Innovations in Federal Surveys to Assess the Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Children & Families. Year Developed: 2022. Source: Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Michael Kogan, Reem Ghandour, Jessica Jones, Anika Schenck-Fontaine, & Olivia Sappenfield. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 74. minutes.

Annotation: Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruptions in the lives of U.S. children and their families, including their health, health care access, receipt of intervention and other services, education, and child care arrangements. Accordingly, HRSA MCHB has taken steps to ensure that public health programs are prepared to meet these challenges and that researchers have access to relevant data. This symposium provides participants with an overview of resources for both immediate and long-term analytic needs. Specifically, this session presents three projects to collect data on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and their families: The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), a new longitudinal cohort study of past NSCH respondents to launch in 2023, and the results of MCHB-sponsored content included in the Census Bureau’s weekly Household Pulse Survey.

Learning Objectives: • Discuss overviews of three projects to collect data on the impacts of COVID-19 on children and families. • Learn survey content and how to access survey data. • Review relevant timelines of data availability.

Tools for Data-Powered Discovery: NLM's Data Discovery and Pillbox. Year Developed: 2019. Source: National Library of Medicine. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: n.a..

Annotation: As the National Library of Medicine transitions to become a platform for biomedical discovery and data-powered health, one area of focus is building a workforce for data-driven research and health. In support of this strategic goal, NLM launched Data Discovery, an online platform for making data findable, interoperable, accessible, and reusable (the FAIR principles). In addition to browser-based exploration, filtering, and visualization of data, Data Discovery includes Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to help researchers and developers build applications that leverage its datasets. Pillbox, NLM’s pill identification and reference resource, long overdue for redesign, was rebuilt using Data Discovery as its foundation to showcase the power of this platform. This session: 1) provides a brief history of these efforts as they relate to NLM’s 2017-2027 Strategic Plan, 2) demonstrates how to explore, filter, and create visualizations using NLM datasets hosted on Data Discovery, and 3) demonstrates the redesigned Pillbox website and illustrate how hosting its data on Data Discovery empowers users without disrupting the traditional web application experience.

Learning Objectives: • Recognize featured NLM resource. • Know how to locate the specific resource featured. • Explain to others when to use the featured resource.

Sources and Utilization of Secondary Data for MCH Research. Year Developed: 2019. Source: Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Division of Research. Presenter(s): Alek Sripipatana, PhD, MPH; Russell Kirby, PhD, MS, FACE. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Emerging public health challenges require timely, multidimensional and evidence-based resources from Maternal and Child Health (MCH) programs, policy, and practice. Without sufficient data, it is difficult to address key and emerging MCH issues. The HRSA/MCHG R40 MCH Secondary Data Analysis Research Program (MCH SDAR) funds studies using existing publicly available, national datasets to examine new research questions and test new hypotheses with the potention for intervention.

Learning Objectives: • Identify data sources for MCH and health services research. • Explore the strengths and weaknesses of utilizing secondary datasets in MCH research. • Learn how to access and utilize HRSA's Uniform Data System (UDS) and other surveillance data for MCH research.

Making Sense of Numbers: Understanding Risks and Benefits. Learning How to Communicate Health Statistics. Year Developed: 2019. Source: National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Pacific Northwest Region. Presenter(s): Nancy Shin. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 90 minutes.

Annotation: Numeracy literacy is not only a problem for individuals receiving health information but also for those providing information that contain numbers. This class is a basic introduction for anyone who wants to understand how to communicate health information that involves numeracy. The purpose of this class is to understand risk and benefits from a layman’s perspective and to understand that the communication of numbers must be clear and easy to understand. In this 1.5 hour class, participants will also be introduced to several NLM and NIH tools that will help in the development of educational materials. Audience is anyone providing health information to the general public, including healthcare instructors, public and medical librarians, patient educators.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to: • Understand their role in risk communication and health numeracy. • Understand risk and benefit statistics from a layman’s perspective. • Understand that the communication of numbers must be clear and easy to understand. • Understand that numeracy is a key component of health literacy and shared decision making in managing one’s health.

Continuing Education: This class is eligible for Consumer Health Information Specialization continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association.

How to Make Sense of Your Agency’s Data: Move from Data Collection to Analytics . Year Developed: 2018. Source: GovLoop. Presenter(s): Jack London. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: 10 minutes.

Annotation: With a growing population, an increase in connected devices and the rapid pace of technological development, agencies are now collecting more data than ever before. Not to mention, the sprawl of government information systems and technologies means that agencies are also generating significant amounts of information. All that data can be extremely valuable to the way government achieves mission goals. But to reap that value, agencies must be able to do more than collect it; they must be able to analyze it. In this course, we examine the barriers that many agencies face in bridging the gap between collection and analytics. We also identify the three critical tasks that agencies must achieve to glean insights from their data. Finally, we examine how data analytics can have real impact on the operations of government agencies. The course comprises an overview, 3 lessons, a knowledge check, and a post-course survey.

Learning Objectives:

Continuing Education: GovLoop is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
