ABOUT DVA'S ALLIED HEALTH TREATMENT CYCLE ARRANGEMENTS

In October 2019 the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) implemented an allied health treatment cycle arrangement.

The purpose of the 'treatment cycle' is to improve quality of care and outcomes for clients. The aim of the 'treatment cycle' is to improve coordinated primary care and communication between general practitioners, allied health providers and DVA clients. 

More information about the treatment cycles can be found on the DVA website www.dva.gov.au/

EVALUATION OF DVA'S

ALLIED HEALTH TREATMENT CYCLE ARRANGEMENTS

The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the implementation of the treatment cycle arrangements for allied health referrals and determine whether these arrangements contribute to intended outcomes for DVA clients and health providers.

QUT is currently independently evaluating the allied health treatment cycle arrangements through an online survey and some follow up interviews. This evaluation is funded by the Department of Veterans' Affairs. 

What will be involved

  1. The evaluation will involve an online survey which will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Participants cannot be identified in any way and their decision to participate is entirely voluntary.
     

  2. After completing the survey, participants will be invited to participate in follow up interviews to discuss their opinions and experiences with the evaluation team. Please note that not all participants need to be involved in the interviews. 

    Both the survey and interview are entirely voluntary, and all responses will be subject to privacy and confidentiality. Participants may choose to participate and may choose to withdraw from the evaluation at any time.

Who can be involved

QUT is seeking to recruit participants from three stakeholder groups:

  1. DVA clients who have transitioned to the treatment cycle arrangements;
     

  2. General practitioners who have referred DVA clients under the treatment cycle arrangements; and 
     

  3. Allied health providers who have provided care to DVA clients under the treatment cycle arrangements. 

 

If you are a DVA client or health provider that has transitioned to the treatment cycle arrangements QUT would love to hear from you to understand your opinions and experiences.
