Leveraging Learning to Leadership

July 2016
We are happy to share that the MCH Navigator has been funded for another 5 years at Georgetown University's National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health (NCEMCH). Look forward to new initiatives, including a new website; the establishment of the 5-Minute MCH program as an enduring training resource; a new series of microlearning projects; and an added focus on health transformation (in collaboration with the National MCH Workforce Development Center and AMCHP).

These vetted learning opportunities address the MCH Leadership Competencies.

These resources have been gathered in NCEMCH's Knowledge Base:

What's New at NCEMCH

New Digital Resource. With support from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine NCEMCH has digitized materials in the EPSDT Hiscock Collection, making them widely available through an online portal, and has incorporated the electronic holdings into the MCH Knowledge Base. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires states to ensure that all Medicaid-eligible children and youth under age 21 receive comprehensive health services, especially early and periodic screening, diagnostic, and treatment (EPSDT) services. This collection traces the development of the EPSDT benefit.

Focus on Health Transformation

Expanded Collaboration. The MCH Navigator is working with the National MCH Workforce Development Center at UNC Chapel Hill, in cooperation with MCHB, and in partnership with AMCHP to create an expanded inventory of online learning opportunities and resources on health transformation with material initially collected from AMCHP's Transformation Station. Stay tuned for more resources available through the MCH Alert and on the MCH Navigator's Health Transformation Portal.
