Webinar Description
In September 2018, UIHI will release an aggregate Diabetes Audit Report detailing the health status of urban Native communities. The report is based on Diabetes Audit data submitted by I/T/U clinics to IHS, and looks at a wide spectrum of indicators including demographics, tobacco use and screening, depression screening and management and more. In an effort to make the Diabetes Audit Report more accessible and useful to urban Native communities, UIHI is hosting a discussion on the results within the report and how to best use the results for clinic programs and priorities. Please join us on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 from 10:00 AM PST to 11:00 AM PST for a webinar exploring the report and potential applications of the data. This webinar will explore the results and indicators featured in the report, working with participants to understand the results and how to use this information to best serve their communities and programs. Information in the report can be used to help programs identify health priorities, document and assess health disparities, and assist in program planning, grant writing, advocacy, and community health assessments.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Examine the contents, capabilities, and limitations of the Diabetes Audit Report.
  • Identify the uses and practical applications of the data available through the Diabetes Audit Report.
  • Use the Diabetes Audit Report to identify strengths and address gaps in health indicators and outcomes around diabetes.
