Native Health Database: UNM Health Sciences Center (DGM Module 1-1)

[Well, here goes. I’ll break open the floodgates on this blogging project. Please let me know if I’m not on the right track with this posting.]

“The Native Health Database contains bibliographic information and abstracts of health-related articles, reports, surveys, and other resource documents pertaining to the health and health care of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Canadian First Nations. The database provides information for the benefit, use, and education of organizations and individuals with an interest in health-related issues, programs, and initiatives regarding North American indigenous peoples.” (from “About the NHD“)

While this database doesn’t focus specifically on technology, it does leverage a digital database and the internet in order to facilitate health-care research through a Native North American lens. A couple of quick searches identified numerous articles that do touch on technology in the delivery of and education about health care in an Indigenous context. Such articles could be used to inform my own research into considering the selection of technology-based delivery methods for theological education in First Nations communities in northern Ontario and Quebec.
