    3. Today we are going to….1. Identify and assess key aspects of our collaborations2. Define appropriate collaboration levels for our shared efforts using two measures3. See how information collection and sharing occur for one organization (UME FSNE)4. Determine kinds of evaluation information we need to share with collaborators and how to best obtain and share it

    52. How can you AND YOURCOLLABORATORS work together to OBTAIN and SHARE this information?
    53. Tips for Strengthening Collaborations (HINT – Do these steps with collaborators1. Identify shared goals2. Identify what you currently do with collaborators3. Use adapted SAFAR (with evaluation column) and tables to • Identify current collaborative level • See if this matches with desired level • Identify ways you wish to strengthen the collaboration • Determine data needed to strengthen collaboration • Determine how data can be obtained, reviewed, and shared • Determine role you and collaborators can best play4. Evaluate strength each year5. Modify actions as needed
