This 1.5 day course was offered and recorded March 28-29, 2013 to familiarize participants with common problems in public health guidelines development and best practices for avoiding them.

Slides and the recordings supported only the lecture portions. Hands-on portions of the training were not recorded.

The course was sponsored by the CDC Office of the Associate Director for Science, Office of Science Quality (OSQ), and taught by Dr. Richard Shiffman, MD, MCIS, Professor of Pediatrics and Associate Director of the Center for Medical Informatics at the Yale School of Medicine.

Training Facilitators: George Michel, MS, GEM Programmer and Jeremy Michel, MD, Informatics Fellow
