BOTIJA, Pilar; BOTIJA, Mercedes  and  NAVARRO, Jorge. Implementation of strategies and tools of sociosanitary coordination in a health department. Gac Sanit [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.4, pp.386-389.  Epub Dec 07, 2020. ISSN 0213-9111.

The objective of this article is to show an experience of new practice as implemented by the management of a Department of Health. An organisational model is shown of sociosanitary coordination between the different levels of care and sectors, establishing synergies of the common social and health resources of the Clínico-Malvarrosa Department of Health (Valencia, Spain). After one year, five basic health councils have been set up in Primary Care and a Sociosanitary Coordination Commission composed of three subcommittees: 1) socio and health care, 2) associationism and hospital volunteering, and 3) community action and citizen participation. The proposed organisational structure has been consolidated, the actions carried out have been valued positively by the different agents involved. It has generated a network of social and health communication: interdepartmental, extra-departmental and out-of-hospital.

Keywords : Sociosanitary coordination; Vulnerability; Community action.
