Summaries of evaluation work

Below we share learning from ihub improvement work supported by the Evidence and Evaluation for Improvement Team.

Evaluation of a new service model →
This work describes the support we offered to Health and Social Care (HSC) Moray with the evaluation of a new community nursing model piloted in the Forres area that embeds a collaborative way of working between housing and healthcare.

Evaluating personal outcomes focused ways of working →

Here, we bring together learning from evaluation of personal outcome focused interventions to provide some practical guidance for those planning, commissioning and delivering personal outcomes focused approaches and seeking to monitor and evaluate this work. We also describe our evaluation support for the Midlothian wellbeing service.


The cost of a Homecare Package in place of hospital admission for frail older people →

ihub supported the cost analysis of the introduction of an intervention designed to address the delay in hospital discharge for older people with frailty. The introduction of the Homecare Package meant that frail older people could be discharged to go home, whereas they would have otherwise been admitted to a geriatric ward.
