13 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE – YOUR TEAM What are 1 – 2 commonly held (or portrayed) stereotypes or misunderstandings of your particular profession? How would you describe the role your profession plays in maintaining the health and wellbeing of seniors?


15 THE CASE: WHERE DOES THE TEAM START? This is a team effort! No one leader but is a team of many parts Each brings experience from their specialty area The table is round so all suggestions are welcome! Start with An outline of what you think you need – everyone participates Then fill in the parts – may divide work load For instance, what are the MIFA Program Characteristics? What is the Vision? What is the Mission? What is the Program description?

16 STATISTICS Zip Code statistics pstats.html pstats.html A good place to start How does this population compare to the state, county, or city overall?

17 STATISTICS Census data What does the census data say about the target population, the Memphis community, the county, or the state at large? How does this community compare to others?

18 PICK HEALTH INDICATORS LECTION LECTION Consider MIFA role in addressing Impact of partnerships with UTHSC Technology How does it all relate

19 SOCIAL ECOLOGICAL MODEL OM/THESOCIO-ECOLOGICALMODEL.HTM OM/THESOCIO-ECOLOGICALMODEL.HTM 4 levels Individual – knowledge, skills, attitudes Interpersonal – family friends, social networks Organizational – organizations, social institutions Community – relationships among organizations Public Policy – national, state and local laws “The World We Live In Influences Us!”

20 PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Discover the Strengths of the Program Vision and Mission Strategies to address the issues What are health disparities addressed by MIFA How do you answer these and other questions using a logical method?

21 LOGIC MODEL FOR MIFA’S COMPANION PROGRAM Define the Situation (reason for the program) Identify the resources available to MIFA Identify the stakeholders Identify the short, medium and long term goals in the program materials Identify the barriers to implementation of the program Identify the assumptions about the program

22 LOGIC MODEL RESOURCES Kellogg-Foundation-Logic-Model-Development-Guide.aspx United Way _program_outcomes_a_practical_approach/progra m_film

23 LOGIC MODELS IDENTIFY RESOURCES AND BARRIERS IN PROGRAMS Volunteers Financial Community partners Stakeholders Recipients How are you going to know how to plan solutions? (drum roll….)


25 YOUR IMAGINATION IS THE LIMIT Tell MIFA about the pearls in their program Recommend a significant program change Develop a plan for program change or growth Literacy Volunteer recruitment and training Increased revenues Financial planning Other identified solutions

26 TEAM PRESENTATION SUGGESTIONS Be succinct Use models and verbal images Tell a story about the program and the community Did you visit the neighborhood in a window survey? What are the identified social determinates of health? What are the disparities?

27 TEAM PRESENTATION SUGGESTIONS How do you make your story a patient centered analysis? (Hint: what’s in the news?) Compare and contrast the views of the team members, including professional experiences, training, and backgrounds Are there literacy issues? Are the other things you think of ok? OF COURSE! All ideas are welcome for program intervention Caveat – don’t be so broad that you lose focus of your team’s intervention(s)!

28 THE SKY’S THE LIMIT FOR IDEAS! Finances are not… so Thread the program intervention throughout the logic model and your team’s narrative Maintain fidelity with activities in your suggested program intervention throughout your presentation Try to find the latest and greatest evidence base for your suggestion(s) and plan(s) Create a sustainable and affordable program intervention! Have a great time! Are there Questions?
