Evaluation

Central West Libraries are working with the University of Newcastle’s Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health on the evaluation of NSW Books on Prescription. This evaluation will be important in building the evidence base for Books on Prescription and for fundraising, partnership building and advocacy at local and national levels.

If you’ve engaged with the NSW Books on Prescription Scheme we’d love to hear your views. We’d be graeful if you could take a few minutes to fill in a short, anonymous survey. Your feedback is really importanat so that we can understand how helpful the scheme has been and how we can improve and develop it in the future. We would like to hear from users of the scheme, prescribing medical professionals and library staff.
