The MICH Accreditation Standards are made up of 7 sections. The following resources were gathered with the help of our public health partners to assist LPHAs as they go through the accreditation process.
With funding from the County Health Rankings Project, MICH has developed a resource page that provides links to state and national databases and toolkits for health, social and economic factors such as education, employment, and community safety. This provides a one-stop-shop for community health assessment and planning.
The American Public Health Association provided funding with assistance from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to the Missouri Public Health Association and the Missouri Institute for Community Health to develop a quality improvement resource page. Here in one location you are able to access sample quality improvement plans, QI tools, project storyboards, and QI webinars.
The Missouri Public Health Association (MPHA) and MICH have worked together to provide resources for developing your workforce through core competency training and education, sample workforce development plans, along with resources and tools for establishing relationships with schools of public health and related academic programs that promote the development of future public health workers
