MetadataShow full item record
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is entering the third era in which education and learning occur in a workplace. The concept of learning in the profession is believed to lead to the improvement of job performance of public health professionals. However, little research has been done to understand the relationship of the dimensions of the learning culture and participation in professional development of public health professionals. All data were collected from December 2013 to February 2014 using online survey. The final sample used for analysis consisted of 172 public health professionals in the database of The Georgia of Public Health Training Center (GPHTC). The results from this study suggested that most public health professionals participated in available formal, informal, and incidental learning opportunities in their organization to advance in their professions. The results also suggest that the participants mostly considered the learning culture in their organization as high at individual, team/group, and organizational level. These perceptions of learning culture of public health professional are significantly correlated with their participation in the informal and incidental learning activities.
