Description

A DVD course, featuring video presentation, on equality, dignity and human rights for all health professionals working within primary care settings. This course is presented by Ann Khambatta, equality and human rights trainer and consultant at Making Waves; a company she established in 2004.

The aim of this course is to increase the awareness and understanding of the way equality, dignity and human rights should combine to meet the needs of those delivering and receiving primary care services. This DVD covers many aspects, starting by examining and explaining the meaning of equality, dignity and human rights in the context of primary care. The Human Rights Act is reviewed with regard to its relevance for primary care and Ann also discusses the Equality Act and identifies the different types of discrimination – direct, indirect, victimisation, and harassment.

This course considers how patients’ dignity may be affected when receiving a primary care service, the implications of the duty to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for patients and staff with disabilities, and the benefits and importance of a timely and comprehensive feedback and complaints system.
