Care workers are introduced to the concepts of access and application of policies and procedures, the organisation’s aims & values and working in partnership with other workers and the service user. It also considers the responsibilities a care worker has, as set out in the General Social Care Council’s Code of Practice for Social Care Workers. This video will help them answer such questions as: What standard of conduct is expected of me? What tasks and activities will I be expected to carry out? Where do I go for advice, information and support? Why should I support the involvement of carers and family? This title, contributes to improving understanding of the various interrelating issues that combine to ensure the role of the care worker is central to promoting good principles of care that meet the individual needs of service users.
