Description: An introductory webinar will be offered for all interested participants. Teams are encouraged to attend this webinar in groups. Comprehensive community health assessment and health improvement planning processes are now necessitated by accreditation and IRS mandates for interested public health departments and non-profit hospitals. This webinar will provide an overview of these processes; touching upon the components of a guiding framework, multi-sector stakeholder engagement, an evidence-based process, key tools and resources, and success metrics. We will discuss the importance of data-driven efforts that engage a range of stakeholders and partners throughout the process. This webinar will explore how health departments, hospitals, health centers, community-based organizations, community leaders, and other key stakeholders can effectively identify and respond to pressing public health concerns and build on existing community assets to achieve sustainable population health impact.
Audience: Individuals and teams in healthcare, community health, public health, and other key stakeholders including community development corporations, regional planning groups, and community leaders/members who want to work collaboratively on community health assessments (CHAs) and community health improvement plans (CHIPs) to improve population health outcomes.
