Evaluating cost-effectiveness of whole systems of mental health care is inherently complex. This session provides insightful illustrations of research and improvement methodologies from rehabilitation services, integrating the full range of biopsychosocial interventions and delivered across varying settings by different teams and services. The ACER study, is uniquely designed to evaluate the clinical and cost effectiveness of inpatient rehabilitation provided by the NHS and independent sector. The national Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) programme for mental health rehabilitation programme utilises a data driven methodology enabling all areas in England to improve quality and safety and reducing unwarranted variation. Collaboration and coproduction approaches enhance the quality of services provided. Quality improvement methodologies, allow measurement and innovation, facilitating greater integration of multidisciplinary care processes to improve the experience and outcomes for everyone with complex care and support needs.
