Leading successful partnerships

The Q community is driven by enabling collaboration and improvement in practice and we rely on partnerships to make that happen. Our approach to partnership working is grounded in both academic research and our experience working with national and regional partners across the UK and Ireland.

We have published Leading successful partnerships, a guide to support health and care leaders. This focuses on getting the essentials right in four areas:

  1. Clear and common goals
  2. Transparent and equitable power distribution
  3. Adequate resourcing
  4. Positive culture and strong relationships

This guide will be particularly useful for senior leaders partnering with organisations to collaborate and solve health and care challenges and to support the uptake of innovation and improvement.
