Implementing models of primary health care for older adults with complex needs

Research Study

posted by WM Admin on 27 June 2013


This research programme addresses the question: What are the steps to implementing innovative integrated community-based primary health care (CBPHC) models that address the health and social needs of older adults with complex care needs?

The programme is directed at 4 levels of analysis: policy, organisation, provider, and patient and family/caregiver and will be conducted in 3 phases.

Phase 1 identifies and describes successful integrated CBPHC models; phase 2 involves in-depth case studies of exemplar models and creates a framework to explain conditions that lead to successful implementation; phase 3 evaluates the implementation of innovative CBPHC models.
