A Network Leadership Approach to Program Development and Evaluation: The Regional Health Connector Program in Colorado
October 19, 1-2pm Mountain Time- click here to register
Join this webinar to learn about using a network approach for fostering leaders, program and workforce development, and evaluation within the community, organizational, and regional levels of a network. As part of two ongoing grants, the state of Colorado is implementing a Regional Health Connector (RHC) Program with the stated mission of utilizing "community and practice engagement to cultivate partnerships by bridging resources and systems to build healthier communities and healthier practices." RHCs are hosted by a local organization or collaboration with existing regional relationships and a history of community-based work. These locally driven RHCs build, strengthen, and coordinate clinical-community networks in 21 regions throughout Colorado. Presenters: Paige Backlund Jarquin, Colorado Health Institute and Matthew Simpson, Colorado Research Network (CaReNet) & Department of Family Medicine-University of Colorado School of Medicine
Network Knowledge Mapping: Mapping the Known, Discovering the Unknown
November 9, 12-1pm Mountain Time- click here to register
Networked organizations have tremendous potential for tackling complex problems and achieving ambitious goals. They also face great difficulties in coordinating their efforts and providing evidence to show their shared success. Creating a “knowledge map” can help you make the case for your important work. Knowledge mapping also supports effective collaboration, communication, and planning. In this interactive webinar, you’ll learn the basics of this scientifically rigorous, democratic technique:
· How to map the evidence from people’s experience (interview and collaborative mapping approaches)
· How to map the evidence from research studies and other supporting materials
· How to create an integrated map to show the evidence from experience and research, bridging the gap between academia and practice
Presenters: Steven E. Wallis and Bernadette Wright, Meaningful Evidence, LLC
