This module is aimed in giving the new Epilepsy Foundation worker a foundation in understanding the importance of the EMP and how it forms one of the central pillars in the training and service environment.
It is advisable to view the EMP guidelines first so you can understand the context of the document:
The EF worked over a couple of years in partnership with Scope, Melba Support Services, Villa Maria and the Department of Human Services to develop this template. The objective was to create a disability sector-wide template that espoused the idea of 'one person - one plan'.
As a result of this work, this partnership was awarded the 2013 Victorian Disability Sector Award for Excellence in Improving Health. It is the standard template used in all DHS residential services in Victoria and is part of DHS's policy. Many other community service organisations use the template, and we strongly promote it's use in all our service and training.
