Duty of Care in Health and Social Care
This Duty of care in health and social care online training course aims at helping the learner understand their responsibilities in ensuring that their code of conduct does not fall below the code of conduct. All health & social care workers have a responsibility to ensure that their actions or omissions do not harm the safety and well being of service users and members of public.
Duty of care involves:
- Promoting people’s rights.
- Protecting people from harm, abuse and injury.
- Promoting people’s wellbeing.
- Providing safe and compassionate care
As a health and social care professional, you have a duty of care to everyone present in your workplace, including yourself, your coworkers, and those you help. For example, if you work in a care environment, your duty of care to maintenance workers, caterers, housekeepers and other types of workers is just equally important as it is to service users.
Code of Conduct
The duty of care is part of the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England, and will usually be detailed in your job description. The Code of Conduct tells you what behaviours are expected of you as a health and social care worker and it is vital that you possess the knowledge and skills to act on your duty of care in health and social care role.
Upon the successful completion of our duty of care online training course, you will undertake a 20 question quiz with a pass mark of 80%. The questions are automatically marked and you will be automatically certificated. If you don’t pass, you can retake the assessment as many times as desired until you pass.
Why choose Coral & Reed courses?
Duty of Care Contribution to Safeguarding
By creating a moral and legal foundation for defending those receiving care, duty of care plays a critical part in safeguarding. Additionally, it calls for carers to prioritise the safety and well-being of the people under their care and to take the necessary precautions to avoid injury.
The responsibility of care also contributes to the development of a culture of security and safety by establishing standards for the provision of care, lowering the likelihood of abuse or neglect. The responsibility to give care also makes sure that carers are responsible for their actions and can be held accountable if they fall short of the required standard. As a result, it encourages healthcare professionals to act ethically and responsibly and fosters trust between them and the people they care for.
