MHCH 890: Applied Methods for Health Transformation Implementation in MCH

Are you ready to contribute to state and national health reform implementation? Would you like to optimize your implementation skills and leadership capacity? Explore the art and science of health transformation in MCH through a new online course for students in any of the MCHB-funded MCH Training Programs.

This course is designed to integrate the theory, research literature, and evidence-supported practices that promote optimal population health outcomes in maternal and child health. The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010 - the most significant health care system reform since the passage of Medicaid and Medicare in the 1960s - offers opportunities for improving public health systems, health care financing and delivery, and ultimately, health outcomes for MCH populations. Title V professionals need contemporary tools, resources, and skills in order to assume leadership in ACA and health reform implementation. Through this online course, students will gain essential competencies for quality improvement, systems thinking, population change management, and promotion of access to care for women, children and families.
