Reshaping Care for Older People – The Lanarkshire Contribution Story Chapter 4

Examples of Practice

Lanarkshire is using a Contribution Analysis (CA) approach (Mayne, 2012) to enable a conversation about the strength of evidence gathered from many disparate initiatives, all claiming to influence the outcomes agreed for Reshaping Care for Older People. The previous three chapters of the Story have evidenced contributions to the outcomes the programme aimed to achieve. The robustness of evidence has allowed focus to move to medium term outcomes.

A means of bringing the different initiatives together under a common framework was required.
