Standard 5: Work in a Person-Centred Way

Standard 5 of the Care Certificate examines person-centred approaches to working practice.

It begins by discussing what person-centred approaches and values are and how to apply them to working practice.

It then looks at identifying and reporting concerns about an individual’s environment or treatment, minimising discomfort and promoting identity and self-esteem.

This unit consists of 7 learning outcomes made up of several assessment criteria.

NOTE: Some of these assessment criteria are very similar to assessment criteria in the Level 2 Diploma in Care Unit on person-centred approaches. Therefore (to avoid duplication) some of these links go to this section.
