Presented by National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems
Person-centered supports must ensure that people have opportunities to make informed choices and to be supported in managing the risks that come with some decisions. Support providers have a direct role in helping people to live lives of their choosing and often face the challenge of balancing the individual’s choice and what is their ‘duty of care’. Participants in this webinar will 1) hear from people with disabilities about their experience in planning, navigating concerns about well-being, and seeking the ‘dignity of risk’, 2) learn from providers of supports about requirements, challenges, and successes in the delivery of quality person-centered supports that considers health and safety while honoring a person’s right to make decisions that may not always be in their best interest, 3) learn about training available for direct support providers that will equip them with the skills and strategies to help manage health and safety concerns in a person-centered way.
