Use Public Health Workforce Data for Your Upcoming Research Initiatives

TRAIN
PHF invites researchers to request customized data from TRAIN, a national public health learning management system of state agencies, federal partners, and academic institutions committed to improving public health workforce training. TRAIN's community of over 650,000 learners provides a rich dataset of demographics, competencies, and professional roles of the public health workforce.
 
Apply Quality Improvement Tools to Support Your Measurement Activities 

PHF and the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) have developed a new quick guide to identify quality improvement (QI) tools for measurement activities. This tool provides details on how and when to use QI when choosing measures and indicators, managing data quality, and analyzing and interpreting data. Explore this resource and provide your suggestions to improve the tool.
