Public Health Tutorial Premieres

In May, the National Library of Medicine, in collaboration with the University of Michigan Public Health Library & Informatics Division, and Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce, released the Public Health Information and Data Tutorial, providing instruction for members of the public health workforce on issues related to information access and management.

The tutorial’s goal is to help public health professionals: stay informed of developments and events related to public health; find reliable and authoritative consumer-oriented materials to support health education; retrieve statistical information and access data sets relevant to public health; and retrieve and evaluate information in support of evidence-based practice.

Users may adapt or duplicate any content included in the tutorial and training manual for their purposes.
