OPWDD's The Staff Action Plan & Delivery of Habilitation Service

WebEx Training OPWDD will be hosting two WebEx sessions that will provide further information on the requirements and expectations for Staff Action Plan development and service delivery (Administrative Memorandum # 2018-09) as well as:

  • The shift from habilitation plans to Staff Action Plans;

  • Where and how the Staff Action Plan fits into the life planning process and how habilitation providers translate Life Plan goals into Staff Action Plans;

  • Expectations for ongoing collaboration and coordination between the person served, service provider and Care Manager; and,

  • Examples of quality outcome indicators for service delivery based on Staff Action Plans

The sessions will be held on:

  • December 10, 2018 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm; and

  • January 15, 2019 from 9:30-11:30

All provider staff that are responsible for Staff Action Plan development and habilitation service delivery should attend one of these sessions. Both sessions will provide the same information so attendees should plan to attend only one session.
