However, the process by which organizations have engaged partners in collaboration has varied, with few ways to measure and evaluate the success of these partnerships. Join this webinar to learn about using PARTNER for Quality Improvement, a great resource to measure where you are now, where you want to be, and gives you the data to make evidence based decisions as you develop action steps to implement change within your network.
