Using Critical Thinking to Advance MCH through Evidence. Year Developed: 2021. Source: National MCH Workforce Development Center. Presenter(s): John Richards. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 63 minutes.
Annotation: n this series of learning modules developed in collaboration with the MCH Navigator, we will discuss how the MCH Leadership Competencies — specifically those related to critical thinking (population data, critical analysis, research, epidemiology, and application of evidence-based practice guidelines) — form a supporting structure to: (1) understand the evidence base; (2) develop a plan to move from an analysis of populations needs to evidence-based/informed action steps to address those needs; and (3) use trusted tools to advance health equity within the framework of social determinants of health.
Learning Objectives: • Consider the role of a leader in identifying an issue or problem, framing it as a specific question, considering it from multiple perspectives, evaluating relevant information, and developing a reasoned resolution • Explain the process by which critical thinking informs and aids in addressing a clinical, organizational, community-based, or research challenge • Discuss how evidence-based decision making and implementation science are critical thinking skills

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: Intermediate Advanced. 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.

The Potentially Transformative Effect of Measuring the Health of a Community (Research to Reality). Year Developed: 2012. Source: National Cancer Institute, Office of Communications and Education. Presenter(s): Kurt Stange, MD, PhD; Terry Allan, MPH; Paul Jarris, MD, MBA. Type: Webinar. Level: Advanced. Length: 60 minutes.
Annotation: This online seminar explains how the functional health, and the social, environmental, behavioral and health care determinants of a community can be measured and reported, thus engaging and empowering multiple stakeholders – both individual and groups – to take responsibility for working together to improve health, its determinants and equity. It explores tools and resources, such as the County Health Rankings, to measure the health of a community and ways that have the potential to stimulate multistakeholder engagement, and to serve as a focus for ongoing efforts to improve community health and health equity. Dr. Kurt Stange highlights models of how measuring the health of a community and how this knowledge, generated and followed over time, can empower multi-stakeholder groups to take responsibility for working together to improve health, its determinants, and equity. Terry Allen and Paul Jarris join the seminar to share their experiences in working across sectors to measuring community health at the local and national levels, and will engage participants in sharing their experiences and lessons learned, and thoughts on how other communities can use this approach to improve health and equity.
Learning Objectives: • Identify the opportunities for measuring community health and models to do so at both the local and national level. • Discuss how measuring the health of a community, and the knowledge generated, can help to empower multi-stakeholder groups to work together. • Share their experiences in measuring community health and engaging multi-stakeholders.
