Model of Service Provision

The Specialist Support Service model of service provision adheres to a proactive regime that focuses on quality of life outcomes for the individual. This is achieved by:

  • Completion of a comprehensive assessment of the individual in order to determine individual need and the intervention required
  • Formulation of Behavioural Management Guidelines
  • Completion of Risk Assessment and Risk Management Guidelines
  • Monitoring and reviewing of target behaviours. This is achieved using data analysis, direct observation and regular liaison with the staff team via team meetings and multidisciplinary clinical review meetings in order to update clinical interventions and / or behaviour management guidelines
  • Adheres to a multi disciplinary approach working in conjunction with the staff support team, Care Manager and all relevant professionals
  • Provides staff training in preventing and responding to challenging behaviour as well as client specific training identified through the assessment process
  • Provides Post Incident Support to staff and service users

The level of intervention and clinical support required will be determined by individual need evidenced by the assessment process. In some instances this will be on a consultancy basis which may require some training provision, at other times a more intensive level is required and the clinical support will be long term for example within our Specialist Transition Services.
