Partnerships and collaborative advantage in primary care reform

Interest in partnerships and collaboration in primary health is growing. Primary health reforms globally have embraced ideas about partnerships, collaboration and alliances, indicating a shift from individual care models to systems thinking. The literature uses the terms collaboration, partnership, alliance, coalition and joint-working inter- changeably. Partnerships between professionals, across sectors and including consumers, strengthen the capacity of organisations to improve both individual and population health and reduce health risks.
