Staff Sharing Arrangements for Local Public Health

This report offers a series of case studies on shared staffing arrangements in local public health organizations. These cases, which are located in Massachusetts, Iowa and Oregon, were selected for study based on a national environmental scan of arrangements in place and with attention to variation in location, size of jurisdictions, and type of local government. The shared positions covered in these case studies run the gamut from health directors to physicians, nurses, inspectors, social workers, and administrative staff.
