Program Offering from the National Center for Data Services

Posted by on September 8th, 2022 Posted in: Blog

In NPHCO and the Network Family, I told you about NPHCO, the  Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM), and Region 7.  The National Center for Data Services (NCDS) is yet another resource for you as part of NNLM.  NCDS is the newest of NNLM’s national offices and centers.  NCDS was established in July 2021 to develop capacity for data services in the health information community.  NCDS works collaboratively across the Network, drawing upon extensive connections with national data organizations to increase outreach and partner on programming.

NCDS works towards the goal of accelerating discovery and advance health by building a workforce and providing the tools for data-driven research and healthcare.  The focus is on knowledge application and consolidation through courses, coaching, and opportunities to practice learned skills.  Integrating values of open science, reproducibility, inclusivity, and ethical use of data in an educational program for a data-driven approach to building capacity for data-related functions throughout healthcare and public health.

NCDS staff have a keen interest in public health. Their upcoming webinar, Analyzing Health on the Local Level: Accessing State and Regional Substance Use Data,  lands directly at the intersection of data, local public health, and (appropriate to Recovery Month) substance use.  The webinar will share approaches to local and regional health department use of data in identifying trends, informing practice, and developing interventions.
