Survey for Public Health Practicioners
The National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) is conducting a job task analysis and is seeking as broad of a response rate as possible. This job task analysis is the first of its kind. It will define performance domains and tasks performed by a public health professional, Job task analyses are typically performed to ensure the integrity of a professional examination. However, in addition to confirming how well the CPH examination measures the competence of CPH candidates, the evidence-based data stemming from the job task analysis will also be useful to the seminal ASPPH Framing the Future initiative, which is looking at the future of public health education.
A panel of employers representing the various sectors of public health put together this job task analysis survey. It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Anyone working in public health is invited to respond at: http://nbphe.org/jobanalysis.cfm Respondents are also encouraged to share this link with colleagues.
In recognition of the time required to respond, the NBPHE will be raffling off 5 iPads to individuals who complete the survey.
A summary of the public health job task analysis report will be posted on the NBPHE website (www.nbphe.org) by fall 2014.
