At Ascendant Healthcare Partners, we believe that a well-trained workforce is essential for realizing our vision of healthier people and communities. We are committed to providing high-quality training on emerging health issues to empower professionals and community members alike.

Our Methodology

We believe we can only realize our vision for healthier people and communities with the help of a well-trained workforce ready to take on large and complex challenges. That’s why we’re committed to being a go-to source of high-quality training for emerging health issues.

That is also why one of our most paramount goals and beliefs is that community engagement is imperative for the success of any healthcare initiative. Through our engagement workshops, we empower community members to actively contribute to the decision-making process and ensure that any initiatives developed align with and resonate with your community’s unique needs.

Our Approach

While based in Florida, our services extend nationwide. We offer either in-person or virtual community workshops via Zoom. We specialize in hosting regional professional learning community workshops to facilitate unified collaboration among health departments. Much like our ability to tailor our Community Assessments and Strategic Plans, we customize our workshops to fit the needs of our clients and their communities. 

Our approach always begins with understanding your Burning Why. This preparatory exercise is designed to help you understand your community’s health priorities and ambitions. It asks questions like:

  • What are the community’s current health priorities?
  • What are the community’s top three weaknesses or vulnerabilities?
  • How would you rate the current state of your community across key pillars?


These questions allow Ascendant Healthcare Partners to gain insights into where you are starting from and where you would like initiatives to take you– the results you want to achieve. We empower you to envision a trajectory for your community’s health. 

Some of our workshop topics cover a range of topics tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients and their communities. The following is a non-exhaustive list of issues:

Needs Assessments & Implementation Plans

We walk through the Community Health Needs Assessment Plans and various other implementation plans to ensure every member genuinely understands the plans and reports. If you have the resources, we also address action items. If you don’t have the available resources, we work to assist in acquiring those resources or to become that resource for you. 

How to Develop Partnerships & Collaborations

Our workshops often host local, state, and regional health departments and various key stakeholders in community health initiatives. These community development workshops focus on what you want to work on, address how things have changed, and share new techniques. The collaborative nature of these community workshops often intrigues people the most, and with good reason—this group setting provides a series of exercises at each level to examine how you can improve or dive deeper into these initiatives.

Dive Deeper Into Health Equity

Explore how health is more than sickness and learn how to identify health inequities within your community. Health Equity is about more than differences in health outcomes—it is about health equity in practice. In these group settings with other regional, state, and local departments, share insights with fellow departments, learn quality improvement techniques, and expand opportunities to dive deeper into your assessments. 

Quality Improvement (QI) Training

Participate in workshops tailored to enhance your understanding through rapid-cycle evaluation of efforts to improve services and outcomes. This empowers you to drive continuous improvement in your community health initiatives.

At Ascendant Healthcare Partners, our Community Workshops are designed to empower professionals and community members with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to address emerging health challenges and drive positive change within their communities. Through these highly customized professional learning community workshops and with our expert guidance, we are committed to supporting the success of your community health initiatives. 

We meet your community where you are.
