Trainers” that can be used as a reference guide to steps that are described more fully in the
manual. It also contains information about the technical requirements needed for playing the
audio-visual components of this module.
The Training Manual
The training manual has been divided into several sections that can be presented separately,
although it is recommended that the sections be used and presented sequentially. Links to
handouts and related reference material within each section have been built into this module to
assist in referencing or presenting the material. For your convenience, each section of the manual
is presented in three file formats: html, doc, and pdf. Use whichever format works best for you.
Introduction. This section presents a brief introduction to the module, its history, the
contributors, and the need, purpose, and goals of the training.
Instructions for Trainers. This section provides trainers with an overview of the contents of the
manual and presents information needed to prepare for and conduct the training. It also includes
a “Quick Overview for Trainers” to use as a reference guide to remembering the steps that are
described more fully in the manual.
The History and Development of the Essential Services. This section contains a copy of the
“Essential Services of Environmental Health” PowerPoint presentation. A rationale and
suggested narrative for each slide is provided to assist the trainer in making the presentation.
Organizational Assessments. This section contains tools for the trainer to assess the assets and
limitations within an organization. This activity will help the trainer to begin the Essential
Services development process. It contains instructions on conducting the assessments and cites
examples. Links to the Resources section of this manual are provided to assist the trainer in using
the appropriate forms, templates, or examples needed to conduct the exercises. The information
produced by participants during these exercises should be retained to assist in the development of
performance indicators.

Essential Services of Environmental Health                                   Instructions for Trainers


Resources
This section of the CD-ROM provides additional materials that will be helpful to the trainer in
conducting the training. The Resources folder contains the following subfolders: Case Studies,
Materials for Trainers, and Handouts for the Participants.


Audio-Visual Presentations
This part of the CD-ROM contains multimedia presentations that can be delivered in a variety of
formats.
History and Development of the Essential Services of Environmental Health
This presentation can be delivered in one of three ways:
       A multimedia presentation (available in both Flash and RealPlayer) that includes images
        and a narrated audio track. The presentation is self-running, however the trainer can stop
        and start the presentation when and as needed. The trainer will monitor the presentation,
        facilitate the completion of the questionnaire, and answer questions. This presentation
        format can’t be modified by the trainer.
       A PowerPoint presentation conducted by the trainer. It includes selected audio quotes and
        images that stress important points. The trainer can use the “History and Development of
        the Essential Services of Environmental Health” section of the manual that accompanies
        this presentation to practice delivering the presentation. The slides can be modified by the
        trainer to address specific training or organizational needs. The trainer will also facilitate
        the completion of the questionnaire, answer questions, and have complete control of the
        pace and sequencing of the slides.
       A PowerPoint presentation without the audio files or images. This presentation is
        controlled and presented by the trainer, and the slides and narrative can be modified as
        needed.
Developing Performance Indicators
This presentation can be delivered in one of two ways:
       A multimedia presentation (available in both Flash and RealPlayer) that includes images
        and a narrated audio track. The presentation is self-running, however the trainer can stop
        and start the presentation when and as needed. The trainer will monitor the presentation
        and answer questions.
       A PowerPoint presentation conducted by the trainer. The trainer can use the “Developing
        Performance Indicators” section of the manual that accompanies this presentation to
        practice delivery of the presentation. The slides can be modified by the trainer to address
        specific training or organizational needs. The trainer will conduct the presentation,
        answer questions, and will control the pace and sequencing of the slides.

Essential Services of Environmental Health                                  Instructions for Trainers


Setting the Stage
It is important that all participants have a general understanding about the purpose and objectives
of the training. This should be discussed (in a staff meeting, memo, etc) prior to the training.
Additional information to be shared with the participants in preparation for the training should
cover at least the following elements:
       Time commitment. The training will last approximately 4 to 8 total hours (which can be
        divided into one or more trainings).
       Location. The training will be conducted on a site or at a location that will be reasonably
        convenient for all staff to attend.
       Trainer. The training will be given by (trainer’s name) but is based on a nationally
        recognized module that was prepared specifically for environmental health practitioners.
       Scope/audience. The training is aimed at the practice of environmental health, as
        opposed to a specific technical or program topic. It will be relevant to all, regardless of a
        person’s program area or specialty.
       Applicability. The training will provide information based on feedback and experiences
        of environmental health agencies that have piloted this training.
       Purpose. The training will enable environmental health practitioners to develop the
        confidence to successfully incorporate the 10 Essential Services of Environmental Health
        into daily practice.

