Care Planning DVD

This programme will guide you through the purpose of care planning and its important components, helping you to make your future care plans simple, yet effective.

Many people struggle with care planning; it often becomes a 'form filling' exercise. Our training will help you transform this ‘form filling’ into a useful tool you can use to actively promote the best interests of your clients.

A ‘must have’ for induction, refresher, management and vocational training, for example the Care Certificate.
