The Care Act 2014 (along with its subsequent updates) provides a single legal framework for charging for care and support. It enables local authorities to decide whether or not to charge a person for their care and support needs or for a carer’s support needs. The new Care Act assessment framework has been designed to make charging fairer and more clearly understood by everyone. Understanding it properly is essential if you work with people in need, whether in the public, private or charity sectors.£20.00 Per license (Exc VAT) Add to basket
Local authorities have a duty to inform the person which, if any, of their needs may be met by a direct payment and provide appropriate information and advice on how to use and manage direct payments.

Effective communication in healthcare is vital – patients need to be able to make important decisions about their care, and they also need the comfort and dignity that comes from the people involved in their care provision taking the time to communicate properly. When you’re dealing with potentially vulnerable or challenging individuals, it’s more important than ever. This course gives you all that you need to build your understanding of what makes effective communication and how you can apply it to your work.£20.00 Per license (Exc VAT) Add to basket
