Health complexity


The Artemis Programme took place in the Devon Mental Health Care Trust over the course of a year in 2003. Artemis was explicitly designed using principles from complexity theory, and aimed to be concentrate on experiential development rather than professional development. The research sought to determine the impact of the programme on the participants, and on the culture in the Trust. A further question concerned the potential applicability of Artemis to other health and social care settings. The main thematic findings from the research will be presented, and there will be ample time to reflect on these findings, and to determine the value that could be gained from interpreting the findings from the perspective of complexity theory.
