Duty of Care
Duty of Care
Duty of Care’ involves the promotion of wellbeing – that is the positive way in which a person feels and thinks of themselves - and making sure that people are kept safe from harm, abuse and injury.
Child neglect and its Causes
Child neglect and its Causes
The neglect of children and young people by their primary caregivers is a significant issue that has a damaging effect on the development of affected children in both the short and long term.
Understanding your role in Health and Social Care
Understanding your role in Health and Social Care
No one can be expected to perform well in their job if they don’t fully understand what that job is! Workers in health and social care are no exception – indeed, understanding their job role is arguably much more important than in many other occupations. In this course we explore how to make sure job role and responsibilities are fully understood, what those responsibilities are likely to entail and how they impact on relationships with the people being supported, employers, members of the care team and the individual themselves.
Personal Development for workers in Health and Social care
Personal Development for workers in Health and Social care
Personal development is a lifelong process that enables you to continuously check and improve your skills. In this course we will look at what a development plan is and how it can help you develop and grow. In this course we explore how to make the most of personal development and the impact it can have on you
Equality and Diversity in Health and Social Care
Equality and Diversity in Health and Social Care
Equality and diversity are crucial to the practice of successful health and social care because they ensure that the services provided are not only accessible to everyone, but are provided in a way that promotes dignity and respect. They also ensure that care is focused on the individual, rather than having it provided in a ‘one size fits all’ package. This course aims to ensure that the learner understands what is meant by equality and diversity, and how it should be implemented within the context of health and social care.
Effective Communication in Health and Social Care
Effective Communication in Health and Social Care
Effective communication is an essential skill in the practice of health and social care because it helps to create caring, trusting and practical relationships with the individuals being cared for, their families and coworkers. Being able to communicate effectively means that workers in health and social care are more able to develop their knowledge about the people they care for, and so put the principles of person-centred care into practice. This course aims to ensure
Person Centred Practice in Health and Social Care
Person Centred Practice in Health and Social Care
Health and social care professionals provide the highest quality of care by developing strong partnerships between themselves, the individuals for whom they care and the other services that provide care and support. Person-Centred Practice, with its focus on providing personalised care that treats people with compassion and respect, provides a framework that enables health and social care professionals to create effective relationships between all parties. This course aims to ensure that the learner understands what Person-Centred Practice is, why it is important and what constitutes best practice in its implementation.
Privacy and Dignity in Health and Social Care
Privacy and Dignity in Health and Social Care
Privacy and dignity are immensely important to us all throughout our lives, whatever our age or physical or mental ability. Being able to maintain privacy and dignity has a profound effect on self-esteem, confidence and the ability to function within society. Invasion of privacy, or an attack on dignity, produces different reactions in different people – it may be annoyance or embarrassment, or a feeling of being ignored or considered irrelevant. Whatever the reaction, it will be negative and damaging.
Fluids,Nutrition and Food Safety
Fluids,Nutrition and Food Safety
In this course we consider the importance of a balanced diet, and its significance for those receiving care or support. We also take a look at the very important subject of food safety, which requires us to ensure that the food people eat is not going to cause them harm.
Safeguarding Adults In Health and Social Care
Safeguarding Adults In Health and Social Care
The Care Act 2014, which addresses the protection of adults, defines adult safeguarding as “protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect”. Safeguarding adults requires those supporting or caring for them to prevent - or at the very least reduce - the risk of significant harm from abuse or exploitation, whilst helping them to take control of their lives by making informed choices.
Safeguarding Children in Health and Social Care
Safeguarding Children in Health and Social Care
Child abuse is any action by another person – whether an adult or another child – that causes significant harm to a child. This harm can be physical, sexual or emotional. It can also involve a lack of love, care or attention since neglect, whatever form it takes, can be just as damaging to a child as physical abuse. Safeguarding children from abuse or neglect is everyone’s responsibility, and when a worker in health and social care encounters children during their day-to-day work, it’s part of their job to make sure that their wellbeing is safeguarded. This course aims to ensure that the learner is able to recognise all forms of abuse and neglect, understands the effects of child abuse, and knows what action to take should they encounter it
Basic Life Support in Health and Social Care
Basic Life Support in Health and Social Care
Basic life support is a level of medical care which is used for victims of life-threatening illnesses or injuries until they can be given full medical care at a hospital. In this course we explore how to administer basic life support correctly. • Administering CPR • What is basic life support for adults and children • Clearing obstructed airways (adults and children)
Handling Information in Health and Social Care
Handling Information in Health and Social Care
Confidentiality is an important right of people who receive care and support. It is part of the relationship of trust that individuals have with healthcare support workers and adult social care workers. Information about an individual should not be shared with anybody else, even the person’s family or friends, without the individual’s permission. You must ensure that you protect private information from accidental viewing or hearing. For example, if you are talking to a colleague about someone, you should consider whether other people could overhear your conversation.
Infection Prevention and Control
Infection Prevention and Control
Infection and infectious diseases in humans are caused when harmful germs, known as pathogens, enter the body and grow. These micro-organisms are so small they can only be seen by using a microscope. For people living in care homes, infections can be serious and, in some cases, life-threatening. They can also make existing medical conditions worse. Regular contact with staff, other residents, family and friends and the shared living space all mean infection can easily be passed around. It is therefore vital to take the steps that can help prevent infection occurring. The aim of this course is to familiarise yourself with these and provide you with useful ways of preventing them.
Mental Health, Dementia and Learning Disability
Mental Health, Dementia and Learning Disability
Mental health problems, dementia and learning disabilities affect a substantial proportion of the UK population in any given year. It is thereforeimportant that those who work with people who suffer from, or are at risk of suffering from, these conditions can recognise typical symptoms and react with compassion and understanding.
Health and Safety in Health and Social Care
Health and Safety in Health and Social Care
The main reason for health and safety legislation is to protect people at work and those who are affected by work activities. Legislation, or laws are in place so that everyone understands how they should act, what is acceptable and what is not. And this is something that should be taken very seriously in health and social care.
