Leadership Literature Library and Collection of Case Stories

 

The resource library of literature pertaining to leadership development is designed to support Chronic Disease Directors and emerging leader chronic disease unit staff in improving operational capacity, such as policies and plans, administration and management, and quality improvement. The featured articles are selected from peer-reviewed literature, like Journal of Public Health Management and Practice and American Journal of Preventive Medicine, and align with organizational capacity development best practices.

The format for each literature feature within this resource library is the same and provides relevant NACDD chronic disease competencies, an introduction/purpose, a summary, supportive detail on the application to chronic disease leadership and practice, and more. Each feature lists a theme, which can include reference to a specific STAR Framework component, or spoke: (1) Partnerships and Relationships; (2) Workforce Development; (3) Leadership; (4) Management and Administration; (5) Organizational Climate and Culture; and/or (6) Evidence-Based Public Health Practice. In addition, each feature contains reflection questions to further explore the application of practices described in the literature to public health work.

Similarly, the case stories highlight promising practices in leadership and management of chronic disease prevention and health promotion. This collection of stories features the work of various state health departments and also may connect to STAR Framework components. Topics include partnerships to address Adverse Childhood Experiences, bi-directional collaboration to advance Public Health 3.0, leadership to create a culture of results, organizational capacity building, and more.
