This video is intended to train the public health workforce by providing information on: 1. Fundamentals of data and data quality. 2. Basic concepts of EBDM in public health, its relationship with data quality, and some trusted sources of public health evidence.
The United States and European countries are often compared as the highest-ranking regions in socio-economic conditions, political structures, healthcare systems, and economic resilience. Both are high resource regions that are world renown for medical innovation. However, the U.S. consistently ranks low in health equity compared to other high resource countries, many of which are in Europe. This training discusses best practices that public health workers could adopt stateside from European public health initiatives.
The manual is designed to fill the gap by providing a course that can be used to train the region’s entry-level or nonsupervisory workforce on different areas of data for decision making, namely, identifying appropriate sources of data and information, collecting valid data, interpreting and using data to address public health issues. The manual has different modules that are intended to be used for each area; while modules can also be omitted or combined for use as needed.
Cultural awareness is a component of culturally competent care therefore this training has been developed in response to the growing diversity in the US population, and the unmet need for contraception among minority women. Additionally, a training gap for cultural competency has been identified in the public health tier 3 workforce of Region IV, according to the Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS) findings. The training focuses on integrating and transforming knowledge into behavior and attitude change, by adopting policy, standards, and best practices. The framework for this resource is based on Transformative Learning Theory; a theory that supports adult learners.
