Web-based Toolkit to Advance Community Health Equity

Posted by on July 12th, 2017 Posted in: Minority Health Concerns

This customizable tool, from Urban Universities for Health, allows institutions to obtain a customized list of measures to assist in evaluation of efforts to enhance and expand a diverse, culturally sensitive, and prepared health and scientific workforce. It provides resources to help establish baseline measures to record progress, set and meet goals, and improve reporting. Toolkit resources include: nn interactive web tool, the Metrics Generator, to select strategies, indicators, and measures that align with an institution’s unique mission and local needs; a 1-page summary of Urban Universities for HEALTH workforce strategies; a complete list of strategies, indicators and measures included in the Metrics Generator; a detailed evidence base to support health and scientific workforce strategies; a glossary of key terms; example case studies from the Urban Universities for HEALTH demonstration sites to highlight best practices using the strategies and data in the toolkit; and sample institutional dashboards to demonstrate how data might be displayed.
