Systems change toolkit for chronic disease prevention
A guide for local public health agencies working with community clinics to improve chronic disease prevention and screening
Local public health agencies have long been leaders in improving the health of the communities they serve. As trusted sources of information and resources, these agencies can work together with local medical providers to promote health, including the improvement of chronic-disease prevention and screening rates.
This toolkit is designed to help local public health agencies create partnerships with clinics in the community to facilitate quality improvement efforts at the clinical level. These efforts are aimed at preventing chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
