Abstract

An hypothesized relationship between social capital in a community and effective political governance by regional health boards in Canada is presented. A model is proposed that identifies individual-level components of social capital such as trust, commitment and identity, associational and civic participation and coolaborative problem-solving, and system-level concepts such as dense networks of horizontally-inclined associations and experience skills of communities in collaboration and problem-solving.
