Rural and regional communities
This project aims to produce a program evaluation of SSCOT (Specialist Support Coordination Team), formerly known as PIRCCO (Partners in Recovering Clinical Coordination Model) using a multi-method, multi-component methodology.
This will include a comparative policy analysis; a qualitative analysis of the experience of the service; a quantitative activity outcome data comparison with national and state benchmarks; and questionnaire surveys with consumers, carers, stakeholders and service partners to investigate the effectiveness, social validity, experience of care and the barriers/enablers of care.
The project is focussed in Dubbo and the surrounding rural and remote areas serviced by the SSCOT team.
The evaluation is expected to show what has worked well for the SSCOT program and what requires further improvement.
