Duty of Care Level 1
A webinar on Duty of Care Level 1 is designed to help healthcare support workers and adult social care workers understand their legal and ethical responsibilities in providing care to individuals. The aim is to ensure that participants have a clear understanding of their duty of care and how to fulfil it, with consideration for legislation, workplace policies, and possible conflicts.
The webinar will cover various topics, such as the definition of duty of care, the legal and ethical frameworks that underpin it, and the importance of providing safe and effective care. Participants will learn about the various legislation and regulations that govern the provision of care, such as the Health and Safety at Work Act, the Data Protection Act, and the Mental Capacity Act.
The webinar is mapped to various industry standards, including the Skills for Care Care Certificate Standards 1-15, the Care Quality Commission, the Skills for Health Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF), and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) QS123. Successful candidates will be issued with a certificate that is valid for three years, which will demonstrate their understanding of their duty of care and their commitment to upholding the highest standards of care.
The duration of the webinar is 1.5 hours, which makes it an efficient and effective way for healthcare support workers and adult social care workers to develop their knowledge and skills in fulfilling their duty of care. This course costs £170 for up to 12 learners. Prices may vary based on your requirements.
