Nation’s premier public health agency— working to ensure healthy people in a healthy world. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
All who work to protect and improve the public’s health Behavioral scientists Educators Epidemiologists Laboratorians Nurses Pharmacists Physicians Veterinarians Public Health Community
Abundance of Training Sources Uncoordinated collections of training within CDC and throughout the public health community State & Local health departments Hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices Academia Federal Agencies (HRSA, AHRQ, etc) Non-profit organizations and foundations
Part One of the Solution: CDC Learning Connection 2010 - we created the CDC Learning Connection Coordinate the delivery of CDC’s training for learners throughout the public health community 2011 – Added an LMS, CDC TRAIN, a dynamic public health learning management system Today – the Learning Connection is a one-stop learning resource that provides free access to products developed for the public health community www.cdc.gov/learning
CDC Learning Connection CDC TRAIN Home page April Update for CDC LC Website
Part Two of the Solution: Public Health Learning Data Store GOAL Develop a central data store where learning management systems (LMSs) seamlessly share thousands of public health related training
Steps to Constantly Revisit Keep stakeholders engaged Revisit policies and security requirements as technology evolves Perfect how you communicate the concept
Sequential Steps Assess current resources and determine needs Create implementation plan with input from experts Conduct formative evaluation Test the concept through peer review Pilot test prototype Secure funding Initiate procurement process for required components
Benefits Make it easy to deliver training through a central data store connected to multiple LMSs Learners can locate training across multiple LMSs Developers can identify similar training content and reduce training redundancy Store e-learning files Track e-learning usage data
Challenges Funding Staying on top of Operation and Maintenance User Support Similar to LMS Abstract concept to convey
We must determine ways to amplify every dollar in public health. --Harvey Fineberg, PhD President of the Institute of Medicine December 2012
