 About Us

Major transformations in the health care and health financing sectors offer opportunities to improve public health systems, state and community health care delivery, and ultimately, key health outcomes for MCH populations. Title V programs are uniquely positioned to help lead and influence major health system reform initiatives as they affect women, children and families.

The National MCH Workforce Development Center at UNC Chapel Hill, in cooperation with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), and in partnership with the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and national experts in MCH innovation and quality improvement, will offer state and territorial Title V leaders training, collaborative learning, coaching and consultation in implementing health reform using a variety of learning platforms. In the current dynamic context, tools and resources to strengthen MCH capacity and skills in the following four core areas will be available through the National Center to move from evidence to action:

  •  Improving access to care
  •  Using quality improvement tools to drive transformation
  •  Fostering integration within public health and across sectors including primary care, mental
     health, early intervention and community-based service delivery and financing systems
  •  Furthering change management, including effective collective action skills that will lead health
     improvement for MCH populations

 Request Technical Assistance

National MCH Workforce Development Center releases Request for Participation: The National MCH Workforce Development Center at UNC Chapel Hill, in cooperation with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, and in partnership with AMCHP and national experts in MCH innovation and quality improvement, will offer state and territorial Title V leaders training, collaborative learning opportunities, and technical assistance in implementing health care reform using a variety of learning platforms. In the current dynamic context, tools and resources to strengthen MCH capacity and skills in 4 core areas will be available through the National Center to move from evidence to action.

 

(1)    Improving access to care,

(2)    Using quality improvement tools to drive transformation,

(3)    Fostering integration and harmonization within public health and across organizational boundaries and sectors including primary care, mental health, early intervention and community-based service delivery and financing systems,

(4)    Furthering effective change management, collective action and individual leadership skills that will lead to health improvement for MCH populations.

 

The Center will address the four areas above by providing three levels of training and technical assistance: 1) universal training for all Title V staff and MCH trainees related to the 4 core areas; 2) targeted training and technical assistance for self-selected Title V staff and partners; and 3) intensive training and technical assistance for an annual cohort of states/territories. 

 

The Center is releasing a Request for Participation (RFP) for states that wish to participate in the intensive training and technical assistance described above. With this RFP, the Center is aiming to engage 8-10 states and territories where Center support may create new opportunities for Title V involvement in health reform, expand and scale successful multi-agency partnerships, and supplement ongoing or planned work. Participation in the intensive training and technical assistance should complement existing or planned activities rather than create an entirely new project. Costs related to travel and training will be covered by the Center; state teams need only plan for an investment of staff time as these intensive collaborative partnerships will last approximately six to 18 months. The Deadline for the RFP is now closed please check back in Fall of 2014.  Below you can find resources from the last RFP.
