How we are evaluating the impact of new care models on how people feel in Wessex
'How we are evaluating the impact of new care models on how people feel in Wessex' (Nov 2017)
Wessex AHSN are working in partnership with the Centre for Implementation Science, University of Southampton (CIS) and R- Outcomes Ltd to evaluate two PACS vanguards in North East Hampshire and Farnham (NEHF) and the Isle of Wight (IoW) and a number of other new services and care models across Wessex. We have completed a number of detailed evaluations, including social prescribing and integrated care team models, with a strong focus on the impact on patients, people, carers and staff.
Normalisation Process Theory (NPT) has proved helpful insights into the extent to which integrated ways of working have 500 become embedded by new care model teams. It has been used successfully with focus groups from 4 to 24. The findings have been recognised by those participating and informed team development.
