The Annapolis Coalition was commissioned by the National Coordinating Office of the Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network to conduct a review of learning collaboratives. Learning collaboratives have been widely used in general healthcare and in behavioral health as a strategy for quality improvement and implementation of evidence-based practices. This review was to assist technical assistance providers in better understanding and using this approach to change management. It addresses these questions:
- What are learning collaboratives?
- What is the evidence for their effectiveness?
- What are their key elements?
- How have they been applied in behavioral health?
- What are best practices for use in behavioral health?
The review concludes with a summary of key findings and a set of recommendations for technical assistance providers, a list of resources and a webinar. Read the summary, download the reports and watch the webinar here.
