    Project Details


    Directions Health Services is based in Canberra, with satellite hubs in Goulburn and Wagga Wagga. It delivers healthcare to people impacted by substance and other addictions. Within Directions, the Althea Wellness Centre provides primary healthcare using a harm minimisation approach with multi-disciplinary care including general practice, nursing, social work, counselling, and psychology. The Althea Wellness Centre presents an excellent opportunity to trial eCHAT for the first time in Australia. Further, this would be the first time eCHAT is trialed in a more specific community population, affected by substance use problems. In light of how particularly important patient-centred care is in a marginalised population, I have a proposed a project to understand the effect of eCHAT on the client-doctor therapeutic relationship in this setting.
