Establishing successful partnerships is the foundation for many services in the healthcare industry. Some partnerships are formed to gain knowledge and expertise in a new field of operation or service, and some partnerships are formed to share resources. Other partnerships are formed to conduct participatory research to contribute to short-term change or long-term progress, such as policy creation.
For the assignment this week, you will analyze the following journal article to identify successful partnerships with major stakeholders in the US healthcare industry:
Davis, M. M., Gross, C. P., & Clancy, C. M. (2012). Building a bridge to somewhere better: Linking health care research and health policy.Health Services Research, 47(1pt2), 329–336. doi: 10.1111/j.1475-6773.2011.01373.x. (EBSCO AN: 70285300).
Write a 3–5-page paper in Microsoft Word format. Include the following:
- Identify the successful partnerships and collaborations mentioned in the article.
- Describe the leadership qualities the parties possessed that made these partnerships successful.
- Compare the mission and vision of the partners. Include how the agencies complemented each other.
- List other agencies—that were not mentioned in the article—that may have contributed to the partnership.
