How Can You Support the Development of Successful Academic Health Departments?

Group Learning Together
On May 17, 2013, new members were welcomed into the Academic Health Department (AHD) Learning Community during an interactive webinar meeting. Discussion during the meeting included ideas on furthering the development of successful AHDs and the AHD Learning Community. How can you support this development? Watch the webinar meeting archive and add your comments to Kathleen Amos' latest PHF Pulse Blog post.

 

How Does Your Organization Handle Change?
 
On May 7, 2013, the Public Health Foundation (PHF) sponsored a webinar hosted by the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) titled The PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) Cycle for Change Leaders and Handling Change Resistors. It focused on behaviors that encourage change and how to address resistance to change when using a PDCA Cycle. View this webinar and submit your comments on how you and your organization handle change.

 

Identify and Track Your Organization's Training Needs Throughout the Accreditation Process
 
TRAIN

As more state, tribal, local, and territorial public health departments gather documentation to apply for accreditation, TRAIN, the nation's premier learning management network designed for public health professionals, can be an invaluable asset. Through the use of TRAIN's data collection and vast reporting capabilities, health department leaders have the ability to identify necessary training and track employee performance and development to meet accreditation requirements.

 

Use Evidence-Based Strategies to Address CDC's Winnable Battles

Community Guide Design Element Learn how the University of Pittsburgh Center for Public Health Practice, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, used The Guide to Community Preventive Services (The Community Guide) to implement WalkWorks, a community-based public health program to increase physical activity in six Western Pennsylvania counties.

 

This message is a service of the Public Health Foundation (PHF). For more than 40 years, PHF, a national non-profit organization, has been helping health departments with their quality improvement, performance management, and workforce development needs.
