The Social Network: Examining partnership development to support knowledge translation in youth mental health

banner showing a woman, smilingPartnership development is necessary to transform systems that promotes health across multiple levels. Social network analysis (SNA) is the study of relationships among social units and can be useful to examine how partners collaborate within a network to achieve major objectives.

Join our webinar to explore how SNA was applied to the Frayme network to better understand how partnerships were being developed, as well as how these partnerships were being leveraged to achieve network objectives. We will also discuss how SNA can be a useful tool to examine relationship development within IYS partnerships.

A Q&A at the end of the webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions and/or share comments.
