Conducting a Public Health Accreditation Self-Assessment: Who, What, Why and How

Prior to committing to public health accreditation, or for those who are simply interested in exploring what public health accreditation entails, Tribal public health entities may consider conducting a self-assessment. A public health accreditation self-assessment can be a powerful tool for highlighting strengths in the public health system, as well as identifying gaps and areas for improvement. Many Tribes have found this process extremely valuable and have used it to guide efforts toward improving their public health systems, regardless of whether or not their goal is public health accreditation. Hosted by NIHB, join us as three Tribal public health officials share information about their self-assessment experience including:

  • Why they chose to conduct a self-assessment
  • What they learned about their organization from the process
  • Who was involved, and
  • How they are using the results

Date and Time:
Tuesday, July 9, 2019 from 2-3 PM ET
(Event begins at 1pm CT, 12pm MT, 11 am PT, and 10 am AK time)
Cristina Toledo-Cornell, MD Public Health Director, Lummi Nation Tribal Health Center

Improving Data Access and Use Between Tribes, Tribal Epidemiology Centers, and States

This webinar is for Tribes, Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TEC), and Tribal serving organizations to learn more about data access and the data use agreement (DUA)/memorandum of understanding (MOU) process. Attendees may also invite a colleague from the state Department of Health to attend the webinar. In this webinar subject matter experts (SMEs) from the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board, Oregon Office of Health Affairs, and the National Health Law Program/ChangeLab will provide an overview on drafting DUAs/MOUs and how TECs could work with tribes and states to get access to public health data. Participants learn more about some successful DSAs with TECs and Tribes and what TECs should consider when writing DSAs (e.g., protections for Tribes, small numbers policies, etc.). In addition SMEs will provide an overview of MOU Best Practices and share details on what states need to know when working with TECs and Tribes on writing and successfully completing agreements and MOUs provide. There will also be time for questions and answers at the end of the presentations.
