Financing and management of lifetime care for adults with acquired disabilities and high care needs (2008–2011)

Abstract:
By examining the financing and management of lifetime care for adults with acquired disabilities across policy domains and in practice, this study aims to identify effective mechanisms for coordinating appropriate and sustainable lifetime care. The individualised mix of services required by adults with lifelong needs from catastrophic injuries or serious illnesses involves diverse funding sources and multiple sector and service inputs. To this point, there is no overarching mechanism to coordinate unshared financial arrangements and discrete areas of responsibility in provision of care. The proposed project will provide a conceptual and empirical basis for policy development and service delivery-driven solutions. '',
