Tuesday, November 5, 2013: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Since the inception of the Public Health Accreditation Board's voluntary national accreditation program, health departments across the country have been engaging in performance improvement activities like preparing for accreditation, conducting quality improvement (QI) efforts, developing performance management systems, and conducting community health improvement initiatives. Due to budget cuts and resource restrictions, several peer-networking and information-sharing groups have emerged around the country to help improve the capacity of local health departments (LHDs). A portion of this session will discuss the benefits of peer-learning for performance improvement work.
Session Objectives: Describe the significance and uniqueness of conducting research in a CHC setting Discuss the role of wellness foundations in shaping community health.
