2018 Self-Direction Workshop Breakout Session: Support Planner, Broker, Consultant…A Rose by Any Other Name.
Self-direction is a best practice and national trend in long term services and supports (LTSS). Also known as consumer-directed or participant-directed services, self-direction is both a service delivery model and philosophy that maximizes choice and control for people enrolled in home and community-based waiver programs. Learn about two different approaches to supporting people in self-direction and the important role the support planner and self-direction consultant play in two states, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Representatives from these states share the challenges, lessons learned and best practices in providing effective support for very different self-directed models.
