Shifting towards a new vision: From focus on the disorder/disability to focus on the person Experiential knowledge: the value of personal experience, focus on learning/development, peer support From illness/disability based to strengths-based From professional-directed to user-directed From individual to community
New standards: Contemporary models of care for people with high and complex needs should be evaluated in terms of the degree to which services support people’s: presence in the community; active participation in every day life; opportunities to develop, exercise and demonstrate to others their competence; exercise of individual choice; and dignity and rights (both legal and human) (cf O’Brien, 1992; Wilken, 2007)
