This webcast will present a conceptual understanding of person-centered planning and practice, focusing on improved individual outcomes and quality of life. Enhancing person-centered practice aligns with the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Final Rule (under federal Medicaid law), which sets requirements for care planning. The evolution towards person-centered practice has been challenging for New York’s large and complex system because it involves dramatic shifts in policies governing service systems, organizations embedded in traditional models, and in the roles and relationships with those receiving services. This webcast will address the evolution of person-centered thinking, discuss person centered planning and practice as an expectation in the context of the HCBS Final Rule, and discuss the balance between the concepts of “important to” and “important for.” The webcast will emphasize the universality of person-centeredness regardless of situation, life circumstance, or age, as well as how the philosophy and core concepts of person-centered planning are being put into practice in care management settings.

Note: Participants are encouraged to watch the recorded Public Health Live! webcast, “The Money Follows the Person Program: Facilitating Return to Community-based Settings,” which aired on February 16, 2017.

Learning Objectives
After viewing the webcast, participants will be able to:

  • List person-centered planning standards of the Medicaid HCBS Final Rule;
  • Explain the balance between what is ‘important to’ a person and what is ‘important for’ a person; and
  • Describe how buy-in to person-centered thinking, planning and practice improves overall patient healthcare outcomes.

Learning Outcome
Learners will expand their knowledge and understanding of concepts and skills used in Person-Centered Practice.

Target Audience: Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, care coordinators, community health workers and certified public health workers.
