Care management arrangements for people with physical and sensory disabilities: results of a national study

Authors:
XIE Chengqiu, et al
Journal article citation:
Research Policy and Planning, 26(2), 2008, pp.87-100.
Publisher:
Social Services Research Group

This study reports on a national survey of care management arrangements for people with physical and sensory disabilities in England around a previously devised framework. Marked variations were found in many aspects of care management arrangements, along with a lack of a differentiated approach and limited authority of care managers to allocate services responsively. The findings also suggest that some aspects of care management arrangements are less advanced in services for this user group than for people with learning disabilities. These results are discussed in the context of relevant policy initiatives and literature.
