Art Lift Update Report (2011-2014) final 28 04 14.docx
Artlift Arts on Referral scheme is a primary care based art intervention in Gloucestershire where health professionals refer patients for an 8-10 week art programme, usually delivered in a community based or primary care setting. Patients are referred for a range of reasons (to reduce stress, anxiety or depression; to improve self-esteem or confidence; to increase social networks; alleviate symptom of chronic pain or illness; distract from behaviour related health issues; improve overall wellbeing). The 8-10 week intervention involves art sessions delivered by artists working with activities such as words/poetry, ceramics, drawing, mosaic and painting. This update report summarises a brief evaluation of the available Artlift data (April, 2014) conducted by the Interventions4Health team at the University of Gloucestershire. This evaluation represents an update from the original evaluation published in 2011 (Crone et al., 2011) which resulted in two international peer reviewed academic publications (Crone et al., 2012; Crone et al., 2013). Recall that the evaluation design/method and Warwick Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (WEMWBS) are described in the original evaluation. This evaluation had added the referred patients since the 2011 evaluation which has increased the overall patient data base. The Artlift database remains, to date, one of the largest database of an arts on referral programme available and this evaluation presents the largest known data set of patients referred onto such a programme in the world.
