The Care Programme Approach: "Making the CPA work for you"

flowerWorking in a joint venture, ARW & Practice Based Evidence were commissioned by the Department of Health to produce various service user and carer information materials in respect of the Refocused C.P.A. The products we developed and delivered in this context are known as the Making the CPA work for you pack and consist of the following:

  • Leaflet
    A three-fold document providing service users & carers with the basic information they need to know about the C.P.A. process
  • Booklet
    This is a 38 page A5 publication which goes into more depth about the C.P.A. for those individuals or groups who require a more detailed knowledge of the C.P.A., how it works and what good practice should look like
  • DVD
    Supporting and complimenting the booklet above, this 35 minute film includes interviews with service users & carers about their experiences of the Care Programme Approach process. It is presented by Chris’ Wright & Roberta Wetherell who explain the key features of the “Refocused” C.P.A.

PDF versions of the Leaflet and Booklet are available on the Downloads page. In addition, all three items are available free of charge from Department of Health Publications.
