The Human Rights Act 1998 Training Course

Health & Social Care Training Courses

In a relaxed and informal atmosphere, group members examine ways in which social care and health services promote the rights and choices of people who use their services against the backdrop of the Human Rights Act 1998.

This will be achieved by:

  • Analysing what are your rights;
  • Exploration of rights of citizenship; employment rights and moral and sexual rights;
  • Consideration of the tensions in promoting choice as individuals examine the tripartite relationship of choice, risk and responsibility;
  • The main articles of the Human Rights Act 1998;
  • The challenges for service providers and some of the amendments to the act in response to this (Safeguarding vulnerable groups, Bournewood etc);
  • Rights and risk assessment;

By the end of the session, participants will have started to understand the implications of the Human Rights Act 1998 on care service delivery.
