    • Introduction to equality, diversity and rights

      This unit introduces you to equality, diversity and rights in the health and social care sector. You need to be aware of these issues because you will be faced with them on a daily basis. This is one of the most important units on the course and it is essential that you understand the regulations regarding equality, diversity and rights.

      You need to know how to help a person who is being victimised and how to help the person inflicting such discrimination so they do not do it again. By doing this, you will ensure that you and others deliver a respectful and dignified service to everybody using and working in health and social care.

      You have a huge responsibility to yourself and others to ensure that this happens. It is also very important to be aware of your own thoughts and prejudices. (Yes, everybody has them!) This will enable you to understand your own thought processes in a mature way, and not let them get in the way of your day-to-day tasks. It will also make you aware of your own rights and help to ensure that no one discriminates against you, which is also extremely important.
