A duty of care is the requirement that all health and social care professionals, and organisations providing health and care services, must put the interests of service users first. Health and social care professionals and service providers owe a duty of care to their service users and failure to fulfil this duty can lead to civil and possibly criminal liability. This means you must employ a reasonable level of care, to ensure they are kept safe from harm, abuse and injury.

This course is designed for health and social care professionals and service providers. Topics covered include the duty of care as a concept, its affects, what to do and where to go for advice in such dilemmas as well as practical examples of duty of care situations.
