: Is there a need for case management? What is case management? Why is it on the map? The author answers these questions and provides a survey of current and recent case management and co-ordination projects and services in Britain describing their main features and the differences between them and what is known so far about their successes and failures. She also discusses the evaluation of case management and explores the experience of case management from both the clients' and the service providers' point of view. The final section of the book evaluates the work of a disability team which is based on the case management model, being a team of health service professionals rather than individual case managers, with additional roles of providing advice and a limited amount of treatment. The author discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches, and provides recommendations for planners in setting up future teams.
