Pulse Check Surveys

Regional multisector partnerships for health are one of the major means by which stewards across the United States come together to transform the system that produces health and well-being.

So it’s important to know:

  • What is the nature of the work stewards do in these partnerships?
  • How does stewards’ multisector partnership work develop over time? How do they advance their work?
  • What barriers to advancement do they face?
  • How do stewards finance their multisector partnership work?

ReThink Health took on these questions in our 2016 Pulse Check Survey. Before that, in 2014, we took on the first question (after confirming that stewards were indeed creating partnerships of this nature). In 2020, we’ll conduct a third survey (check back here, or subscribe to our eblasts, for details). Since stewards’ work is emergent, we do our best to get some longitudinal data while allowing space to begin capturing how the work evolves.
