Let’s Help Professionals Become Active Agents in Their Health Ecosystems

To bridge the gap between institutions and the people they serve, stewards are fostering the rise of new professions, such as community health workers and peer educators. Imagine if professionals—both these new ones, and existing ones like medical doctors—were trained to become active agents in transforming their health ecosystems.

Tool

Public Narrative Toolkit

We designed this toolkit to help stewards working together to transform health and well-being use the power of storytelling to motivate action, draw out emotion, and build alignment. This toolkit includes short videos, worksheets, workshop agendas, and coaching tips.

Exploring Resident Engagement for Health System Transformation

Many think of resident engagement as raising residents’ awareness of the services an organization offers, or gathering feedback on decisions already made. We’ve learned with stewards that the most effective form of resident engagement is to support active resident leadership, by creating the conditions for large groups of residents to lead and be involved in system transformation work.

Tool

Resident Engagement Practices Typology

We lay out the three outcomes those engaging in regional resident engagement practices seek to pursue, and the common practices they use to achieve those outcomes. The three are: Resident Awareness and Participation, Feedback and Input from Residents, and Active Resident Leadership. Transforming a region’s system for health requires a balance between practices of across all three outcomes.

Keep Three Approaches in Balance for Successful Resident Engagement

Learn about our Resident Engagement Practices Typology, the highly concentrated result of combining ReThink Health’s past findings with the results from interviews with over 50 stakeholders (representatives from hospital systems, philanthropies, community-based organizations, public health departments, insurers, and resident leaders) from across the country. The Typology outlines the three main types of engagement outcomes and examples of ways stewards could reach those outcomes.

The Importance of Residents’ Sense of Belonging, Trust, and Power

We know that health and well-being are about more than just treatment of illness—they are influenced by many things, including our sense of belonging, trust, and power. Here, we use illustrations and real-life examples to explore how and why stewards should apply this knowledge to resident engagement efforts.

When Designing Resident Engagement Practices, Local Context Matters

Stewards can’t just walk into a community and expect residents to engage with them their way—they need to understand local context and build credibility and trust. We draw on experience and surveys to start stewards down the path toward authentic resident engagement that works in harmony with local history.

Tool

Resident Engagement: A Toolkit

Exercises, meeting guides, videos, and more to help stewards lead their groups to plan resident engagement efforts. Among other things, they can help stewards accurately assess their resident engagement efforts, get on the same page about their goals, and figure out how to close the gap between the two.

Tool

Developing a Value Proposition Narrative: A Toolkit

ReThink Health designed this tool to walk stewards through developing a shared vision for health and well-being (based on a clear understanding of their current reality) and a value proposition (that articulates their unique ability to work toward that vision), then combining those into a value proposition narrative that can guide future action.
