The focus of this subject is on a contemporary paradigm of case management and its increasing application to diverse human service settings and organisations. Its origins are traced to the emergence of the social work profession, the 1970s deinstitutionalisation movement and community nursing. Community care case management is designed to provide advocacy, support and services to vulnerable people and communities. Through a case study approach students differentiate case management systems, their underlying ethos, theory, functions, structures and practices.
