Individual + Policy, System, and Environmental (I+PSE) Conceptual Framework for Action Training Bundle. Year Developed: 2022. Source: MCH Navigator. Presenter(s): Angie Tagtow, MS, RD; Dena Herman, PhD, MPH, RD; Leslie Cunningham-Sabo, PhD, RDN. Type: Interactive Learning Tool. Level: Intermediate. Length: Self-paced.

Annotation: This Training Bundle contains tailored learning opportunities that serve as building blocks to drive Title V MCH transformation by integrating direct service initiatives with policy (organizational/ public), system (simple/complex) and environmental (built/natural) approaches. These materials are centered on the Individual + Policy, System, and Environmental (I+PSE) Conceptual Framework for Action and can support innovative strategies to advance Title V MCH nutrition services and other topical areas. MCH practitioners, whether as individuals or teams, can apply the information provided from online modules, recorded webinars, articles, worksheets, case studies, and reflection to identify, plan, and implement policy, system, and environmental strategies further building Title V MCH capacity, practice-based evidence, and community/population impact.

Learning Objectives: • Define and apply the Individual + Policy, System and Environment (I+PSE) Conceptual Framework for Action to healthy eating and physical activity, food security, and sustainable food systems • Describe outcomes and implications from a childhood obesity prevention action planning application of the I+PSE Conceptual Framework for Action • Critique the evaluation strategies used in healthy eating and active living PSE initiatives using a systematic review

Integrating Early Childhood Data. Year Developed: 2017. Source: National Conference of State Legislatures. Presenter(s): Elizabeth Dabney, Carlise King. Type: n.a.. Level: Introductory. Length: 52 minutes.

Annotation: Data from both the early childhood and K–12 sectors can help policymakers inform policy discussions and funding decisions; chart the progress of children, programs, and the state; strengthen and support the early childhood workforce; and pinpoint best practices and areas of need. Linking limited, but critical, early childhood and K–12 data can help states know whether policies and programs successfully transition children from early childhood to the classroom and get them ready for school. During the webinar hear from the Early Childhood Data Collaborative and Data Quality Campaign about how state legislators and policymakers can support the linkage and use of early childhood and K-12 data to inform policy and improve child outcomes.

Evidence Insight Video Series. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Mathematica Policy Research. Presenter(s): Ann Person, Phil Killewald, Alex Resch, Mariel Finucane, Lauren Vollmer. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 5 videos, self paced.

Annotation: In a world where data are proliferating as never before, more policymakers are relying on research evidence to serve the public good. What are the research methods that offer the most useful data to policymakers in this rapidly changing landscape? Find out in #EvidenceInsight, a new video series from Mathematica Policy Research. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are considered the gold standard of rigorous research design. For decades, Mathematica researchers have designed, executed, and replicated large-scale RCTs in many different policy and program areas. Today, greater availability of high quality administrative data—along with an abundance of emerging technologies—have increased demand for faster program evaluation with equally robust results. This demand, coupled with shrinking resources, has motivated researchers to consider new methods that are more efficient and less expensive than RCTs, but just as reliable. This video series is designed to help policymakers who need access to strong evidence. After a brief video describing the series, additional videos address these topics: Bayesian Methods: A Faster, Probabilistic Approach to Research Design. Adaptive Randomization: A Fresh Perspective on Traditional Research Design. Rapid-Cycle Evaluation: Determining What Works in Less Time. Predictive Analytics: Transforming Decision Making in Three Steps.
