Public Health Education and Detailing Program
The New Hampshire Public Health Education and Detailing (PHED) Program was launched in 2014 with the goal to offer medical providers face-to-face visits with public health professionals in order to provide access to the most up-to-date training and education of infectious disease testing and treatment guidelines. Our staff is also available to provide in-service training for the staff at hospitals, physician practices, urgent care centers, community health centers and long-term care facilities.

Our Mission

handshake graphicThe PHED Team works to improve public health by promoting evidence-based practices, building partnerships with clinical providers and facilities, and promoting practice tools, prevention messaging, and education for both providers and patients. Our work focuses on infection prevention and improving infectious disease screening, testing, and management.

Our Goals

The goals of the PHED program are to:

  1. Improve prevention, screening, and management of infectious disease
  2. Build partnerships with NH providers to improve population health indicators
  3. Expand the visibility of DPHS to providers in NH
  4. Work with providers to decrease infectious disease disparities in NH.

What is Detailing?
The public heath detailing model is based on academic detailing which promotes linkages with physician practices and health systems. Through face-to-face visits, health care providers receive:

  • Evidence-based recommendations on testing and treatment for infectious diseases
  • Relevant surveillance data and clinical information
  • The benefit of having information and services brought directly to them

Public Health Detailing Programs have been used successfully in several communities throughout the country. An initial detailing visit is conducted by a detailing specialist to help us better understand the unique needs of your practice. Once that visit is completed, an additional technical assistance visit can be provided if the provider feels it would be beneficial for their practice and/or staff. All we ask of providers is that they fill out two brief surveys to help us evaluate our program and better tailor our resources to help make them as useful as possible. The first survey is sent out right after the initial visit and then a second follow-up survey is sent out three months after. It measures knowledge gain and practice change.

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 our team is working hard at developing our online platforms to be able to provide you with electronic detailing (e-detailing) through virtual platforms. Although we prefer in person visits we hope this will help to extend our reach and allow us to maximize resources for our provider community.
