Final online learning module to support a human rights-based approach in health and social care services
This final module looks at the importance of positive risk-taking in a HRBA and how to support people using services to take positive risks.
HIQA recently launched an online learning course to support staff working in health and social care services to apply a human rights-based approach (HRBA) in their work. Promoting a HRBA in health and social care services is a central theme in the national standards developed by HIQA. The course is comprised of four modules, and the fourth and final module was launched this week. This final module looks at the importance of positive risk-taking in a HRBA and how to support people using services to take positive risks.
The online learning course builds upon the Guidance on a Human Rights-based Approach in Health and Social Care Services published in 2019. In addition to promoting and supporting good practice in this area, the course aims to address knowledge and skills gaps identified through extensive stakeholder engagement throughout the guidance development process.
There are now four modules available to help staff apply a HRBA in health and social care:
- Module 1: Introduction to Human Rights in Health and Social Care
- Module 2: Role of Good Communication in Upholding Human Rights
- Module 3: Putting People at the Centre of Decision-making
- Module 4: Positive Risk-taking
The course will give staff an opportunity to reflect and build on their good practice through engaging with practical scenarios describing real-life examples of good and poor practice, self-reflection questions and links to additional resources to extend their learning.
The final online learning module will take approximately 25 minutes to complete and you can find details on the HIQA website here.
