from 9.00-4.00pm



EPR members are invited to attend the one day workshop on person-centred planning. Person-centredness is a core concept that underpins service delivery processes of EPR member organisations. The smooth implementation of this principle across all services supports quality services, continuum of care and achievement of the client’s objectives. Person Centred Planning (PCP) is an ongoing problem-solving process used to help people with disabilities plan for their future. This approach can enhance clients’ personal self-determination and improve their own independence. PCP promotes a better understanding of the personal goals and to identify strategies to achieve these goals and aims, encouraging the further development of personal skills and abilities.

Delivering services designed using PCP represents a co-production based approach, where professionals facilitate the identification of goals and solutions together with the service users, namely the expert from experience. In 2016, EPR members have been extensively looking at co-production and contributing to the study on this topic published on occasion of the Public Affairs event in Brussels.

Therefore, considering the relevance of PCP and the link to co-production, EPR is organising a workshop in collaboration with NHO Work and Inclusion. During the highly interactive sessions, participants will examine the definition and values of person-centred planning, explore some of the tools and skills in practice, learn from each other and how development and improvement can take place through reflection and action planning. A facilitator who is an expert in the subject will guide participants through the processes.

The final programme is available here.

Please note that only 15 participants can attend the workshop, with a ratio of maximum 2/3 Norwegian (10) participants and aiming at 1 participant per organisation so to ensure a wide participation of the EPR network. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and confirmed by the EPR Secretariat on a rolling basis. Should the registrations exceed the above number of participants, reserve lists will be created. EPR will contact directly those applicants included in the Reserve lists and inform them about the status of their registration.

EPR members interested in attending this benchlearning workshop can register by filling in the online Registration Form before Friday, 8th September 2017.
