In person-centered Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), people define their own needs and preferences to live their lives the way they want. However, these outcomes are not always achieved, even when person-centered policies and programs are put in place. In this webinar, panelists who receive or have received HCBS, will share their experiences with person-centered supports and services. The discussion will include topics related to rights, choice, and control and how these critical elements can be improved and fully integrated into service delivery practices. Members from the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on HCBS Person-Centered Outcomes and Measurements at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab will also present early findings from their research of best practices for person-centered HCBS delivery from interviews with people who use and deliver HCBS.
NCAPPS webinars include ASL interpretation, live English captions, and live Spanish interpreting.
