MAPP Network

An online forum for MAPP communities

We are getting ready to begin a second iteration of MAPP and I am interested in others' lessons learned~for instance, in a small, rural community, any ideas out there on how to keep our workgroups going and also select priority community data to update.  How to meet hospital needs for assessment every 3 years, while some of our data would not be measurably changed!  Also, our population is small, and we don't want to spread our engaged partners too thin with too many tasks.  I'll appreciate any thoughts on this~

Sharon, I work with MAPP teams to help them write business plans -- I think the business planning process is a good way to keep partners engaged and drive prioritization. Writing a business plan requires you to pick one specific health improvement idea and  develop it into a sustainable venture... that links health department and partners. If it works right, the result is a new service for the community that more deeply engages some of your partners, attracts start-up money and then generates revenue for sustainability... and maybe some good "community benefit" for the hospital at the same time!

Thank you! good idea, and not one I would have thought of, as a nurse; we actually have two priorities that have now received grant support, so I will raise this perspective in our collaborative

Glad to help. I can share templates and  on-line trainings specific to business planning in public health when you get to that point!
