Principles underpinning health and social care

All health and social care professionals have professional codes of conduct. The aim of this module is to develop understanding of the values, theories and policies underpinning health and social care practice and the mechanisms that exist to promote good practice within the sector.

The management of quality in health and social care

Quality is an essential component of health and social care services and a concept with many different interpretations and perspectives. The aim of this module is for learners to develop an understanding of different perspectives on health and social care service quality and how it is evaluated in order to empower and involve users of services.

Research project

This module aims to develop the learner’s skills of independent enquiry and critical analysis by undertaking a small pilot investigation of direct relevance to their higher education programme or professional development.

Partnership working in health and social care

The aim of this module is to enable learners to develop an understanding of the importance of working positively in partnership with others in health and social care. Learners will explore the nature of partnership on three levels. First, they will examine partnerships with users of services that empower individuals to make informed decisions and encourage independence. Second, they will consider partnerships between different professionals within health and social care and explore inter-agency working. Finally, learners will investigate organisational partnerships and examine different ways of joint working.

Working with service users with complex needs

The aim of this unit is to help learners to understand issues of health, disability and illness and how health care professionals can empower those with complex physical and mental health needs to determine their own care.

Successful completion of the full Level 4/5 Health and Social Care course and final year of an accredited Undergraduate Degree programme will act as a springboard to a professional career in health and social care services. The course pulls together theory and practice for those who wish to work with people in a caring environment. It is suitable as a base for those who wish to move onto one of the many health or social professions or those who want to keep their options open.
