Hi,
I've just returned to the area where I completed the DAFNE programme and I'm interested to know how far things have progressed with the roll-out of a proposed DAFNE plus programme.

I'd be grateful for any intel from anyone.

Thanks.

The initial trial courses have been run. The next step is to run a series of the new courses at some centres and compare the results to the existing course run in a set of different centres. the results will then be compared to see if there is an improvement in outcomes, and that will be over a couple of years. Bottom line is that unless you happen to be scheduled for a course in one of the trial sites, it will still be several years before roll-out occurs to the rest of the country, and that assumes that outcomes are improved.
