Dignity in Care
Dignity in care 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. While ‘dignity’ may be difficult to define, what is clear is that people know when they have not been treated with dignity and respect.
This course explores the drivers of dignity in care as something that should be integral to everything you do, not an optional extra. It discusses:
The role of the Dignity in Care Challenge and the nature of the Challenge tests.
The Health and Social Care Act 2008.
The Equality Act 2010.
The Human Rights Act 1998.
The Mental Capacity Act 2005.
The perspective of the Care Quality Commission.
The course discusses outcomes of undignified care and abuse and the importance of individual care, social inclusion, privacy, communication and offering individuals choice and control.
Delegates will learn about how to apply dignity in care to practical issues such as personal hygiene, eating and drinking, and dealing with complaints.
