YKHC should decide how "atomic" it wants its content to be. Is it better to group single-pages together within a category, or to group all entries into one long page? Examples:
 
* [[:Category:Ancillary_Services|Ancillary Services]] is a single, long document
 
* [[:Category:Ancillary_Services|Ancillary Services]] is a single, long document
* [[:Category: Bush Medicine|Bush Medicine]] breaks individual entries out into separate pages of their own, for more direct access.

* [[:Category: Bush Medicine|Bush Medicine]] is a category, with separate pages for each topic.

Each approach has its advantages.

The Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation electronic Provider Orientation Manual

Consult the User's Guide for general information on using wiki software.

Structure

The canonical structure of the ePOM appears in the left-hand navigation. Each "chapter" is a wiki category, which can contain sub-categories and pages. You can always use the links in the left column to navigate the site. However, there are no constraints requiring documents to be placed in this hierarchy, and some may fall entirely outside of it. Oftentimes, searching will be the quickest route to the content you seek.

Redlinks

Because the contents of the ePOM are in flux, we have only fleshed-out a few sections. When no page or category has been built yet, its link appears red (in the wiki world, these are known as "redlinks"). Clicking on one of those links will prompt you to create the page yourself. You can back-up if you're not ready to do so.

Editing

The ePOM uses a lightweight graphical editor to simplify the process of editing pages, but the standard wiki markup you may be familiar with from other wikis is still valid. As is a lot of simple html, if you're familiar with basic markup.

Example Content

In addition to the ePOM structure, some data has been entered, to provide a nucleus for discussion.

Long Pages vs. Categories

YKHC should decide how "atomic" it wants its content to be. Is it better to group single-pages together within a category, or to group all entries into one long page? Examples:

Each approach has its advantages.

Pages with Structure

  • Botulism has an automatically-generatead Table of Contents, because it has internal headings
  • Fish Finger does not
