Thick care: designing for an ethic of care and complexity in community aged care services

30 May 2018
Description

This paper examines the links between complex service systems and care and the idea of thick care is introduced. Thick care is a term coined by the author and its context lies in research that investigates what it means to design for services where the foremost virtue is an ethic of care and when service systems are becoming ever more complex. The paper contributes to the efficacy of complex service systems that deliver care to older people in Australia. It summarises the argument underpinning thick care with a focus on how the concept ensures better outcomes for peoples’ experience of community aged care.
