Description:
The aim of this study is to provide a baseline for the adult mental health teams in terms of their current profiling and key influences that affect their performance so as to inform policy and practice and areas for further enquiry. This was undertaken with a mixed method approach that profiles and identifies significant associations between key aspects of team working and effectiveness in a national study and a Case Study of selected teams’ perceptions of determinants of effectiveness. Team effectiveness is externally assessed by relevant local health managers and is reflected in the experience of the service users associated with the Case Study teams. In the absence of specific activity data for the teams, longitudinal trends in proxy data of inpatient admissions data for catchment teams’ throughput is examined by Region, former Health Board/ERHA and Institutional level.
