Changing the Public Conversation on Health: How to Use Framing to "Decode" Social Determinants and Health Equity. Year Developed: 2018. Source: CityMatCH. Presenter(s): Andy Wessel, MPH. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 80 minutes.

Annotation: Despite the foundational role that health plays in everyone's quality of life, the field of public health is not well understood by the general public and decision-makers. This webinar describes how the Douglas County Health Department in Omaha is applying research from FrameWorks Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to build stronger support for prevention and equity approaches.

Learning Objectives: • Why our messages frequently fail to translate the importance of public health to people outside the field. • How to use well-researched values and explanatory metaphors to "decode" our work on social determinants and health equity. • Why "naked numbers" are problematic and how "social math" can help our audience better understand the significance of data • How these framing practices can be applied to MCH advocacy.

Using Social Determinants of Health to Inform Fatality Review. Year Developed: 2017. Source: National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention. Presenter(s): Madelyn Reyes, MA, MPA, RN, Jola Crear-Perry, MD, FACOG, Susan Hurtado. Type: Webinar. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks. Child Death Review (CDR) and Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) programs work to understand health care systems and social problems that contribute to fetal, infant, and child deaths and to identify and implement systems improvement and interventions to improve the lives of some of our most vulnerable women, infants, children, and families. Keeping a Social Determinants of Health lens while conducting fatality review is a step toward reducing inequities in these vital health outcomes.

Title V Transformation Tools. Year Developed: 2017. Source: MCH Navigator. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Interactive Learning Tool. Level: Intermediate. Length: Self-paced.

Annotation: The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grants to States Program has established 15 National Performance Measures (NPMs) for the 2015-2017 grant cycle. In order to effectively address the NPMs, MCH professionals need to think about not only the evidence and strategies to make change, but also the capacity of the workforce to carry out these activities. Six skill sets have been identified by the National MCH Workforce Development Center to support overall implementation of the Title V NPMs: (1) advancing equity; (2) analytical and assessment skills; (3) building and sustaining partnerships; (4) financial and management skills; (5) implementation; and (6) leadership and systems thinking skills. The MCH Navigator in collaboration with the Center has developed this crosswalk to guide MCH professionals to online learning opportunities and implementation resources to support these skill sets.

Learning Objectives: Review of each NPM across the six skills sets: •Well-Woman Visit (NPM 1) •Low-Risk Cesarean Deliveries (NPM 2) •Perinatal Regionalization (NPM 3) •Breastfeeding (NPM 4) •Safe Sleep (NPM 5) • Developmental Screening (NPM 6) •Child Safety/Injury (NPM 7) •Physical Activity (NPM 8) •Bullying (NPM 9) •Adolescent Wll-Visit (NPM 10) •Medical Home (NPM 11) •Transition (NPM 12) •Oral Health (NPM 13) •Smoking (NPM 14) •Adequate Insurance Coverage (NPM 15)
