This workshop gives participants a deep understanding of the practicalities involved in supporting someone to make a decision. We use case studies to cover:
- assessing the required level of support for decision making
- identifying supports and mapping a support network
- how to support someone to make decisions
- identifying the pros and cons of decisions
- how to spot biases and conflicts of interests
- the importance of having decision review mechanisms.
Workshop participants will understand:
- how to build decision making capacity
- barriers to making decisions and how to overcome them
- the duty of care versus the dignity of risk
- how to use decision support tools to effectively support an individual to make a decision.
Any individual, volunteer, business or organisation wanting to enhance their client relationships.
Workshops can take place over Zoom or on Microsoft Teams software.
In person workshops will take place at a location convenient to you, this might be your home, a health care setting, your workplace or a residential aged care home.
