Code: BH 17/025 Accessible Information - Course by e-LfH

The Accessible Information Standard became law in 2016 and this course will help social care and health staff understand their legal duties.

This course is mandatory for all staff in BHCC Health and Adult Social Care. 

It will also be of interest to staff who engage with public, including those in the independent and voluntary sector as it considers how to support people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss with information.

 

The new accessible information guide has been developed by Brighton & Hove City Council to improve our communications with people and help us meet our legal duties under the accessible information standard for health and adult social care services. The standard defines a consistent approach to make sure people with a disability, impairment or sensory loss can access and understand the information they need.

 

The guidance has been broadened to make it relevant for everyone to use. It includes suggestions to improve the way people communicate face-to-face, on the phone and in writing, as well as advice on producing information in different formats (such as large print, audio, easy read, translations or braille), or providing interpreters and other communications support.

Code: BH 20/052 An Introduction to Coaching (Skill Boosters)

Coaching is a development approach that is focused around helping people to recognise and draw on their own resources in order to face the challenges and demands of their job.

 

As such, it represents an investment in building the capacity of your people and developing the long-term skills and abilities of your workforce and can be particularly effective for people who are new to a leadership or management role. In this short course, psychologist Sarah Lewis shows how coaching conversations can support your training and development goals and demonstrates key techniques and strategies through a series of dramatised conversations.

Code: BH 17/041 Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC)

This course is mandatory for all staff undertaking Care Act assessments

 

To access the course click Continue in the box above.

 

Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding is National Health Service funding available to individuals to pay for their package of care and support when their primary support needs are due to their health needs.

 

 

Eligibility for Continuing Health Care Funding means that the provision of services that meet a person's health and social care needs are funded and delivered by the NHS and who has governance of this delivery.

 

 

Correctly identifying eligibility for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding has financial benefits for the individual who might otherwise be self funding their care. It is illegal for a local authority to fund and provide care to those eligible for CHC funding (people who have a primary health care need) and without correct identification of people who might be eligible, the local authority might illegally fund and provide care to people, which would impact on the Community Care budget. Therefore, staff in Brighton & Hove City Council Assessment Services have an important role in identifying individuals who might be eligible for CHC Funding.
