Productivity and personalisation
The Putting People First consortium has published a guide called Practical approaches to improving productivity through personalisation in adult social care. This paper suggests that self-directed support should be seen as a core part of the wider transformation process that aims to promote independence, extend choice, and offer cost effective solutions for people needing ongoing support. It emphasises the importance of developing efficient operating systems, and of streamlining the businesses processes associated with self-directed support.
More detailed versions of the case studies included in this paper are published in full as part of the SCIE Good Practice Framework.
Alongside this paper, SCIE has produced an overview of the most recent evidence on the cost-effectiveness of self-directed support.
