Overview

Day 1 of the workshop will support participants in identifying practical strategies to promote person centred care with clients experiencing dementia or other chronic conditions. An evidence-based framework based on the facilitator’s research (Brown Wilson, 2013) will be used to develop practical strategies in implementing person centred care at the client level. The World Health Organisation (WHO) model of International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) will also be used as a framework for describing and organizing information on functioning and disability in the context of making decisions about the support and care provision required for people living with dementia and other chronic health conditions. The workshop will adopt an action learning approach where participants will apply the information to develop solutions to real case scenarios delivering person centred care.

Day 2 of the workshop will support participants in planning and implementing person centred care at a team and organisational level. The evidence-based framework from Day 1 will be applied with participants being mentored to develop practical strategies in implementing person centred care at each level in the organisation (Brown Wilson, 2017). It will build on Day 1 by considering strategies at the meso (team) and macro (organizational) level and how workplace practices and policies might be developed to enable the use of the ICF in promoting person centred care. Change management strategies will be developed in response to these discussions. Participants will also consider the complexity of making decisions for long term health problems and how the use of the ICF impacts on planning for the future.

*Workshop delivery format is subject to changes in line with the COVID-19 measures in Singapore.
In the event of a change in format, similar topics will be delivered through a series of asynchronous online presentations and follow-up tasks in an online discussion forum on 15-19 June 2020.
