Public health professionals need concrete, actionable tools for aligning and engaging stakeholders to achieve high-impact action with the whole system in mind. Systems Practice provides a method to “gain clarity” on the system; pushing beyond the immediate problems to understand, and map, the patterns and relationships that enable, or inhibit, our vision for a healthy system. With this deep and comprehensive understanding of context, we are then able to identify key areas of leverage within the system, and the opportunities to monitor, learn, and adapt along the way.
This course is designed to facilitate learning through relevant, hands-on application of the tools, processes and mindsets essential for adopting systems thinking in public health.
