  • This publication is based on a briefing paper prepared by the authors for a workshop on the roles of intermediate care coordinators, which sets out the range of functions of intermediate care coordination and their context within the overall implementation framework of the National Service Framework for Older People. It has been refined in the light of comments and discussions at the workshop. It contains a comprehensive list of functions and tasks that need to be carried out in each care community to ensure an effective and efficient intermediate care system. Some potential challenges faced by those developing the role and service system were identified: organisational change in care communities may in turn necessitate changes in the way that intermediate care is coordinated; and the focus of the current service system must not be allowed to inhibit the identification of further opportunities to develop new service responses or change to current working practices and the way current resources are used.
