This chapter develops an ideal palliative-care system by applying the key elements of Social Role Valorisation (SRV)-based systems to the palliative-care context. It argues that service systems can evolve beyond the institutional model to a dispersed services model. Beginning with a discussion of the evolution of systems beyond institutional models, the chapter then looks at how a dispersion of service provision allows institutions to be closed. After examining the feasibility and effectiveness of non-institutional models of care, the chapter describes the closure of a disability institution, a significant proportion of whose residents require palliative care. It concludes by outlining a reconfiguration of case management that can work towards a dispersion of service provision.
