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.

Partnering to Catalyze Comprehensive Community Wellness. Year Developed: 2018. Source: Public Health Institute. Presenter(s): John Weisman, DrPH, MPH; Georgia Heise, BS, MS, DrPH; Bellinda K. Schoof, MHA, CPHQ. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Introductory. Length: 50 minutes.

Annotation: There is mounting recognition among health professionals that truly improving health outcomes in the U.S.—addressing acute conditions and the upstream social determinants that contribute to poor health—must be an interdisciplinary, cross-sector, and collaborative endeavor. To this end, the Public Health Leadership Forum (PHLF) at RESOLVE teamed with the Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF) to develop a framework that supports enhanced collaboration between health care and public health entities. This framework, Partnering to Catalyze Comprehensive Community Wellness: An Actionable Framework for Health Care and Public Health Collaboration, outlines essential elements and key strategies for shaping effective, health-based collaboratives among public health, health care, and community-based organizations. In this web forum, members of the PHLF and HCTTF describe the essential elements of collaboration outlined in the framework, and speak to their experiences working to develop and sustain cross-sector collaborations in their organizations and communities. A video and transcript are available.

Where To Find MCH Resources: An Introduction. Year Developed: 2017. Source: National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health. Presenter(s): Keisha Watson and John Richards. Type: Narrated Slide Presentation. Level: Introductory. Length: 18 minutes.

Annotation: This short presentation discusses the information needs of MCH professionals and identifies distinct online resources to address those needs, from pop and professional sources such as Google, PubMed, and Wikipedia to grant-supported resources that address MCHB topical programs and initiatives. Topics include data warehouses, research centers, epidemiology sites, professional and membership organizations

Learning Objectives: • Identify information needs of professionals • Explain the differences between types of online resources • Differentiate between trusted and questionable online resources • Understand where to go to find additional resources

Using Social Determinants of Health to Inform Fatality Review. Year Developed: 2017. Source: National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention. Presenter(s): Madelyn Reyes, MA, MPA, RN, Jola Crear-Perry, MD, FACOG, Susan Hurtado. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks. Child Death Review (CDR) and Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) programs work to understand health care systems and social problems that contribute to fetal, infant, and child deaths and to identify and implement systems improvement and interventions to improve the lives of some of our most vulnerable women, infants, children, and families. Keeping a Social Determinants of Health lens while conducting fatality review is a step toward reducing inequities in these vital health outcomes.

Using Administrative Data to Address Policy-Relevant Research Questions in Early Care and Education. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Child Trends. Presenter(s): Kelly Maxwell, Isabel Bradburn, Van-Kim Lin, Elizabeth Davis, and Amy Claessens. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 85 minutes.

Annotation: This webinar highlights 3 resources that can assist researchers in using early care and education administrative data. Additionally, it provides researchers' perspectives based on experience throughout their projects. The first resource examines the benefits of and strategies for developing collaborative partnerships with researchers and state agencies. The second resource was created to help researchers determine the feasibility of using administrative data by posing questions related to data policies and procedures, data contacts and coordination, and data usability. The third resource presents topics to consider when preparing to analyze administrative data to address child care and early education research questions.

Evidence Insight Video Series. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Mathematica Policy Research. Presenter(s): Ann Person, Phil Killewald, Alex Resch, Mariel Finucane, Lauren Vollmer. Type: Webinar Series. Level: Introductory Intermediate Advanced. Length: 5 videos, self paced.

Annotation: In a world where data are proliferating as never before, more policymakers are relying on research evidence to serve the public good. What are the research methods that offer the most useful data to policymakers in this rapidly changing landscape? Find out in #EvidenceInsight, a new video series from Mathematica Policy Research. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are considered the gold standard of rigorous research design. For decades, Mathematica researchers have designed, executed, and replicated large-scale RCTs in many different policy and program areas. Today, greater availability of high quality administrative data—along with an abundance of emerging technologies—have increased demand for faster program evaluation with equally robust results. This demand, coupled with shrinking resources, has motivated researchers to consider new methods that are more efficient and less expensive than RCTs, but just as reliable. This video series is designed to help policymakers who need access to strong evidence. After a brief video describing the series, additional videos address these topics: Bayesian Methods: A Faster, Probabilistic Approach to Research Design. Adaptive Randomization: A Fresh Perspective on Traditional Research Design. Rapid-Cycle Evaluation: Determining What Works in Less Time. Predictive Analytics: Transforming Decision Making in Three Steps.

Evaluation Learning Bundle. Year Developed: 2017. Source: MCH Navigator. Presenter(s): Keisha Watson, PhD; John Richards, MA, AITP. Type: Interactive Learning Tool. Level: Introductory Intermediate. Length: Self-paced.
