The principles for the HPW framework are relatively easy to understand. Enacting the principles is a bit more difficult. This section of the web site is designed to help academics, researchers, community members, clinicians and others put HPW into action by using a checklist that includes five key questions.

How can we evaluate and reflect on what we are doing?

  • HPW process evaluation

  • Process evaluation tool

  • HPW outcome and implementation evaluation framework

Moving from the Theoretical to Praxis: 
 Understanding the Resource Toolkit

The resource toolkit is designed to help move from the theoretical basis of the HPW framework to the practical implementation of the framework. The foundational principles are important to guide our work and they also can be hard to put into direct practice. This toolkit is organised around a checklist about five core questions to put HPW into practice. They are put into development over time.

  • Viable systems model

  • Soft systems methodology for setting purpose and design
