Research to inform the development of a National Framework for Person-Centred Planning

The National Disability Authority supported the HSE to conduct research and develop a national framework for person-centred planning, under the Transforming Lives programme.

The framework builds on the ‘NDA Guidelines on Person-centred Planning in the Provision of Services for People with Disabilities in Ireland’, published in 2005, but is also informed by research on learning in the intervening period. The three strands of research carried out to inform the framework for person-centred planning comprise:

  • An analysis of 50 HIQA inspection reports to ascertain what they say about person-centred planning in residential services for persons with a disability

  • A 360 degree look at a series of person-centred plans as case studies of current practice, along with interviews with key informants with knowledge of person-centred planning in residential services for persons with a disability

  • A review of the literature since the publication of the NDA Guidelines on Person-Centred Planning in 2005. The literature review is available on the HSE website.
