Through workshops, blog posts, and other discussions, professionals working in healthcare and public health have helped to create a draft set of Priority Competencies for Population Health Professionals. These competencies identify desired skills for population health professionals and will be used to develop training and other professional development opportunities for individuals engaged in activities such as community health needs assessments, community health improvement plans, implementation of community-based interventions, and coalition building. These competencies are primarily designed for non-clinical hospital, health system, public health, and healthcare professionals engaged in assessment of population health needs and development, delivery, and improvement of population health programs, services, and practices. This draft set of competencies is based on the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals, a consensus set of foundational skills for individuals working in public health.

The Public Health Foundation is seeking your feedback on the draft Priority Competencies for Population Health Professionals. Please help us and your colleagues by taking 15 minutes to complete this feedback form.
