The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the difficulties highlighted by Ntinas around supporting change in services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
This commentary examines what is needed for change and reflects on staff culture.
The authors propose that it is not sensible to separate the culture of a service from the implementation of person-centred approaches and attempt to map how the concepts overlap and are interconnected.
Whilst some elements of culture are clearly important in order to start the process of change, other elements will change as an intervention is introduced and embedded.
