Experiences of assessment

Free CourseFree Course Featuring: AudioAudio

This free course, Experiences of assessment, is about assessing need. It is important to understand and hear about people's experiences of being assessed by health or social welfare professionals so that more sensitive responses to those with care and support needs can be developed. We interviewed three people about their experiences of assessment. Having done that, we then asked a social worker and an occupational therapist to listen to the interviews and to comment on them.

By the end of this free course you should be able to:

  • give examples of assessment by health or social care workers.
