Dignity in health care - learning with the RCN

Explore this online learning area to strengthen your understanding and practice in promoting dignity for your patients or clients and your colleagues, wherever you work, and whatever your role is within the nursing family.

You can work through this at your own pace either all at once, or by returning to complete 'bite sized' pieces of learning whenever it is convenient for you. As a guide, this area will take between two and four hours to complete, and can easily be done in several 15 minute slots. View the Dignity in health care learning opportunity.

First steps for health care assistants
This resource has been developed as a self-directed learning programme. It aims to help health care assistants (HCAs) individually or as part of a workplace induction programme learn, at their own pace, the most important factors in getting started in their career as an HCA. First steps has been developed around the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework and codes and standards for each of the UK countries. It also links to a range of National Occupational Standards that can be printed off in the form of an assessment checklist that could form the basis of a portfolio of learning. We suggest that you consider recording your reflections when you reach the end of each topic. First steps includes sections on person-centred care, preserving people's dignity and communication.
