Supporting collaboration to create healthier communities
The presentation will start with an overview of the importance of collaboration for Health in All Policies approaches and include a short discussion about identifying non-traditional partners for collaborative work. The presentation will then describe root cause mapping as a tool and activity that can be used to develop a common understanding of the problems partners face, identify how each partner’s work connects to public health issues, and establish shared goals. Root cause mapping is a structured process for identifying key upstream factors contributing to community health problems, which can help users identify methods for intervening in these underlying factors and promoting improved outcomes. After a short overview, in small facilitated groups, participants will have the opportunity to create a root cause map, identify possible partners and actions, and learn how root cause mapping can be used in a range of situations and with a variety stakeholders.
