Structures and processes
Person centred systems and behaviours are embedded and support safety for everyone
Some ideas that your team could try:
- Why structures and processes are important
Person-centred care/support planning requires an ongoing conversation between the person and those providing their care or support.
This type of planning makes sure the person’s care or support needs are recorded, and can be met in a way that takes account of their preferences, personal goals and outcomes, and what matters to them. This makes it possible for the person to be involved in both realistic and shared-decision making with those providing their care or support.
Enabling family and carer presence and involvement has been shown to have clear links to ensuring safety for people receiving care or support.
