Public Comment Period: The Task Force invites educators and the public to submit comments online through the APTR website by September 30, 2014.
The Framework offers a common core of knowledge for clinical health professions about individual and population-oriented prevention and health promotion efforts. Health professions educators are encouraged to review their curricula and requirements to ensure they include elements of the Framework.
The Framework provides:
Content outline that is compatible with a range of learning outcomes or competencies as determined by each health profession,
Structure for organizing and monitoring curriculum,
Structure for communicating within and among health professions.
The CPPH Framework was featured on a Healthy People 2020 Spotlight on Health Webinar titled, "Prevention and Population Health Education Across the Health Professions," which was co-sponsored by APTR and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP).
