Project Type - Disability

Description

Health Outcomes International were engaged by The Department of Human Services (DHS), Disability Services Division (DSD) to undertake a review of existing service models in place both nationally and internationally for the provision of Disability Specialist (Behaviour Intervention) Services.
On the basis of the service model review, a discussion paper was developed that outlined three potential options for the documentation and delivery of a statewide service model for disability specialist service provision in Victoria.
The methodology included:

  • Consultation with a range of stakeholders both within Australia and Internationally
  • Review of the literature
  • Development of criterion on which to undertake assessment of all service models
  • Working closely with a Project Advisory Group at key stages to discuss findings and possible future directions.
