Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 2 sections
- 1 Values
- 2 Support
At the heart of each and every one of our thoughts, decisions, actions and reactions lies a set of beliefs, ideas, and opinions which influence them. These are our values, and these are shaped throughout our lives by our own individual experiences. In the rest of this section we’ll look at the values specific to Person-Centred Care and how to work in partnership with the people you care for in order to plan a service tailored to their unique needs, wishes, and preferences.
Before you're able to offer your patients person-centred care which is tailored to their individual needs you first need to find out what those needs are. This section is all about how you can support your patients in a person-centred way. We'll look at the Care Plan; we'll consider ways of recognising and minimising sources of discomfort and pain; and then we'll see what you can do to can help your patients maintain their sense of identity and self-esteem.
About this course
Person-centred values tell you how to work in a person-centred way. Generally, there are 6 recognised values for person-centred care and they are:
Alternatively, the 6 Cs help you to understand that each individual has to be placed at the centre of their care and support plans. The plan must fit the individual, rather than the individual being made to fit an existing routine. This is also known as Person Centred Working.
Our course effectively explores the key principles and will enable carers to work in a 'person-centred' way. The course includes the legal and regulatory framework, the Care Act, tools to support person-centred approaches and risk enablement.
This course works alongside our 14 other awareness courses that make up the Care Certificate Standards.
You can access our free worksheet that has been designed to accompany our online Person Centred Care Training course. In each section, there is a box for you to
tick when you have watched the relevant slide in our course. You can also take notes that will help you during your practical assessment at work.
This course equips learners with the knowledge that's required to be put into practice in the workplace, whereby they can do the 'practical' part of their training, followed by having the Care Certificate supplied to them by their management as they meet the required standards. These courses provide part of training but practical training is still required to obtain the care certificate.
