Course Description

When working with people in a caring setting, the two most important attributes to have are dignity and privacy, both of which should be respected at all times. Additionally, medical practitioners in the United Kingdom are required to follow the General Medical Council’s ‘Good Medical Practice’ guidelines, which mandate that they must “treat patients as individuals and respect their dignity and privacy.”

This Privacy and Dignity in Care course is designed to assist healthcare professionals to promote and protect the dignity and privacy of those in their care. This course covers the definition of dignity and privacy in the healthcare industry, as well as an explanation of how the two are frequently intertwined. It also includes a number of professional tips on how to develop positive working relationships with your service users, as well as an explanation of how to overcome hurdles to dignity and privacy in a care setting.

Poor or uneven standards of dignity and respect are experienced by 23% of patients in the UK which approximates about 2.8 million people per year. Moreover, people tend to seek medical help at a very vulnerable and fragile time in their lives. Therefore, taking care of people as individuals and treating them with the respect they deserve is vital as it helps them feel supported and safe, resulting in high patient satisfaction.

Upon successful completion of this Privacy and Dignity in Care course, you will be able to promote and uphold the dignity and privacy rights of the people under your care.
