Project Status: Archive

Research Areas: Disability
Funding Agency: Northcott

Northcott and SPRC partnered to develop evaluation capacity for the Aboriginal child and family disability therapy research project in a metropolitan and rural area. The project used mixed methods responsive to the preferences of the local communities, including project reporting data (family characteristics, service use, outcomes, cost); and qualitative material from interviews, groups, observation or narratives. SPRC conducted the evaluation with Northcott to provide research training through shadowing with researchers and Northcott staff.
