Code of Ethics Tenet 5: Justice, Fairness, and Equity: https://www.youtube.com/embed/MiB1QIVICWk
Justice, Fairness, and Equity
As a DSP, I will affirm the human rights as well as the civil rights and responsibilities of the people I support. I will promote and practice justice, fairness, and equity for the people I support and the community as a whole.
Furthermore, as a DSP, I will:
- Assist the people I support to access opportunities and resources in the community that are available to everyone.
- Facilitate the expression and understanding of rights and responsibilities with the people I support.
- Understand the guardianship or other legal representation of the people I support, and work in partnership with legal representatives to assure that the person’s preferences and interests are honored.
