Getting Started with Partnership for Health

We strongly recommend that clinics consider the following guidelines prior to requesting training:

  • Clinics should anticipate at least a 4 to 6 month start-up
  • Identify resources to reproduce and print program materials. 
  • View the intervention posters.
  • Identify a "champion" or site coordinator for the intervention who can begin establishing clinic "buy-in" and commitment to the adoption of PfH and integration of prevention messages as an essential component of patient care.
  • Prepare clinic staff for a three part training process that includes:
    • Orientation of staff to the intervention (2-4 weeks before training)
    • 4-5 hour intervention training
    • Booster training (4-6 weeks after the training)
  • Plan for and conduct program monitoring and evaluation.
  • Review the Partnership for Health Starter Kit Guide that includes a wealth of planning information.
