PHF and ACHI Partner to Support Hospital Population Health Improvement Efforts

The Public Health Foundation (PHF) strives to create opportunities to achieve public health and health care system alignment to improve community health. With this in mind, PHF is partnering with the Association for Community Health Improvement (ACHI) to provide technical assistance and training to hospitals and health systems, and their community partners, that will advance population health objectives. Discover how PHF and ACHI are working together to improve the health of communities.

New Resources Available to Support the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals

Council on Linkages Logo As part of ongoing efforts to support public health professionals and organizations in integrating the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (Core Competencies) into workforce development activities, the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice has recently made several new resources available on the PHF website. View archives of the latest webinars, video, and a new example of how the Core Competencies are being used by public health professionals to learn from the experiences of others.

 

Rapid Cycle Kaizen for Process Improvement
 
With public health organizations prioritizing quality improvement - both for accreditation readiness and for the overall success of organizational objectives - it is no surprise that Kaizen (Japanese for "change for the better") has become a popular approach. PHF developed and has been using a Rapid Cycle Kaizen approach for many years to engage cross-functional teams to respond over a brief time frame - two to three days. Find out more about PHF's Kaizen process improvement events and recently developed tools that can help your organization tackle sizable challenges in a shortened time frame.

 

American Journal of Public Health Highlights TRAIN Data in April Issue

TRAIN In its April 2015 supplement issue focusing on advancing Public Health Services and Systems Research (PHSSR), the American Journal of Public Health (AJPH) published "Profile of the Public Health Workforce: Registered TRAIN Learners in the United States." The paper uses TRAIN data to describe the public health workforce and its characteristics. Read more about this use of the TRAIN data available to researchers and how to submit your own request for access.

Immunization Protects All of U
National Infant Immunization Week is April 18-25, 2015
Vaccines have greatly reduced infectious diseases that once routinely killed or harmed many infants, children, and adults in the United States. However, the viruses and bacteria that cause vaccine-preventable diseases still exist and can be passed on to people who are not protected by vaccines. Learn more about immunization from Dr. Amanda Cohn, Deputy Director of the Immunization Services Division at CDC, who shares eye-opening statistics about the topic in her post to the PHF Pulse blog.
