Needs Assessments

OPHP provides consultations to governmental and other public health agencies on conducting training needs assessments of staff and developing workforce development plans. Methodologies include surveys, focus groups and group prioritization exercises. OPHP can provide consultation on creating agency workforce development plans to meet PHAB standards and on identifying or creating training programs to meet gaps.
