Evaluation of Quitline Shared Care Trial
The Shared Care Trial was established as an exploratory project to investigate a shared care approach to improve Māori and Pacific quit rates and increase collaboration between Quitline and face-to-face cessation providers. The Trial was launched in Wellington in May 2014, with two Wellington-based providers: Aukati KaiPaipa and Pacific Health Service.
Due to changes in staff and limited in-house capacity Quitline commissioned Litmus to provide external support to complete the evaluation. Litmus undertook qualitative interviews, document review and analysis of the administrative and costing data, and analysed, interpreted, and reported on all the information gathered.
