Individuals we support sometimes make life-style choices or present with behavior challenges that put their own health and safety and that of others at risk. Some supports that are needed might restrict the person’s rights.  This training gives an overview of Clients’ Rights Limitations and Restrictive Measures and how to assure their thoughtful and appropriate use.

Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • What constitutes a Clients Rights Limitation or Restrictive Measure
  • What are Prohibited Practices
  • How to assess if these supports should be considered at all
  • How to thoughtfully incorporate any limitations into a support plan
  • How to monitor the use and effectiveness of these supports
  • How to meet documentation requirements

Webinar Structure:

Webinar will include a 1.5 hour presentation with opportunities for participant engagement. Participants will attend a 15-20 minute follow up discussion with Q&A one week after the webinar. This will provide participants an opportunity to reflect on what they have learned, process information, and engage in smaller group discussions on the topic.
