Abstract

<p>This report was commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to examine ways of moving towards a common<p><p>assessment system in residential and nursing home settings, which would assess individual care needs, assist in<p><p>constructing care plans and provide appropriate information to assist in costing the care provided. The assessment<p><p>process was required to offer a common basis for agreeing levels of care across organisations and localities, be<p><p>acceptable to health and social services staff, be focused upon the personal needs of the service user and be readily<p><p>incorporated into a computer software package. <p><p><p>In order to achieve this it was expected that the methods would include a literature review, a review of relevant of UK and<p><p>overseas care systems and procedures, a commentary on existing care assessment documents and discussions with key<p><p>actors in the organisations involved. The following report addresses the goals above through the mechanisms described.
