DESCRIPTION The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to solve public health problems and as a decision making tool in healthcare has increased. Because of this trend, it is important for public health information professionals to have a basic understanding of GIS and mapping. This webinar will provide an overview of GIS, types of geospatial data, and the basics of visualizing health information. OBJECTIVES By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 1. Describe the major components of GIS. 2. Describe geographic coordinate systems and their role in map projections. 3. Categorize the major types of data used in GIS and mapping. 4. List the major U.S. geospatial data collection systems. 5. Describe the major uses of GIS in public health. 6. Illustrate how color, shape, and scale influence the design of maps and geospatial data visualizations.

Debrief and Discuss BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science

Contact: John Bramble and Shirley Zhao and Nathalie Reid
Contact: 8015855743 - - Midcontinental region
Health Sciences Library support for data researchers and computer scientists is a new role for librarians. Working being done in biomedical big data fields and precision medicine is The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative presents a weekly online lecture series on the data science underlying modern biomedical research. The series began in September 2016 and is scheduled to run through early 2017. The weekly presentations are from experts across the country covering the basics of data management, representation, computation, statistical inference, data modeling, and other topics relevant to “big data” in biomedicine. The webinar series will provide essential training suitable for individuals at an introductory overview level. All video presentations from the seminar series will be streamed for live viewing, recorded, and posted online for future viewing and reference. This webinar series is a collaboration between the TCC, the NIH Office of the Associate Director for Data Science, and BD2K Centers Coordination Center (BD2KCCC). To shape these sessions, we will attempt to address these questions: 1. In the context of health information access (organization of information, research, findability, etc.) what role can the librarian play to support researchers in their data lifecycle at your institution? 2. What assets do librarians have to bring to the table? 3. What skills do librarians need? 4. What Resources are needed? 5. Who are the most important stakeholders librarians need to align with to get a seat at the table?

Big Data in Healthcare: Exploring Emerging Roles

Contact: John Bramble and Tony Nguyen, Elaina Vitale, and Nathalie Reid
Contact: 801 585 5743 - - Midcontinental region
The Big Data in Healthcare: Exploring Emerging Roles course will help health sciences librarians better understand the issues of big data in clinical outcomes and what roles health sciences librarians can take on in this service area. This course is taught in Moodle and is a semi-self-paced course (“semi" meaning there will be completion deadlines). Course content comes from information shared by the presenters at the March 7th Using Data to Improve Clinical Patient Outcomes forum, top picks from the NN/LM MCR Data Curation/Management Journal Club and NN/LM PSR Data Curation/Management Journal Club’s articles, and taking the course Big Data Fundamentals from the Big Data University. Students who successfully complete the course will: - Have a better understanding of the role that big data plays in clinical patient outcomes. - Have a better understanding of the fundamentals of big data from a systems perspective. - Articulate their views/options on the role health sciences sector librarians is in supporting big data initiatives (student will be encouraged to allow their views to be published on one of the NN/LM MCR and PNR's publications as part of a dialog with the wider health sciences librarian community engaging in this topic). Students who sign up for this course agree to: - Commit to spend the full 9 contact hours learning about and articulating their views on the course topic (this includes the 1.5 contact hours from the Big Data University’s course). - Complete the course requirements by the deadline establish in each course offering. - Provide course feedback (strengths/weaknesses) on the MLA Online Course Evaluation form. This course is taught by instructors from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. Please contact your region's education coordinator for more information.
