Evidence to inform communication between emergency department (ED) clinicians and public health agencies is limited. During emerging health threats, communication is urgent. This qualitative study explores current practices in communication at the local level in Ontario. Results indicate that challenges relate to coordination and differences in work environments across sectors. Strategies for effective communication include the development of partnerships, specific methods of communication, and roles and relationship-building. This research indicates that relationships are central to effective communication between public health agencies and ED clinicians.  The analyzed results are synthesized as a framework of strategies that can be actioned in practice.
