Partnerships between health services increases the efficiency and effectiveness in services, accelerates improvements in the provision of care, and allows for sharing of expertise and knowledge that contributes to the continual pursuit of providing excellent care.
The partnership analysis tool, created by VicHealth, is useful for organisations entering into or working in a partnership to assess, monitor and maximise its ongoing effectiveness.
It is designed to help organisations:
- develop a clearer understanding of the range of purposes of collaborations
- reflect on the partnerships they have established
- focus on ways to strengthen new and existing partnerships by engaging in discussion about issues and ways forward
The partnership analysis tool and checklist is available to download from the VicHealth website.
