Person Centred Care Champions

Course overview

This two day course has been developed to support staff in the role of a Person Centred Care Champion. A champion has an interest and passion for person centred care & support, with the ability to lead and inspire others to use person centred approaches in their service delivery.
Learners will gain a greater understanding of person centered approaches, how to promote these in the workplace and how requirements of legislation and best practice drive the implementation of these approaches.
The knowledge gained from this course will support champions to promote good practice in person centred care whilst working in services, including residential care homes, hospitals, supported living, housing, domiciliary and homecare.
This course is delivered using a range of methods and resources including:
Group discussions, practical activities, worksheets, small group activities and DVD clips.
This course has been developed and mapped to:
The Care Certificate - Standard 5 Work in a person centred way
NICE Guidelines on Person Centred Care
