Program Overview

Faculty discusses how and why collaboration has become such a buzz word and why it is one of the key competencies in public health. The discussion explains how collaboration is not about everyone getting along, but allowing for and sometimes encouraging conflict.

Faculty also address how collaboration relates to the Ten Essential Public Health Services and why it is at the core of a major paradigm change in public health. They cover the essential elements to collaboration – one of which may surprise you – and the skills needed to be successful. Faculty discuss current trends that public health is facing and how those are expanding the need for community-based collaborations and, finally, how collaboration is an essential element in improving public health performance.
