Watch Session
Credit

4.00 Advanced CECH

Overview

High-quality health information and skills to locate evidence are important to the health education profession. This is apparent during the COVID-19 pandemic where misinformation (infodemiology) arose as a challenge. Recent events highlight the need for public health professionals skilled in combatting misinformation but also in understanding the need for evidence in their daily practice. 
 
Presenters introduce the importance of using high-quality health information resources for evidence-based health education in the infodemiology community. Learn about the concepts of infodemiology and infodemic and why they are important in the field of health education. 
  
This is a two-part hands-on workshop. In the first part of this workshop, participants will learn through numerous exercises how to find high-quality information that they can put to use in health education practice. In the second part of the workshop, participants break into virtual breakout rooms and discuss proven strategies that can be put into practice.

Learning objectives: 
  
1. Define infodemiology and infodemic, and describe their significance in health education practice.

2. Locate literature about infodemic management and health communication using PubMed features.

3. Locate evidence-informed tools and demonstrate their use to locate policies and/or programs to improve community health. 

4. Translate audience research findings to shape health education messages and outreach. 

5. Describe best practices for health education and outreach materials design and content.

Overview

A 1999 report issued by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences indicated that, in the prior year, of the 30,000+ research grants and contracts awarded by the NIH only 9 were led by American Indian or Alaska Native investigators. This presentation describes remarkable advances in increasing the representation of such scientists among those whose work is sponsored by the world’s leading biomedical research agency. It includes lessons learned and their extension to preparing an even wider array of underrepresented, disadvantaged researchers to successfully compete for support of their work and to become leaders in their respective fields. 

1. Identify an effective mix of didactic and experiential methods by which to engage, retain, and equip early-stage investigators to pursue scientifically rigorous, cultural responsive public health research;
2. Recognize the knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and skills that increase the likelihood of receiving support to undertake sponsored research, and
3. Broaden approaches to evaluating the processes and outcomes of successful research career development programs.

Health literacy is a key skill for health educators and health care professionals to clearly communicate with their intended audiences. More than 10 years ago, Health Literacy Media (HLM), originally Health Literacy Missouri, was founded to help health care professionals more clearly communicate health information to their patients and wider audiences. Health Literacy Missouri's goal is to create and train on “effective and evidence-based health literacy tools to bridge the gap between complex information, clear understanding, and sustainable behavior”. In this walk and learn, you will learn about the genesis of HLM and about the tools it uses to improve health literacy. 

Participants will be able to describe at least three tools to bridge the gap of miscommunication and improve health literacy education.

    Overview

    This session is supported by Eta Sigma Gamma.

    The preparation of future health education professionals requires a strong foundation. This strong foundation includes understanding the presence of social media in everyday life and its influence on health behavior. Current events such as the COVID-19 pandemic have shown the benefits of social media to deliver public health information across platforms. Similarly, other public health issues such as sexual violence have used social media platforms and media campaigns like the #MeToo movement to raise awareness and educate. Future professionals should also be equipped with the knowledge necessary to apply ethical principles. Integrating the Public Health Code of Ethics into university curriculums can prepare students to make ethical health decisions when facing issues that impact vulnerable populations. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Discuss the influence of social media on the communication of public health issues.

    2. Describe how integrating the Public Health Code of Ethics into university curriculums can train future public health leaders to make ethical health decisions.

    Overview

    Our rapid transition to online teaching has prompted us to rethink the ways we engage students in our courses.  Online platforms offer many tools we can use to make our sessions more inclusive, productive, and fun.  By integrating applied improvisation, we can cultivate trust and engagement and foster a human connection that supports a rich learning environment.  This session will incorporate didactic elements and interactive exercises so participants can practice the science and art of connecting with others in an online environment. Participants will leave with a collection of ideas they can try right away in their classrooms and in collaborative meetings. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1.  Understand the importance of connection as an essential component of learning and collaborating in online environments.

    2.  Understand the shift in paradigm that online environments require for productive learning and collaborating.

    3.  Describe how to cultivate this connection using online tools, facilitation strategies, and play.

    Availability and Benefits of Lifestyle Management Programs for Arthritis to Reach Minority and Rural Populations

    Watch Session
    Credit

    1.50 Entry

    Overview

    Arthritis-appropriate, evidence-based interventions (AAEBIs) such as chronic disease self-management programs and physical activity programs, have been shown to decrease arthritis and disability and improve quality of life. Despite their availability, programs are underused which limits access to quality community-based programming where people live, work, learn, and recreate. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, federal regulations have approved remote delivery of AAEBI programs, but the effectiveness and outcomes of these delivery methods have not yet been evaluated. This presentation will describe the benefits of providing evidence-based programs approved by the CDC and the HHS Administration for Community Living. A second panelist will discuss the Walk with Ease program strategies and abilities to reach underserved populations. A third panelist will review the principal findings of a research study on remote delivery of programs for older adults with arthritis and under-served communities/caregivers during COVID-19. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1.        Describe at least 3 characteristics of AAEBI, or lifestyle management programs for arthritis, recognized by federal health agencies (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, HHS Administration for Community Living).
    2.        Describe the benefits of providing an AAEBI program and opportunities for federal funding. 
    3.        Describe principal findings of research study on AAEBI programs and the need to reach minority and rural populations.

    Overview

    The COVID-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges and strains on federal, state, and local K-12 education systems, teachers, students, parents, the allied health/social services staff, and related community organizations and businesses.  In addition to educational schedules being periodically disrupted due to high COVID positivity rates, teachers, students, and parents have been thrust into virtual learning environments with little preparation.  Low-income and minority students have been disproportionately impacted (e.g. no training, insufficient bandwidth, and little preparation) while students with social and emotional issues and special learning needs have been denied access to comprehensive services. Acute teacher shortages by grade level, subject matter, and geography have been further magnified by the pandemic.  In our final plenary session, this panel presentation will explore the challenges and opportunities for the future of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child framework presented by COVID-19, as well as policy, practice, and research recommendations in the context of a potential new hybrid model of education and at the dawn of new health and education leadership at the federal level.
