  • There are a variety of training options in the region.There are staff initiated trainings and also programs that are offered through the Community of Interests, and the Focused Outreach programNER also promotes classes offered by the Medical Library Association, The National Training center, and Outreach Evaluation Resource Center events.In this section we will be talking about our Community if Interest Model and the effect on our training and outreach program.In the next section we will discus the Focused outreach Model.
  • First we are going to start with a map that covers our combined training programs.This map descripts our training in the region. Starting from the darkest points. You can see that the Worcester area and along the boarder with CT has been our highest reach.150-300 range is into CT and parts of down east Maine.70-150 Boston metro area, northern RI, again in the down east Maine area.20-70 southern CT, south shore, MA, Springfield, MA area, Burlington, VT, Portland, ME (western Maine)1-20 rest of CT, Mass, NY boarder, North shore in MA, parts of VT, NH, and Maine boarder, and northern Maine,Zero in central main, parts of VT, NH boarder with Maine. Small pocket in Western, MA.Training sessions: 224Attendees: 3,276Sessions w/more than 50% minorities: 33 Sessions conducted via webinar: 37 (approximately 1 every two weeks)When appropriate NER offers continuing education credits.
  • The five themes that emerged from our Regional Advisory Council’s Strategic Planning Session are:Healthy Communities: Develop formal and informal approaches to working with community-based organizations and facilitating partnerships.Health Literacy: Focus on communication of information and critical literacy skills needed for personal and community empowerment.Health Care Workforce: Identify trends related to the ongoing development of students, professionals, and librarians in the health care setting.HealthIT: Identify technology trends that affect information systems within a health care setting and efforts to incorporate mandated implementation of electronic health records.Knowledge Management: Seeks to organize and leverage corporate knowledge and external best-practices to forward innovation and change within an organization.Each COI offers professional development opportunities on these topics.Our funded projects need to specify, which topic area that their project addresses. COI Members are invited to review proposals.Members have shared how helpful they found participating in the review process.Each year, there is a small amount of funding to support programming.The funding has been used to host a professional development day and pay honorariums for guest speakers for webinars.
