Collaboration issues
  Funding
  Territorialism
    Seem to have lost main goa
    See      a e ost a goal
    Other groups seen as threats, not partners
      p              y
  Non profit mentality
  Lack of cooperation from executive directors
                   Results
                   Res lts
Collaboration Issues
  No consistent training among organizations

  Not enough communication between groups

  Formation of new agencies increases
  competitiveness

  Some agencies are not clearly defined
    must identify their type of outreach and their goals
                  Results
                  Res lts

Suggestions for Collaboration
  MORE FUNDING

  Make interagency collaboration a grant
  requirement


  A central location for information sharing
    Cleveland Department of Public Health
                 Results
                 Res lts

Periodic, field specific network meetings to
                       ,
share outreach ideas, learn from each
other and share resources
  All groups are connected through the
  Regional Advisory Group, but do not feel this
  as a appropriate forum
                Discussion
                Disc ssion
Nine of ten agencies would like increased
collaboration
  Must understand why this currently does not happen


Specific collaboration standards should be
written into grants
  Make collaboration and coordination a funding
  requirement
                Discussion
                Disc ssion
Suggestions
  Implementation of a “hub” or central information
  sharing system
  6-8 outreach worker meetings per year
  Establishment of a cross agency Listserv
  Centralized training
  HIV Outreach Service Manuel to be used as a training
  tool

These efforts would have to be voluntary and do
    g          p     p
not guarantee participation
             Limitations

Answers received may not have genuinely
                         g
demonstrated the feelings and ideas
Possibility of inadequate or missing data
received
  Interviews held during work hours; many
  respondents breezed through answers
  Interviewees may not have been well versed
  in all aspects of the questionnaire

I hope this project continues!
