Partnering to create a better health system

27 Sept 2022

Part­ner­ships between organ­i­sa­tions are most use­ful when the issue is com­plex, solu­tions are like­ly to cross organ­i­sa­tion­al bound­aries and when new and inno­v­a­tive ways of think­ing are needed.

But how do we build suc­cess­ful part­ner­ships to achieve these ben­e­fits? The dia­gram below high­lights the sev­en attrib­ut­es that The CEIH recog­nis­es to sup­port qual­i­ty part­ner­ships in health. Lead­ers in the health sec­tor can help part­ner­ships to flour­ish by mobil­is­ing and shar­ing resources for col­lab­o­ra­tive action, cre­at­ing space for the com­plex­i­ty of joint plan­ning, cul­ti­vat­ing shared account­abil­i­ty, and reward­ing part­ner­ship action. 

Check out our Part­ner­ship Cycle which illus­trates the key phas­es and activ­i­ties involved in build­ing qual­i­ty, sus­tain­able part­ner­ships. We look for­ward to sup­port­ing qual­i­ty part­ner­ships across the health sec­tor in South Australia.
