The Working with Partners and Stakeholders Toolkit outlines how patients' organizations, both large and small, can work effectively with a range of partners and stakeholders.
It provides examples and guidance of how to develop long-term partnerships with these stakeholders while retaining independence. The toolkit also provides tips and information to help with some of the challenges that can occur when working with external partners.
There are materials to assist organizations in developing their infrastructure and capabilities, as well as guidance on core skills and activities.
Areas covered include raising disease awareness, advocacy, strategic planning, fundraising and effective communication.
