New Resource for Communicating about Public Health Policies


NWCPHP announces the release of a new resource to help public health professionals craft concise, well-informed arguments that communicate the importance of policy issues and options to elected officials and other decision-makers for improving health.

The self-paced course, Policy Briefs: From Concept to Action, is a step-by-step guide for helping you organize your thinking, strategize and communicate about action items, and propose changes in policies that affect your community.
This interactive course demystifies the structure of a good policy brief and walks learners through its key elements of defining the issue, developing recommendations, and refining an analysis. There is also a case example of developing an organizational policy to illustrate the process.

This content was developed by former NWCPHP Director, Susan Allan, who has more than twenty years of experience in state and local public health leadership, and has worked to shape health policy at the national level.
If done well, policy briefs can be extremely effective in synthesizing complex information and persuading people to act. Review Policy Briefs: From Concept to Action and get started on your policy issue today.

This free course takes one hour to complete and can be accessed through PH LearnLink.
