Case management is the general term applied to the systematic provision of a unique set of services for individuals and families who receive assistance in health and welfare services. Originally applied to the mental health context, the term is now applied in such diverse settings as child welfare, juvenile justice, aged care, disability, mental health and correctional settings. This subject explores the history and principles of case management as a model of service delivery and examines the evidence base for practice in the various areas of application. The subject will encourage students to apply the theory of case management to specific practice situations familiar to students through their own work. The course will have a strong practice focus, with specialist inputs from practitioners, and service consumers.
