Establishing successful partnerships is the foundation for many services in the healthcare industry. Some partnerships are formed to gain knowledge and expertise in a new field of operation or service, and some partnerships are formed to share resources. Other partnerships are formed to conduct participatory research to contribute to short-term change or long-term progress, such as policy creation.
