Improving the Effectiveness of Evidence-Based Practices: A case study example to increase the labour force participation of people experiencing mental health and addiction issues

Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.

Overview

Helen will present findings from her doctoral thesis investigating the reasons behind the variation in the performance of evidence-based practices in vocational rehabilitation for people living with mental health and addiction issues.

She will explain how to operationalise a new implementation framework to guide researchers, policymakers, and practitioners on how to improve the delivery of these practices and ultimately support more people living with mental health and addiction illnesses to achieve their employment aspirations.

She will discuss how this framework can be applied across a number of evidence-based practices.
