Health & Social Care in the Community, 05/24/2012Moran A et al.
Results indicate that patient– and team–level factors are a determinant in the proportion of support worker care delivered to older people in the community, suggesting that it may be appropriate to introduce a more explicit targeted deployment of support workers based on patient–level characteristics, which may facilitate a more effective use of qualified practitioner time for more complex, dependent patients.
