Assessor Comments: Please review attached file and resubmit. Part of your answer is co
ect and part of it is not, please read information provided and resubmit. c)Step 1: Gap analysis Compare Emmanuella’s cu
ent situation with a desired or necessary situation, then identify the difference (gaps) between these situations. Step 2: Identify Priorities Examine and prioritise Emmanuella’s needs and potential support service requirements taking into account significance of the need; severity of the need; impact of the need on other aspects of her life; her safety and security; personal priorities and goals, desired outcome; available resources; cost effectiveness and availability of funding. Step 3: Identify aspects of the need to be addressed Consider the cause of Emmanuella’s need and how it relates to other needs. Identify opportunities, such as the existing capabilities she has, existing resources she has access to and potential service and funding options available. Step 4: Identify possible solutions Identify possible solutions to address Emmanuella’s needs. Consider alternative solutions and negotiate support options with her and relevant service providers. Example response to Question 4 d)Urgent issues listed should include the following: • Risk of death • Risk of suicide • Risk of harm • Risk of homelessness e)Answers may include the following. • Housing: Accommodation support options include: private rental assistance private rental subsidies temporary accommodation emergency temporary accommodation supported and crisis accommodation affordable housing for low to moderate income earners social housing, which includes public, community and housing for Aboriginal and To
es Strait Islander peoples. In Emmanuella’s case it would be appropriate to refer to an agency who deals with emergency accommodation and supported accommodation to address her immediate need for housing and provide support for mental illness and heroin dependence. • Financial: Emmanuella is cu
ently receiving Centerlink income support; however, her cu
ent circumstances indicate that she is suffering financial hardship. She may benefit from financial counselling and money management services, and she may also require financial, food and essentials aid from non-government organisations to meet her needs. • Mental health: There are a range of mental health options available to Emmanuella, these are run by both government and non-government organisations. They include community based and inpatient programs depending upon the level of support needed. An initial mental health assessment will be required to establish her mental health needs, which may be conducted by the local community mental health team, medical officers or psychologist. • Physical health: A physical health assessment is required to determine Emmanuella’s physical health needs, which may be conducted by a medical officer or GP. This assessment will help to establish what Emmanuella’s physical health needs are, and whether refe
al is required to specialist or diagnostic services. • AOD: Both government and non-government organisations provide support for people with AOD dependence issues, refe
al may be required to services that are capable of conducting an Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) to identify which interventions are appropriate, or an Severity of Dependence Screening Instrument (SDS) to assess the degree of Emmanuella’s dependence on heroin. Identification of appropriate services can then be established. • Employment: There are a number of government and non-government services available to assist people to
oker job opportunities, identify suitable job opportunities for a person, help the person prepare for the recruitment process and obtain employment. Some agencies specialise in employment services for people with mental health issues, such a service would be beneficial for Emmanuella’s circumstances. f) By maintaining a close working relationship with relevant service providers, Greg is more likely to understand which services have the resources to meet a particular need. To keep track of the range of services available, he should have attended service network meetings and link into online service networks. To support Emmanuella, he should discuss the complexity and urgency of her needs with the potential service providers. This is an efficient way of determining her eligibility for the service. g) Risk assessment is conducted prior to assessment to identify any hazards that may pose a risk to the assessor, person being assessed, other staff and others present. h) When a hazard has been identified, Greg needs to consider how likely it is that the risks will occur (the likelihood), and what the effects may be if the risk occurs (the impact). Then he can decide what control measures should be put in place to effectively remove or control the risk. He could use a risk assessment matrix to evaluate a risk, to assess the likelihood and impact, and determine the level of the risk where these intersect on the matrix. Part of your question is
