You will learn about the roles of an organization-wide team in Module 2. This team is different from the individuals who meet to support one person receiving services. An organization-wide team represents the people who receive services as well as all of the different roles within an organization. The organization-wide team may include the following people:
- Persons receiving services,
- Direct support professionals (DSPs), direct support workers (DSWs), certified nursing sssistants, licensed nurse practitioners, personal care attendants (PCAs), home health care aids or others who provide direct services to people,
- Family members, guardians, and caregivers,
- Case managers for people who receive services,
- Supervisors, managers, human resource professionals, administrators, and other leaders within organizations,
- Quality assurance professionals, and
- Professionals who provide specific therapy, behavioral support, or treatment.
The members and size of the team depends on each organization. These modules can be used to create a team, assess organizational strengths, and create an action plan to change in person-centered practices.
