Reflecting on a
Five years after CDC was first piloted as a model of care, 1 July marked its full
implementation across all government-funded home care packages.
From managing the risks in subcontracting arrangements to the
sharpening of market competition, CDC has fundamentally transformed the way
home care providers do business. In this edition, we ask a number of senior
managers to reflect on the impact CDC has had on their organisations, their role as
service providers, and, most importantly on their clients.
We also keenly await the release of the government's own evaluation of the
introduction of CDC, which will provide valuable analysis on the consumer experience
and outcomes, and lessons learned. We look forward to reporting on the review's findings.
To keep you regularly informed of sector developments and to complement
this quarterly magazine, Community Care Review has recently launched a weekly
e-newsletter. We encourage you to sign up to stay across the latest news, opinion
and industry resources (go to australianageingagenda.com.au/subscribe).
In another exciting development, I am pleased to announce that Community Care
Review and Australian Ageing Agenda will be hosting a one-day event to support
community care providers in delivering wellness, reablement and restorative care.
The Active Ageing Conference 2015 on 29 October in Sydney will share the latest
evidence on the approaches that now underpin the home care and home support
programs, as well as strategies to implementing them.
We hope to see you there.
