7 Person Centred Planning “Person centred planning is a process of learning about a person; who they are; what has happened to them; what is important to them; and what they want from life” Gates, 2007, p302.Ask the group what they think this is about.Predominantly in learning disability fields but can relate to all types of care. More detailed you will find in LD field.Individual task - planning
8 Five Key Features of PCP The person is at the centreFamily Members and friends are partners in planningThe plan reflects what is important to the personThe plan results in actions about lifeThe plan results in ongoing listening learning and further actionPCP has come from a shift away from the medical model of disability where goals and targets were defined by professionals and service users had no part in this planning – say about review meetings where service users had no part – imagine people planning for you and you not being able to have your say???Shift in thinking about peoples strengths and not just their needs.Greater emphasis on self advocacy and the role of the person and their family not just professionals.Rooted in the values of inclusion, diversity, choice and empowerment. Not fixing people but thinking about how and individual chooses to live their life. Rooted in the 5 service accomplishments from normalisation and SRV
