Dignity in care means providing care that supports the self-respect of the person, recognising their capacities and ambitions, and does nothing to undermine it. It defines the meaning of real everyday dignity to the lives of people receiving social care, their carers, families and friends, as well as the managers and staff who provide it. In effect, this means all of us.
Paragraph 10 under the Health and Social Care Act 2007 specifies the kinds of care and treatment that ‘ensures dignity’.Here’s what the Care Quality Commission says about Regulation 10:“To meet this Regulation … providers must make sure that they provide care and treatment in a way that ensures people’s dignity and treats them with respect at all times. This includes making sure that people have privacy when they need and want it, treating them as equals and providing any support they might need to be autonomous, independent and involved in their local community.”The NNTC Dignity in Care and Care Planning course will help providers meet their obligations to comply with regulation 10.
All our dignity in care and care planning courses are run in an interactive student-centred style with all assurances given to create a safe learning environment. Please note all our courses are tailored free of charge to your requirements so may vary slightly from the stated aims and outcomes and are run in-house or virtually only.
NNTC can create a bespoke E-Learning package for your organisation. This means no more paying for individual licenses for all your employees. Please contact Jackie for details and pricing.
