Latest paper from the Journal of Long-Term Care
New paper looks at Evaluating Social Care Prevention in England: Challenges and Opportunities
Authors: Marczak J, Wistow G, Fernandez J-L.
The latest paper from the Journal of Long-Term Care looks at the statutory duty (under the Care Act 2014) for Adult Social Care to prevent and delay development of needs for care and support. It seeks to lay the foundations for understand approaches to translating the Care Act’s obligation into effective local practice.
The study was conducted in six authorities to investigate how existing local approaches to prevention across Adult Social Care support prevention duties.
Findings include important differences between and within local authorities in how they interpret the concept of prevention. Findings also show limited collaboration between Adult Social Care and Health, and limited evaluation of local preventative efforts, due to pressures on resources.
