Center Overview: Major transformations in the public health, health care and health financing sectors offer opportunities to improve public health systems, state/territory and community health care delivery, and ultimately, key health outcomes for MCH populations. Title V programs are uniquely positioned to help lead and influence major health system reform initiatives as they affect children, youth, women and families.
The National MCH Workforce Development Center at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in cooperation with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), and in partnership with AMCHP and national experts in MCH innovation and quality improvement, will offer state and territorial Title V leaders training, collaborative learning opportunities and technical assistance in implementing health care reform using a variety of learning platforms. In the current dynamic context, tools and resources to strengthen MCH capacity and skills in 4 core areas will be available through the National Center to move from evidence to action.
(1) Improving access to care,
(2) Using quality improvement tools to drive transformation,
(3) Fostering integration and harmonization within public health and across organizational boundaries and sectors including primary care, mental health, early intervention and community-based service delivery and financing systems,
(4) Furthering effective change management, collective action and individual leadership skills that will lead to health improvement for MCH populations.
