The Process for Care Planning for Resident Choice

For many years, care communities have been saying that they cannot implement at least some elements of person-centered care because of fear that they will get cited by the surveyors, or possibly get sued by the resident’s family if there is a negative outcome that might be attributed to those policies or practices. The Honoring Preferences When the Choice Involves Risk Process for Shared Decision Making and Care Planning was developed in response to these concerns to support long-term care communities in their efforts to honor residents’ choices and preferences that influence the quality of care and quality of life while mitigating potential risks associated with those choices and preferences. The toolkit and training video are available to assist your community’s effort to provide preference-based, person-centered care as you begin to implement this process for shared decision making.
