We welcomed Tom Burden to our February meeting in Carlisle.
Tom has been doing a lot of work on developing an updated version of Care Assessment, which is (hopefully) far more user friendly. This will be what Social Workers and Occupational Therapists use when they come to assess a person. In addition to this piece of development he has simultaneously been devising a self assessment version of the same form, which would allow someone to start this process themselves, and therefore be able to input their details and issues in a planned way before they meet up with a Social Worker or Occupational Therapist.
We have been speaking to people who might use a self assessment tool or a supported self assessment tool and Tom offered our members the chance to be included in the trial.
