Project Description:
This project involves care plans written collaboratively with, and from the perspective of, services users.

Service users are given the opportunity to write their own care plans. Some often decline, so care plans will be written by nurses and directed by service users. The care plan is formulated in the service users own words. This allows them to recognise their own unique verbal expressions reinforcing ownership of the plan. Service users will be asked to sign their care plan and are provided with a copy for themselves.
