The second round of reporting on units’ implementation of the 2016 Accreditation Criteria closed on Wednesday, January 9. CEPH staff are busily processing all of the submissions, but we wanted to share some early observations.
Turnout was impressive! Nearly 25% of units submitted before the deadline, and we heard from everyone on or before the due date. The staff and Council are extremely appreciative—this is a credit to our field!
With about 35% of precincts reporting, it is too early to make data generalizations, but staff are tracking the results and are eager to share them!
Staff are tracking data across both years of compliance reporting to see which knowledge areas and competencies are proving the most challenging, and some clear trends stand out already.
We’re also tracking some trends in curricula.
We’re all too familiar with the perils of committing to early projections, but we hope that these initial impressions might be interesting.
Join us on Thursday, April 4 for a more full report on trends from the compliance reports after all of the results are tabulated. The presentation and information will be live on the CEPH website after that date. We look forward to ongoing discussion about the public health curricula of the 21st century!
