Self-Evaluation Tool for Action in Partnership

Cette ressource est aussi disponible en français.

The Canada Research Chair in Community Approaches and Health Inequalities (CACIS) (French) conducts research inform and support practices to improve health equity. [1] CACIS developed this Self-Evaluation Tool for Action in Partnership to allow partners working collaboratively on a specific project to evaluate their partnership with respect to six conditions necessary for effective partnership work [2]:

  1. Inclusion of a range of perspectives relevant to the issue;
  2. Stakeholder involvement in strategic decisions early on;
  3. Stakeholder engagement in negotiating and influencing decisions;
  4. Stakeholder commitment to the project;
  5. Equal distribution of power among stakeholders in the partnership; and,
  6. Arrangements that help build collective action.

CASIS designed the tool so that partners can complete the 18-item self-evaluation individually for later discussion and/or compilation of group results, complete as a group. [2] Users compile their results themselves, though there is also an online, French-language tool that compiles results automatically. 

The tool can be completed as a one-time evaluation to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a partnerships and areas where consensus is lacking, or longitudinally to track the amelioration or deterioration of the partnership over time. [2
