4184.0 Exploring Public Health Leadership Development Evaluation Models and Methods

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 12:30 PM
In 1994, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Public Health Program Practice Office (PHPPO) sponsored the establishment of the National Public Health Leadership Development Network (NLN). The NLN membership includes academic and practice representatives of state, regional, national, and international public health leadership programs. Through the development of leadership skills and shared vision, the institutes/programs facilitate creative, integrated, collaborative approaches to the achievement of the Public Health Core Functions and Essential Public Health Services. Recently, an increased emphasis has been placed on the evaluation of these leadership development and executive management training programs with respect to demonstrating program impact and related individual, team, and organizational-level outcomes. In response, the NLN promotes the identification and dissemination of evaluation methodologies and tools to advance best practices in leadership development evaluation. The present session will include a panel discussion of innovative approaches to leadership development and evaluation. Models, methods, and tools will be presented, discussed, and shared to assist in related efforts to strengthen the performance and effectiveness of public health systems.
Session Objectives: Describe innovative practices in public health leadership programs including demonstrating incremental gains due to these programmatic components Discuss various models and methods of evaluation of public health leadership training and development Identify evaluation models that include demonstrating impact at the individual, team, and organizational levels
