This course is for senior staff and staff with responsibility for leading good practice.
Working with risk and supporting service users with complex needs to live their chosen lifestyles can feel difficult. Getting the balance right in respecting individual rights whilst also fulfilling our duty of care is important. Following robust procedures can help us in getting the balance right for service users.
A restrictive practice is any practice which could be construed as potentially restricting a person’s rights of choice, self determination, privacy, freedom/freedom of movement. Under the Care Act restrictive practices may need agreement by a social worker, and at times necessitate Deprivation of Liberty applications.
This course will assist participants to demonstrate they have complied with all CQC and legal requirements, and that alternatives to restrictive practices have been appropriately considered. It will help people promote & evidence good risk assessment and restrictive practices procedures, to ensure that people are not unnecessarily restricted in our desire to manage risks.
This course is restricted for Pharmacy and GP staff only.
All smokers in the country deserve high quality evidence-based behavioural support. For this to be achieved, Stop Smoking Practitioners need to be trained to a minimum standard and be able to demonstrate competence to fulfill their role.
Therefore training courses should cover relevant topics, as indicated by a set of learning outcomes. The attached document lists a set of training standards that have been agreed as essential for individual and group face-to-face smoking cessation interventions. In some cases, they are based on the need for Stop Smoking Practitioners to be able to accurately answer queries from clients on matters relating to smoking and smoking cessation. In other cases they are required for safe professional practice and in some cases they are based on a systematic analysis of behaviour change techniques that have a reasonable evidence base to support their use.
