Duty of Care

Skills for Health
Delivery Method: eLearning

This session aims to illustrate the legal requirement for duty of care to staff and uses examples from a number of different health and social care settings.

In particular, it looks at how duty of care is essential for safe practice, the sorts of things that can and do go wrong, how staff can work through dilemmas and how comments and complaints can improve services.

The session also looks at the way poor communication between staff can create patterns of behaviour that lead to mistrust, which in turn affects duty of care.

This session makes use of reflective learning techniques and encourages learners to use the reflective note-making facility to build on their understanding of duty of care and their practice. The accompanying assessment tests the key points.
