Speaker information

Lui Di Venuto, President, South Australian division of the Australian Association of Gerontology

The Eastern Collaborative Project (ECP) has partnered with the Southern Services Reform Group (SSRG) to develop workshops to promote consumer independence, well-being, quality of life and capacity to remain living in a community of choice. The workshops are based on the following principles which reflect a self-management model: client-centred practice, managing your own care and support, partnership and active participation, informed decision making and goal orientated practice embedded into a solution focused approach. This model focuses on peer leadership - participants learn from each other through sharing experiences and collective problem solving. The presentation will explore the background behind the training program, results of trials and development of the train the trainer module and include tools and resources that have been developed and have been successfully embraced by participants.
