Building Knowledge Project

Partner Organisation: Down Syndrome Victoria

Research Team: Ana Garcia-Melgar, Anthea Rutter, Centre for Program Evaluation

Down Syndrome Victoria is partnering with Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) to demonstrate an approach for achieving positive health outcomes for children with Down syndrome and their families across Victoria by piloting the delivery of a specific Down syndrome clinic and family healthcare tool, co-designed with paediatricians, families and people with Down syndrome. The pilot will then be upscaled across Victoria. This project will evaluate the approach and offer recommendations for scaling the pilot.
