You’re Invited: Nebraska State Health Assessment and State Health Improvement Plan Webinars

Webinar

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health, Office of Community Health and Performance Management will be hosting four informational webinars on the next four Fridays. The webinars will highlight the state assessment and improvement planning processes, including the findings from our State Health Assessment and the selected priorities for Nebraska’s State Health Improvement Plan.

Starting in 2015, the Office of Community Health and Performance Management coordinated a state health assessment using the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships process (MAPP). Four assessments were completed including 1) the State Public Health System Assessment, 2) the Forces of Change assessment, 3) the Health Status Assessment, and 4) the Community Themes and Strengths Assessment. The qualitative and quantitative results from the SHA serve as the foundation for setting priorities for the state health improvement plan. The State Health Assessment webinar will highlight the assessment process and review the key findings. Download a copy of the The State Health Assessment at this link.

Last year, the Office of Community Health and Performance Management and four co-launch partners (the Public Health Association of Nebraska, UNMC College of Public Health, Nebraska Hospital Association and Nebraska Association Local Health Directors) convened public health stakeholders for a series of state health improvement planning meetings. Five statewide priorities were identified based on the results from the State Health Assessment. The two SHIP webinars will detail the priority selection process and outline the five chosen priorities.
