Public Health Accreditation & Competency Based Learning: A Model Based on the TRAIN Learning Management System, hosted by TRAIN and originally on November 15, 2011, is now available in an on-demand format through TRAIN. Over 140 connections representing hundreds of public health professionals interested in accreditation and performance improvement attended the live webinar, learning how to:
• Recognize the key tracking requirements that meet accreditation standards.
• Explain Kentucky’s use of a self-assessment tool to analyze workforce training needs.
• List at least two reasons why core competencies matter for today’s public health workforce.
• Discuss how one state has delivered a workforce self-assessment survey tool and captured assessment data via the TRAIN learning management system.
Presenters from the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB), Kentucky Department for Public Health, Public Health Foundation (PHF), and University of North Carolina Gillings School of Public Health highlighted the importance of competency based training and education in light of public health accreditation. The Kentucky Department of Health demonstrated a self-assessment tool developed from TRAIN functionality which can be used to analyze workforce training needs.
