SEPDPO's Continuing Education Accreditation and Learner Support Team supports DHHS and CDC missions through continuing education, by
- educating or training,
- supporting, and
the delivery of the continuing education activities CDC sponsors for our global audience of physicians, nurses, and other health-care professionals.
As leaders in public health training and education, the team strives to enhance the knowledge and effectiveness of the public health workforce through live educational activities and enduring course materials. These educational materials are developed and presented by CDC and other public health professionals to promote the health of the public and to increase awareness regarding national and international health topics. Through use of multiple formats, CDC continually expands the variety of educational opportunities.
The content areas of our activities span all levels of public health care and service, including public health needs and prevention tools that people and communities need to protect their health — through health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for emerging threats, rapid-response education.
Our target audience includes the global community of physicians, nurses, and other health-care professionals, as well as those interested in the latest information on emerging threats to public health. The format or types of activities include onsite conferences, online courses, satellite broadcasts, podcasts, electronic conferences, print-based materials, and journal articles.
Expected results are a competent and prepared public health workforce as measured by,
- on-going improvement in sponsored continuing education courses to measure successful achievement of changes in competence;
- a demonstrated responsive and flexible process for obtaining continuing education for our customers;
- well-designed, well-developed continuing education activities that meet the identified professional practice gaps of the participants;
- increased learner participation and professional development; and
- continued support in meeting the multiple types of licensing requirements.
