Staying the Course: How to Be a Compass on the Path to Self-Direction.
Self-directed service models are constantly changing. The intersection of these changes to LTSS policy and waiver programs shape the design and service delivery models in a self-directed program. This workshop will engage attendees in their roles and relationships to a self-directed consumer and their program. The desired output is to draft a commitment to continuing the course of self-direction by individual contribution and wiliness to approach the changing landscape to better serve consumers.

The Roles of Case Managers in Self-Direction: Empowering Independence
Gerianne Prom and Danielle Skenadore
Self-directed programs provide essential services to vulnerable populations. ADRCs play a pivotal role in explaining self-directed program options within and alongside Managed Care LTSS. When new program models are compared to traditional long-term care supports, it is clear that the role of case managers is changing. This session will evaluate the key paradigm shift shaping the role and identify considerations for consumers choosing self-direction. Attend this session and participate in a discussion of challenges as viewed by I&R leaders.
