Conduct scan of national best practices from other AMCs around partnership ideals and synthesize best practices for discussion and reference
Take inventory of internal (UI COM and UIC) programs that work directly on partnering and/or community needs and determine how we can most effectively collaborate with each: 1) build a resource list of all internal programs along with a short description of their focus areas and key contacts 2) Invite groups to presents a brief overview of their mission, services, principles, and intended outcomes 3) establish a summary of key themes, principles, and best practices emanating from these programs around partnership and community needs 4) determine what we feel comfortable endorsing on behalf of COM 5) establish areas of alignment and path for ongoing collaborations with programs.
Establish a focus group of current (key) partners to work with COM to further brainstorm ideals on partnering
Leveraging internal and external best practice along with community partner input, develop a written proposal for a more comprehensive and inclusive definition of partnership for COM along with proposed partnership ideals
Collaborate with our other strategic planning committees to consider/adapt expectations for partner commitments based on type of partner relationship, e.g. medical affiliates versus community-based (as partnerships, we may insist on certain norms, but it won’t be a one-size fits all partnership relationship framework)
Define milestones and metrics around community engagement principles and design a process to assess UICOM’s on-going progress
Critically review and adopt definition(s) of collaborative practice and “high value” (or high performing) teams as standard for UI COM b) Develop strategy to disseminate Tactic 7a information to internal stakeholders (faculty, staff, trainees), internal partners (UIHealth & Milesquare) & external partners
Inventory and evaluate the quality of interprofessional education and interprofessional practice across UICOM
Align strategy for IPE with existing healthcare delivery partners and other educational/academic units, seek additional partners for IPE
Create opportunities & identify resources to develop new or reconfigure existing group into high value teams/high value collaborative practice. Structure training, evaluation (using quadruple aim) and “reward around development and performance”
