Unit 1:Equality, diversity and rights in health and social care
In this first part of the course we will be looking at how equality, diversity and inclusion are used within health and social care and the reasons for adopting an inclusive approach. By doing this you can include each individual that you care for and ensure they receive care to the highest possible standard.
Unit 2: Human growth and development
In this unit we will look at the various stages of development that humans undergo throughout their lifetime. This is a very difficult area of study as human life is incredibly complex and experiences differ for every individual. We will look at some work by top theorists on human development and explore the different stages that have been developed by psychologists.
Unit 3: Safeguarding in Health and Social Care
Safeguarding and looking out for the well-being of those that you care for should always be something that is understood and checked within a health and social care setting. Doing this ensures that each person you care for is fully protected and safe from any potential risk which may come their way.
