Although interagency community collaboration has been suggested to increase programming and decrease costs, theoretical understanding for this in nursing is limited. A conceptual framework for community interagency collaboration is described that depicts collaboration as a function of environmental conditions, organizational situations, and task characteristics. Transactional patterns including intensity, formalization, interrelational patterns, and structured relationships are discussed as are outcomes pertaining to organizations, interorganizational relations, clients, and communities.
