The PCP is a methodology to plan and coordinate care services in a way that is dynamic, flexible and adapted to each service user, regardless of their vulnerability, needs, or specific circumstances.
The PCP’s approach is to empower service users. It gives them a sense of responsibility – making them more independent – and the status of partner, on equal terms with workers and relatives.
Description This version of the Personalised Care Plan (PCP) development guide was drawn up in the context of the Leonardo da Vinci Multilateral Projects "Transfer of Innovation" programme. The following organisations and their partners took part in this project: CEDIS (European Committee for the Development of Social Integration – initiated the project and created the first draft of this guide) from France, Altea España from Spain, Questao de Equilibrio from Portugal, Siksali Development Center from Estonia, SOS Children Village from Latvia and Les EPI de Genève (Public Institutions for Integration) from Switzerland. Following the research and experimentation carried out by the different teams of social workers, the initial methodology has been improved.
This Personalised Care Plan development guide aims to provide guidance to anyone desiring to structure in a personalised and dynamic fashion the care they offer to service users in their ward or institution.
The PCP methodology is particularly useful to social and medico-social workers, but also to service users themselves, their families and volunteers involved
Using GEPAP allows : The PCP and its implementation within social and medico-social services and institutions be a way to comply with the laws and regulations in force, demanding that each service user be given a prevalent role in deciding the conditions of the care they receive. The implementation of the PCP guarantees :1. The recognition of the rights and liberties of those who, because of their age, mental or physical condition or social situation, are denied them,
2. The respect of the principles of Social Empowerment
3. The service user’s full participation as an equal member of the PCP team.
4. A transdisciplinary team
5. A general and relevant assessment of the service user’s capacities
6. The definition of realistic long-term goals
7. A detailed allocation of responsibilities to each team member
