Leading Change: A Case Study in Community Engagement


This case study simulates the community health improvement process, including working with stakeholders from various disciplines, such as hospitals, public health, and community-based organizations. This resource is typically delivered as a day-long workshop with two facilitators each working with a 6-7 member group. This material could also be redesigned as Team Based Learning (TBL) for a large classroom, modularized and delivered over a longer period of time, or restructured for distance-based teams.
