Understanding Care

This module takes a holistic look at all aspects of care practice: discovering the role of carers, the multi-disciplinary systems designed to support patients, and topical discussions relating to society’s perceptions of care. The importance of patient-centred care is the core focus. You’ll explore how to design a bespoke care plan by considering topics of equality, diversity and inclusion, and how cultural difference can influence a patient’s care needs. This is supplemented by activities to help you develop effective communication skills and understand the journey a patient goes on through the healthcare system. This module is well-complemented by Well-being and Empathy, developing your self-awareness and personal care skills.
