The Cardiovascular Health team has a number of projects this summer that would lend itself well for an intern that is interested in state public health policy, focusing on cardiovascular health and health systems change. Projects include, but are not limited to supporting:

• Million Hearts® Collaboration Community Clinical Linkages Toolkit • Advancing Team-Based Care through the Use of the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process and Collaborative Practice Agreements • Fireside Chat and Virtual Roundtables focused on a Health Systems Approach

Million Hearts® Collaboration Community Clinical Linkages Toolkit NACDD has also been a proud national partner of Million Hearts®, and has worked with 16 state public health agencies to plan and facilitate Million Hearts® Stakeholders Workshops and to provide follow up technical assistance since 2012. A summary is available at https://chronicdisease.site-ym.com/? MHInit. NACDD is currently working with the American Heart Association and other organizations such as National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), and the Association of Public Health Nurses (APHN) and others to develop a toolkit of resources related to hypertension control to compliment the recently released Practitioner’s Guide: Community-Clinical Linkages for the Prevention and Control of Chronic Diseases.

Advancing Team-Based Care through the Use of the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process and Collaborative Practice Agreements NACDD is working with several state teams to advance team-based care using the pharmacists’ patient care process (PPCP) and collaborative practice agreements (CPA) designed to manage high blood pressure. These teams will serve as facilitators-in-training within their state and provide trainings to community pharmacists and primary care physician members. The teams participated in a 2-day planning workshop on May 24-25, 2017 in Atlanta, GA and have 3 webinars this summer to obtain additional technical assistance; report out on their progress; and to share their resources with each other. The state teams and the resources they are using can be found at http://www.chronicdisease.org/? page=PPCPandCPAProject Fireside Chat and Virtual Roundtables focused on a Health Systems Approach NACDD provides an interactive format called fireside chats for state health agencies to hear from content experts on a number of issues pertaining to cardiovascular health priority areas.
