AUCD Announces the Including People with Disabilities: Public Health Workforce Competencies

The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) would like to announce the release of the Including People with Disabilities: Public Health Workforce Competencies.  The Competencies outline recent advances in knowledge and practice skills that public health professionals need to include people with disabilities in the core public health functions - Assessment, Policy Development and Assurance. The Competencies have been developed by a national committee comprised of disability and public health experts.

This resource includes strategies, examples and e-learning resources on how to implement the competencies in the daily work of the public health professional as well embed them into existing public health curricula and trainings.

The accompanying e- learning modules will also assist with implementation. These modules were made possible by funding from the Association of Teachers of Maternal and Child Health (ATMCH).

These Competencies align with existing broad public health competencies, and compliment them. These existing competencies include those developed by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health, Masters in Public Health Core Competencies; Public Health Accreditation Board; Public Health Foundation Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals, Council on Linkages Between Public Health and Academia, and the 10 Essential Public Health Services. In addition, they foster workforce capacity-building priorities, such as the Healthy People 2020, Disability and Health Objective DH-3.
