Back to Wisconsin PBRN Page


The Wisconsin PBRN’s study developed, tested, and validated an instrument for measuring the quality of community health improvement planning and implementation processes (CHIPP) facilitated by local public health agencies across the state. Moving beyond the mere description of CHIPP components, a valid measurement tool for CHIPP quality was implemented with local public health agencies across Wisconsin. Measures were collected and used in a comparative analysis of factors that influence the quality and comprehensiveness of CHIPP practices, and factors that influence the degree of success in moving from assessment to implementation actions.
