Turning theory into practice: Pre-implementation

Questions that the toolkit will aim to help you answer

How do we go about reviewing our existing policies and procedures?

How do we agree an information sharing protocol?

How do we agree and implement an information sharing agreement?

How do we record our information sharing protocols or agreements?

What will we have at the end of this stage?

By the end of pre-implementation, the partnership will have a clear plan for implementing the agreed design, including documented policies and procedures, clarity about roles and responsibilities, resource implications and communications within the partnership and its member organisations.

Why is it important?

Pre-implementation, as the name suggests, is about turning the agreed design into reality. Organisations may need to allocate resources, ratify information sharing protocols or agreements, approve new policies and procedures, or implement training plans.  Pre-implementation is about putting those practicalities into place.
