  36. 36. Active ParticipationParticipation operates at many levels; it can range from individual control over day-to-day decisions about what to wear, what to eat and how to spend one’s time, to collective decisions about service governance or commissioningParticipation is not simply about being present or taking part but should be based upon having some influence over decisions and actionIssues of power and controlPerson-centred means "every person who receives sup- port … will have choice and control over the 36shape of that support in all care settings."
  37. 37. Benefits of Active ParticipationWay of working that recognises an individual’s right to parti- cipate in the activities and relationships of everyday life as independently as possible; the individual is regarded as an active partner in their own care or support, rather than as a passive recipientIncreased confidence and self-esteemChance to acquire new skillsGreater satisfactionImproved quality of lifeMay also help create a stronger sense of 37 community
  38. 38. Barriers to Active ParticipationThe Individual: low self confidence; lack of motivation; lack of practice (learned helplessness); consequences of loss & dealing with and reacting to it; physical changes; isolation; limiting long term conditions; anxiety; have very set routines; physical states, cognitive states, emotional statesSocial environment: people making assumptions; missing opportunities to participate; negative attitudes and behaviour; poor communication, poor supportive relationships; organisational cultures & boundariesPhysical environment: poor access; poor transport opportunities; disabling built environmentEconomic environment: individual financial 38 resources; eligibility for benefits
  39. 39. Reducing Barriers & Encouraging Active ParticipationEffective communication adapted to the individualTake time to get to know the individualSupporting the individual with SMART planningEncourage the person to ‘be in charge’Celebrate all achievements – no matter how smallFocus on ‘abilities’ and strenghtsSet realistic expectationsBuild person-centred partnershipsFocus on positivesSeek advice – If in doubt, always seek advice from your su- pervisorApproach support work with a ‘detective’s eye’ – look out for opportunities for participation & self-careSignposting to information, services, groups 39Discuss & signpost to assistive technologies

  43. 43. Supporting individuals to make informed choices about their livesMental Capacity Act Code of Practice – how to help individuals make their own decisionsProviding relevant informationCommunicating in an appropriate wayMaking the person feel at easeSupporting the person, can anyone else help or support or express a view – who can they talk it through with 43
  44. 44. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesProviding relevant informationTake time to explain anything that might help the person make adecision. It is important that they have access to all the information theyneed to make an informed decision.Try not to give more detail than the person needs – this might confuse them.In some cases, a simple, broad explanation will be enough. But it must notmiss out important information.What are the risks and benefits? Describe any foreseeable consequences ofmaking the decision, and of not making any decision at all.Explain the effects the decision might have on the person and those close tothem – including the people involved in their care.If they have a choice, give them the same information in a balanced way forall the options.For some types of decisions, it may be important to give access toadvice from elsewhere. This may be independent or specialistadvice (for example, from a medical practitioner or a financialor legal adviser). But it might simply be advice from trusted 44friends or relatives.
  45. 45. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesCommunicating in an appropriate wayAsk people who know the person well about the best form of commu-nication (try speaking to family members, carers, daycentre staff or support workers). They may also know somebody theperson can communicate with easily, or the time when it is best tocommunicate with them.Use simple language. Where appropriate, use pictures, objects or illus-trations to demonstrate ideas.Speak at the right volume and speed, with appropriate words and sen-tence structure. It may be helpful to pause to checkunderstanding or show that a choice is available.Break down difficult information into smaller points that are easy tounderstand. Allow the person time to consider and understand eachpoint before continuing.It may be necessary to repeat information or go back 45over a point several times. (continues)
  46. 46. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesCommunicating in an appropriate wayIs help available from people the person trusts (relatives, friends, GP, socialworker, religious or community leaders)? If so, make sure the person’s rightto confidentiality is respected.Be aware of cultural, ethnic or religious factors that shape a person’s way ofthinking, behaviour or communication.If necessary, consider using a professional language interpreter. Even if aperson communicated in English or Welsh in the past, they may have lostsome verbal skills (for example, because of dementia). They may now preferto communicate in their first language. It is often more appropriate to use aprofessional interpreter rather than to use family members.If using pictures to help communication, make sure they are relevant and theperson can understand them easily. For example, a red bus may represent aform of transport to one person but a day trip to another.Would an advocate (someone who can support and representthe person) improve communication in the current situation? 46
  47. 47. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesCommunicating in an appropriate wayHelping people with specific communication or cognitive problems Wherepeople have specific communication or cognitive problems, the followingsteps can help:Find out how the person is used to communicating. Do they use pictureboards or Makaton (signs and symbols for people with communication orlearning difficulties)? Or do they have a way of communicating that is onlyknown to those close to them?If the person has hearing difficulties, use their preferred method of commu-nication (for example, visual aids, written messages or sign language).Where possible, use a qualified interpreter.Are mechanical devices such as voice synthesisers, keyboards or othercomputer equipment available to help?If the person does not use verbal communication skills, allow more time tolearn how to communicate effectively.For people who use non-verbal methods of communication, theirbehaviour (in particular, changes in behaviour) can provide 47indications of their feelings.
