Upcoming Webinars

Posted in: Webinars and Training

Are you or your colleagues looking for free professional development opportunities to sharpen your skills? NNLM has a plethora of webinars and online classes coming up, including:

  • Bridging the Digital Divide: Telehealth’s Double-edged Sword on December 5, 2023
    Despite its promise, telehealth has become a “double-edged sword”: the technology with potential to reduce health inequities by increasing access to healthcare also holds the capacity to exacerbate structural inequities. Specifically, in order to achieve more equitable telehealth, leaders in health care and communities must address a person’s: (1) digital fluency, the ability to use digital tools efficiently and effectively, and (2) the capacity for health advocacy or a person’s ability to advocate for their own health needs.
  • Health Data Privacy in the Library on January 11, 2024
    This webinar will explore the role libraries play in patron health journeys, which includes the layout of our physical spaces, the way we handle sensitive documents, which resources we share, and more. Privacy advocate Tess Wilson will discuss practical approaches to patron support and ways we might teach patrons about their health data safety.
  • Bioinformatics and Biology Essentials For Librarians: Databases, Tools and Clinical Applications starting January 16, 2024
    This 14-week, 30 credit-hour self-paced online class reviews basic biology concepts and takes a deep dive into NCBI Molecular Biology Databases. This class is designed both for librarians who offer, or intend to offer, bioinformatics services; and also for librarians who use gene and protein information on a periodic or irregular basis to serve their patrons.
  • From Problem to Prevention: Evidence-Based Public Health on January 30, 2024
    Curious about evidence-based public health (EBPH) but not sure where to start? This class will explain the basics of evidence-based public health (EBPH) and highlight essentials of the EBPH process such as identifying the problem, forming a question, searching the literature, and evaluating the intervention.
  • Health Literacy of People Living with Mental Health or Substance Use Disorders on February 7, 2024
    The webinar will provide an overview of a program of research examining the multidimensional health literacy levels of this population and how it affects their health outcomes. The research draws comparisons with other populations and explores the connection between health literacy and service utilization.

Registration is required for all NNLM classes and webinar. For the full list, please check out the NNLM training calendar.
