Scottish Government SDS Research Project

The Scottish Government has commissioned a Research Project on SDS to consider:
1. An Evaluability Assessment of SDS – to review and refine existing draft logic models for SDS and theory of change; develop, in collaboration with stakeholders, indicators and research questions linked to short-term and intermediate outcomes for SDS.

2.  Research on the economics/resource implications of SDS – a requirement for better evidence to widen and deepen understanding of the cost-effectiveness of SDS and of the barriers and enablers (including attitudes) to achieving cost-effective outcomes

3.  Research on Option 2 in practice: 

  • Review existing data on uptake of Option 2 for patterns across the country;
  • Gather case-study evidence of Option 2 in practice, from the perspectives of different groups of social care users, local authorities and providers;
  • Examine which factors support and which challenge the implementation of Option 2.

The contract for the research has been awarded to a consortium led by Blake Stevenson Ltd with Rocket Science Ltd and the University of York (York Health Economics Consortium Ltd). CCPS is representing providers on the Research Advisory Group.
