Dignity in Care, E-learning Pathway Courses, Pathway Group

  1. 1. Online Course Dignity in Care
  2. 2. Dignity in Care ‘Dignity’can be a difficult term to define. This is because dignity means different things to different people and can cover a wide range of topics. We believe that dignity is about ensuring that people in care are treated with dignity and respect in adult social care whatever the setting. The 2006 the Department of Health sought views from members of the public and health and social care staff to help identify examples where services did not treat people with dignity and respect. The study categorized the examples into four main areas, the environment that care and support being provided in, attitudes and behaviour of workers, the culture of care within the organization and in care activities. Whilst poor service must always be challenged to ensure service respects people’s dignity, we should not forget there are many examples of good practice. On completion of this module learners will have covered these learning objectives: • Understand how the people we support might feel when not treated with dignity & respect. • Know what constitutes best practise when providing services with dignity & respect. • Understand why inappropriate staff attitudes & practices must be challenged. • Ensure all staff working in adult social care employ best practise. • Understand the ten key aspects of the Department of Health’s Dignity Challenge.
