Translating evidence into policy and services

The problem
The problem …

  • Mental disorders are a leading cause of disease burden

  • We do not know the best way to configure our mental health service system

  • For an equitable, efficient and sustainable system, we require knowledge about:

    • The extent and distribution of disorder epidemiology and burden

    • Effective and cost-effective interventions to reduce burden

    • How to organise these interventions in an equitable way

    • How to adapt policy settings to move from the current to the optimal service system


Previous work in this area
Previous work in this area …

ACE Mental Health

  • Concluded a more efficient and cost-effective system would require reallocation of funds between interventions, between disorders and between service providers, as well as different funding mechanisms

    Tolkien II

  • Concluded that reorganising the system using a stepped care model with a 30% increase in budget could treat 60% more people across 15 major disorders and produce a 90% increase in health gain


However
however…

  • Evidence and policy-maker engagement is not enough

  • Policy-makers think more in terms of service platforms than disorder level interventions

    • epidemiology across the lifespan is often not considered

    • The intervention evidence is fragmented

    • cost-effectiveness alone rarely influences priority-setting

    • integrative interventions cannot compete with service silos


Our cre
Our CRE …

… develop an integrated evidence base for a model service system, recognising and exploiting the realities within which policy and planning take place


Our goals
Our goals…

  • Design a model mental health service system for Australia that would optimally reduce the burden of mental disorders

  • Analyse how that model differs from the existing service system, and what policy levers governments can use to move to the new model

  • Develop a knowledge transfer strategy to translate the evidence into policy and practice

Components of cremsi
Components of CREMSI

  • Research program with 3 streams:

    • Stream 1: Priority setting for cost-effective mental health interventions and service platforms

    • Stream 2: Mental health system planning to maximise the delivery of evidence-based services

    • Stream 3: Translation of evidence-based service system planning into policy

    • Knowledge translation strategy

    • Capacity building strategy


Assemble burden and cost effectiveness data for interventions by disorder

Our work plan

Assemble burden and cost-effectiveness data for interventions by disorder


Our work plan
Our work plan

  • Develop a service platform taxonomy

  • Translate cost-effectiveness data from the intervention level to service platform level

  • Describe the service system in which disorders are prevented or treated on the platform that equitably and efficiently reduces maximum burden

  • Developing planning targets for the optimal service model

Knowledge translation and c apacity building to ensure
Knowledge translation and mechanisms in the Australian contextcapacity building to ensure:

  • The CRE is informed by expertise and priorities of end-users

  • Multimodal dissemination of findings

  • Monitoring the uptake of CRE outputs into policy instruments

  • A research intensive exchange program

  • Targeted integration into tertiary courses and seminar series
