Working “Upstream” to Prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Year Developed: 2018. Source: Children's Safety Network. Presenter(s): Joanne Klevens, Vicky Roper, and Jim Vetter. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: In this interactive webinar, Dr. Joanne Klevens, an epidemiologist at CDC, explored what ACEs are, their prevalence, their inequitable burden on low-income adults and people of color, and their impact on health and life opportunities. She introduced the World Health Organization’s (WHO) framework for addressing social determinants of health inequities and examined how CDC has used this framework to move its efforts “upstream.” Dr. Klevens presented the evidence around policies that hold the potential to prevent ACEs and the importance of “narrative” to reduce inequities. Vicky Roper, M.Ed., Director of the Kansas Children’s Service League, described how the Kansas Essentials for Childhood project is utilizing the CDC’s “Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect: A Technical Package for Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities” as a framework to move work addressing ACEs upstream. She also shared examples of Kansas’ advocacy, media, messaging, education and awareness, and evaluation efforts. Ms. Roper discussed Kansas’ work to foster family-friendly work environments, which can help to reduce ACEs. The webinar was moderated by Jim Vetter, Ed.M., of Education Development Center, Inc.

Using Process Flow Diagramming To Understand and Improve MCH Systems and Position Title V for Health Care Reform. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. Presenter(s): Amanda Cornett, MPH; Kori Flower, MS, MD, MPH; Kristen Hassmiller Lich, MHA, PhD; Sue Ewy, MS. Type: Video Conference. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 98 minutes.

Annotation: This interactive, hands‐on workshop provides background on process flow diagramming, features a presentation by a state from the National MCH Workforce Development Center cohort, and gives participants an opportunity to practice process flow diagramming using a simulated MCH process. Participants leave with a plan to apply this tool to MCH processes in their state/territory. To lead in health care reform, Title V agencies need enhanced training and tools for understanding complex processes. The National MCH Workforce Development Center (WDC) at UNC Chapel Hill has partnered with MCHB and AMCHP to offer intensive training to state and territorial Title V leaders. In the first WDC cohort, process flow diagramming has been a powerful tool for identifying areas for reducing redundancy and eliminating gaps in services.

Performance Measurement and Title V Transformation: Building Skills to Select and Design Measures for MCH 3.0. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. Presenter(s): Donna Petersen, ScD, MHS; Michael Kogan, PhD. Type: Video Conference. Level: Intermediate. Length: 130 minutes.

Annotation: This skills‐building session provides participants with the knowledge and skills to determine the most appropriate NPMs based on state needs as part of the transformation of Title V; the workshop also focuses on development of state‐initiated Structure/Process measures. The transformation of Title V is almost complete and signifies a new era for MCH programs. During 2014‐15, state Title V programs will be completing five‐year needs assessments to select a new set of state MCH priorities and state performance measures; with the implementation of MCH 3.0, states also will select a subset of national performance measures (NPMs). In 2016, each Title V program will need to develop state‐initiated Structure and Process Measures to directly measure their impact on the NPMs.
