Visit this learning portal for maternal and child health professionals, students, and others working to improve the health and well-being of women, children, and families. The MCH Navigator seeks to enhance access to currently available public health MCH learning resources by “matching” learner needs with learning paths. This initiative is intended to complement, and not be a substitute for, formal institutionally-based undergraduate or graduate education program in maternal and child health.
MCH Navigator Assessment
The Assessment is mapped to the MCH Leadership Competencies. Once trainees have determined the areas in which they need development, they can identify appropriate training opportunities. To help trainees do that, the Navigator has linked the competency items examined in the MCH Leadership Skills Self-Assessment with relevant learning opportunities.
With funding from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the MCH Library at Georgetown University provides access to critical resources for leaders and the workforce in state Title V agencies, communities, health professionals, educators, researchers, policymakers, and families in order to facilitate changing policies and activities. Of particular interest to trainees, a variety of Knowledge Paths have been developed and provide recent, high quality resources and tools to learn more about the topic, conduct further research, locate training resources, develop programs, and stay abreast of new developments.
