3061.0 Building Win-Win Linkages Between Academic and Community Partners

Monday, November 9, 2009: 8:30 AM
The purpose of this session is to explore academic-practice partnerships in projects that have included community residents, agency staff, faculty, and graduate and undergraduate nursing students. Exemplars of collaboration include rural community assessment, services for families in transitional housing, dissemination of information through a health fair, and projects with a state health department and a state public health nursing organization. Discussion of the projects and experience can provide guidance for planning future effective academic-practice collaborations.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe the incorporation of graduate and undergraduate students in academic-practice partnerships. 2. Analyze planning and implementation processes used in successful academic-practice partnerships. 3. Evaluate the process and outcomes of effective collaboration between academic and practice partners.
