ABOUT THE COURSE

The integration of the Health and Social Care sub-sectors is important in terms of being able to provide services for the well-being of individuals, and to meet the increasing demands of a growing and aging population with increasingly complex needs. Students working in health will need to be aware of integrated care pathways: a multidisciplinary approach towards anticipated care that enables an individual with identified needs to move progressively through their journey and experience positive outcomes.

The aim of this unit is to develop your understanding of an individual’s right to be involved in their own care and develop your skills in promoting this right when working with individuals. This right is, in many cases, enshrined in law and in the fundamental standards of care.

It is a critical element of person-centered care and leads to improved and often more cost-effective outcomes. You will explore the importance of working relationships within multidisciplinary settings and the impact on the individual

WHAT WILL I STUDY?

You will learn the following modules:

1 Examine the health, care, and support services available to an individual requiring multidisciplinary care

2 Assess an individual’s capacity to identify their own needs

3 Describe the impact of your own relationship with the individual and multidisciplinary teams involved in the delivery of the care pathway

4 Demonstrate the need for person-centered communication in implementing the person-centred plan
