Contact: 801 585 5743 - https://nnlm.gov/classes/big-data-healthcare-exploring-emerging-roles - 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.

Contact: 919-357-0593 - https://sites.google.com/site/ebmcecourses/ - Mid-Atlantic region
This course is designed to give learners an introduction to evidence based practice through an understanding of basic study designs and validity issues related to reducing bias in randomized controlled trials.

After completing this course, learners will be better able to: identify appropriate study designs; identify validity criteria for a RCT; and help support evidence-based medicine within their own institutions. Teaching methods will include discussion, case studies, group exercises, and practice in appraising articles.

Evidence shows that there are marked health disparities between those living in rural areas versus their urban counterparts. Not only do rural residents suffer from higher incidence of chronic illness, they also have limited access to primary care services and are more likely to be uninsured or under-insured. This session will describe hallmarks of rural America, identify other access challenges of living in rural communities, and equip participants with tools to ue in service the health information needs of those living in rural communities.
