DD Network Event October 2013 – Care Co-ordination Focus Group Feedback Step 3 of the Leeds DD Care Co-ordination protocol focuses on models of care and care co-ordination DD Care Pathway Evaluation 2013 identified - The term care co-ordination is synonymous with the Care Programme Approach (CPA) People may often be accessing services that CPA doesn’t apply to e.g. drug/alcohol, voluntary sector mental health and mental health housing support When people are not under CPA the monitoring of joint working is often informal
Focus Group Question 1.Alternative to “Care Co-ordination” 2.How is care co-ordinated when people are not under CPA? 3.How should care be co-ordinated when people are not under CPA? 4.How could the Dual Diagnosis Network + Lead Practitioners role be improved in the future?
1 - Alternatives to Label ‘Care co-ordination’
Leeds Dual Diagnosis Care Co-ordination Protocol is due for review in 2014 Rename ‘Joint Working Protocol’ Use Term Lead Worker/Agency
2 - How is care co-ordinated when people are not under CPA?. If multiple agencies are involved often no one takes the lead to co-ordinate care and services can feel disjointed No standards or co-ordination across services – difficult to liaise to arrange meetings Currently very fragmented Poor planning A culture change is needed in some services to allow liaison / conversations More respect for each other
3 - How should care be co-ordinated when people are not under CPA? Better pre-planning to identify most appropriate person Joint support planning A formalised joint working plan/protocol Shared systems/ IT system available to all Must have SU at the centre and they should be as involved as possible Include those most involved i.e. families and carers
4 - How could the Dual Diagnosis Network + Lead Practitioners role be improved in the future? Opportunities to develop/map innovative practice and share information “Knowledge bank” for the role of practitioners Consult/engage with families, carers or SU Using current resources better – supporting link working and joint care Deciding what incidence of dual diagnosis within a service warrants a level 3 practitioner
