This course primarily educates students about effective care plans in the UK health system.

We all experience health and well-being in different ways.  We can be suddenly struck down with a virus, or a fall at work.  We then have to take time off and allow ourselves to heal and recover.  Should the virus lead to serious illness, or the fall lead to a surgery then this will involve a myriad of various health professionals. Each with their own records, reports and supporting guidelines.  Transformation from health to illness to recover can be a time of great stress and it can feel as though the person is lost in the paperwork.  

In this course, which follows on from Effective communication in care, we look into effective care planning.  We look at the CQC regulations, legislation as well as what are care plans, types of care plans, what a plan of care is and not, and much more including person centered, holistic care planning.

This course now includes a section about the new laws coming into place in the UK; the General Data protection Regulations are due in force and this is a vital element to bring students up to date of this matter.  This provides an overview and links to associated sites that broaden student awareness.

I have created a manual, journal and other resources are provided to supplement and facilitate your learning experience and outcomes.  I am look forward to meeting you in this course forum and reading your anecodes - always mindful of privacy, confidentiality and data protection... And when you have completed your course I have a special free bonus gift to help you celebrate!

Legislation and Policy
+ What is a care plan
1 lecture 03:45

Here we take a look at what is a care plan; a legal document, that creates an agreement between service provider and user, a detailed needs assessment... The care plan is generated from the collection of data about the person whom we are to support and give care to.  This care plan belongs to the service user and as such requires skillful crafting to ensure the language used is respectful, dignifie, compassionate and kind. 

What is a care plan
+ Different types of care plan
1 lecture 04:47

There are various types of care plans that health professionals use in order to provide the agreed care the service user has identified they need help with.  Here we take a look at some of those plans, in brief.

+ Personalisation of care plans
2 lectures 14:32

Professionals learn how to create care plans, often there is a template design to follow.  However I believe that care plan development is a craft, requiring skill and diplomacy as the people who we write about can access and read their plans; so respect, dignity and compassion, and kindness in the wording is required after all the word, whether written or spoken has a very powerful affect upon our self belief and affects our self-esteem.

Crafting a care plan requires skill; basic skills and additional advanced skills dependent upon the type of care being provided.  Someone recieving nursing care for treatment of cancer, motor neurons disease or schizophrenia will have different care plansto reflect thos specific needs.

To ensure that the care needs of people who recieve assistance, support and help are met timely and promptly it is important to have records created that detail the care required in exact detail.  

This important process must involve the person, wherever possible, to ensure that the care delivered is agreed by them.  There may be other people that are involved with this process such as loved ones, friends and other professionals.  

It is important to review care plans on a regular basis, monthly, tri monthly or sooner if needs change or alter in anyway; this is because the plan is a living document and flexible and adaptable to changing needs.

Your personal approach
Person centred approaches
+ Smarter ways...
2 lectures 27:16

SMARTER... this is an approach that almost every health professional will have heard about... it acts as a prompt to help keep health professionals focused upon the requirements essential for the care plan.

Smarter process... 5 'W's, and 1 'H'

This is a power point presentation where we review the smarter process, includes the nursing process; forgive my husky voice I had a bit of sore throat and sinus problems... so I am now off to give myself some timely, specific care!  

Re-iterating SMARTER
