Together, partners will take their understanding of social determinants of health to the next level as they identify actionable steps that impact the root causes of poor health outcomes in their communities.
In order to register for this training, you will need a partner(s) to take this course. Teams can be either 2 or 3 people. Once a partnership has been established and agreed upon, as a TEAM you will submit ONE application. Do not submit an application for each team member. The responses to this application should reflect thoughts and experiences of your team. Once an application has been submitted for your team, you will not be able to go back and view it. You may make changes to an application that is in progress anytime before you submit it.
Review and download the application questions HERE if you'd like to work on your application offline. When you are ready to submit your application, please click on the course application link at the bottom to submit it.
Please note that once you begin the application, you will be able to return to where you left off only if you are using the same device and have not reset your internet browser.
No cost for registrants from our region (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming), $160 for registrants from all other states, no cost for registering for the waitlist - payment arrangement will be made by staff if spot becomes available.
We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.
Each session will include a facilitated discussion among class participants related to that week’s topic. The course facilitator as well as guest panelists will lead the discussion, engage participants, and answer questions. Below is the schedule for our live sessions.
6 Live Learning Sessions:
Successful completion of this course requires your participation in these sessions by video using a webcam or built-in camera on your device. Contact us if you need assistance accessing a webcam.
Each week, you must complete assigned online learning activities that include reading and watching videos. There will also be a short assignment in preparation for each live learning session that should take about an hour to complete.
Look for an email from us 2 weeks before your first live session with instructions on how to access the course online. If you don’t see an email (don’t forget to check your spam folder), email firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you sign in prior to your first live session to complete the required activities and ensure you know how to connect with your camera.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
Know the Information: Identify upstream determinants impacting specific health outcomes and shared risk factors across multiple health outcomes.
Identify a Measurable Focus: Determine particular upstream factors you want to target; identify strategies to impact upstream determinants; and describe metrics used to measure change.
Support Funding: Identify and implement collective funding approaches to support innovative efforts in this area. Communicate and work with partners to identify common goals.
Put to Practice: Assess organizational readiness or barriers to authentically engage the community in a shared risk approach.
Action Plan: Identify actionable steps to impact the root causes resulting in poor health outcomes in your community.
