Theme 6: Developing Collaboration
Key long term outcomes:
          A strategic approach to Public Health
Strengthened collaboration for health and wellbeing
No high level indicators have been identified at this stage for the theme ‘Developing Collaboration’. This theme addresses the need for strengthened collaboration and co-ordination across all levels of society through a ‘whole system approach’. Progress in the other indicators will provide some measure of the effectiveness of collaboration for health, however this set of indicators may need to be expanded as work progresses to monitor specific aspects of the framework or its impact. Monitoring will also be developed at local levels.
