Community Partnership Toolkit
Building on existing work from AOHT organizations*, we’ve curated tools and templates into a one-stop toolkit for organizations looking to start or strengthen their partnership and engagement activities with patients, clients, family members, caregivers, individuals with lived and living experience, and other citizens.
*We would like to acknowledge and thank Sault Area Hospital, a member of the Algoma OHT, for their substantial contributions to this toolkit.
The resources in this toolkit are free to share, download, customize, and use. We have added a credit footer to each template and kindly request that you keep this footer or acknowledge the AOHT Community Partnership Toolkit in some other way if you are using our work.
This toolkit was created to save you time as you start or strengthen your community partnership and engagement program. If you have used any of our tools or templates, we would love to hear from you. Your feedback will help us evaluate the reach and functionality of the toolkit.
For survey material, your team may want to replicate this work in Survey Monkey, Google Forms, or another platform. For support evaluating process, consider using the Public and Patient Engagement Evaluation Tool.
For support evaluating impact, visit the Engage with Impact Toolkit.
