Notes for Decisonmakers

Our project has reviewed our work, feedback from participants, and evaluation data and created guidance for those who might want to commission or host arts-based training for health workers  - in addiction and recovery, or working with other groups.


These guidelines were developed to help decision makers know the main findings of our transnational cooperation in order to integrate the “ART and SOCIAL CHANGE” training in the Continuing Professional Development programmes. The document is intended for policy makers and influencers, health commissioners, third sector organisations, trainers, funders, practitioners, arts organisations, researchers, stakeholders and others with an interest in the development and evaluation of arts programmes in health setting. The document has three parts. In the first part the document is reporting the main project activities done, the methodology used and how to replicate it. The second part of the Guidelines is dedicated to the key components of project delivery, including the nature of the intervention, the target engaged directly and indirectly,  the activities have been developed, the resources needed to support it, the procedure followed for quality assurance and the outcomes achieved. In the third part - recommendations and good practice from all partners. 

To ensure the documents can be read by the decision-makers in each country, we have produced them in the local language as well as the official project language (English). To ensure they provide the greatest possible learning, we also decided that the middle section of these documents needed to reflect how training was shaped in each country to respond to the context there. The way the project was delivered related to the local context in each place - points that are important for decisionmakers in each place to understand. Please find the documents for each country on this page.
