New to Public Health-Cohort 3: Session 5-Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention

Overview

The New to Public Health Residency Program is an innovative development program designed to build confidence and competency for professionals who are new to public health.

The program is built upon the Foundational Public Health Services Model and develops enhanced knowledge and skills within the foundational areas and capabilities that are essential to public health practice.

The residency program includes an evidence-based practice project, peer networking, mentoring, facilitated reflection and journaling, simulation, and case studies to support the new resident as they transition to practice; while inspiring collaborative, interdisciplinary relationships to promote and protect health at a population level. 

Statement of Need and Purpose

The residency program is designed to provide new public health professionals the foundational capabilities that are essential to public health practice. Overarching residency curriculum focuses on leadership, professional development, role-specific formation and competency. A residency program bridges the workforce by integrating the knowledge of experienced public health professionals and the fresh ideas of new staff to positively affect population health.

Integration of public health professionals from across jurisdictions allows the new public health professional to understand how diversity in the workforce strengthens essential services across city and county lines, and allows for enhanced networking and future collaboration.

Residency programs supplement state and local orientation programs and build upon department-specific policy, procedures, and tasks, to allow the resident to see a fuller picture of the field of public health. 

This contemporary program utilizes a comprehensive practice model that supplements existing knowledge of staff and supports the synthesis of new ideas. The program promotes standardized tools for the participant to customize based on their individual practice. 

Target Audience

This residency program is designed to meet the needs of nurses, social workers, sanitarians, health educators, and other public health professionals that are new to their roles.

Elements of Competence

This continuing education (CE) activity is designed to improve learner competence, and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties’ areas of interpersonal communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice, the Institute of Medicine area of employing evidence-based practice, applying quality improvement, and utilizing information, and the Interprofessional and Nursing areas of values/ethics, roles/responsibilities and interprofessional communication.

Global Learning Objectives

By the end of the residency program, the new public health professional as a member of the interprofessional healthcare team will:

  1. Apply learned concepts from the Foundational Public Health Services’ model to their public health professional practice.
  2. Increase knowledge, skills, and confidence for competent public health practice.
  3. Access tools and resources applicable to public health practice.
  4. Apply health equity and social justice concepts to public health practice.
  5. Demonstrate enhanced cultural competency knowledge and skills in their individual practice.
  6. Research, plan, and present a quality improvement or evidence-based practice project within their local health department or community.

Session Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, the new public health professional as a member of the interprofessional healthcare team will:

  • Explain how public health provides timely, statewide, and locally relevant, and accurate information to the health care system and community on chronic disease and injury prevention and control.
  • Identify statewide and local chronic disease and injury prevention community partners and their capacities, develop and implement a prioritized prevention plan, and seek funding for high priority initiatives.
  • Describe how public health can reduce statewide and community rates of tobacco use through a program that conforms to standards set by the state or local laws and CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health; including, activities to reduce youth initiation, increase cessation, and reduce secondhand smoke exposure, as well as exposure to harmful substances.
  • Identify how public health works actively with statewide and community partners to increase statewide and community rates of healthy eating and active living through a prioritized approach focusing on best and emerging practices aligned with national, state, and local guidelines for healthy eating and active living. 
  • Recognize how public health coordinates and integrates categorically-funded chronic disease and injury prevention programs and services.
  • Evaluate ways to engage members of the community in a community health improvement process that draws from community health assessment data and establishes a plan for addressing priorities. The community health improvement plan can serve as the basis for partnership development and coordination of effort and resources.

Estimated time to complete this session is 7.25 hours.

Successful Completion

Residents will view lectures, panel discussions, participate in cased-based and small-group discussions, participation in simulation and skill-based training, and participate in simulation, skill-based training, and gaming activities over a 12 month period of time.

The residency program also includes an evidence-based practice project, peer networking, mentoring, facilitated reflection, journaling to support the new resident as they transition to practice while inspiring collaborative, interdisciplinary relationships to promote and protect health at a population level.
