Evaluation of Social and Emotional Wellbeing (SEWB) Integration Within the Implementation of the Baby One Program (BOP)

Indicative Funding
$30,783 over 2 years (administered by University of Western Australia - Apunipima Cape York Health Council)
The Study aims to evaluate the integration of social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) within the implementation of maternal and child health (MCH) services in primary health service (PHS) sites for women who are enrolled in the Baby One Program (BOP) and their young children (0-3 years). The study questions are: 1. what are the SEWB outcomes that primary healthcare workers, women and family members are hoping to achieve? How would we recognise them? 2, What are the enablers and barriers to implementing an integrated MCH/SEWB model of care within BOP? 3.How can we best measure improvement in SEWB amongst women and young children?
