  1. Fulltext. The feasibility and desirability of public health credentialing : a survey of public health leaders.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The goal of this study was to provide insight concerning the potential of credentialing public health workers through an exploratory examination of public health leaders'perceptions.

    Methods

    Qualitative and quantative procedures were used.

    Credentialing issues were identified through the literature and through openended interviews with leaders and experts.

    A 74-item Likert-type survey was used to quantify perceptions.

    Key informants and survey participants were identified through pertinent organizations.

    Results

    The public health leaders leaned toward consensus on some benefits of an concerns about credentialing.

    There was no consensus related to a specific form of desired credentialing, although national certification was supported by a plurality.

    State licensing and an emphasis on the master's in public health (MPH) degree were opposed by large margins.

    Public health leadership survey results were similar to results of a survey of credentialing experts.

    Conclusions

    The lack of consensus and the vehemence of some opposing positions indicate that movements toward credentialing should proceed cautiously.

    However, many of the response patterns indicate that the issue merits further exploration.
