery under the Medicaid benefit for children and adolescents (also known as the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment benefit or EPSDT), Medicaid’s comprehensive and preventive child health program for individuals under the age of 21. The benefit provides tens of millions of children with access to a range of preventive, screening, and treatment services, as well as vision, dental, and hearing services. The benefit is critical to early identification of health conditions, as well as to maintaining and improving the health of low-income children, making it a key priority for states as they strive to improve population health. This webinar drew together Medicaid officials from three states for a conversation about how they have worked to improve the Medicaid benefit for children in their states. Speakers from Iowa, the District of Columbia, and Minnesota discussed strategies for improving access and service delivery for Medicaid-enrolled children. The conversation had a particular emphasis on efforts in these states to better coordinate care, use public health resources to deliver benefits, collect data on and improve quality, and enhance access and delivery of behavioral health services for children. This webinar was the first in a series on the Medicaid benefit for children and adolescents: future webinars will delve more deeply into oral health, adolescent health, and care coordination.

Learning Objectives: • Define the EPSDT benefit. • Explain the federal perspective on the Medicaid benefit for children and adolescents. • Discuss new resources. • Learn about what 3 states are doing with the EPSDT benefit (MN, DC, and IA).

Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) Applications for Public Health. Year Developed: 2013. Source: AcademyHealth. Presenter(s): Suzanne Bakken, RN, PhD, FAAN; Anirban Basu, PhD; Marisa Domino, PhD. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Introductory. Length: 90 minutes.

Annotation: Traditional comparative effectiveness research (CER) for healthcare has examined the effectiveness, benefits, and harms of different treatment options (AHRQ). This type of analysis is also essential to determining the success of public health interventions and the delivery of public health services. In this webinar, speakers will discuss proven and emerging methods for conducting CER, and propose approaches for utilizing those methods to address population-level inquiries. Dr. Anirban Basu will first present emerging methods used for CER, and suggest strategies for their application to public health. Dr. Marisa Domino will then describe her research, applying CER methods through Public Health Services and Systems Research (PHSSR). This webinar will be of interest to those investigating systems and population level health challenges, including health service researchers who would like to examine the delivery of health services in public settings. The workshop assumes basic familiarity with the goal of CER.

Learning Objectives: • Understand the current interest in CER among health services researchers and health policy professionals. • Describe traditional and innovative CER methodology. • Identify appropriate applications for CER in public health.
