(April 25, 2012 – At the National Council of Urban Indian Health 2012 Annual Meeting )
Session Facilitators: Crystal Tetrick, Associate Director, Urban Indian Health Institute and Jyl Marden, Executive Director of the California Consortium for Urban Indian Health
Overview: Evaluations from the Urban Indian Health Institute’s (UIHI) Demystifying Data for Health Professionals Trainings over the past year indicate that Urban Indian Health Organization (UIHO) staff would like more intensive data trainings from the UIHI. UIHO staff requested a greater focus on local data, in addition to more opportunities to work together to share data and experiences. As the designated epidemiology center for the UIHOs, the UIHI is responsible for conducting health surveillance of the urban Indian population, identifying health priorities based on data, in addition to working with the UIHO to assist them with community surveillance. This session will identify strategic areas to help improve UIHO access to and use of health data. With guided questions, this roundtable session will provide a forum for participants to engage in a discussion around data sets, data systems, data quality, and data use. (April 2012)Download»
