What is person-centred care?

Part of Person-centred care

This video clearly illustrates what person-centred care is about, emphasises the importance of choice and control and introduces the idea that person-centred care is relevant for all adults and older people using social care services - whatever their needs or setting. People with experience of personalised services explain the impact that person-centred care has had on their lives. The video also looks at what person-centred care will mean for social care workers.

Safeguarding adults: looking out for each other to prevent abuse

This video shows how good communication with older people can improve safeguarding. In residential care it is important that staff take the time to talk to residents and to listen to their concerns. Two community projects demonstrate how people are encouraged to look out for each other and to report any concerns.

Interprofessional and inter-agency collaboration (IPIAC): the practitioner, the agency and inter-agency collaboration

Part of e-Learning courses

One of a series of e-learning resources which explore the nature of interprofessional and inter-agency collaboration (IPIAC) and improving collaborative practice. This interactive resource uses audio, video and interactive technology to examine how agencies shape professional roles and supply key resources, the interdependence of agencies and professionals, and the importance of inter-agency collaboration in supporting and safeguarding service users. The agency and inter-agency aspects of collaboration are discussed using the situation of an older man, Norman Grant and the agencies supporting him. Mr Grant’s changing health and circumstances show that flexible and systematic inter-agency collaboration are indispensable to effective support and safeguarding.

Managing risk, minimising restraint: exploring restraint

Part of e-Learning courses

One of a series of e-learning resources which explore the nature of managing risk and minimising restraint when working with older people in care homes. The resource provides an interactive exploration of definitions - what the word restraint means to different people and different types of restraint; thoughts and ideas about the use of restraint and how to minimise it. Knowing the individual, valuing the views of relatives and working as a team will help reduce the need for restraint. This resource contains audio and video.

Managing risk, minimising restraint: creating a positive culture

Part of e-Learning courses

One of a series of e-learning resources which explore the nature of managing risk and minimising restraint when working with older people in care homes. This resource explores how to create a positive culture of care to lessen the likelihood of care staff needing to use restraint; the benefits of providing learning and development opportunities that help promote a learning culture and support better decision-making about restraint; and how developing a positive physical care environment can help reduce the need for restraint. It is particularly suitable for managers and senior staff. The resource contains audio.

Managing risk, minimising restraint: decision-making processes

Part of e-Learning courses

One of a series of e-learning resources which explore the nature of managing risk and minimising restraint when working with older people in care homes.
