Meeting the Learning Challenge

Health improvement requires continuous learning for effective strategy and practice.  The challenge lies in helping people develop the knowledge and skills they need to directly address the strategic and operational challenges facing the organization.  At Community Health Solutions we provide custom learning supports for organizations, communities, associations, and professional institutes.  We custom design and deliver these supports  in close consultation with the sponsors and participants.

Strategic learning is focused on developing knowledge and insight to optimize strategy.  A starting point for strategic learning is to ensure that all staff and board members understand the strategic aims and actions of the organization. Additional applications may include learning for strategic planning, strategic opportunity analysis, program development, and leadership development. Strategic learning supports may include online content as well seminars, webinars, workshops, executive team meetings, and board learning events. Community Health Solutions can assist with all aspects of program design, development, and implementation for strategic learning.

Action Learning is focused on helping teams solve defined operational challenges.  Action Learning projects begin with a team and a defined challenge. The team engages in a collaborative process to solve the challenge while also learning and growing as individuals and as a unit. The result is better performance and a stronger organization. Community Health Solutions supports Team Action Learning projects by assisting with project design, meeting facilitation, research, data, analytics, tools, and learning support.

Association learning & development programs are designed to help member organizations develop specific capabilities in leadership, strategy and practice. In a typical program, the member organizations work together to define their learning objectives, share learning supports, and put learning into action.  Depending on the objectives, the program may emphasize strategic learning, action learning, or both.   Community Health Solutions can assist with all aspects of  program design, development, implementation, and evaluation. We can also provide targeted technical supports including research, data, tools, training, technical assistance, peer learning, and online learning supports.  We typically deliver these supports through customized learning networks where participants share supports and exchange knowledge through an online learning center.

Community learning & development is designed to help community stakeholders work together to solve challenges and improve performance.   Together the participants choose a focus, assess needs, design strategies, develop capabilities, execute for results, and demonstrate value.  The focus for learning may include elements of strategic learning, action learning, or both.  Community Health Solutions can assist with all aspects of  program design, development, implementation, and evaluation.  We can also provide targeted technical supports including research, data, tools, training, technical assistance, and online learning supports.  We typically deliver these supports through customized learning networks where participants share supports and exchange knowledge through an online learning center.

Professional learning institutes provide focused learning & development supports for individuals or teams from multiple organizations. Examples include institutes that teach principles of leadership, strategy, and policy to defined groups of professional participants. Community Health Solutions helps organizations design, deliver, and evaluate professional learning institutes for a variety of audiences and topics. We can also assist acquiring professional education credits.  We typically deliver these supports through customized learning networks where participants share supports and exchange knowledge through an online learning center.

Continuous organizational learning & development is imperative for survival in a knowledge economy.  We help organizations engage in strategic learning to optimize strategy in a dynamic environment.  We also help organizations use action learning to solve operational challenges and develop team talent.  In crafting these programs we work closely with the sponsors top optimize program design, development, implementation, and evaluation. Our goal in all of this work is to help organizations develop learning supports that are efficient, flexible, and responsive to the evolving needs of the organization.  We typically deliver these supports through customized learning networks where participants share supports and exchange knowledge through an online learning center.

Continuing education credit can be a valuable incentive for participation in professional learning programs. Community Health Solutions works with sponsors and accrediting agencies to design continuing education programs that are eligible for credit. Recently we have worked on a series of innovative programs that include credits for multiple disciplines including physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and social. We can provide more detail on the potential for continuing education credit based on the scope and design of the program.  We typically deliver these supports through customized learning networks where participants share supports and share knowledge through an online learning center.
