Exploration of Evaluation Practices in Social Prescribing Services in Ireland: A Cross-Sectional Observational Study


'The above-referenced paper published on 16 January 2024 looks at evaluation practices in Social Prescribing services in the Island of Ireland. Social Prescribing is continuing to grow as a support service in Ireland. The ever-growing demand for social prescribing requires a robust evaluation to determine the impact of Social Prescribing on individuals’ health, cost-effectiveness, and the impact on local communities where services are based. Evaluation of Social Prescribing services can be a complex process. This paper can provide a guide to what is currently being done in services around the Island of Ireland. Important recommendations from Social Prescribing staff and link workers across Ireland on what and how to evaluate were gathered from this study.’ Hayley Connolly, Research Assistant at Trinity College Dublin
