Case management and importance of caseload size

2012 | ISBN 978-0-9951240-0-4

This evidence brief examines the importance of case management caseload size for increasing work participation of those with ill health or disabilities. Overall, the impact of case management as an activity in itself is difficult to isolate.

There is mixed evidence on the effectiveness of case management as a means of moving benefit recipients with health and disability problems into work.

2011 | ISBN 978-0-9951240-1-1

This evidence brief reviews international literature to determine the optimal caseload size in best practice case management for social services targeting at-risk young adults.
