EPI Workshop for Health Care Providers
A three day workshop has begun, administered by the Ministry of Health, in an effort to effectively collect and analyse data in health care facilities, using ‘EPI Info’ – an analytical tool used to analyse health data.
Present at the workshop were groups of health care professionals including; the seven (7) Health Districts, Dominica Planned Parenthood Association (DPPA) and the HIV Office.
This workshop focuses on moving away from just data collection and reporting, to include analysis of data such as HIV statistics.
Mr. Dave Laudat, Public Health Specialist in the Health Information Unit says the workshop will assist participants in reviewing their own data and allow that data to influence the way that they practice health services on the ground.
Participants will attain knowledge and receive guidelines on how to put into practice the information they were given.
