Cross-sector Innovation Initiative: Environmental Scan Full Report

Resource Summary

The Cross-sector Innovation Initiative (CSII) environmental scan compiles key findings from a literature review, secondary data analysis and key informant interviews on cross-sector collaboration between the public health, healthcare and social services sectors. Findings highlight the roles that different sectors can play in collaboration, a continuum of collaboration and factors that facilitate or impede cross-sector collaboration. Facilitating and impeding factors are organized into three categories: community/environmental factors, organization factors and collaboration factors.
