GPEP’s Care Planning Services

Introduction

In addition to education, GPEP also offers individualized care planning for clients living in Vancouver’s direct and affiliate residential care facilities.

Through active learner participation, staff engage in a collaborative and interdisciplinary process attempts to discover where the behaviour is coming from using the GPEP Model and understand the resident’s unmet needs. Staff education is then embedded in this process and the outcome of the Care Review Process is a care plan or care strategies which adhere to the principles of person centre-care and provide staff with a better understanding of the person.

A more detailed description of the GPEP Model and GPEP’s Care Review Process will follow.
