Did you know that the Human Rights Act can be used as a practical tool for making decisions about patient care? Are you confident in applying human rights in practice to ensure the delivery of personalised and compassionate end of life care?
Human rights underpin much of the law, policy and practice of end of life care, yet few practitioners really understand how the Human Rights Act impacts and supports their duties and decisions in day-to-day situations.
Sue Ryder has worked with the British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) to produce a practical dip-in guide to help practitioners use human rights as a practical framework for ethical decision-making and for ensuring compassion and dignity in end of life care.
Sue Ryder is also offering interactive training workshops on this topic to build confidence in this approach and train others to teach it in their own place of work.
Training will cover:
- an introduction to the current policy context of end of life care
- an introduction to the Human Rights Act and the key Articles that relate most to end of life care
- how human rights and their application provides a framework to help ethical decision-making
- how to raise human rights issues
