Bringing it All Together - An Integrated Approach (WISH, Module 6)

Length: 20 minutes
Description:This training is final 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 brings together the content of the earlier modules in the series to show the complete model of the integrated approach with all of its component parts. It also has suggested exercises for learners who would like to think about how some of the concepts learned in the training series might be relevant to their own professional settings. 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.
