Webinar Title: Person-Centered Assessment and Planning


The intent of this training is to describe and show examples of the process of assessment, interpretive summary, and ultimately the development of the person-centered plan.

Webinar participants should be able to:

  1. Understand the importance of a fluid person-centered assessment and plan.
  2. Know how to take the interpretive summary and translate it to the person-centered plan.
  3. Create a person-centered plan that meets CARF standards.
  4. Understand assessment of progress and treatment plan updates, transitions, and discharges.
