Are you looking to build your knowledge of rural health data? Do you want to know how to communicate data in a way that is easy to use?
Registration is now open for the Fall 2018 cohort of the NOSORH Rural Health Data Institute (RHDI)! The RHDI is a set of eight 90-minute web-based sessions designed to establish a minimum data-use skill set for those working with rural health data. The sessions are designed for those with little or no knowledge of the data use process.
RHDI starts by throwing the term “research” out the window and defining terms in a way that everybody can understand. It moves through the process of collecting your data, cleaning it up, and analyzing it in a way that makes sense. Later sessions help participants work through the steps of crafting their messaging and displaying it in a visualized way so other people can understand it too. By doing very small “homework” assignments aligned to the data use process, participants will end the RHDI with a one-page infographic fact sheet to do whatever they want with it: hang on the fridge in the break room or, better yet, disseminate it to your partners!
The RHDI is open to anyone who has an interest in learning how to use data to improve their work in rural health. Please feel free to share this information with constituents in your state. NOSORH provides a discount for signing up multiple people! More information on the RHDI can be found in the program brochure.
