Tools & Templates: Informing Local Governing Entities about Public Health and Accreditation

Description:

These training materials are intended for LHOs to inform their local governing entities (LGEs) on the basics of public health, the importance of accreditation, and the role that LGEs play in the accreditation process. Often, LGEs have limited knowledge of public health and/or accreditation, making it essential for LHOs to proactively provide the necessary information. These materials include:

  • Public Health 101 PowerPoint Presentation - covering the basics of public health, these slides contain talking points and instructions on how to tailor the presentation to each LHD
  • Accreditation PowerPoint Presentation - covering the importance of accreditation and the LGEs' role in the process, these slides contain talking points and instructions on how to tailor the presentation to each LHD
  • Presenter's Guide - designed to accompany the PowerPoints, this guide provides slide-by-slide instructions and talking points, along with tips to prepare
  • Public Health & Accreditation Factsheet - this one-page handout provides basic facts regarding public health and accreditation
