- Recommendation ID
Service delivery models:- Which models of service delivery are effective and cost-effective for older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- There was a lack of evidence about different models of support provision for older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions. There is a need for robust evaluations of different approaches to service delivery comparing, for example:
- models led by different practitioners
- different team structures
- the components and configurations of models
- barriers and facilitators to the implementation of models.
Outcomes could include social care- and health-related quality of life, satisfaction, carer's health, number of unpaid care hours provided and health and social care resource use. Outcomes and service use should be measured over 1 or 2 years to enable assessment of the health and economic impact of different models of service delivery in the short and longer term.
