Course overview

Everyone needs a little privacy. Protecting what’s unique and personal to you is a basic human right. But, if you end up in a situation where you need to be cared for by another person, this right can be compromised.

In healthcare, protecting the privacy and dignity of people your staff are looking after is vital, because they may not have the capacity to do that for themselves. But what does privacy and dignity mean, and how do you make sure these basic rights are defended? This course will answer that.
