Consultation Services

As a service to local and state health departments and community health coalitions and organizations, IPHI’s Center for Community Capacity Development (CCCD) offers consultation on community health assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation activities. Consultation services are delivered in a variety of ways depending on the results of the needs assessment, the time-line and the most effective delivery mode to build capacity. Services include the following and may be a combination of methods:

  • Conference calls
  • On-site consultation
  • Electronic review and feedback
  • Training sessions
  • Observation and coaching
  • Direct service (such as meeting facilitation)

Through the IPLAN Training and TA grant from IDPH, Local Health Departments may request a limited amount of free consultation and technical assistance.
