AAOHN collaborates with and leverages the support of other organizations through joint efforts aimed at promoting health and safety in workplaces and communities.
Some of AAOHN's existing alliances and collaborative activities include:
Under this partnership, AAOHN and NIOSH through collaborative efforts and expertise identify workplace safety and health research needs, translate research into practice and promote the health and protection of workers. AAOHN and NIOSH have a mutual commitment to creating a culture of safety and health, and maintaining safe and healthful work environments. Both organizations are committed to working together to network with interested parties to address the second decade National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), Healthy People Initiative and other integral projects.
AAOHN and NIOSH will work cooperatively through the Partnership to provide outreach, communication, and professional development opportunities regarding occupational safety and health, and facilitate the transfer and implementation of effective workplace illness and injury prevention measures.
AAOHN is a member of the Alliance, a coalition of nursing organizations united to create a strong voice for nurses. The Alliance provides a forum for identification, education, and collaboration building on issues of common interest to advance the nursing profession. AAOHN participates in the Alliance’s Nurse in Washington Internship (NIWI) with an annual member scholarship award program.
The National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR) is a broad coalition working to fight, and ultimately end, the hepatitis B and hepatitis C epidemics. We seek an aggressive response from policymakers, public health officials, medical and health care providers, the media, and the general public through our advocacy, education, and technical assistance.
NVHR believes an end to the hepatitis B and C epidemics is within our reach and can be achieved through addressing stigma and health disparities, removing barriers to prevention, care and treatment, and ensuring respect and compassion for all affected communities.
The Adult Vaccine Access Coalition (AVAC) was formed to raise awareness, improve access, and increase utilization of vaccines among adults. Near universal access to immunizations for children has been one of the greatest public health accomplishments of the 20th century. AVAC seeks to achieve the same level of success when it comes to immunizations among adults. The goal of AVAC is to foster an inclusive partnership of organizations to inform and engage federal policymakers in working towards common legislative and regulatory solutions that will strengthen and enhance access to and utilization of adult immunization services across the health care system. Positive collaborations around the adult vaccine space are already happening. AVAC builds upon this work through consistent and sustained education and advocacy in Washington, DC. By working together the partnership organizations will improve adult immunization rates.
