Devinder Singh, B.Eng, MBA. is the moderator of this panel discussion, and Michael Chester is one of the panelist who discusses, the perspective on the balance between keeping people safe and adhering to bureaucratic reporting processes, particularly in the context of supporting individuals with disabilities. Michael reflects on the question of finding the right equilibrium between the duty of care and the dignity of risk, drawing a parallel with a similar dilemma faced by Peter.

Michael emphasizes the importance of recognizing the inherent opportunity for each person to take risks and lead a life of their choosing within the boundaries of safe practices.

He highlights the limited recognition within the external health profession sector regarding the need for cooperation in ensuring that behavior support plans enable individuals to exercise the dignity of risk. Michael concludes by thanking the audience for their attention.
