This module builds on what we learned about MCH Leadership Competencies 1-9 by introducing you to 5 learning opportunities about Competency 10: Interdisciplinary/Interprofessional Team Building from the MCH Navigator catalog.

These 5 learning opportunities represent some of the most relevant and/or recent online trainings in the field and have been chosen based on their ease of access, focus, brevity, and their integration with principles necessary to advance the transformation of the MCH Block Grant. Trainings have been identified by MCH Navigator staff and further vetted by a group of MCH experts in the states and in academic settings.

Take one or all of the trainings to sharpen your knowledge and skills, either individually or with your colleagues as a team-building exercise.
