Working in partnerships has become the norm in health promotion however do we really know if we are working effectively and making a difference? What tools should we use? What are the benefits of building evaluation into our planning cycles and how can the results be used to strengthen our partnerships and our impact?

This fireside chat will answer these questions and more by reviewing key approaches to evaluating health promotion partnerships and describing existing tools that can be used to gather information on partnership functioning.

The benefits of evaluation and lessons learned will be explored through two case examples of substance misuse prevention partnerships in Ontario.

Participants will also have an opportunity to share their experiences with partnership evaluation and identify ways to overcome common barriers to implementation at a community level.
