Course description

Duty of Care

Duty of Care’ involves the promotion of wellbeing – that is the positive way in which a person feels and thinks of themselves - and making sure that people are kept safe from harm, abuse, and injury. It therefore requires workers in health and social care to always act in the best interest of the people they care for, and their co-workers. It also requires them not to act, or fail to act, in a way that results in harm, to act within their competence, and to avoid taking on anything they do not believe they can safely do.

Duty of Care' is part of the code of conduct for healthcare support workers, and adult social care workers in England, and is usually part of their job description.

This course will enable the learner to understand the meaning of 'Duty of Care', and how to comply with its key components.
