Social Determinants of Maternal and Child Health: Data, Policy Implications and Opportunities. Year Developed: 2010. Source: U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Paula Braverman, MD, MPH; Wilhelmine Miller, MS, PhD. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Introductory. Length: 60 minutes. Transcript

Annotation: Social determinants of health are factors such as income, education, occupation, employment, housing, child care, family structure, and neighborhood characteristics, which are thought to have powerful effects on health and yet are beyond the reach of medical care. This program features two experts in the field who will discuss current data on the topic, as well as opportunities for addressing disparities in maternal and child health. The first presenter will be Dr. Dr. Paula Braveman, Professor of Family and Community Medicine and Director of the Center on Social Disparities in Health at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Braveman will provide a broad overview of current knowledge of the social determinants of maternal and child health and a conceptual framework for thinking about and addressing them. The second presenter will be Dr. Wilhelmine Miller, Senior Fellow with NORC at the University of Chicago and a Professorial Lecturer in Health Policy, George Washington University. Dr. Miller will review effective, non-clinical interventions for reducing the risks to healthy child development consequent to social and economic disadvantage and consider the adequacy of current levels of social investments in the well-being of low-income families with infants and young children. Current federal policies and funding for services to promote healthy early development will be discussed.

Basic Epidemiology. Year Developed: 2010. Source: Upper Midwest Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center. Presenter(s): Iowa Department of Public Health. Type: Online Course. Level: Introductory. Length: 120 minutes.

Annotation: This interactive course introduces the field of epidemiology and its practice in the field of public health. The first module presents definitions of important terms, including determinants, transmission, case, communicability, prevalence, and incidence. Next, the course describes two models of the infectious disease process: (1) chain of infections and (2) the Epi Triangle (agent, host and environment). The third module describes the practice of epidemiology, with particular focus on outbreak investigation. Finally, the course concludes with an overview of surveillance, defining different types and components of successful systems. Examples, short quizzes and a post-test are used to reinforce learning.

Learning Objectives: • Discuss important terms and concepts for basic epidemiology practice. • Describe the inter-related aspects of the infectious disease process and methods of breaking this "chain" of infection. • Understand basic epidemiology in practice, using a case study of a food-borne outbreak as an example. • Perform basic surveillance tasks in an appropriate and timely manner. Utilize your regional epidemiologist as a resource for outbreak investigations.

America's Health Care Safety Net. Year Developed: 2008. Source: Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation . Presenter(s): Andrew Bindman, MD. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: 15 minutes. List of all archived webinars as of 09/13, when website was closed.

Annotation: This tutorial provides an overview of the barriers to health care services for those that are most likely to be uninsured; these populations disproportionately rely on health care safety organizations for their care. Dr. Bindman begins his presentation by describing community factors affecting the need for safety net services and the characteristics of these safety net providers. He continues by explaining the federal and state laws and funding required, as well as the consequences of inadequate funding for vulnerable populations. The presentation concludes by offering various strategies for improving the efficiency of safety net care and its applicability during potential health care reform.

Special Instructions: website was closed in September 2013. Tutorials are no longer updated but due to demand by professors who are still using the tutorials in class assignments, the Kaiser Family Foundation has made them available for download on archive site.
