Tuesday, 7 April Youth Perspectives on CAPA Bridget Greaney Youth Consumer Consultant Capital & Coast District Health Board
Tuesday, 7 April Sight seeing guide (what I will cover) − How youth have been involved − What youth think of CAPA − What youth consumer advisors think of CAPA − Some positive statistics − Final thoughts
Tuesday, 7 April Putting the ‘P’ in HELPFUL − How does it sound? − What sounds good and bad about doing things this way? − How would it be to have an assessment done by someone who may not be your on-going worker? − Would this be a better way of getting into services than the way they entered them? CAPA model explained to Youth Consultation Group
Tuesday, 7 April Problem Refer to CAMHS Letter is sent to the family Choice Appointment Is CAMHS for you? Yes? No? Follow up letter sent and contact ended Partnership What things sound good and bad about this?
Tuesday, 7 April From the horses mouth “I go to appointments and think that this is just my time to talk about negative stuff. It would be nice to be looking at my goals and what is going well. It would be more positive”
Tuesday, 7 April Like: − Dealing with issues identified by the family and young person − Match-up between family and clinician based on what the needs are − Support put in place while you wait for an appointment Dislike: − Its hard to deal with choice when you are sick “If I had the choice to go to a service and use it when I was really sick I wouldn’t have gone”
Tuesday, 7 April What about the one off Choice meeting? As long as you know it is going to happen it is ok Bonus – “Its good because you know that if you don’t like them you won’t have to see them again” But If you like them and they are the right person, you should have the option of working with them anyway.
Tuesday, 7 April What’s in a name? ‘Choice’ is good because it explains what your first appointment is all about. ‘Partnership’ is not so good because it doesn’t really mean anything (to youth). However, we couldn’t come up with a better name than ‘Partnership’
Tuesday, 7 April The Insiders (Youth Consumer Advisors) What we like: − Reduced waiting time, choice for time and place of first appointment, gives families the chance to hear about other services that could help them, gives a clear idea of the journey through a service − It fits well with consumer participation
Tuesday, 7 April A few statistics Consumer view on how our services work post-CAPA implementation year olds (N=53) − 66% found Choice appointment useful − 83% feel they have been given enough info − 100% feel well treated, that their views were taken seriously − 100% feel people are working together to help them
Tuesday, 7 April year olds (N=12) − 60% found Choice appointment useful − 77% feel they have been given enough info − 100% feel well treated, that their views were taken seriously − 83% feel people are working together to help them Looks like we are meeting the CAPA goals of creating a therapeutic alliance, focusing on patient goals, information sharing and partnership!
Tuesday, 7 April The final word CAPA is ‘choice’... And a much better way to enter the service
