Consumer-Directed Services As Home: A New Model For Persons With Disabilities (2001)
This article discusses consumer-directed models of care, providing an overview of the issue as consumer-direction was becoming more prevalent in U.S. policy. It explores the rationale for consumer direction, describes the range of consumer-directed approaches to home care, and summarizes what research and analysis have revealed thus far about the issues that arise as programs are designed and implemented (e.g. who should be eligible to self-direct, who can be hired as a provider, how can quality be assessed).
