The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate your ability to identify stakeholders in a collaboration and your knowledge of how to communicate with them most effectively.
Instructions: In Canadian adults 65 years and older, falls are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, 20-30% of seniors experience a fall every year (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2014, p. III). You have been contracted to assist in developing a fall prevention program for adults over 65 years in the Kitchener Waterloo Region. Briefly describe the project or topic you would like to explore for your collaboration (examples include, but are not limited to, medication management, exercise, risk reduction). You must identify potential stakeholders to collaborate with you on this project. Using Gretchen Anderson’s “model for understanding different types of collaborators” (Anderson, 2019, Fig 2.1), identify the potential stakeholders, their level of contribution, possible communication channels and what types of information would be necessary for that stakeholder. Be sure you are are selecting stakeholders that will help you develop or build the program rather than implementing or running a program.
