ConNetica has completed reviews and analysis of mental health services, aged care, people’s lived experiences, regional mental health and suicide prevention plans and needs assessments.
Each project is unique and each initial project phase confirms deliverables, timeframes, responsibilities and approach. We use a variety of theories and mediums to gather, review and analyse information.
Theories include action learning, program logic, nominal group processes and grounded theory.
Collection tools include surveys, focus groups, interviews, virtual connections, submissions, literature reviews, closed face book pages and desk top audits.
The following information provides a brief overview of detailed projects we completed.
