After you have identified partners and built a solid partnership with community stakeholders, do your homework! Conduct an environmental scan to determine what actions should be taken within the broad health issue you want to address. The environmental scan allows you to identify gaps, trends and factors affecting the political, social, economic and legal context to help you understand the drivers of PSE change.
Scan the environment by researching grey literature (non-commercial or academic literature), program websites, legislation, funding announcements and other resources. Use the environmental scan to identify additional partners as well as supporting or opposing stakeholders you could bring to the table.
