NACCHO is pleased to announce the launch of Change Management for Public Health, a new Elearning course in our Management Essentials series. The need for change management skills is rising to the forefront of public health leadership and management. It has been identified as a critical knowledge area for high performance public workforce by the National Consortium for Public Health Workforce Development because effective change management is often what makes the difference between a successful or failed initiative. Change management training was noted as a key training need in the 2017 PHWINS as the skills in change management were consistently rated as beginner or unable to perform, while the importance of the skill was rated as very high, indicating a training gap.
Change Management for Public Health is a 6 module, interactive learning course that is informed by field experts and is supplemented by examples and stories from local health departments. The course is designed to introduce key concepts in change management theory and practice while also offering tools, resources, and real public health examples that all health departments can use to adapt the process to their needs. The asynchronous course meets the following course objectives:
- Preparing for Change: Develop the ability to define various types of change, describe a change vision, and overcome resistance to change.
- Planning for Change: Identify stakeholders in the change process, select and train a change management team, and develop an implementation strategy for change.
- Instituting Change: Describe what is necessary to implement and sustain change.
This course is brought to you with generous support from the Centers for Disease Control, and there is no cost for participants associated with the course..
