Partnership Capability Framework: Creating Transformational Partnerships to Improve Community Health and Wellbeing

The Partnership Capability Framework has been developed collectively by Primary Care Partnerships (PCPs) across Victoria. It reflects the practice, experience, lessons and wisdom of PCP staff and partners designing, implementing and evaluating place-based initiatives across metropolitan and regional Victoria.  The framework should be relevant for any individuals and organisations that are creating or supporting collaborative partnerships to improve community health and wellbeing outcomes.

Making the Invisible Visible

Seven rural PCPs commissioned an independent review (Making the Invisible Visible) to advocate rural PCP governance groups’ vision of a future partnership model that is supportive of a place-based approach to deliver Victorian health priorities. The original audience of this review was DHHS to ensure the views of partner organisations inform decisions about the future of the PCP platform. Making the Invisible Visible has been adapted for publication and all commentary in relation to commissioning and funding bodies have been removed.
