|Dear Subscriber, |
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.
|How to Develop Your Own Driver Diagram to Address a Health Challenge|
With the goal of helping organizations use population health driver diagrams to address community health challenges, PHF has launched the Developing a Population Health Driver Diagram tool that provides steps for organizations to construct their own driver diagrams. A population health driver diagram can be used collaboratively by public health, healthcare, and other partners to identify the potential primary and secondary drivers that can help to achieve an identified community health objective called an AIM. Learn how you can develop and use population health driver diagrams in your community, or pilot one of the existing driver diagrams.
|E-Learning Opportunity Available for Instructional Designers and Distance Learning Specialists|
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in partnership with PHF, invite distance learning educators responsible for developing online training products to apply to participate in the third installment of the E-Learning Institute. Running from February through June 2015, this program will equip participants with practical skills and promising practices to create quality online training products with the guidance of mentors from CDC. Professionals from state, tribal, local, territorial, and international health departments who are responsible for developing online training products are encouraged to apply. Find out more about dates, requirements, and application instructions for the program.
