Data collected by other organizations

The project team had problems getting baseline data for the project. Although intake data were routinely collected at the community health centre and entered into a database for all Ontario community health centres, individual centres did not have access to it. As well, certain details needed for the program, such as ethnicity, place of birth and mother tongue, were not consistently collected by two of the key organizations involved: the community health centre and the breast-screening program. As a result, client intake forms needed to be revised, which took a lengthy approval process by two organizations.

Data collected over time

The team on the Mujer Sana/Comunidad Sana project gathered process baselines data to assess the level of partnership.  They used the capacity building model stages (Moyer et al., 1999).  How the partnership was developing was assessed at intervals throughout the project and again at the end.  See Healthly Women/Healthy Communities, 2003, for more information on assessing community capacity over time in the Mujer Sana/Comunidad Sana Project.
