Reforming Health Systems to Better Manage Chronic Care: The Serious and Continuing Illness Policy and Practice Study (SCIPPS)
The Serious and Continuing Illness Policy and Practice Study is an NHMRC-funded project led by researchers from the Menzies Centre for Health Policy at the University of Sydney and ANU. It set out to improve the outcomes for those suffering from chronic illness through qualitative and quantitative studies of their experience with the health system, focusing on Western Sydney and the ACT. It used the results of these studies to evaluate interventions, especially at health system level, that aimed to improve the management of chronic illness and reduce unnecessary hospitalization.
