Consumer Directed Care
Consumer Directed Care Evaluation
Consumer Directed Care is a form of care for older people that gives them a greater say in, and more control over, the design and delivery of community care services provided to them and their carers.
An evaluation of the Consumer Directed Care initiative was undertaken by KPMG, on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. The evaluation commenced in early 2011 and finished in January 2012.
