One of the biggest headaches for health and social care
workers is how to make sense of their duty of care. On the one hand we're told
that we must take steps to ensure safety and on the other hand we need to respect
people's rights to make their own decisions, even if they're risky. This can be
a delicate balance to strike.
It's true that the law surrounding duty of care can be
complicated but care workers aren't expected to have the same knowledge as
barristers. We're expected to understand the basic principles of care law, to
know what to do if we're unsure and we have to act reasonably. We don't even
need to be right every time. We only need to be reasonable.
This 90 minute webinar/tutorial is designed for workers who
are far too busy delivering care to spend their time reading through long
reports of legal precedent. It covers the basic points we all need to be safe
'at the coal face' of care delivery in a practical, work-based way that is both
engaging and understandable.
Delivered in plain English, the basic message of 'Hanged if
you do - Hanged if you don't' is
By taking the mystery and complicated jargon out of the
equation, Stuart Sorensen guides workers step by step from basic principles to a
solid understanding of duty of care. Real life stories and clear examples are
