The use of clinical and public health indicators and community research resources will be discussed at the next CCTST Grand Rounds.
From 11 a.m. to noon, Russell Kirby, PhD, professor and Marrell Endowed Chair in Community and Family Health at the University of South Florida, will discuss, "We Count What We Can Count, We Measure What We Can Measure: Are Traditional Perinatal Indicators Relevant in the 21st Century Context?”
Kirby will review the origins, use, and scientific utility of major clinical and public health indicators of perinatal outcomes, identify links between theory and practice relative to clinical measures as public health indicators, and illustrate a methodology for developing and evaluating new clinical indicators.
From noon to 1 p.m., Jennifer Chubinski, director of community research at The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and Mark Carrozza, health informatics developer at the foundation, will present, "An Introduction to Community Research from The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati.”
They will summarize resources available from the foundation, specifically its survey data collection projects, describe how the foundation shapes its research work around community needs, and detail how to access years of foundation survey data for community research.
CCTST Grand Rounds are free of charge and open to the public. Continuing education credits are offered.
