As a key partner in the development of a Traffic Safety Center in the western United States, Prevention Institute was involved in designing an interdisciplinary approach that includes public health, engineering, city planning, law enforcement, optometry, and medicine to provide focused research, training, and practice in traffic safety.
Collaboration Multiplier is an interactive framework and tool for analyzing collaborative efforts across fields. It is designed to guide an organization to a better understanding of which partners it needs and how to engage them. It is also designed for organizations that already work together, so they may identify activities to achieve a common goal, identify missing sectors that can contribute to a solution, delineate partner perspectives and contributions, and leverage expertise and resources. Using Collaboration Multiplier can help lay the foundation for shared understanding and common ground across all partners.
Based on the understanding that sectors often have different understandings of issues and divergent reasons for engaging in the same effort, Collaboration Multiplier helps partners navigate differences to find approaches that advance their objectives simultaneously. Collaboration Multiplier can be used at different stages of collaboration, and is designed to complement and inform Prevention Institute's Spectrum of Prevention, which promotes multi-level strategic action as a best practice for primary prevention.
