To provide easy access to the most relevant performance improvement resources, the Public Health Foundation (PHF) has recently improved the user experience of the Public Health Improvement Resource Center. The redesigned front page now includes streamlined search characteristics and an updated feature with the latest resources. A rigorous review of the Public Health Improvement Resource Center has been completed and all resources have been evaluated for content, clarity, and relevance.
The Public Health Improvement Resource Center is a searchable database of resources designed to support work in performance improvement. This database contains tools, plans, services, and policies from public health departments, national organizations, small and large nonprofits, government agencies, healthcare organizations, and others. Visitors can search the Public Health Improvement Resource Center by using the 12 Domains of the Public Health Accreditation Board Standards and Measures, the 10 Essential Public Health Services, or keywords such as obesity, environmental health, or health policy. Over the last two years, the Public Health Improvement Resource Center has expanded to over 500 resources.
To build this growing database of resources, PHF is requesting submission of additional resources from partners, colleagues, and other organizations, particularly examples from health departments. Submit resources to PHF_Resources@phf.org or through Facebook or Twitter. The newest and most popular resources can be found on the Public Health Improvement Resource Center homepage and are also regularly posted on PHF’s social media.
"The Public Health Improvement Resource Center is a great collection of public health resources that anyone can use! I really like the new option to search for examples of projects that have been shared by other users because it helps me understand how they use the materials in their health departments."
— Valeria Carlson, MPH, CHES, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Technical Monitor for PHF
