Effectiveness of a neonatal COVID-19 response project: A mixed-methods evaluation using the Donabedian model.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Objective: This article outlines notable findings of a service evaluation of a COVID-19 response project, the Nurture Project (July 2020-March 2021).

Method: The Donabedian structure-process-outcome model was used. Mixed-methods online surveys and organisational data were analysed using reflexive thematic analysis and statistical analysis methods.

Results: Most staff and service users were satisfied with the project, reporting positive benefits to mental health, child development, and wellbeing. However, project outcome measures (Generalised Anxiety Disorder Scale GAD-7 and the Patient Health Questionnaire PHQ-9) were statistically non-significant.

Conclusion: Although the project was considered successful, recommendations for future service evaluation methods, outcome measurement, and future research are provided.
