The CoP-RCORP Consortia originally came together when Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) each submitted and received a $200,000 grant from the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) in the U.S.
In Ohio, efforts to increase capacity and sustainability at the local level use a community of practice model. A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a craft or a profession.
Because the master consortium in Ohio uses a shared services and community of practice approach, it is important to detail how each of the five community leaders and local consortia interact and receive these shared services.
This section includes key documents related to master consortium meetings. Each includes a brief summary of what took place in the meeting, as well as downloadable agendas for each meeting including meeting minutes at the end of each agenda.
