Special Journal Issue Highlights Quality Improvement (QI) in Public Health

Newest Issue of Journal of Public Health Management Practice (JPHMP) Addresses Public Health Accreditation, Trajectory of QI, and Future Vision for the Field

As public health departments across the country begin to prepare for the launch of the national accreditation program in 2011, the January/February 2010 issue of the JPHMP provides a valuable resource for the public health community to learn more about how quality improvement efforts can enhance public health services and better promote, preserve and protect the health of the public.

The issue, now fully accessible at, contains contributions from public health leaders and practitioners at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO), National Association of Local Boards of Health, National Network of Public Health Institutes, Public Health Accreditation Board, Public Health Foundation and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Articles showcase a range of current efforts to advance the quality and performance of public health services. The issue also highlights the innovative work of local and state health departments engaged in the RWJF-funded Multi-State Learning Collaborative project (which is currently in its third phase) and NACCHO’s Accreditation Preparation and Quality Improvement Demonstration Sites project.

Learn more about the special issue and the Foundation’s investments in QI in public health.
