Coffee Talk 1: Title V Transformation provides a brief overview of the major changes in the Title V Block Grant guidance related to the new performance measures, Five Year State Action Plan, and emphasis on documenting family engagement in all areas throughout the life course. Coffee Talk 2: Getting to the Table provides provocative questions to consider as Title V professionals seek out a "seat at the table" (or work to create a new table) in the new opportunities evolving from the Title V Block Grant and health transformation in the states. Coffee Talk 3: Leading Change ​focuses on pertinent leadership skills using Dan Heath's process for leading change, followed by Karen Trierweiler's personal experience of leading change in Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment. Coffee Talk 4: Managing Change shares a brief overview of the leadership skills and capacities needed to lead collective impact initiatives, followed by the speaker's personal experience in creating collective action among key players during a major statewide MCH reorganization.

Title V Health Reform Implementation Webinar: State Assessment Tool. Year Developed: 2014. Source: National MCH Workforce Development Center. Presenter(s): Lacy Fehrenbach, Katharine Witgert, Melissa Ellis, and Amy Mullenix. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 57 minutes. Slides

Annotation: This archived webinar introduces a comprehensive self-assessment tool that helps Title V agencies assess health reform-related activities in states. The tool can help define a state's capacity and opportunities to leverage existing MCH skills to drive health transformation - in all its forms - for MCH populations. Iowa recently completed the tool and had this to say: "This tool was helpful for us to think about how Iowa's Title V program interfaces with the health care reform activities going on in our state. It helped us identify areas of strength and provided direction on important next steps as we move MCH forward post ACA implementation. Hopefully, other states will use the tool to ignite conversations in their states".

Title V Five Year Needs Assessment Training: Part 2: Nuts and Bolts on Using Data. Year Developed: 2014. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. Presenter(s): Samara Viner-Brown, MS; Yvonne Goldsmith, Caroline Stampfel, MPH. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 59 minutes. Course Resources

Annotation: Title V legislation requires each state and jurisdiction to conduct a state-wide, comprehensive needs assessment every five years. The needs assessment process can be a useful tool for strategic planning, strategic decision-making and resource allocation. It also provides a way for Title V programs to benchmark where they are and assess progress over a five-year period. To assist states or jurisdictions in preparing their assessments AMCHP hosted a series of virtual trainings to provide guidance on the needs assessment process. The second webinar, The Nuts and Bolts on Using Data, features a presentation from Caroline Stampfel, MPH, currently the Senior Epidemiologist at AMCHP and formerly an MCH Lead Analyst with the Virginia Title V program, on using data in the needs assessment process. Ms. Stampfel’s presentation is followed by two states-in-action profiles, Rhode Island and Alaska, who shared their data strategies, resources, and lessons learned from conducting the five-year needs assessment process. In order to capitalize on the information presented in the virtual training, AMCHP recommended that states consider team participation in the training, i.e., participation from both program and data staff.

Learning Objectives: • Give examples of effective uses of qualitative and quantitative data sources for the needs assessment. • Begin to identify possible frameworks to organize needs assessment data. • Develop next steps/strategies for using data in their own Title V five year needs assessment.

Measuring Science Impact. Year Developed: 2014. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Presenter(s): Harvey Fineberg, MD, PhD; Mary Ari, PhD. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: This special edition of Grand Rounds examined the CDC Science Impact Framework, its development, use underway and opportunities and challenges associated with implementing it across the diverse areas of public health. The Framework utilizes a combination of quantitative and qualitative indicators to measure impact towards health outcomes, through five levels of influence: disseminating science, creating awareness, catalyzing action, effecting change, and shaping the future. The complex dynamics between the levels of influence and the intricate environment in which influence materializes create a path of impact which does not necessarily follow a linear progression. The learning opportunity addresses what kind of impact CDC science has; if published research is likely to have impact on a significant health outcome; and how research findings can be used towards significant improvements in public health practice and policy.
