Description

The complex techniques and myriad of options that arise in designing and administering quality surveys can be daunting to a layperson. The advancement of survey instruments, such as web-based tools, has helped ease the burden of administration, but skill is still needed to choose questions and design a good survey. With the increasing reliance on assessment and program evaluation, it is particularly important for laypersons to know how to design and administer surveys that demonstrate program impact, measure intervention effectiveness, uncover community needs, and create baseline measures for program improvement.

This training serves to provide knowledge and skills to a non-scientific audience about survey development and administration. The training will begin with an overview of various types of surveys to familiarize participants with the basics of survey research. Participants will be exposed to the mechanics of developing a survey. This will include ways to find an appropriate sample, testing the survey, and assuring the survey is culturally appropriate. Participants will then dive into the development of survey questions to gather appropriate data for its intended purpose. The trainer will use the survey types available in Survey Monkey, a free web-based, online survey tool, to help participants understand the application and utility of each question. Participants will also learn about the utility of each question in the context of data collection, analysis, and reporting. After the web-based training, the trainer will be available to answer questions and help participants think through ways to apply survey research to their work.

 

Objectives

Participants in this web-conference will be able to:

1. Understand the basic components of developing a survey
2. Learn how to test a survey for cultural appropriateness
3. Assess the use of survey questions for gathering appropriate data
4. Explore the importance of collection, analysis, and reporting survey results
5. Apply the use of an online, web-based survey tool

 

Target Audience

This training is designed as a basic introduction to survey development for those who are not research scientists but use research techniques such as surveying. IPLAN coordinators, administrators, health educators, nurses, preventionists and health promoters are encouraged to participate.

Description

Public health is, by its very nature, community-driven.  Even the best media campaigns and evidence-based practices will fail in the absence of community stakeholder support.  We have learned and embraced the importance of engaging stakeholders and partners in our work.   Despite this knowledge, we sometimes fall short of making the most of those key partnerships.  Whether you are trying to move from “warm bodies at the table” and verbal commitments of support to meaningful engagement and agreement or even meaningful engagement to action and accountability, this session will help you assess the effectiveness of your coalitions and committees and develop a plan to move forward.

In this session, you will learn how to identify opportunities to improve relationships with key stakeholder and identify common barriers for stakeholder engagement.  We will focus on reinvigorating your coalitions and committees for improved assessment and planning, motivating key stakeholders to take a more proactive approach to creating healthy communities, and developing strategies for motivating partners to move beyond participation to acceptance of ownership and accountability for addressing and impacting community health priorities. Resources and tools will be provided as well as an opportunity to participate in a question and answer call with your peers and the presenter.

 

Objectives

Participants in this web-conference will be able to:

1. Assess the effectiveness of community stakeholder coalitions and committees;
2. Identify opportunities to improve relationships with key stakeholders;
3. Overcome common barriers to meaningful stakeholder engagement
4. Increase  stakeholder ownership of and accountability for community health priorities; and
5. Implement strategies to renew community engagement in public health assessment and planning.

 

Target Audience

IPLAN coordinators, administrators, health educators, nurses, preventionists and health promoters are encouraged to participate.

Description

Illinois, like many states in this country, is experiencing an obesity epidemic. 62% of adults in Illinois are either overweight or obese. Poor nutrition and physical activity habits are leading to this increase and contributing to Illinois rates of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, hypertension, and stroke. There has been an increase in the amount of children affected by the obesity epidemic, with 31% of all Illinois children 10-17 years of age either overweight or obese. An alarming 56% of publicly insured children in Illinois are overweight or obese, the highest state prevalence in the nation. Obesity has become a major priority in the Illinois State Health Improvement Plan and a call to action has been started by the Illinois Obesity Prevention Initiative Act (HB 3767). It is apparent that Illinois is in need of new tools and strategies to address the obesity problem.

Individual communities have unique needs related to preventing and reducing obesity. To understand those specific needs and develop interventions to address those needs, communities need to engage in a comprehensive assessment and develop a targeted community plan. To support such assessment and planning, the Framework for Creating a Community Plan to Target Obesity was developed. This template can be used by community stakeholders to guide the process. This Webinar will provide an introduction to the scope and reality of obesity in Illinois and the social ecological model as the basis for targeting the issue. We’ll explore the development of a community stakeholder team to conduct the assessment and plan and the data and information needed to conduct the assessment. We will describe the other components of the Framework and share resources to learn more.

