The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors Health Equity Council (NACDD-HEC) designed a survey instrument to determine what skills public health staff need to advance health equity. The survey was based on public health competencies and guided by suggestions from national health equity experts. Based on the results of the survey the NACDD-HE identified areas most in need of training and made recommendations for creating a series of skill building opportunities in the following areas:

  • Communications
  • Cultural competency
  • Program planning and development
  • Analytic assessment
  • Community Practice
  • Leadership and Systems

When to Use

The recommendations may be useful in developing an overall workforce development plan, training plan and/or individual development plans to prepare staff for advancing health equity initiatives.

Things to Consider

The self-assessment survey is not a part of the report.
