Partnerships in Preparedness Academic and Practice Partners Working Together to Address Workforce Development
The CDC funded Academic Centers for Public Health Preparedness are a national network of training centers located in Schools of Public Health that work with state and local public health agencies to assess, develop, deliver and evaluate competency-based training relevant to the needs of state and local public health professionals. These geographically dispersed centers work together nationally to share resources so they inturn may work with their local partners to address workforce issues. This presentation will illustrate successful examples of how academic-practice partnerships work together to assess, monitor, develop, and deliver training needs for the workforce.
Learning Objectives: 1) Describe the development of a public health workforce training needs assessment 2) Describe an approach and mechanism for tracking workforce needs for a state 3) Explain the importance and an approach to a collaboratively designed training program for state and local public health workforce.
