Dignity in Care

March 15, 2016 @ 9:45 am - 4:30 pm | £75.00

According to the Social Care Institute for Excellence, Dignity is a state, quality or manner worthy of esteem or respect; and (by extension) self-respect.  Dignity in care, therefore, means the kind of care, in any setting, which supports and promotes, and does not undermine a person’s self-respect regardless of any difference.  Whilst dignity might be difficult to define, what is clear is that people know when they have not been treated with dignity.

This course is suitable for all levels of health care or trained staff working in all care environments. It promotes dignity, support and choice for all service users. Skills and knowledge attained as a result of attendance include delivery of a person-centred approach to care enabling service users to achieve and maintain the maximum level of independence, choice and control while promoting their needs and community participation.

This course covers such topics as:

  • The five essential accomplishments
  • Making choices
  • Dignity & respect
  • Competence
  • Personal autonomy
  • Integration
