Annotation

n this series of learning modules developed in collaboration with the MCH Navigator, we will discuss how the MCH Leadership Competencies — specifically those related to critical thinking (population data, critical analysis, research, epidemiology, and application of evidence-based practice guidelines) — form a supporting structure to: (1) understand the evidence base; (2) develop a plan to move from an analysis of populations needs to evidence-based/informed action steps to address those needs; and (3) use trusted tools to advance health equity within the framework of social determinants of health.

Learning Objectives

• Consider the role of a leader in identifying an issue or problem, framing it as a specific question, considering it from multiple perspectives, evaluating relevant information, and developing a reasoned resolution

• Explain the process by which critical thinking informs and aids in addressing a clinical, organizational, community-based, or research challenge

• Discuss how evidence-based decision making and implementation science are critical thinking skills
