Engaging Emergent Strategies in Facilitating Multi-Stakeholder Health Equity Collaboration
Across the U.S. healthcare system, groups of people representing varying perspectives are coming together to advance health equity by improving unjust health outcomes and addressing the structures that perpetuate them. This complex work requires collaboration in teams that include multiple types of stakeholders in public health, healthcare, social services, and community-based organizations. A report from Advancing Health Equity: Leading Care, Payment and Systems Transformation provides recommendations for multi-stakeholder teams to advance health equity. The authors, from the Center for Health Care Strategies and the University of Chicago, draw from the work of the Emergent Strategy Ideation Institute on relationship building and creativity as modes of coming together to make change.
