Planning for Outreach Program Implementation

Wed, May 18, 2016 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

Presented by Health Outreach Partners

Implementing a comprehensive outreach program requires structure that allows all members of the team to understand their roles and responsibilities. Programmatic work plans outline how an outreach team will complete their work by describing exactly what the program hopes to accomplish and the specific steps to do so. Policies and protocols establish important guidelines for carrying out outreach activities and outline specific processes that support implementation. In this webinar, participants will learn how to develop a work plan for their outreach program. Participants will also gain the tools to develop policies and protocols for their program. This webinar builds on planning components introduced in the previous webinar entitled Establishing an Outreach Program Vision and Monitoring Your Progress.

Learning Objectives:
• Participants will be able to identify and describe the components of a work plan and create one for their own program.
• Participants will be able to use the tools presented to develop their own policies and protocols.
• Participants will understand how all of the components of planning support the implementation of a comprehensive outreach program.
