    • Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP)

      Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) AISP is an initiative funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation through a grant to University of Pennsylvania Professors Dennis Culhane, School of Social Policy and Practice, and John Fantuzzo, Graduate School of Education. The principal aim of AISP is to improve the quality of education, health and human service agencies’ policies and practices through the use of integrated data systems. Quality integrated data systems are designed to help executive leaders in municipal, county, and state government evaluate and establish effective programs for the people they serve. From 2009-2012 AISP concentrated on three main objectives: 1) promoting a professional network; 2) establishing guidelines for practice; and 3) demonstrating research and analytic capacities that integrated data systems enable. AISP’s activities during this time built support for the efforts of state, county, and municipal education, health and human service agencies to improve their use of data for policy analysis and program improvement. Currently, AISP continues to work on the above aims while focusing intently on the following three key goals: 1) developing the capacities of existing and new IDS sites; 2) demonstrating uses of IDS for policy and program reforms; and 3) identifying opportunities for innovation in the development and use of IDS.

    • Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education

      Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education (EIN) was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation national program, directed by the Center for State Health Policy. This national initiative supported evaluations of interventions that expanded teaching capacity or promoted faculty recruitment and retention in schools of nursing. Michael Yedidia, M.P.H., Ph.D., Research Professor at the Center, served as the Director for this initiative, and Joanne T. Fuccello, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., served as Deputy Director.

      In 2011, the EIN program staff completed a National Survey of Nurse Faculty. To create customized findings and choose from over 60 characteristics of workload and attitudes toward work-life and explore how they differ among faculty subgroups, use NuFAQs, our Nurse Faculty query web based tool. Data were collected from a nationally representative sample of full-time faculty members teaching in nursing schools that offer at least one degree program that prepares graduates to sit for the licensure exam.
