Transformation of the Maternal and Child Health Block Grant: MCH Transformation 3.0. Year Developed: 2013-2014. Source: U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Michael C. Lu, MD, MPH. Type: Video. Level: Intermediate. Length: varies.

Annotation: In this series of videos, Dr. Lu explains how the U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau has been working in partnership with the leadership in State Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) programs, national MCH leaders, and other stakeholders to develop and refine a new vision (titled MCH 3.0) for transforming the MCH Block Grant to better meet current and future challenges facing the Nation’s mothers and children, including children with special health care needs. Dr. Lu explains how MCHB has used a three-proged approach to begin this process and discusses the evolution of MCH 3.0.

Learning Objectives: • Understand the mission, vision, and partnerships needed to implement MCH 3.0. • Understand the focus on reducing burden, maintaining flexibility, and improving accountability in transforming state Title V performance measure reporting. • Introduce 15 "straw man" performance measures to elicit discussion.

Special Instructions: Access two videos on the right-hand side of the screen.

MCH Needs Assessment Toolkit. Year Developed: 2019. Source: National MCH Workforce Development Center, AMCHP, and the MCH Navigator. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Interactive Learning Tool. Level: Introductory Intermediate Advanced. Length: Self-paced.

Annotation: This training toolkit focuses on learning opportunities and practical tools for use by the Title V workforce in understanding and implementing needs assessment, including community partnerships, data, program monitoring and evaluation, policy analysis, and principles of public health. It was developed by a collaboration of the National MCH Workforce Development Center, AMCHP, and the MCH Navigator.

What is Policy? What is the Policy-Making Process?. Year Developed: 2018. Source: University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health. Presenter(s): Arden Handler, DrPH. Type: Narrated Slide Presentation. Level: Introductory Intermediate. Length: 104 minutes.

Annotation: In this presentation, a recording of a course at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Dr. Handler outlines the terminology used in public policy and the types of public policy as they are practiced; the process and paradigms of making public policy, including the legislative process; and the role of economics in the policy-making process. She rounds off this lecture with an analysis of the most common public policy instruments.

Using Systems Biology Based Approaches for Considerations Across the Life Course: Views from Public Health and Preventative Medicine. Year Developed: 2018. Source: UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families & Communities, Maternal and Child Health Life Course Research Network (LCRN). Presenter(s): Elaine Faustman, PhD. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 15 minutes.

Annotation: This talk focuses on how public health and preventive medical scientists, as well as developmental and reproductive toxicologists, interpret and apply life course health developmental principles, with an emphasis on the first four principles of the Life Course Health Development (LCHD) framework (Health Development, Unfolding, Complexity, and Timing). The focus of this talk is on early development and childhood.

Learning Objectives: 1. Identifying how systems biology concepts inform public health decisions for improving health development 2. Defining the life course “exposome” taking lessons from a child cohort study 3. Discussing approaches for improving our understanding of within and between human variability across development using evolutionary biology principles 4. Applying ontologies for linking and translating observations across model systems and biomarkers for informing human population research 5. Understanding how integrating systems biology concepts improves our health surveillance and intervention

Using Population Data to Complement Fatality Review Data: An Overview of CDC WONDER and Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR). Year Developed: 2018. Source: National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention. Presenter(s): Sigrid A. Economou; Carol Gilbert, MS. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Fatality review includes information often not available through routine quantitative methods. Population data, such as vital statistics, are frequently used to complement fatality review findings. This presentation includes a demonstration of the CDC WONDER, an integrated information and communication system for public health developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The webinar also introduces participants to Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR), a comprehensive approach to help communities use data to reduce infant mortality. The webinar defines population based data, its limitations, limitations of case review data, how to interpret data in light of other evidence, different uses of data, PPOR analytic steps, and how FIMR and PPOR can work together. Available are the archive, slides, questions and answers, a handout, and information about CDC WONDER.

The Emerging Theoretical Framework of Life Course Health Development. Year Developed: 2018. Source: UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families & Communities, Maternal and Child Health Life Course Research Network (LCRN). Presenter(s): Neal Halfon, MD, MPH; Christopher Forrest, MD, PhD. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 15 minutes.

Annotation: In this webinar, Drs. Halfon and Forrest present the 7 principles that comprise their life course health development framework, including the empirical evidence that underlies each principle and the implications for future research. By shining a light on how early experience conditions future biological responses and influences health development pathways, the presenters hope to encourage theory building and testing, inspire innovative transdisciplinary research, and lead to future discussions that can help to mature the framework into a scientific model with descriptive, explanatory, and predictive utility.
