Think Carer - A Call to Action

Event Description This video is for any professionals who are likely to come into contact with family and friends carers as part of their role. The health and social care system relies hugely on family and friends carers and society owes them a great deal. Caring can, however, sometimes come at a cost to the carer; that is why we have a range of information and support services available to enable effective caring and support the carers’ health and wellbeing. Busy carers do not always identify themselves as such and we need the workforce to take on the role of identifying carers, listening to carers and signposting them towards support if required.
Training Objectives The aim of this video is to raise awareness of the role of carers' within society. It seeks to support staff in raising their awareness of colleagues and service users who may be undertaking a caring role. 
Learning Outcomes If you apply what you have learnt in this video you will be able to;

  • Appreciate your role in identifying carers and signposting them for support as necessary.
  • Consider whether your service/team has readily available, and up to date, information for family and friends carers.
  • Identify whether you listen to and include carers appropriately in your practice with clients/customers.
