SCIE guide 14 : Improving outcomes for service users in adult placement : commissioning and care management

This guide sets out the findings of the 2005 practice survey, and suggests practice points for care managers, line managers and their managers, and directors of adult social care services, as well as adult placement schemes, to help improve outcomes for people using adult placement services.

This guide suggests how commissioners and care managers, and adult placement schemes, can improve outcomes for people who use adult placement. It is designed for people making referrals and those who are receiving them. It is also of use to those people who use services, their families and advocates, and adult placement carers.

This guide is one of a series published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE). SCIE guides are one-stop shops for social care practitioners, presenting key findings, current legislation and examples of what is working well to guide and inform practice. Guide published in October 2006.
