Participate in the RAd Health Process Evaluation interviews

At 2 times during the trial, complete a 30 min. interview (via phone or Zoom) with a member of the RAd Health team. Questions will cover the impact of a rebate on the number of young people’s health assessments, continuity of care for young people, acceptability, harms, potential barriers, and facilitators to conducting the health assessments; discuss reasons why the intervention did or did not work at increasing adolescent health assessments.

Participate in the RAd Health audio diaries:

At six points during the year, complete audio or text diaries sent to a member of the RAd Health team. Topics will broadly cover: What worked well; what did not work well; unexpected conversations or outcomes; the effectiveness of the provided resources; possible improvements or suggestions for running the health checks.
