ISPIR works with people who have given their consent to be involved. It is voluntary, meaning that no person has to be involved against their will, or the decision of their legal guardian.
It is important for ISPIR to confirm that the person is aware of the referral and understands what they have been referred for. ISPIR suggests that when discussing the program with a potential consumer, a copy of the brochure and/or link to the website is provided.
Informed consent must be given when the referral is made to ISPIR and will be confirmed when a person starts to work with a Support Facilitator.
Consent may be withdrawn at any time.
Any supplementary information to accompany the referral is encouraged. The ISPIR Referral Information Checklist may be used for this purpose.
