The boundaries of care

Free Course Free Course Featuring: Audio Audio

In this free course, The boundaries of care, we will look at a number of situations which put a strain on the idea that caring is just 'being ordinary', including times when people are giving intimate care. In these special circumstances, since the normal rules do not apply, we have to develop a set of special rules to guide practice.

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of the difficult decisions that need to be taken to improve the quality of interpersonal relationships in health and social care contexts
  • appreciate key moral dilemmas in the provision, delivery and management of health and social care services
  • identify ways in which boundaries can be respected in situations where intimate care is being given.
