PC-PAL: Using Metrics to Measure Person-Centered Practices
Assisted living communities seek to provide person-centered care, but can lack the tools to assess person-centeredness. Person-Centered Practices in Assisted Living (PC-PAL) is a new, free tool to measure and monitor person-centeredness across domains ranging from well-being and belonging to individualized care and services, workplace services, and caregiver-resident relationships. This interactive session will present the PC-PAL, which was developed by assisted living providers, staff, residents and their family members, organizational representatives, and researchers. Participants will understand how PC-PAL questionnaires were developed, how to administer and score the PC-PAL, and how to use the PC-PAL to promote person-centeredness within an organization.
