Abstract

This quality improvement project provided a descriptive analysis of the patient population that received integrated mental and physical health care at Old Town Clinic, and evaluated patient and staff satisfaction with this model of care. Seventy-three patients and seven staff members were surveyed, using two satisfaction surveys distributed in January 2003. Survey data revealed that the majority of Old Town Clinic patients were homeless. Patients indicated high levels of satisfaction with the clinic’s location, ease of accessing care, and health promotion and illness prevention education. Staff satisfaction with this model of care was reported to be moderate regarding accessibility, response time, communication, support, treatment, completeness of care, and education. Recommendations for further research and implications for practice are offered.
