Additional information
Care planning relates to addressing an individual’s full range of needs whilst accounting for their circumstances and preferences. It helps individuals to become involved in decisions about their care and to achieve the outcomes they want. Care planning plays an important role in healthcare and creates a person-centred approach to care. This qualification will allow you to understand your role in supporting the preferences and needs of individuals in relation to their care and support. It also enables you to develop and implement care plans, and contribute to the review of these by observing, monitoring and reporting on the care activities you are responsible for.
