Description

This report aims to provide a synthesis of research information to suggest the most important components of Multi-Disciplinary Team responses in order to inform the ongoing review of the Joint Investigation Response Team (JIRT) model by the NSW Ombudsman’s Office.

Drawing on recently completed studies of multi-disciplinary teams and new research, this report presents findings on:

(a) What is the evidence for the effectiveness of Multi-Disciplinary Teams, and what characteristics are consistent across effective Multi-Disciplinary Teams;

(b) What Multi-Disciplinary Team responses to abuse are in use in Australia and comparable international jurisdictions; and

(c) The rationale for Multi-Disciplinary Team models.

The report ends with a summary of the implications of this information for the current review of the JIRT model.
