Abstract

Community partnerships are important aspects of improving individual well-being and decreasing health disparities leading to better health outcomes and improved equity. Marion County benefits from Oregon State University Extension Service Family and Community Health (FCH) division’s ability to develop these community partnerships. The aim of this project was to develop a standardized and sustainable decision guide worksheet for improving the decision making process on beneficial partnerships with an emphasis on health equity in the community setting. The guide was created based on multiple proven framework models for decision making with a health equity inclusion focus. The decision guide was tailored to meet the needs of FCH through simplification to allow for practical use. The project is in the early phase of being tested by FCH for proof of concept with the plan to extend use to other County’s FCH divisions once established.
