However, all other things MACRO-QUESTIONS AND MICRO- are not equal. Although longitudinal research on SOLUTIONS special initiatives and some wider evaluations This issue of the Tizard Learning Disability Review (Emerson & Hatton, 1994) demonstrate that people addresses some critical issues for service development with learning disabilities are, according to key and practice at both the macro-policy level and the measures of quality and outcome, better off living micro-service level. in small-scale services in the community than in hospital, and although such services are generally the most productive, they are also the most MACRO-QUESTIONS expensive (Cambridge et al., 1994). At the policy level, the Research Feature by Eric We have consequently been making cost- Emerson and his co-researchers reports on the key effectiveness judgements outside comparative findings and comparisons from a Department of evidence from the more segregated alternatives
