About this course
This Privacy & Dignity Training Course is an effective way to learn how to provide personalised care to individuals while making sure that they remain in control of their own care plans where possible. You should help them to be independent where practicable while respecting their privacy & dignity.
In the Care Certificate, privacy is defined as 'giving space to someones when & where they need it' or 'treating personal information confidentially'.
Dignity can be defined as 'focusing on the value of every individual, including respecting their views, choices and decisions', 'not making assumptions about how they want to be treated', 'working with care and compassion' 'communicating directly with the individual whenever possible.'
Standard 7 of the Care Certificate - Privacy & Dignity - requires staff to:
- Understand the principles that underpin privacy & dignity
- Help individuals maintain privacy & dignity in care
- Support individuals to make choices
- Support them in making choices about their care
- Understand & support active participation
- Support individuals in active participation in their own care
This course works alongside our 14 other awareness courses that make up the Care Certificate Standards.
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.
