A Data Primer for Inter-Professional Education: Advancing Knowledge and Skills in Working with Various Databases is designed to help pre-service Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) trainees learn how to formulate good questions and find, select, analyze, and present data. The primer, which was produced by the University of South Dakota with support from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, addresses several maternal and child health (MCH) competencies, including self (MCH knowledge base and critical thinking), others (communication and interdisciplinary team building), and wider community (policy and advocacy). Each chapter includes background information and an exercise to reinforce information presented. The primer is available at the URL above.
