Carers Needs Assessments can be a vital source of support for carers. All too often in the past, though, only a small proportion of carers have been assessed and outcomes have tended to be patchy at best.
Our Understanding Carers Assessments online training course has been designed to change that: it provides your staff with an understanding of who has a right to an assessment, what forms an assessment can take, and how assessments can be conducted effectively, so that they deliver positive outcomes. All in a highly interactive and cost-effective package that can be accessed by your staff anytime, anyplace.
The Understanding Carers Assessments training course is made up of four bite-sized sections:
Introduces carers and their needs, and the laws designed to protect them.
Preparing for an assessment
Outlines the different forms of assessment, and how staff and the carer can prepare for an assessment.
Carrying out an assessment
Explores some of the key skills staff need in order to carry out effective assessments.
