Person Centred Care

Many people feel something of their life has, in some way, been lost when they receive care services. Therefore, you need to be extremely careful not to take over, or be seen to. Person centred care means putting the person’s needs and rights first, focusing less on the task and more on the person.

About the course

This course explains what person centred care is about and how to put that into practice. As with all Social Care TV courses, it is easy to understand and straightforward to put into practice - exactly what you want training to be.

This isn't an "airy-fairy" course lacking in practical content, quite the opposite. It's a refreshingly information-filled course with lots of practical guidance on day-to-day person centred care in health and social care situations.
