The Small Group Meeting
Abstract Taipei City Health Bureau is promoting a “Healthy Life Community” plan since 2003. In additional to resources from Taipei City Government, this plan had also involved many efforts from sociology experts. Firstly, it implemented consulting and accompanying system in selected communities. Few years later in 2007, the accompanying system had been broken into 2-3 districts rather than one for each community. This research is to study if the relationship between promoters in the plan improves after shifting from a larger group to small groups, what are the keys to the success in partnership and if the small group works better in the plan. This research uses the 46 key promoters in “2007 Healthy Life Community Plan” who had involved in the “Small Group Meeting” from the selected 27 units as study sample. The 27 units had divided into 5 small groups and had 25 small group meetings within 5 months. This research collected information from those 46 promoters for their basic information and viewpoints about partnership, quality of current partnership and relationship other than current partnership through a pre-small group survey. 5 months later, there is an after small group test survey to learn the impacts on relationship of the small group partnership. This research uses social networking model to understand the interactive within the small group, employ NetDraw to describe the partnership structure and apply UCINET6 to analyze its Network Density. After independent sample t test, paried-samples t test and UCINET6 test, the results had been summarized as follows: 1. Small Group Meetings facilitate promoters from different units in discussing and resolving the problems encountered and further help the implementation of the Plan. 2. Small Group Meetings also encourage partnership building and significantly improve its qualities in mutual trust, conflict dealing and promise keeping. However, no significant improves in qualities of communication and alignment. 3. The promoters had benefit from the partnership through Small Group Meeting and further learned to connect it with network of other resources in the society. 4. Small Group Meetings also work like a learning organization. Promoters from different communities learned from each other’s experiences and copy the successful pattern in their own community. 5. The post Small Group Meeting survey had shown 90% positive responses on easier implementation of the plan, more adoption to their needs, and improvement in building partnership. 6. Since the Small Groups are mixed with experienced and inexperienced members, the experienced members can share and pass down their knowledge through the Small Group. In light of the above, it proves that the Small Group Meetings effectively improve in both promoting the Healthy Life Community Plan and building positive partnership within the group. Therefore, this Small Group Meeting strategy is highly recommended for every unit of the Healthy Life Community Plan.
