For this assessment criterion, you will be required to demonstrate that you have agreed on roles and responsibilities with all parties that will be involved with implementing the support plan.
As well as agreeing on how the support plan will be carried out with all stakeholders, it is important to set roles and responsibilities for everyone that will be involved in its implementation. This can include support staff, care managers and the service user, as well as their family/carers and other professionals.
This sets the expectations and accountabilities of all parties involved. For example, the responsibilities of the support staff would usually include providing support in line with the care plan and reporting any changes to the individual’s needs. And the responsibilities of a doctor could include performing regular medication reviews and health checks.
It is important that all stakeholders commit to a regular care plan review process to ensure that the plan continues to meet the individuals changing needs.
