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.

Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health Life Course Perspective, Practice, and Leadership Training Series. Year Developed: 2019. Source: Center of Excellence in Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health; University of California, Berkley. Presenter(s): Michael Lu, MD, MS, MPH; Paula Braveman, MD, MPH; Kiko Malin, MSW/MPH; Anthony Iton, MD, JD, MPH; and Vijaya Hogan, MPH, DrPH. Moderated by Julianna Deardorff, PdD. Type: Online Course. Level: Introductory Intermediate Advanced. Length: 5 modules; self-paced. Registration link

Annotation: The Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Life Course Perspective, Practice, & Leadership course is designed to provide an understanding of life course perspective, its practical applications, and related leadership opportunities. The life course perspective is a conceptual framework for understanding health trajectories of populations over time. The life course perspective posits that broad social, economic, and environmental factors not only shape health and contribute to health outcomes but are also the underlying causes of inequities in a wide range of maternal and child health outcomes. This course first provides a brief summary of the development and central components of this perspective. Building off these foundational concepts, the course then focuses on practical applications of this perspective in both healthcare settings and public health interventions. Through interviews with leaders in the MCAH field, including clinicians, researchers, and public health practitioners, this course will highlight essential leadership knowledge and skills necessary to apply a life course perspective in practice. The course is self-directed, online, and open source, which allows participants to learn at their own speed and convenience free of charge. While the course is designed with clinical professionals and public health practitioners in mind, it is available to all learners including students and professionals in other fields.

Learning Objectives: Learning Objectives (comprehensive) By the end of the training series, participants will be able to: • Define and describe the life course perspective and its core concepts • Identify examples of how the life course perspective has been applied and implemented in practice settings across the MCAH field • Identify leadership knowledge and skills that support advancing a life course perspective in practice. • Apply life course perspective knowledge and leadership skills to individual professional development.

Special Instructions: Registration is required.

Asset Mapping: Starting System Change with What You Already Have. Year Developed: 2019. Source: National MCH Workforce Development Center. Presenter(s): Rebecca Wells. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: n.a..

Annotation: This video learning module walks through the full Asset Mapping process, whereby resources in the community or state/jurisdiction can be identified. Asset mapping builds on community strengths and often focuses on geographic location to ensure utility. This session looks at a nine-step process to engage partners in this work. Participants in the process cluster resources and reflect on patterns of assets and gaps. These results are used to inform action planning. Examples from technical assistance sessions with real state programs are provided.

Learning Objectives: • Be able to use Asset Mapping to find resources and gaps for an MCH focus. • Know where to get more information on Asset Mapping.

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. Slides

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.

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: Introductory. 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.
