Abstract

The primary aim of this IIASC study is to develop outcome indicators that better reflect the contributions made by adult social care. Specifically, the IIASC study aims to identify a way by which data collected from the ASCS and SACE could be used to generate a measure of ‘added value’ reflecting the impact of support provided by LAs on social care-related outcomes. The IIASC study collected in-depth information from service users and carers across 22 local authorities (LAs) in England. By including a wide range of measures of social care service use and non-service-related factors, the study aims to identify the best adjustment methodology to ensure a fair comparison between organisations and over time, and to provide recommendations for the use of this measure and the supplementary items to be collected in the ASCS and SACE. The study does not aim to address theoretical questions on the use of outcome measures in adult social care.
