In light of the current public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vital Records and Their Administration training, scheduled for August 3-5, 2020 in Louisville, KY, will be an all-virtual training. This training will still be held August 3-5, 2020. For specific topics and times, please see the draft course agenda here. Applications are now being accepted and can be found here. There is no registration fee to attend.
The Vital Records and Their Administration: Statistics and Data Quality training will be hosted by NAPHSIS and the Division of Vital Statistics within the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). It will provide an overview of the vital records and health statistics world with a focus on statistics and data quality. This course will provide a good foundation for staff new to vital records.
Staff who are new to our area of public health should strongly consider attending. Even staff who have been working in vital records and vital statistics for several years can benefit from a refresher on these important fundamentals, provided they have not attended this course in the recent past, as limited spots are available.
The deadline for applications is July 7th. Spaces are limited and preference will be shown to those applicants with the least amount of vital records/statistics work experience. Upon approval, logistics information will be sent directly to the applicant by July 15th.
