Evaluation of models for municipal co-financing of mental health care and health care and interdisciplinary and specialised drug treatment
Early in January 2013 the Norwegian Directorate of Health completed a work study of models for municipal co-financing of mental health and drug abuse (TSB).
Cooperation and Communication - the Key to making the IA Agreement and the Job Strategy Possible
The project goal is to provide new and important knowledge of cooperative and communicative structures between the multilevel collaborating parties working together on several areas, among them the IA Agreement and the Job Strategy.
Jobs Strategy for People with Disabilities
The Government's Jobs Strategy for People with Disabilities is aimed at people under the age of 30 with disabilities who are not included at the labour market. SINTEF has been commissioned to evaluate the implementation of the strategy. The main purpose of the evaluation is to assess how the implementation is organized by the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV), how the strategy is marketed to external actors, and how the different measures included in the strategy work in practice.
Evaluation of the IA Agreement (2010-2013)
For the second time SINTEF has now evaluated the Agreement on an Inclusive Working life (IA Agreement). The IA Agreement is a comprehensive agreement which currently comprises 60 % of Norwegian employees. The agreement is an important step towards the implementation of a tripartite collaboration in Norwegian working life. In other words, an elaborate political project is being evaluated in this report, and we are humbled by this mission. It has taken approximately 2 years to complete the evaluation.
12 years with IA Agreements - what is next?
In this project we will provide knowledge about the challenges local government faces when it comes to following up the current IA agreement, and the issues that are particularly important to focus on in order to protect local and regional authorities' interest when the current agreement expires in 2013.
Unnecessary admissions, discharge clear patients and cooperation on individual patients - the extent and characteristics of the patients
The basic data in this report is founded upon detailed surveys performed of 3 122 patients who receive 24-hour treatment in psychiatric health work or interdisciplinary spesialised treatment for substance use (TSB).
Trondheim Municipality Trailing Research Project
How can disability and absenteeism/-duration of absenteeism be reduced through a systematic and qualitatively good follow-up of people on sick leave? On behalf of the Chief Municipal Executive in Trondheim municipality and Trondheim municipal Pension Fund, Health promoting Trondheim municipality received discretionary funds from the County Governor of Sør-Trøndelag. This was granted after the amendments in the new IA agreement dated 1.7.2011 occurred, and given to get new local and general knowledge about the follow-up of people on sick leave.
Municipal Measures in Psychiatric Health Work 2011
Statistics of the 2007 – 2011 man-years and analyses of municipal variation in psychiatric health work in the municipalities.
Every 5 years since 1979 SINTEF has performed nationally extensive registries of patients in mental health care. The registries have included all patients in 24-hour institutions and under private care at the time of registry. From 1989 onwards patients under treatment at out-patient clinics and with psychologists/-psychiatrists in private practice were also included in the registries. The last registry was undertaken in 2007/2008.
