Evaluation of Services to CaLD Women with Co Morbidity

  • Research program: Justice health
  • Project status: Completed
  • Start date:
  • Expected end date: August 2009
  • Completion date: August 2010
  • Funded by: Womens Health Services
  • Lead organisation:

The proposed objectives are to provide an evaluation of existing sound practice in Western Australia and elsewhere of the provision of services to CaLD women, with dependant children, who are experiencing co-existing mental health and alcohol and other drug problems. The aim of the research is to better inform the development of evidence-based training resources to improve the capacity of Women's Health Services Consortium to deliver services to this client group, and to enhance the capacity for self-evaluation of services. The evaluation will develop a suitable methodology to achieve its aims and objectives, and in so doing will: consult with key stakeholders and women's health services staff delivering services to CaLD women with comorbidity issues to determine the scope of the evaluation; identify appropriate process and outcome measures against which the services will be evaluated; provide feedback on these measures throughout the life of the project, and, provide a final report
