As someone working in the healthcare industry, understanding your responsibilities for promoting equality and diversity in the workplace is important; it will enable you to effectively fulfil your role. It is your duty to ensure that every patient, service user, and carer has equal opportunity and are treated respectfully and fairly.
This course will provide you with a strong awareness of these responsibilities, and will introduce you to how equality and diversity applies to healthcare specifically.
The Equality Act 2010 and the nine characteristics protected under this law will be covered in detail, which will help you understand how to successfully avoid discrimination in your health or social care organisation. Likewise, having an understanding of prohibited behaviour will help you promote a fairer, more tolerant, and more diverse working environment in which all patients and service users receives person-centred care and in which staff can operate to their optimum performance.
