Change and wicked problems in health care transitioning

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Attention is focussed on multiple stakeholder issues that cut across organizational boundaries and

    create ‘wicked’ problems that are difficult to resolve. Our key focus centres on how to effectively

    manage the transition of people with intellectual disabilities into aged care that facilitates well-being

    for clients, carers and stakeholders. Both the Disability and Aged Care Sectors recognise the

    difficulties for people with intellectual disabilities who experience aging issues earlier than other

    people and yet, funding barriers and inter-organizational constraints have prevented effective action.

    We advocate a storytelling approach to identify obstacles that require further investigation as well as

    to leverage stakeholders to potential opportunities for social innovation and the development of

    programmes for change.
