The aim of WP1, Coordination and Management, is to manage and coordinate the project adequately. To this purpose, the project coordinator team will provide technical, scientific, financial and administrative management and support. WP1 will monitor the progress to avoid deviations and will ensure ethical compliance. Moreover, this WP will guarantee smooth communication with CHAFEA and SANTE.
The overall objective of Work Package 2 is to disseminate high quality information on the Joint Action on Implementation of Digitally Enabled Integrated Person-centered Care, its deliverables and progress. Thus WP2 contributes to the development of a sustainable mechanism of advancing/providing high quality services of integrated care in Europe.
The work starts with initial communication activities to position the JA on the EU landscape, generate recognition and understanding of the project goals and ambitions. This general communication serves to attracting key stakeholder groups listed in chapter 3, especially patients and their families and employers, as well as health workforce and care provider organizations, insurance funds and policy makers. The goal is to prepare and assist engagement of stakeholders in the implementation of work packages (mainly WP5-8), not only to share the aims and objectives of the Joint Action, but to learn the needs of the end-users as well.
The specific objectives of the Work Package 2 are:
- To ensure that the results and deliverables of the Joint Action of digitally enabled integrated person-centered care are known both to general public and the stakeholders.
- To actively identify and engage stakeholders throughout the course of the project to ensure that the results of the project are applicable and appropriate to stakeholders.
- To improve knowledge, capacity and use of the JA methodologies, tools and practices by supporting in particular the work of Work Packages 4, and 5 to 8 with relevant communication and engagement tools.
Work Package 3 is responsible for evaluating JADECARE throughout its lifecycle.
More specifically, WP3 will
- Provide a methodological framework for assessing the different features of the oGPs adopted to cover the requirements and expectations,
- Assess the quality and compliance of the project process and stakeholders’ views inclusion and satisfaction,
- Perform a systematic appraisal of the quality of the transfer and implementation process, understanding, evaluating and reporting the experience of adopting oGPs in heterogeneous next adopters’ sites,
- Evaluate the reinforcement of the capacity of health authorities to organize and deliver digitally-enabled, integrated, person-centered care and
- Evaluate the transfer of the good practices (or their significant elements) from the oGPs to the “next adopters” in terms of performance, acceptance, satisfaction and sustainability.
The evaluation work package consists of 3 separate tasks, namely the Project Progress Monitoring, the Quality Assurance of Implementation and the Impact Evaluation task. Partners in charge of these tasks will work closely together with the rest of the JADECARE consortium to ensure high quality products that add value to the original Good Practices and next adopters at the policy level and verify that the action is being implemented as planned and reaches its objectives. Work Package 3 will produce the Impact Assessment Plan and the Interim and Final Evaluation Reports.
The role of WP4 is to provide support and guidance to partners from transfer work packages throughout the entire implementation process and to facilitate knowledge exchange and generation, uptake of good practices, action planning and sustainability of next adopters’ practices. To facilitate knowledge exchange and generation, a living learning community will be created, conveying tools, methodologies and knowledge resources to support effective implementation of next adopter’s practices. Partners from WP4 will, according to analyses of original good practices, produce comprehensive guiding material for defining local good practices and action plans. At the end of the project, a Blueprint on learning from good practices will be developed based on implementation experiences to support good practice transfer beyond JADECARE. A policy board will be established to support the sustainability of the practices after JADECARE and potential integration in national policies. The Policy board will also identify, co-create and build up potential EU added value of JADECARE. Ultimately, partners will identify characteristics of JADECARE practices, leading to their sustainability and potentially integration in national policies, provide lessons learnt and develop recommendations.
