|Official title||Effect Evaluation of Individual Placement and Support (IPS)|
|Description||The current employment schemes offered to this diagnostic group are primarily based on a train-and-place principle with assisted or sheltered employment. Building on a place-and-train principle, rather, the IPS model of supported employment in real-life competitive work settings has proven largely successful in previous studies, but has never been tested in this group in the Norwegian context.|
