Chapter 5: Fostering Partnership

In this video, Aligning Forces for Quality communities share tips for fostering partnership:

  • Make it a partnership, not a parallel process.
  • Give participants “get-to-know-you” time with each other.
  • Create an atmosphere of equality and mutual respect from the outset.
  • Signal to participants they’re part of your team—give them ID badges, or put up a photo of your patient advisors in the waiting room.
