The unit will introduce students to the service provision process while still maintaining a focus on the individual, using best practice examples. Topics covered include the service provision process and key characteristics of inclusive services, for example independence and control, informed decision making, consent, capacity building, advocacy, power relationships between service providers and service users, and individualisation through Family-centred and Person-centred approaches.
