Abstract

BACKGROUND: Demand for formal social services support for adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) is increasing internationally. Initiatives which empower individuals with ID to improve their health, develop living skills or manage chronic illnesses, may promote independence and reduce unnecessary dependency on social services. METHODS: A ‘preventative framework’ to managing demand comprising several domains was developed from existing literature to guide the search strategy. RESULTS: Fourteen papers related to three domains in the predetermined preventative framework were selected for inclusion in the review, including twelve economic studies. Outcomes included measurement of care needs, and cost-comparison between social care models or costeffectiveness of interventions. Due to the heterogeneity, we were not able to quantitatively synthesise findings. CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that evidence linking initiatives across sectors to demand for adult social care is lacking. We identify several gaps in the literature and make recommendations for future research and data recording in practice.
