Public health focuses on improving and protecting community health and well-being using multiple strategies. Effective public health work is guided by data that can help it evaluate program impact, monitor its progress, and determine barriers to change. Indicators or performance measures are used in public health to measure progress. The EMS for Children program has designed performance measures as a set of standards to measure long-term progress at both state and national levels in key areas of pediatric emergency care. Indicators or performance measures can inform managers about changes and help managers make changes to their program.


In this 2 1/2-day workshop participants will develop an understanding of core values, concepts, basic processes, and approaches in public health. This information will enable participants to be able to use this knowledge for addressing health-related needs and concerns of populations. Participants will be able to describe how social determinants of health impacts pediatric emergency care. They will be able describe basic concepts of effective and persuasive health communication. They will learn about the different elements that make up a successful program (i.e. inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes), as well as explore the context in which these programs function (e.g. social context, stakeholders, external factors, assumptions). Participants will have an increased understanding of how programmatic activities are related to national performance measures. Participants will explore how use and visualize performance measure data and other types of data for program planning, improvement, and impactful change.

Learning Objectives:

1. Interpret the process of performance measurement in the context of public health
2. Describe Performance Measure data with charts, graphs and other visual aids using aggregate data
3. Develop data-driven programmatic activities

Target Audience:

EMSC Program Managers
