Publication: Emerging lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic about the decisive competencies needed for the public health workforce: A qualitative study
02 sep 2022

SEEEPHI is pleased that the second project paper is now published by Frontiers in Public Health. The paper describes the qualitative qualitative interviews with public health employers carried out by WP2 for the analysis of field qualifications required in Istael. The research aimed to examine public health workforce competencies needed to face COVID-19 challenges and identify the gaps between training programs and the competency demands of real-world disasters and pandemics. Through a sample of thirty-one participant qualitative interviews, we examined the perspectives of diverse stakeholders from lead public health organizations in Israel.
