DESCRIPTION

Building partnerships is a crucial aspect of implementing community-based care effectively. Collaboration between stakeholders, including healthcare providers, community organizations, and academic institutions ensure that resources are maximized and comparative advantages leveraged to improve health outcomes in the community. Universities can be powerful partners in community-based care through training healthcare professionals, providing direct care, and conducting contextually based and engaged research. This presentation will discuss initiatives and examples from Qatar University on how universities can be a strong link in community-based care in areas such as tobacco control and mental health.
