‘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.

This module will cover various areas of good practice in care, focusing on subjects including what consitutes best practice when providing services with dignity and respect, why inappropriate staff attitudes must be challenged, and key aspects of the Department of Health’s Dignity Challenge.

See below for further information.

Product Description

In 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. These included the environment that care and support are provided in, the attitudes and behaviour of workers, and the culture of care within the organisation 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 and respect
  • Know what constitutes best practise when providing services with dignity and respect
  • Understand why inappropriate staff attitudes and 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
