Demystifying Data: Accessing, Interpreting, and Using Health Data
Developing and implementing effective programs and policies begins with systematic data use. This online course focuses on the relationship between data and program or policy initiatives. The primary goal is to highlight an evidence-based approach to decision making. Participants learn about common sources of data for public health problems and evaluate the usefulness of the sources. Participants use data to develop a brief problem statement, describe it quantitatively, and develop program or policy options.
The course is intended for public health professionals who lack sufficient training in data use for their daily work.
6 weeks online mentoring.
