    The Iowa Public Health Gaining Ground Coalition invites Iowa local public health departments (limit 2 attendees per agency) to attend this full-day workshop.

    The goal of this interactive workshop is to give local Iowa public health departments practice working with a performance management (PM) system model, so they can start to develop or improve and organization-wide PM system in their agency.  

    In accordance with the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) Standards & Measures, this workshop will review the standards, provide attendees with an agency PM self-assessment, and include instruction for designing measures and a PM system.  While participants won’t leave with a completed PM plan, they will leave with new skills and tools to complete that work.  The primary objectives are to meet agencies where they are by:

    1. Demystifying PM basic requirements and their alignment with other plans;
    2. Practicing developing components of a PM system; and
    3. Designing plans for action for the PM team and communication with the whole agency.
    Registration code is available from your IDPH Regional Community Health Consultant (sent via email).
