Dear Colleague,

PHF E-News brings you the latest information on how you can use performance management, quality improvement, and workforce development to improve the quality and performance of your organization and the health of your community.
Learn How States Are Promoting Appropriate Use of Antibiotics in a New Antibiotic Stewardship Toolkit from CDC and PHF

As an element of Get Smart About Antibiotics Week, the Public Health Foundation (PHF) has worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to release Antibiotic Stewardship Implementation Framework for Health Departments, a toolkit designed to support state, tribal, local, and territorial health department efforts to promote appropriate use of antibiotics and reduce healthcare associated infections. As antibiotic resistant infections increase healthcare costs and contribute to negative health outcomes1, the work of health departments to promote appropriate antibiotic use has become increasingly important. Learn more about the Implementation Framework as well as additional resources and tools which may be helpful for developing or improving your own antibiotic stewardship programs.

Nearly 100 preparedness courses developed by the PERLCs are now available on TRAIN. Through a collaboration between PHF and CDC, the total number of preparedness courses has increased to nearly 350. Learn more about the availability of PERLCs and preparedness content on TRAIN.

Academic Health Department Research Agenda Released by the Council on Linkages

The Academic Health Department (AHD) Research Agenda offers potential research questions focused on the AHD model - a type of partnership within public health in which practice organizations, such as health departments, and academic institutions that train future health professionals are formally affiliated. Developed by the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice through its AHD Learning Community, this research agenda aims to support and encourage collaborative research on the structure, functions, and impacts of AHD partnerships. See the recently released AHD Research Agenda to get started.
