Sharing Session (60 minutes)
Thursday, Jul 15

Room 25
Conference Track:
Best Practices and Their Impact on the Six Winnable Battles

This session will explore the steps taken by Lake Cumberland District Health Department (KY) to promote organizational accountability and prepare for accreditation through effective leadership. Using national public health leadership competencies, the Kentucky Public Health Leadership Institute (KPHLI) ran its year-long program for 35 supervisors at Lake Cumberland. Eight accreditation preparedness teams used the theories and skills taught in KPHLI to prepare projects aimed at improving local health department performance. Presenters will describe each of the projects and their impact, and how the KPHLI curriculum was developed to meet Lake Cumberland’s needs. Lastly, presenters will define the value of the overall staff experience.
