Abstract

Work integration social enterprises (WISEs) have been recognised as having the potential to positively impact the health and wellbeing of marginalised populations. The evaluation of the effectiveness of WISE as a health intervention is compromised by both lack of consensus on the critical ingredients of the approach and the inherent need for adaptations to address population-specific concerns within a wide range of local contexts. To help address these issues, and advance the WISE field, we propose the application of intervention mapping, a systematic process framework for the development, implementation, and evaluation of complex public health interventions. Intervention mapping consists of six processes: needs assessment; specifying performance objectives; identifying underlying theory; developing the intervention; implementation and adoption planning; and evaluation planning. To illustrate the intervention mapping processes, we focus its application to WISEs for people with serious mental illnesses. Two brief case studies based on Canadian WISEs illustrate how factors specific to each enterprise influence the implementation of performance objectives to ensure that expected changes occur and, ultimately, influence the health and wellbeing of workers.
