NCCHPP Webinar – Public Policy Competencies for Public Health
This webinar will begin to answer the question: What do public health actors need to know about public policy? We will report on the findings from a scoping review with analysis of the literature on competencies for healthy public policy. We will explore the trends and tendencies over the past 15 years or so related to what public health schools, organizations, and authorities have done and are doing with regard to developing competency frameworks as one tool for increasing their ability to intervene in public policy.
We will describe the seven main areas of competency found in the literature: policy analysis and development; influence and advocacy; partnership and collaboration; communication; policy context; social determinants of health and equity; and policy theory. In addition to this, we will discuss leadership as a cross-cutting competency.
Participants will come away from the webinar with a sense of the main competencies in public policy required by public health organizations and a sense of how this work might be institutionally anchored.
