Improvement Showcase Series 7: Cross Agency Collaboration

CEIH Improve­ment Show­case 19: Bet­ter Togeth­er — Cross Agency Collaboration

For near­ly 10 years the Gov­ern­ment of South Aus­trali­a’s Bet­ter Togeth­er pro­gram has been help­ing to shape effec­tive engage­ment with stake­hold­ers and the community. 

Brett Manuel, Strate­gic Engage­ment Lead with the Depart­ment for the Pre­mier and Cab­i­net’s Office for the Chief Infor­ma­tion Offi­cer, will take us through the Prin­ci­ples of Engage­ment and how they can be applied to our work, draw­ing on recent case stud­ies of col­lab­o­ra­tion and co-design.

CEIH Improve­ment Show­case 20: Inte­grat­ing Youth Men­tal Healthcare

In response to com­mu­ni­ty, con­sumer and car­er feed­back of being faced with a frag­ment­ed and siloed Youth Men­tal Health ser­vice, NAL­HN, Son­der and Ade­laide PHN part­nered with a shared vision of inte­grat­ing ser­vices in a real and effec­tive way.

The pre­sen­ta­tion pro­vides an overview of the design, imple­men­ta­tion, eval­u­a­tion, and future vision of an effec­tive inter-agency approach for a vul­ner­a­ble patient cohort.
Damon Fenech, Youth Men­tal Health Co-Lead (NAL­HN), shares some chal­lenges encoun­tered and cru­cial learn­ings from the process.