In May, 2002 a Public Health Training Network Satellite Broadcast was presented nationwide.
This broadcast, “Enhancing Environmental Health Practice in the 21st Century” depicts the six
goals outlined by the National Center for Environmental Health, CDC, and discusses the
relationship of the goals to the Essential Services. A video of this broadcast lasting about 1 ½
hours was made available to or copied by local and state health agencies around the nation. Local
or state agencies with access to this video have found it extremely useful as an introduction to
the presentation of the training module. A copy of the CDC publication that depicts the strategy:
“A National Strategy to Revitalize Environmental Public Health Services,” published September,
2003, also can be acquired by contacting NCEH, CDC (www.NCEH/CDC.gov).
Some agencies have found that a questionnaire, similar to one used in the development of this
manual, (see Resources Section) can be used to identify the participant’s knowledge and practice
of the Essential Services in the organization. This will provide the trainer with information about
areas needing most focus for the training. This tool will also be an effective means of introducing
the participants to the training and to the Essential Services and performance indicators. This can
be distributed and analyzed prior to the training. (Note: An alternative is to have the participants
complete the questionnaire immediately following the introductory slides in the “Essential
Services of Environmental Health” PowerPoint presentation. Instructions for this option are
described in the presentation.)

Essential Services of Environmental Health                                 Instructions for Trainers


Training Objectives
By the end of the training, the participants should be able to:
       Describe the history and rationale for the Ten Essential Services
       Explain the value of the Essential Services to environmental health practice
       Identify the organization’s challenges or barriers to incorporating the Essential Services
       Develop strategies to address the challenges or barriers
       Write performance indicators for the Essential Services
       Identify next steps in incorporating the Essential Services into their organization

Role of the Trainer
The entire manual should be read and understood by the trainer prior to conducting the training.
The role of the trainer should be to:
       Provide the purpose and objectives of the training
       Define expectations of the participants
       Provide exercise timelines and instructions
       Present the module
       Clarify and answer questions
       Keep the presentation to the allotted time schedule
       Clarify next steps

Needed Materials
The following instructional materials are needed for this training:
       Laptop computer, screen, and LCD projector for PowerPoint slides (If this equipment is
        unavailable, copies of each PowerPoint slide can be distributed as handouts.)
       Large note pads on easels and marker pens for group activity
       Handouts (found in the Resources Section). Each participant should receive each
        handout. It is recommended that they be distributed as a packet of material at the
        beginning of the training. Some handouts may be optional and are identified where
        appropriate.

Training Assumptions
This training module is based on the following assumptions:
    1. Environmental factors are an important determinant of community health status.
    2. Environmental health is an important part of public health practice.
    3. Participants working in environmental health strive to make a difference in improving the
       health of people in their community.
Although these assumptions are nested in the training module presentation, it is important that
the trainer also agrees with and values these assumptions. The training will only be as effective
as the enthusiasm and direction offered by the trainer. These assumptions may need to be
validated during the introduction to the training.

Instructional Points to Consider

Northwest Center for Public Health Practice                                                          4
Essential Services of Environmental Health                                   Instructions for Trainers


In preparation for this training:
    1. Ensure that all participants are provided general instructions about the purpose and
       outcomes intended from the training.
    2. Let participants know that this training relates directly to their job, and that it includes the
       latest national work and direction regarding the practice of environmental health
    3. Offer to invite others outside of environmental health to this training, particularly those
       who might lend support to the implementation of any of the Essential Services. This
       includes other public health practitioners, local board of health members, staff from other
       agencies, and students from universities who are interested in environmental health.
    4. Understand and practice the presentation prior to training.


At the start of the training
    1. Refer participants to the handouts packet and the material that will be used during the
       training
    2. Explain that the training is in two parts. The first part is lecture format and explains the
       background and development of the Essential Services of Environmental Health. Explain
       who will deliver this part and how it will be presented. The second part is in a workshop
       format, and the participants will devote their time to practice writing performance
       indicators. Explain that other interactive exercises may also be offered.
    3. Explain that some portions of the training module will be presented in multimedia or
       PowerPoint slide format. This same information and format is also being used nationally
       in other local and state environmental agencies and academic institutions.
    4. Explain that case studies of environmental health organizations that have actually applied
       the Essential Services in their organizations are available as a part of this module. These
       may be used and discussed at appropriate times during the training to emphasize, clarify,
       or explain certain points.
    5. Point out that the slides may elicit questions about the participants’ current practice.
       These questions are encouraged and will add value to the workshop portion of the
       discussion. By reviewing the module ahead of time, the trainer may know whether the
       question will be addressed by later slides.
    6. Indicate that a discussion regarding next steps for the organization will follow the
       workshop. This training is intended to be a starting point for incorporating the Essential
       Services into practice.
    7. Explain that it is important that performance indicators be developed locally, with
       sensitivity to the organization’s political realities, capacity, time, and support for follow
       through. Failure to do so may mean that indicators will be developed by others resulting
       in participants having no say or input about what is locally appropriate or relevant.
    8. Explain that an evaluation of the training will be conducted at the completion of the
       training.
    9. Be enthusiastic; communicate the importance and value of the Essential Services
       throughout the training. Encourage the participants to think about environmental health

        problems being experienced by the organization to illustrate the connection of the
        Essential Services to current practice.
    10. Stress the importance and value of the Essentials Services for both the individual and the
        organization. Keep in mind that individuals and organizations often have conflicting
        needs or goals.
    11. Answer any remaining questions before making the presentation.