 

Objectives

Participants will:

1. Describe various obesity plans, initiatives and resources within Illinois
2. Identify data for assessing a local community’s obesity problem
3. Describe the Social Ecological Model and how to apply it when developing a local obesity plan
4. Identify where to find evidence-based programs and interventions for obesity prevention and reduction
5. Understand the importance of monitoring and evaluating obesity prevention initiatives

 

Target Audience

IPLAN coordinators, administrators, health educators, nurses, preventionists and health promoters are encouraged to participate.

Enhancing Physical Education in Illinois

Illinois has been a leader in valuing children’s health, long requiring daily P.E. for students in grades K-12Many schools have designed or adopted model programs to meet this requirement and create opportunities for physical activity.

There is a significant body of research showing that children who are more physically active perform better in class and on standardized tests and have improved on-task behavior in class. With one in three Illinois children overweight or obese and at increased risk for chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, improving opportunities for physical activity is imperative for improving our children’s academic achievement and their health.

Note: The Illinois Public Health Institute has a professional development program for P.E. teachers, Pump Up P.E.: Promote Health, Learning & Lifelong Fitness, on enhanced P.E. and implementing the recent P.E. developments described below. Visit the Pump Up P.E. page for information on the program, a list of upcoming professional development events and details on personalized technical assistance packages for teachers, schools and districts.

Enhanced P.E., defined as “programs that increase the length of, or activity levels in, school-based physical education classes,” is considered an evidence-based intervention for improving physical activity by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Strategic_PlanCombined with the neuroscience research showing that physical fitness and physical activity are linked to improved academic achievement and improved behavior, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Illinois Public Health Institute led efforts to produce an Enhanced P.E. Strategic Plan, with input from a voluntary Enhanced P.E. Task Force in 2012.

TFAs the voluntary Enhanced P.E. Task Force finalized the strategic plan, Public Act 97-1102 established the Illinois Enhance P.E. Task Force to promote and recommend enhanced physical education programs that could be integrated with broader wellness strategies and health curriculum in elementary and secondary schools. The Illinois Public Health Institute was represented on the task force and provided staff support.

TF_reportIn its final report, the Enhance P.E. Task Force proposed revised learning standards for physical development and health, which were adopted by the State Board of Education in January 2013 and will be implemented in the 2015-16 school year.

The revisions helped move P.E. in Illinois to an enhanced P.E. model, focusing on health and fitness, cooperation, and the building of life-long skills instead of sports and competition. The revised standards integrated findings from the neuroscience research and are aimed at helping students understand the influence of fitness and physical activity on health, academic achievement and behavior. The Task Force also made several recommendations for promoting enhanced P.E. in Illinois.

One of the recommendations was to develop and utilize metrics to assess the impact of enhanced P.E., and the report included a recommendation that schools adopt the Presidential Youth Fitness Program and its Fitnessgram measurement program. The recommendation led to continued discussions by legislators and P.E. advocates across the state – with the Illinois Public Health Institute (IPHI) and the Illinois Alliance to Prevent Obesity (which is administered by IPHI) at the forefront of the effort – and Public Act 98-0859 was enacted to implement fitness testing in Illinois in the 2016-17 school year.

Public Act 098-0859 also established a 15-member Stakeholder and Expert Task Force on Physical Education (P.E.) composed of members representing organizations that represent physical education teachers, school officials, principals, health promotion and disease prevention advocates and experts, school health advocates and experts, and other experts with operational and academic expertise in the measurement of fitness. The Illinois Public Health Institute was represented on the Task Force and provided staff support.

StakeThis Task Force was charged with determining the components of fitness that will be assessed and the operational details around implementation, data collection and reporting. The Task Force submitted its final recommendations and report to ISBE on April 1, 2015, and after seeking public comment, ISBE adopted rules based on these recommendations.  These rules went into effect January 27th and were released on February 16th in the Illinois Register (Part 1, Section 1.425, pages 2991 and 3013-3016). Fitness testing will be required beginning in the 2016-17 school year and every year thereafter.

Enhanced P.E. Resources

Training: Pump Up P.E.: Promote Health, Learning & Lifelong Fitness

Through the Healthy Hotspot initiative, led by the Cook County Department of Public Health, IPHI developed Pump Up P.E.: Promote Health, Learning & Lifelong Fitness, a one-day, interactive training to provide physical educators on practical, immediately-applicable strategies to increase physical activity levels in school-based P.E. classes, implement the revised State Learning Standards and administer the fitness tests that will be required in the 2016-17 school year. Over 400 physical educators came though the program in the 2015-16 school year and more trainings will be held in the 2016-17 school year. Learn more and sign up for training schedule updates here.
