Public Health Improvement Webinar: Kentucky's Accreditation and QI Support from Within
November 24, 2014 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
The Kentucky Health Department Association has long supported public health accreditation and quality improvement. As part of a strategic planning retreat in 2010, the Accreditation Coordinators Workgroup was established. Since then, the Workgroup has met regularly to provide support, training and other communication to Kentucky health departments. With help from the Workgroup, six Kentucky health departments have achieved PHAB accreditation status and several more departments are in the process.
Webinar participants will find out more about what low-resource, shared responsibility activities and efforts the Workgroup took to support each other. Join members of the Accreditation Coordinators Workgroup Alan Kalos from the Northern Kentucky Health Department and April Harris from Three Rivers District Health Department on Monday, November 24, 2014 from 2:00-3:00pm ET for this webinar.
The 2015 National Health Impact Assessment Meeting will be held June 16-18, 2015 in Washington, DC. Building on the success of the first two national HIA meetings, this conference will convene a diverse group of individuals interested in learning more about HIA and advancing the field, especially decision-makers and program leaders from multiple sectors and at all levels of governments. Areas of interest include planning, transportation, criminal justice, housing, agriculture, energy, environment, education, fiscal, economic, and labor policy. Meeting registration will open early fall 2014.
