University, Research Partners:

This project is a health economics sub-study within of 3DN’s National Health & Medical Research Council Partnerships for Better Health Project, Improving Mental Health Outcomes for People with an Intellectual Disability. People with intellectual disability (ID) have high mental health needs and complex interactions between mental health and physical health. This project aims to evaluate differences in health services utilisation and costs for the ID population (and subpopulations within this group). It intends to develop an understanding of the health care utilisation and costs of the ID population (and subpopulations within this group) to determine whether these individuals should be differentiated within activity based funding models and where gaps to service provision may exist.
