NACCHO has released the 2015 Forces of Change survey containing new findings on the forces that affect change in our nation's LHDs. Results show that LHD leaders believe that skills embodied in the core competencies are important for their professional public health staff. LHDs leaders rated ensuring that programs are managed within budget constraints and communicating ideas and information in a way that different audiences can understand most highly. On the other hand, influencing policy development was rated as less important. Other results from the survey show that LHDs face challenges and opportunities as the public health and clinical care environments evolve.
