Orientation to Public Health Online Course

"Orientation to Public Health" from PHTC-Online

...is a web-based course that provides learners with a basic understanding of public health's mission and functions. Designed to orient newly hired support and technical staff to the field, the course consists of two parts:
  • Part One introduces the mission and six obligations of public health.
  • Part Two explains the ten essential services.

The course uses the metaphor of a new worker orientation (computer-based) to present information. By reading e-mails, completing assigned tasks, and participating in simulated desktop conferences, the learner discovers that public health is very much a part of everyday life, and learns how many different agencies work to carry out its mission.

Newly registered learners login to find a virtual “desktop” they will use to navigate through the course. Sections called “Inbox,” “Documents,” “Tasks,” and “Conferencing” provide access to content. Course components are generated dynamically in response to the learner’s progress.

As each new area is explored and tasks completed, more material is added. Once learners have entered the course, a “task list” appears on their desktop. This serves as a progress indicator, helping those who logout and later return to remember where they have been, and reminding them of work they still need to complete. Learners have 30 days within which to complete the course. After their access expires, learners must re-register and begin again.

As learners work through their assigned tasks, feedback alerts them to how well they have understood the material presented. Upon finishing the course, they may print out a certificate of completion.

"Orientation to Public Health" is unique in its approach to web-based content delivery. Please let us know what you think by filling out the evaluation form at the end of the course. We look forward to your comments and suggestions for enhancements.

Performance Management Series

Performance Management (PM) Series*

As part of the National Public Health Improvement Initiative funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Department of Health Office of Public Health Practice, Performance Management Group has collaborated with the Empire State Public Health Training Center (ESPHTC) to develop the Performance Management Series.

These quick-learns can be utilized as stand-alone QI training tools or to complement instructor led training modules as part of a blended learning approach.

 

The tutorials and quick-learns are free, self-paced and open to the public. Currently, continuing education credits are not being offered for the series. Check back regularly as the content of this Performance Management Series is ever expanding.

It is recommended that the tutorials and quick-learns be completed in the following order:

  1. PMG-110 Performance Measurement
  2. PMG-120 Quality Improvement (QI) Team Development
  3. PMG-130 Targeting Improvement with AIM Statements

Who should register?

The Performance Management Series was created primarily for public health employees in local health departments and the NYS Department of Health, however they may be beneficial to any practitioners in public health and healthcare related fields. The quick learns and tutorials within the Performance Management Series are free and open to the public.
