The Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre (SISCC) is delivering a free online course for health and social care practitioners, carers, students and people who use services exploring the impact and delivery of compassionate care.
The three-week course, Compassionate Care: Getting it Right, will give you practical tools and insights you can use to enhance compassionate health and social care.
All participants will have the opportunity to be part of a research study, if you are interested in finding out more, please email Jason Tang at email@example.com
Our new compassionate care resource coming soon
We are working with the Care Inspectorate on a new resource to promote, maintain and develop compassionate care across the social care sector.
Compassion is one of the underpinning principles of the Health and Social Care Standards. The Standards focus on the quality of caring relationships and articulate what compassion and kindness look and feel like for people experiencing care.
Our new resource is both practical and inspiring and looks at what compassionate care looks like coming from those experiencing care and support as well as those delivering it at all different levels
Look out for our new resource in the autumn.
