Person Centered Planning Workshops


The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS), LeadingAge Illinois (LAI) and The Affordable Assisted Living Coalition (AALC) are co-sponsoring special regional workshops on "Person-Centered Planning" (PCP) in March 2017.

PCP is one of the key elements of 2014 Federal regulations related to community settings and State Transition Plans for assuring that Medicaid waiver programs (including the SLP) are in compliance. The 2-hour workshops will cover Federal and State requirements for incorporating PCP into each resident's service plan and provide case studies to illustrate how PCP is to be used. The workshops are intended for clinical staff, but are also relevant for managers/administrators and corporate staff responsible for assuring PCP. HFS nurses will also attend.
