This manual was developed as a training resource for designing, training, implementing and monitoring Care Group (CG) programs. It seeks to help CG approach implementers to clearly understand the structure of the CG approach, how to establish CGs, how to monitor the work of CGs and assess their impact, and how to maintain the quality of the approach through supportive supervision and quality control.
In response to practitioner requests, Care Groups: A Reference Guide for Practitioners is also available in addition to the manual. It is based on and meant to serve as a companion to the manual with additional details on all topics. It is the hope of the authors that Care Group practitioners, evaluators and others interested in the Care Groups approach will find the resource useful.
