Person-Centred Planning and Practice Workshop – Nhulunbuy
Person-centred planning and practice delivers positive outcomes to people with disability by being flexible and tailored to individual strengths and needs.
Providers that adopt person-centred planning and practice deliver supports that competently recognise and respond to needs and wishes of participants.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is underpinned by person-centred principles and approaches. The NT Quality and Safeguarding Framework recognises the importance of person-centred approaches that are essential for the safety, security and well-being of people with disability.
The Centre for Disability Studies will be delivering a series of workshops to providers to refine skills in and gain a deeper understanding of the values underpinning person-centred planning and practice.
This two day workshop will cover:
- current best practice approaches to supporting people with disability, including pre-planning conversations, creativity and imagination, supported decision making
- toolkit of person-centred practice planning tools and resources, relevant to the individual needs of people and communities
- flexible approaches to help balance person-centred practice with community centredness
- strategies to build networks and support colleagues in their person-centred practice
- growing person-centred practice under the NDIS
