People Perform Different Social Roles

Social roles involve how people are actively engaged with the world around them, including clubs, community groups, and places of worship. When conducting a Personal Outcome Measures® interview, how can someone’s definition of a social role be more clearly understood? What criteria should determine if the outcome and supports are present? How can you gather additional information about this indicator? This webinar looks at how the Personal Outcome Measures® discovery process can be used to explore social roles.

People Live in Integrated Environments

People with disabilities not only have the right to access the same environments as anyone else, but also engage, belong, and connect with others in those environments. These situations include where people live, work, hang out, and have fun. So how can the Personal Outcome Measures® be used to better understand if and how people with disabilities live in integrated environments? What are some ways that POM interviewers can improve their information-gathering skills tied to this indicator? What are some common challenges you may face in learning about the outcome? This webinar confronts these questions and more involving the indicator, People Live In Integrated Environments.

People Exercise Rights

Whether it’s voting, privacy, fair wages, or freedom of speech, people with disabilities have the same rights as those without disabilities. Despite the inalienable value that we associate with rights, people with disabilities are often prevented from exercising their rights. In this webinar, we’re sharing how the Personal Outcome Measures® (POM) can direct your discovery about people’s rights. From asking the “right” questions to making determinations about outcomes and supports, we’ll explore the indicator People Exercise Rights. During the webinar, we will also offer solutions to potential dilemmas you may face during the POM interview process.

People are Treated Fairly

It’s not an abstract ideal but a fact – people with disabilities must be treated the same as those without disabilities. Still, people with disabilities are often not listened to, not informed, and are not providing consent for restrictions that are happening in their lives. The Personal Outcome Measures® indicator “People are treated fairly” is rooted in the basic belief that all people deserve to be heard, make informed choices, participate in, and receive due process. In this webinar, we will explore how to discover, apply, and measure this outcome, and explore best practices for organizational supports.

People Experience Continuity and Security

One certainty of life is that change is inevitable. There’s no time in recent history where that has been more apparent than the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether it’s the loss of someone we love, the absence of those we rely on, or the economic insecurities brought on by crisis – it is crucial that we both learn about and help support continuity and security in the lives of people with disabilities. In the Personal Outcome Measures® (POM) indicator ‘People experience continuity and security,’ we look at the consistencies, disruptions, and resources in people’s lives. Through this webinar, we’ll share specific tips for discovering what this indicator means to people, and offer guidance in determining the presence of not only the outcome but also supports that help people achieve continuity and security.

People Choose Services

“I like to make as many choices as I can,” shares Amy, a person receiving services. Despite our inherent human desire to make decisions about issues that impact our lives, through our Personal Outcome Measures® (POM) research we find that just 37.1% people with disabilities choose their services. From doctors and banks to case management and support staff, it’s essential that people receiving services are choosing those services. In this webinar, we’ll share guidance for person-centered discovery about the POM indicator ‘People choose services.’ Attendees will leave with ideas for gathering information, tips for decision-making about the outcome and associated supports, and action steps for helping people to achieve this outcome.
