Professional ‘case management’ should result in consumers to be able to manage their own lives as much as possible and, with professional support not have a provider ‘take over’. It is a targeted, community-based and pro-active approach to care that involves assessment, care planning, monitoring and care co-ordination. Where a professional case management approach is effectively implemented, it has improved the experiences of consumers/clients by supporting better care outcomes and improved quality of life.
