Practical experience to meet your needs
HealthSense has in depth knowledge and practical experience with developing and implementing health strategy (e.g. frameworks, strategic plans), policy and programs. Having worked across Australian government jurisdictions, non-government organisations and providing consultancy services locally and internationally, HealthSense has the breath and depth of experience to guide and value-add to your health strategy, policy and program development and implementation needs.
We have particular experience in the development of Models of Care and Models of Service Delivery for health conditions.
How we can help
HealthSense can provide advice about best-practice processes for the development of strategy, policy, and programs to ensure the end products are appropriate to the local setting and the broader environment. To do this, we adopt a comprehensive consultative process, consider existing policy and strategy and use contemporary implementation science tools to guide our processes, such as the Theoretic Domains Framework, Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research, and the Behaviour Change Wheel.
We help clients tackle challenges like:
- Defining the purpose of a strategy or policy
- Aligning a health policy or program with contemporary evidence
- Identifying achievable priorities and performance indicators
- Structuring a strategy or policy to ensure its clear, inclusive and meaningful to end users
- Plan a phased approach to implement a policy or program
