Evidence Base for Self-management

Evidence Base for Self-management

COTA Australia’s ‘Self-management in Home Care’ project was a ground-breaking initiative funded by the Australian Government from 2017 to its conclusion in September 2019. The COTA Australia website hosts numerous resources  freely available to both providers and consumers to help build a greater understanding and practical knowledge about self-management in home care.

RMIT University research lead, Dr Carmel Laragy, conducted a literature review, upon which, the project was able to build upon the successes and lessons learnt from past programs.

Further, the project conducted a detailed research evaluation and analysis of the outcomes for participants and providers to add to the existing body of practical and academic knowledge available.

As well as academic publications, numerous reports and articles were published to reach industry and consumer audiences.
