Announcing the MCH Navigator's 5-Minute MCH

June 24, 2015

Beginning in July 2015, the MCH Navigator will conduct a monthly series that explores each of the 12 MCH Leadership Competencies, provides learning opportunities and implementation strategies, and culminates in an interactive learning session with an expert from the field. The series will consist of an easy-to-follow format designed to increase your knowledge and skills through 5-minute intensive learning sessions emailed to you each week and available through the Navigator's web portal:

  • In week 1 of each month, you will learn about a 1 new competency through a 5-minute video podcast. You will learn what knowledge and skill sets each competency contains and how they are important for your daily work. You will also be linked to the MCH Navigator's online self-assessment to further identify your learning needs.
  • In week 2 of each month, you will receive 5 highly focused learning opportunities for that month's competency. You may take one or all of the trainings to sharpen your knowledge and skills. You can share your learning experiences online with others who have taken the same trainings.
  • In week 3 of each month, you will receive 5 implementation strategies to put knowledge to practice. You can share your experiences implementing the strategies in your workplace on the 5-Minute Portal.
  • In week 4 of each month, you will hear a 5-minute presentation from an expert in the field. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and dialogue with other health professionals in a 10-minute follow-up to the speaker. Now you are on your way to becoming an expert!
