A group of professionals who advocate for the human rights of the disabled. They define and perceive the "disabler" as outside the person. This emerging perspective considers that some of the most important problems of people with disabilities reside in inflexible and insensitive health organizations that are more interested in maximizing profits and maintaining the status quo than assisting them with what they believe to be their actual needs. Advocates tend to view people with disabilities (a) as experts on their particular condition and (b) as the most appropriate persons to decide the kind and the course of treatments they will receive. The disability rights movement operationalizes client self-determination as being active and informed involvement with the key decision-making processes central to the medical and rehabilitative treatment of the person being treated.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
