Participants are evaluated using the Quad Council s Tier 1 Public Health Professionals Competency Assessment prior to beginning and upon completion of the program.
Opportunities for Aligning Public Health and Healthcare Workforce Development As public health and healthcare become more closely aligned, and hospitals and health departments work together on community health improvement efforts, this has presented an opportunity for identifying competencies that span public health and healthcare to better support development of population health skills that benefit the health workforce as a whole.
Public Health Nurse Residency programs or published literature on the subject is virtually nonexistent. Key lessons learned will be highlighted to assist other institutions interested in this aspect of workforce development.
An additional tier was added to the original competency set, to include support staff, and the original competencies were modified to make them more relevant to environmental staff.
The Center offers state and jurisdictional Title V leaders and their partners training, collaborative learning, coaching and consultation to address locally identified public health systems challenges. The workgroup utilizes SurveyMonkey to administer a training needs assessment every two years.
These questions and others will be explored with participants during this interactive session designed to share ideas, strategies, and resources for ensuring a skilled population health workforce.
A Public Health Nurse Residency Program In an aging workforce, the need for recruiting and retaining new public health nurses is great. A PHNRP will both expand upon staffs knowledge base and cultivate cross-departmental relationships with other public health professionals and community leaders.
The challenge was to develop an instrument that was relevant to both the health and environmental sides of the agency. SinceDivision personnel have completed self-assessments, expanded training, and set annual performance goals utilizing the core competencies.
Successes and challenges and an evaluation of the course offerings will be presented. An informed workforce allows LHDs to achieve better health outcomes in the community.
Over the years, PHIMC has built a strong model for attracting, developing, and retaining the 20 young public health professionals that participate in the program each year.
The workgroup also struggled with providing clear guidance on the utilization of the prioritization tool. Short-term outcomes include evidence that the Title V workforce is applying Center skills and tools in Center-supported activities.
Surprisingly, the vast majority of participants strongly disagreed or disagreed that any content could be online only. This session will discuss implementation of these courses at several academic undergraduate institutions including an international site as well as a local health department.
In addition, workforce development at health departments is an important part of accreditation criteria and capacity building processes. Session facilitators will elicit discussion about the use of a mixed methods approach to capture impact data at the state level. Data will be shared about training being accessed and completed by public health and healthcare professionals, competencies being addressed, and where overlap exists that may create unique opportunities for building collaboration.
Examples of results and impact will be discussed, and session participants will be encouraged to discuss other examples of evaluation strategies found to be useful in documenting the impact of workforce development activities. Six sessions are held monthly in four-hour time blocks.
Not all LHD staff have had formal training in public health and may lack a fundamental understanding of the tenets underlying public health practice. Changing this stigma and equipping organizations with strategies and tools to attract, develop, and retain public health professionals from the start of their careers is the key to creating a strong public health workforce.
Through small group discussion and brainstorming, attendees will identify barriers they might face to implementing such a philosophy and translate best practices into actionable strategies to overcome these barriers.
Although beyond the specific scope of the Center s funding agreement, these short, medium, and long-term impacts are ultimately expected to advance health outcomes for MCH populations.
Courses include an introduction to public health and overviews of epidemiology, behavioral health, environmental health, health policy, and global health. Session participants will explore strategies and potential next steps for building similar competencies within the population health workforce — for both public health and healthcare professionals.
In order to assist with these two needs, The University of Texas UTHealth School of Public Health has created an online public health certificate curriculum for undergraduate students. Through this work, PHIMC has learned some important lessons and best practices that can be implemented across various public health organizations to create a strong workforce.
In this workshop, attendees will learn how to develop an organization-wide philosophy that values workforce development. Medium term outcomes are evidence that the Title V workforce is applying Center skills and tools in non-Center supported activities. A group of southeastern Wisconsin public health nurses formed to create an evidence-based Public Health Nurse Residency Program PHNRP with the aim of supporting new public health nurses with standardized, current tools and resources needed for their role.
Since the public health field frequently must do more with less, employee professional development is often viewed as a drain of resources rather than an asset that will benefit the individual employee, the organization, and ultimately, the public health workforce as a whole.
What tools will help with implementation of the Priority Competencies for Population Health Professionals? Using the PHNRP as a catalyst for change, we, a collective group of public health professionals, can work together to elevate public health to new heights.
What types of training and curricula would best develop the skills identified as needed? Based off the Foundational Public Health Services model and adult learning principals, participants utilize learned skills to enhance their practice, and subsequently programs and services in their community.
Based on the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals, a consensus set of foundational skills developed by the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice for public health professionals that are widely used in public health organizations across the country, the Priority Competencies for Population Health Professionals offer a step forward in creating alignment and a common language for workforce development that bridges public health and healthcare.Over the last several months, our consultants have been working diligently to recruit and interview a broad array of talented applicants.
