This e-learning module was developed with Ambitious about Autism, the national charity for children and young people with autism. It builds on learning from the Finished at School programme – a Department for Education funded project to improve school to college transition for young people with autism, including those with complex autism.
If you work with people with dementia and want to know what personalisation can really mean in practice, or if you want ways to keep improving the support you offer, then we can help you to make positive change.
All of the examples shared on this course will be examples of how person-centred thinking skills have been used with older people with dementia who live in residential services, use day services or are supported by family or domiciliary care.
We believe that completing this course will either begin or add to your understanding of what being person-centred means. What is more, the person-centred thinking tools will give you some practical ways to help people take control of their lives and support.
Person-centred risk management is the recognition that people in receipt of support are entitled to take risks to get the life that they want: to take advantage of opportunities even if they come with risk.
This course is divided into a number of sections that focus on the purpose, people, process and progress of your meetings. There is also a section on how to put the person-centred approach to risk into practice – to help you start changing the risk assessments that you are involved in.
The course shows you how to work with people in a person-centred way to facilitate personalised care and support planning. It also shows you how to enable people in receipt of care and support services to become active participants in planning their own care.
All of the examples shared on this course will be examples of how person-centred thinking skills have been used with older people who live in residential services, use day services or are supported by family or domiciliary care.
The course provides opportunities to practice these skills and think about how to apply them in your work.
This e-learning course can be used on mobile devices, and takes 6-7 hours to complete the 12 modules.
