This document is the final report for the national evaluation of the Care Planning Sub-Program funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing between April 2006 and April 2009. Thirty-three projects were funded across Australia. In this report we present an overview of the Care Planning Sub-Program, including its impacts on consumers, providers and the health system, the resources developed and the sustainability strategies employed by the projects. A companion report, Care Planning: description of projects funded to improve care planning in palliative care, provides details of each project's objectives, activities and impacts. A third report, Care Planning: report on activities of the national evaluation, addresses the deliverables in the evaluation contract.
