RTC/OM HCBS Measurement Education Modules
What Does it Mean to be Person-Centered?
- People have the right to envision a life based on their personal values, preferences, and interests
- The measurement process therefore needs to provide an opportunity for them to fully voice the outcomes they desire to experience.
- To be person-centered means to focus on the person’s own perspective and the degree to which something is important to them.
- In addition a person-centered approach extends measurement to consider both what is important to the person and what is important for the person.
