Supporting Person-centred Thinking and Planning in Learning Disability: A Care Quality Guide for health and social care staff and carers aims to help refresh, develop or extend learning in key areas of learning disability practice.
Using thinking and practice activities and information written by expert authors, this convenient Care Quality Guide offers an engaging, value for money, simple and flexible way of self-learning about the key facts of person-centred approaches in learning disability.
If you are new to working with a particular client group or in a new role, you can use the material to quickly develop knowledge you will need, and where appropriate, work towards a relevant qualification.
If you are a more experienced worker, you can use the guides to refresh your learning and meet the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Continuous Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
If you are a manager, you can use these guides with staff in the context of supervision and CPD, and to contribute towards meeting Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) standards.
This guide also provides underpinning knowledge for Qualifications and Credit Framework QCF unitLD 202: Support person-centred thinking and planning, and the thinking and practice activities can contribute to evidence of learning.
