CDC's Collaboration with Academia to Strengthen Public Health Workforce Capacity: PART A -- Core Curricular Enhancements Strategic Direction A2 -- Promote educational enhancements that include transdisciplinary and interprofessional population health training Activity I: Medical Assistants Resources and Training on Immunization (MARTi) MARTi is a website hosted and updated by the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR). MARTi was developed to provide a collection of immunization training, education, and resource materials for medical assistants and those responsible for their training, such as office managers or supervisors. The website provides reviewed and credible training and education programs and resources specifically developed for the education and reading level of medical assistants. Activities will include the following: --Manage and update the website content and resources as new vaccine recommendations and best practices become available and redesign the navigation of the website to feature resources offering continuing education (CE) credits --Create newsletters and social media announcements --Develop responsive design website to provide access through mobile devices --Assemble a committee of experts to advance use of the website and recommend improvements. Committee will convene via conference call (3 or 4 times a year). The committee will consist of key groups including the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) and the Professional Association of Healthcare Organization Management (PACHOM) as well as post-secondary institutions training future medical assistants. CDC will not direct or manage any aspects of the committee. Such involvement implicates the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) --Update display to exhibit MARTi at national conferences targeted to medical assistants - AAMA and PAHCOM - state and local meeting of medical assistant societies. --Develop marketing template to report how materials are being used and by whom and provide ongoing utilization metrics --Expand marketing of MARTi to educators training future medical assistants Activity II: Immunization Resources for Undergraduate Nursing (IRUN) The IRUN project seeks to improve the integration of immunization into undergraduate nursing curricula. A committee of experts provided recommendations to develop training and education materials and resources for future nurses in BSN programs. CDC will not direct or manage any aspects of the committee. Such involvement implicates the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is a key partner. The activities will include: --Publish the IRUN Framework in a journal --Develop and distribute immunization teaching resources including : PowerPoint decks, case studies in pdf and html formats and simulation scripts --Convene committee as needed to review materials and/or make additional recommendations Activity III: Teaching Immunization for Medical Education (TIME) TIME is a print-based curriculum designed for use in medical schools to support immunization instruction. The materials provide student objectives, learning objectives, key teaching points, and resources. The case-based TIME modules provide ready-to-use instructional materials that can be integrated into existing medical curricula. The modules include vaccine indications and contraindications, immunization schedules, and recommendations on efficient ways to increase vaccination levels. The case-based modules were developed in the mid-1990s. In 2016 an environmental scan was conducted to assess effective teaching methods including current and effective technologies used at US medical schools with the goal of improving the TIME modules and advancing immunization teaching of future physicians. Recommendations from the environmental scan included transitioning the print-based case studies to e-learning modules. In 2018, detailed recommendations to transition the print modules to e-learning modules were developed. The transition will be a major undertaking and will span multiple project years. The activities will include: --Review of the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research's (APTR) capacity to host a Learning Management System --Assess APTR's and CDC's capacity to update and maintain the modules
