Privacy and Dignity in Care eLearning course

The little things you do can make big days for the people you support. We look at how privacy and dignity are an integral part of your work with individuals and give you lots of practical guidance.

We understand the significance of preserving individual rights and upholding dignity in caregiving. Our comprehensive eLearning course is designed to empower care providers with the knowledge and skills to create a respectful and compassionate environment for their clients or patients. Explore essential topics such as confidentiality, patient autonomy, and cultural sensitivity, all while gaining insights from experienced professionals in the field.

We also review your role in supporting individuals to make choices and to participate.
