Netten, A.P. and Forder, J.E. (2007) The costs of what? Measuring services and quality of care. Social Policy and Society, 6 (3). pp. 397-409. ISSN 1474-7464.
If we are to be able to reflect the cost implications of changes in the nature, quality and productivity of long-term care interventions in future projections, we need an approach to measurement that reflects the value and quality of care. This paper describes a theoretically based but pragmatic approach to identifying the welfare gain from government expenditure on social care and illustrates an application in projecting the costs of long-term care used in the Wanless review of future needs of social care for older people in England.
