Privacy and Dignity - for Health and Social Care
Privacy and dignity is something that we take for granted. When you are caring for someone, however, it can be challenging to respect their privacy and dignity whilst supporting them with day to day activities. In this course, we demonstrate how you can maintain privacy and dignity in a health and social care setting.
This course is aimed at:
- New members of staff in Healthcare Support Worker roles
- New members of staff in Adult Social Care Worker roles
- Any staff members who provide direct care to patients or individuals needing support
This course will also be useful for:
- Staff moving into new roles within their organisation

In this four module course you will learn about the importance of privacy and dignity and how they can be maintained, as well as the principles of self-care and how to support a person to make their own decisions. The knowledge element of standard 7 of the Care Certificate is covered in this course.
