Using Personal Outcome Measures in Planning for People

  • Dates: 27 – 27 Aug, 2015
AAIDD Online Learning Course:
Using Personal Outcome Measures in Planning for People

Is your person-centered planning process really person-centered? Many of these planning processes use formats and content areas that are dictated by regulatory requirements or standardized measures. We have to question how person-centered they are if other people determine what should be in an individual’s plan. In this course, CQL | The Council on Quality and Leadership offers Personal Outcome Measures® as a basis for creating a support plan that is truly person-centered. You can be assured that it is person-centered because it is based on the personal outcomes and priorities that are defined by each person for her/his own life. Through lessons, stories, and interactive activities, this course will show you how to use personal outcomes to create a simple, easy-to-use support plan that won’t end up in a drawer! 

The information in this course is useful for anyone—including health care staff with intermediate and advanced levels of experience—responsible for setting up services and supports for others, including those with support needs related to a mental illness, intellectual or developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, substance use, poverty, or other challenges.

This course is part of a series of e-learning courses which lays the foundation for a deeper understanding of the personal outcomes approach, identifies and explains the 21 personal outcomes across services settings, and explores the practical use of personal outcomes. We encourage you to complete them as a suite in order to gain as much in-depth knowledge and skills as possible.