  48. 48. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesCommunicating in an appropriate waySome people may prefer to use non-verbal means of communication andcan communicate most effectively in written form using computers or othercommunication technologies. This is particularly true for those with autisticspectrum disordersFor people with specific communication difficulties, consider other types ofprofessional help (for example, a speech and language therapist or an expertin clinical neuropsychology 48
  49. 49. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesMaking the person feel at ease:Location - In terms of location, consider the following:Where possible, choose a location where the person feels most atease. For example, people are usually more comfortable in their ownhome than at a doctor’s surgery.Would the person find it easier to make their decision in a relevantlocation? For example, could you help them decide about medicaltreatment by taking them to hospital to see what is involved?Choose a quiet location where the discussion can’t be easilyinterrupted.Try to eliminate any background noise or distractions (for example, thetelevision or radio, or people talking).Choose a location where the person’s privacy and dignity can beproperly respected. 49
  50. 50. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesMaking the person feel at ease:Timing - In terms of timing, consider the following:Try to choose the time of day when the person is most alert – somepeople are better in the mornings, others are more lively in the after-noon or early evening. It may be necessary to try several times beforea decision can be made.If the person’s capacity is likely to improve in the foreseeable future,wait until it has done so – if practical and appropriate. For example,this might be the case after treatment for depression or a psychoticepisode. Obviously, this may not be practical and appropriate if thedecision is urgent.Some medication could affect a person’s capacity (for example, med-ication which causes drowsiness or affects memory). Can the decisionbe delayed until side effects have subsided? 50
  51. 51. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesMaking the person feel at ease:Timing continued -Take one decision at a time – be careful to avoid making the persontired or confused.Don’t rush – allow the person time to think things over or ask for clari-fication, where that is possible and appropriate.Avoid or challenge time limits that are unnecessary if the decision isnot urgent. Delaying the decision may enable further steps to be takento assist people to make the decision for themselves. 51
  52. 52. Empowering Decision-making and ResponsibilitiesSupporting the person:Many people find it helpful to talk things over with people they trust – orpeople who have been in a similar situation or faced similar dilemmas. Forexample, people with learning difficulties may benefit from the help of a des-ignated support worker or being part of a support network.If someone is very distressed (for example, following a death of someoneclose) or where there are long-standing problems thataffect someone’s ability to understand an issue, it may be possible to delay adecision so that the person can have psychological therapy, if needed.Some organisations have produced materials to help people who need sup-port to make decisions and for those who support them. Some of this materi-al is designed to help people withspecific conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease orprofound learning disability.It may be important to provide access to technology. Forexample, some people who appear not to communicate wellverbally can do so very well using computers. 52
  53. 53. Assessing and Managing RiskPeople have the right to live their lives to the fullas long as that doesn’t stop others from doing thesameHelp people to have choice and control over their livesRecognise that making a choice can involve some riskRespect people’s rights and those of their family carersHelp people understand their responsibilities and the implic-ations of their choices, including any risksAcknowledge that there will always be some risk, and thattrying to remove it altogether can outweigh the quality of lifebenefits for the personContinue existing arrangements for safeguardingpeople 53
  54. 54. Using risk assessment to support informed choicesUsing format to help think about risks and ways to manage them or agree unacceptable risks, all can help to make informed choicesWith individual do 5 steps to risk assessment STEP 1: Look for the hazards STEP 2: Decide who might be harmed and how STEP 3: Evaluate the risks and decide whether the existing precautions are adequate or whether more should be done STEP 4: Record your findings STEP 5: Review your assessment and revise it if necessaryDiscuss and agree with individual actions to be taken (including by them) to minimise 54 risk
