Join ISDS for a presentation on public health quality measures in the context of surveillance activities by Peggy Honoré from the US Department of Health and Human Services. Quality in healthcare and public health must serve as a catalyst for improving the health of the nation. While organized efforts to address healthcare quality have advanced rigorously in recent years, progress in public health quality is beginning to emerge as well. Contributing to this effort is a framework for public health quality released by the US Department of Health and Human Services. This presentation will discuss the movement to improve quality and introduce the nine aims for quality improvement documented in the report Priority Areas for Improvement of Quality in Public Health.
One Certified in Public Health (CPH) recertification credit will be available for attending this webinar and completing a short post-presentation evaluation.
