PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The training is designed to increase knowledge and change competency of current practices in birth defects surveillance and research to improve public health efforts to prevent birth defects. The 2019 NBDPN Virtual Meeting will cover topics in birth defects surveillance, research, and prevention to keep public health and medical professionals abreast of current issues affecting the field of birth defects. This new knowledge should aid them in understanding current national standards and guidelines for improving birth defects surveillance. Additionally, we will provide updates on data analysis methodologies, surveillance for chromosomal defects, and the use of electronic health records. This will be a multi-day virtual meeting composed of pre-recorded sessions. We will have eight speakers from organizations such as Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, Baylor College of Medicine, Boston University School of Public Health, and Michigan Department of Health.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:
1. Describe the use of, and accuracy of, at least two genetic diagnostic methods.
2. Identify two pros and two cons between using data mining versus traditional analysis methods.
3. Describe the basic approach to calculating and interpreting p-values and confidence intervals.
4. Describe three concepts in leveraging health information exchange for public health surveillance.
5. Explain the difference between non-invasive screening and genetic testing and their implications for treatment.
6. Describe the importance of inter-professional collaboration in birth defects surveillance, research, and epidemiology.
