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
- Welcome and Learning Objectives
- Definition of Dignity
- Safeguarding and Dignity
- Social Policy, Legislation & Summary
