This slide and the next one list the main categories of stakeholders involved in change efforts in Minnesota and Massachusetts. Different parts of the process call for more prominent roles for certain kinds of stakeholders. For example, if state legislation is involved, legislators often want to hear from people directly affected, such as patients, clients, employers, and CHWs themselves, rather than researchers and executive branch officials. The list includes:
