Pathways to Care: Common Induction Standards by Pearl Whitehead
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In care homes for older people, those responsible for workers in an induction period have been tasked to train and assess: new workers who have had no prior training; and workers whose prior training needs to be supplemented with an induction to the specific needs of a new workplace. "Pathways to Care: Common Induction Standards" is a resource to help in this training and assessment. It is designed to be retained by the manager or trainer who can photocopy material from it for use by the workers. Part One contains not just the Standards but also helpful prompts for both trainers and learners and provides much of the knowledge required by new entrants and existing workers to achieve the CIS outcomes. Part Two contains 70 pages of question sheets, which - like the standards and information sheets in Part One - can be photocopied and handed out to workers. They enable inductees' understanding to be checked and can help managers confirm to the Commission for Social Care Inspection that adequate induction training is being given.

Table of Contents

Understand the principles of care.; Understand the organisation and the role of the worker.; Maintain safety at work.; Communicate effectively.; Recognise and respond to abuse and neglect.; Develop as a worker.
