Course Overview

No one can be expected to perform well in their job if they don’t fully understand what that job is! Workers in health and social care are no exception – indeed, understanding their job role is arguably much more important than in many other occupations.

In this course we explore how to make sure job role and responsibilities are fully understood, what those responsibilities are likely to entail and how they impact on relationships with the people being supported, employers, members of the care team and the individual themselves.
