  • Description
    "In this commentary, we outline strategies we have found successful in aligning health education and training with local health needs in ways that demonstrate socially accountable outcomes. Challenges encountered through this process ... have placed demands on us to establish and build on open and collaborative working relationships. Some of our successes can the attributed to evidence-informed decision-making. Other successes result from less tangible but no less important factors. We argue that both rational and "accidental" factors are significant - and that strategic use of "accidental" features may prove most significant in our efforst to ensure the delivery of high-quality health care to our communities."
