Review the Intake Assessment: Maria handout, which contains the case study and the intake assessment found in the Week 2 Resources.
Complete a Service Plan for the case scenario using the Service Plan Template provided in the Week 3 Resources and address the items below within your Service Plan:
Identify/evaluate the service user’s needs and goals.
Identify if you foresee any ethical issues and address how you would respond to these issues.
Justify your plan based on the unique needs and sociocultural factors of the service user and the family.
Apply advocacy and service coordination skills in case management.
Provide a brief summary of the case management steps that would need to be followed in developing, implementing, and monitoring the progress of a service plan.
In this section, write a 1- to 2-page analysis justifying your plan that is based on your service user(s), their strengths, and their needs. How would you ensure that the plan is person-centered? (That is: How would you empower the service user to engage in the goal planning instead of relying on you for answers?)
What is missing from your plan, based on gaps in the case study? List two or three further questions you would ask to get the needed information. How might you engage the service user if they only answer the questions with “I don’t know”?
