Community Readiness & Organizational Capacity
In order to ensure positive short and long term outcomes, communities must be ready to successfully implement prevention strategies. Organizations must also have the capacity to develop partnerships to effectively plan, implement, and evaluate strategies. This one-hour webinar will focus on how to assess the level of community readiness to address a particular issue and how to increase readiness once the assessment is complete. We will discuss the Community Readiness Model and also broaden our understanding of the various dimensions of community readiness. We will also discuss steps for building organizational capacity both internally and externally. Finally, we will connect the level of community readiness with the prioritization process communities should conduct before strategy implementation occurs.

This webinar will be lead by Ashley Bodiford, MPH, MS, CSPS, ICPS
