Description for Person-centered Thinking Workshop Person-centered Thinking is the foundation of Home and Community-based Services. If you are a case manager working in long-term care or in home and community-based care, this workshop is for you! A certificate of completion is awarded at completion. Person-centered thinking recognizes that people are experts in their own lives, everyone can express their preferences and live a full life in their own community that they and the people who care about them have good reasons to value. •Person-centered planning identifies and addresses the preferences and interests that make up a desired life and the supports (paid and unpaid) needed to achieve it. It is directed by the person and supported by others selected by the person, who are independent of any service/support to be delivered in the plan. •Person-centered practice is the alignment of service resources and systems that give people access to the full benefits of community living and delivers services in a way that facilitates achieving the person’s desired outcomes. Several HHS programs have issued guidance or requirements for Person-centered Thinking and Planning: ACA Section 2402(a) Guidance (HHS-Wide) •HCBS Final Rule (CMS) •Long Term Care Rule (CMS) •Managed Care Rule (CMS) •Health Homes (CMS) •Accountable Care Communities FOA (CMS) •Discharge Planning Rule (CMS) •Person & Family Engagement Program (CMS) •No Wrong Door (ACL) •Mental Health Block Grants (SAMHSA) •Certified Community Mental Health Clinics (SAMHSA) •eLTSS Standards (ONC) The final CMS rules for Home and Community-based Services, 42 CFR 438.208(c)(3) and 41.301(b)&(c) state: "A consumer's service plan must be developed by individuals who are trained in Person Centered Planning.” However, before you develop a person-centered plan, you must learn to think in a person-centered manner to better understand their needs and preferences.
