WP 1: Management

This work package aims at ensuring the appropriate implementation of the Consortium Agreement and Grant Agreement by guaranteeing that the resources and budget are adequate to the project objectives. This will make sure that i) the procedures and objectives are in place, and ii) there is a communication flow that successfully organises and coordinates the project activities of each partner.

WP 2: Dissemination

The specific objectives of this work package are:

  • To inform about the activities, progress and outputs of the project EFFICHRONIC to the target audiences
  • To build strategic relations and a community network with healthcare institutions from countries non-involved in the consortium, for improving the expected impacts and widen the geographic coverage
  • To reinforce the participation of specific target groups in the project, with a particular focus on keeping the active role of the chronic patients

The activities of this work package are designed so that the results and deliverables of the project will be available to the target groups.

WP 3: Project Evaluation

This work package aims at evaluating the results with respect to the project objectives by using performance, quantitative and quality measures. An evaluation strategy will be undertaken to verify that the project is being implemented as planned and reaches the objectives.

WP 4: Stratification and vulnerability multidimensional analysis

The specific objectives of this work package are:

  • To carry out multidimensional analysis and stratification methodologies to identify vulnerable groups/individuals in 5 countries/regions (France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain and UK) where the CDSMP will be implemented
  • To design specific strategies to reach the target individual/groups identified and involve them in the implementation programme

To achieve this, social and clinical variables will be identified and included in a Multidimensional Prognostic Index (MPI). The MPI will be used to develop stratification methods that allow the identification of vulnerable groups/individuals.

WP 5: Implementation of the intervention

The CDSMP will be implemented in the 5 countries/regions, and appropriate measures to recruit, plan and involve at least 400 individuals of the stratified/identified populations in each setting (N=2000) will be undertaken.

WP 6: Assessment and data analysis

The main objective of this work package is to analyse the data and to evaluate the performance of the EFFICHRONIC health literacy programme in three countries. The evaluation design will combine quantitative and qualitative data to develop comparative studies across the three countries. Activities aimed at performing statistical and economical analysis, and assessing the cost-efficiency of the intervention by using the Return on Investment (ROI) and the Social Return on Investment (SROI) will be carried out.

WP 7: Guidelines and Policy Recommendations

The activities of this work package aim to identify the Best Practices in the field of Public Health and Chronic Diseases management and self-management, as well as other programmes implemented along the European Union. A series of Guidelines for Public Health and self-management programmes will be elaborated.
