***An Important Notice to Our Training Website Audience***

On March 31st, at 11:59 PM ET the North Carolina Institute of Public Health Training Website will be retired.

For more than 17 years, the NCIPH Training Website has been a trusted resource for quality online public health trainings with over 321,000 training completions for more than 110,000 persons in 178 countries since the site was launched. Maintaining a comprehensive "home-grown" learning management system in the face of rapidly changing technology and an explosion of free online training offerings no longer makes sense and so, in Spring 2020 we are retiring the NCIPH Training Website (TWS) entirely.

What does this mean for you?

You must complete all training activity in the Training Website by the end of day on March 31st. After that, you will not be able to begin new trainings, or complete in-progress trainings, on the site. The Real-Time Assessment and Learning Tool (RALT) will no longer be available when the NCIPH Training Website retires. We highly recommend downloading or printing all training records (completions, assessments, certificates, RALT data) if you want to retain them. However, TWS users will still be able to access their transcripts and individual course certificates through the end of 2020.

Where will the TWS content go?

Fortunately, many of our online training modules will be made available through other sources. In particular, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be hosting many of the trainings currently on the TWS through the national TRAIN learning management system. Please visit our Where Are My Trainings? page for up-to-date information on where various trainings will be hosted.

Introduction to an Integrated Approach (WISH, Module 1)

Fee:None
Length: 25 minutes
Description:This training provides an introduction to an integrated approach for women's health and wellness and covers some basic background and core principles. It is the first training in a six-part series designed for those public health and/or mental health professionals who oversee health programs and services for adolescent girls and women of reproductive age. It is strongly recommended that users complete the modules in the series in sequence. To see a complete listing for the series please go to the Training Series section of this site.

The Women's Integrated Systems for Health (WISH) Online Training Series focuses on key components of an integrated approach to promoting the health of women during late adolescence and throughout the child-bearing years. This training series arose from the need for practice-based tools that advance multi-disciplinary partnership, community engagement and using evidence-based approaches grounded in proven theoretical models.

Women's Integrated Systems for Health (WISH) was a training grant funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the Bureau of Health Professions in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2010-13 with a partnership between the NC Institute for Public Health and the Department of Maternal and Child Health at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and the UNC Center for Maternal and Infant Health at the UNC School of Medicine. The project focused on promoting integrative community approaches to optimize mental and physical health among adolescents and women of reproductive age.
