Released in 2018, momentum is building behind using these competencies for workforce development for individuals engaged in quality improvement, performance management, workforce development, accreditation, or community health assessment and improvement activities. More than 300 people joined us in November 2018 for a webinar
launching the PI Competencies, and the archive of the webinar
has been accessed more than 300 times.
The annual Public Health Improvement Training
(PHIT), which took place June 12-13, 2019 in New Orleans, LA, offered participants an opportunity to dig deeper into the PI Competencies and work together to identify high priority areas for workforce development for PI professionals during the session Building Performance Improvement Skills to Support Public Health
All session content throughout PHIT was aligned with the PI Competencies, with session presenters having identified which PI Competencies their sessions address when developing their content for the more than 250 attendees.
More than 65 people packed the Building Performance Improvement Skills to Support Public Health session at PHIT 2019.
there’s more to come! The PI Competencies will be the focus of a session at this summer’s National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Annual
– Building Performance Improvement Knowledge and Skills
on July 10, 2019 at 11:30am – in Orlando, FL, and resources are being developed to enhance access to training that builds the knowledge and skills described in the PI Competencies. The TRAIN Learning Network
contains thousands of courses relevant for public health professionals, and we are in the process of developing tailored searches for TRAIN that will retrieve courses aligned with PI Competencies. Working with the PI Competencies Subgroup
, areas where searches might be the most helpful are being identified and search strategies developed. Stay tuned for additional information about that in the near future or join our NACCHO Annual presentation to learn more!
