LI Course
Partnership: This Learning Institute represents an ongoing partnership between the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
Statement of Purpose and Institute Overview: The purpose of this course is to demonstrate the various ways public health practitioners, clinicians, researchers, and policymakers can apply Healthy People 2020 data, evidence-based resources, infographics, and community stories to strengthen their own disease prevention and health promotion efforts. Healthy People has served as the model for disease prevention and health promotion plans for almost all states and territories across the U.S. and more than a dozen other countries. This Learning Institute will use interactive exercises and case-studies to increase participants’ skills in effectively using newly launched HealthyPeople.gov tools. Here’s a sample case study: you are tasked with developing a health plan focused on oral health. You first need to identify the public health problem. You can search HealthyPeople.gov to find a variety of oral health objectives, including the proportion of persons age 2 years and older who used the oral health care system in the past 12 months. Using DATA2020, you can find pre-tabulated, nationally representative data on educational attainment, race and ethnicity, and other demographic characteristics for oral health objectives. Once you have outlined the public health problem and used data to support your need, your next step would be developing a plan to improve oral health in your community. The HealthyPeople.gov Evidence-Based Resources tool allows you to create customizable searches to find relevant evidence-based resources and recommendations that can be used in community health improvement planning. You can also see what other communities are doing around oral health by searching the Healthy People 2020 Sharing Library. This Learning Institute will use several case studies to demonstrate how each HealthyPeople.gov interactive tool can support participants’ public health work. The HealthyPeople.gov interactive tools help our stakeholders to: 1) Find evidence-based resources and interventions to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives, 2) Explore and examine demographic data that are helpful in program planning, implementation, and evaluation, 3) Bring data to life with infographics and case studies, and 4) Collaborate and share with peers and learn what work others around the country are doing. Presenters will demonstrate how different stakeholder groups can use each of the online tools on HealthyPeople.gov to strengthen grant proposals, develop and evaluate health improvement plans, and improve public health planning and evaluation. There will be formal and informal sharing of content, skill building and demonstrations, and sufficient time to address questions. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer to most effectively participate in these demonstrations.
Session Objectives: Describe 2 ways to use HealthyPeople.gov online tools to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives. Demonstrate ability to find data related to specific data sources, Leading Health Indicators, Healthy People topic areas, and specific objectives using DATA2020. Identify specific evidenced-based resources for achieving health improvement and making progress toward the Healthy People 2020 targets.
