Data Dashboards Video Training

Introduction to the Colorado Health Information Dataset (CoHID), orients users to the Colorado Health Information Dataset, also known as CoHID. CoHID is a central website organized by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment where you can find data from various data sources and programs. This brief training highlights a few of the many important data dashboards that are available through CoHID.

Introduction to Colorado Health Indicators Dashboard  takes a deeper dive into the Colorado Health Indicators dashboard, which is one of many dashboards housed on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Colorado Health Information Dataset (CoHID) webpage. The Colorado Health Indicators Dashboard was created to support local public health agencies in developing their community health assessments and public health improvement plans.

Colorado Public Health Nursing Orientation Toolkit

The Colorado Public Health Nursing Orientation Toolkit is a handbook of recommendations and resources for use by nurses and public health administrators. This handbook supports nurses and administrators in developing a comprehensive orientation specific to the setting/agency in which the nurse works. The Toolkit is prepared in a “pick list” format where the nurse and employer can together determine the depth and breadth of the orientation needed. Resources under each major topic of orientation are listed along with live links to training, training material, readings, resources, and more that nurses and public health administrators can use to design their own custom orientation. This guide was developed as a 2022 Colorado Public Health Association Nursing Section project.
