Securing good care for more people : options for reform /

by Humphries, Richard | Forder, Julien | Jos -Luis Fern ndez | Rowling, Edwina (ed).

Publisher: London, U.K. The King's Fund 2010Description: x, 63 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 61-63Summary: In 2006, The King's Fund commissioned Sir Derek Wanless to review the funding of social care for older people. That review proposed a 'partnership model' in which costs were shared between the state and the individual. Since then, the momentum for change has gathered pace. Securing Good Care for More People updates the original review and concludes that a revised version of the 'partnership model' is the fairest way of funding social care in the future. This would see the state guaranteeing to pay 50 per cent of everyone's care costs and matching every 2 contributed by individuals with a further 1. The report not only presents the financial implications of key funding models but also assesses their outcomes, including unmet need. Options for reforming Attendance Allowance are discussed.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The subjective wellbeing of Indigenous Australians /

by Dockery, Alfred Michael | Curtin University of Technology. Curtin Business School. entre for Labour Market Research.

Publisher: Perth, W.A. Curtin University of Technology. Curtin Business School. Centre for Labour Market Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Centre for Labour Market Research. Discussion paper ; no..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2010Summary: Using data on self-assessed quality of life available from the expanded Indigenous sample of the 2001 National Health Survey this paper compares the subjective wellbeing of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Assuming cross-cultural comparability of responses to the quality of life scale, Indigenous Australians are found to face a markedly lower quality of life than other Australians, consistent with the many objective measures of socio-economic outcomes. Differences in the determinants of subjective wellbeing are further explored to identify differences in values and preferences that may be embodied in Indigenous culture. The analysis is considered exploratory given the many limitations of the current data. The collection of data that can improve our understanding of the cultural constructions of wellbeing is identified as an important priority given the pertinence of such evidence for the formulation of policy to address the ongoing plight of Indigenous Australians.Availability: (1)
