O'Brien, John
Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, v17 n1 p11-15 Mar 2004
Person-centred planning is one important tool in making the culture change necessary to realize the Government's promise in "Valuing People." Some potential dangers in large scale implementation are identified, a logic for local action is described, the criteria for effective person-centred planning are defined in terms of supporting personal choice, the contribution of person-centred planning to organizational culture change is identified, the possibility of failure to implement policy change is acknowledged, and the potential benefits of person-centred planning under conditions of policy failure is described.
