Basic Community Health Training Module

The process of working with a community to determine health needs and develop appropriate programs requires different knowledge and skills than those used in a conventional clinical setting.  This module presents an introduction to community program development and evaluation as well as brief descriptions of some commonly used programs.  This module covers programs which provide services, not  projects conducted for research purposes.  (For research projects go to the IRB site or use this link, https://irb.mc.duke.edu). There are links throughout the module to direct learners to web sites for additional information. This training module must be completed, and the test passed, within the previous 24 months of the submission of the Community Health Activity Request form.  If you have questions about the form, email CommunityHealthActivity@notes.duke.edu.


Medical Screening in a Community Setting

Screening refers to evaluating individuals for risk factors or evidence of disease before they are aware they have a disease.  The purpose of screening is to identify those who need diagnostic testing in order to determine who is likely to be helped by treatment to reduce the risk or complications of a disease. By the conclusion of this module, the learner should be able to list the five Principles of Screening; define sensitivity, specificity and positive predictive values; explain quality of evidence and strength of recommendation; and outline the required documentation for approval of a screening or community event.  This training module must be completed within the previous 24 months of the submission of the Community Health Activity Request form.  If you have questions about the form, email CommunityHealthActivity@notes.duke.edu.
