Content

The primary focus of this unit is the identification and mapping, of individualised and inclusive services. The unit will introduce students to the service provision process while still maintaining a focus on the individual, using best practice examples. Several sociocultural contexts will be explored for example cultural differences as well as rural and remote services. 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 dynamics and the relationship between service providers and service users and individualisation through Family-centred and Person-centred approaches. Preparation for, and the impact of the NDIS. These will be discussed in the context of key life experiences of people with a disability, for example, individuals with complex mental and physical health needs, dementia and end of life decisions.
