Needs Assessment

Comprehensive needs assessments look in depth at the needs of specific groups of people (such as children) or types of service (such as sexual health services). They include, for example:

  • assessing the prevalence of particular conditions
  • the services available, their effectiveness and how they compare with services elsewhere
  • the views of stakeholders
  • quantifying models of care
  • identifying outcome measures and recommendations.
