Review and Consolidation of Innovative Workforce Models and Activity in the Mental Health Sector

Review and Consolidation of Innovative Workforce Models and Activity in the Mental Health Sector

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services engaged HealthConsult to undertake the Review and Consolidation of Innovative Workforce Models and Activity in the Mental Health Sector. The project involved the review of the available program documentation, data and the relevant national and international literature concerning innovation in mental health workforce models and activity, and preparation of a consolidation report incorporating review data, information, tools and resources. The project also included the development of six case studies of workforce innovation exemplars based on analysis of a Call for Submissions from the sector and site visits to auspice organisations. Following this, HealthConsult organised and facilitated a Mental Health Workforce Innovation Day to showcase the case studies. A final report was then developed on the project which details the information gained and includes the presentation of resource materials derived from the project. The project commenced in May 2017 and is due for completion in December 2017.
