Professional Practice (Vulnerable Person)
Recent years have seen an increased awareness of how some children and adults can be vulnerable to abuse. As a consequence policies and legislation have been developed to try and safeguard such individuals. However, it is still common for practitioners in health and social care to find themselves in situations where they are supporting vulnerable people. There are many ways that people can become vulnerable to harm. This raises the questions, �What is vulnerability?�, �Is it inevitable?� and �What are the best strategies for seeking to reduce/eliminate vulnerability?� The course is designed to assist you in critically examining such questions in the context of professional practice.
Applicants must have an Honours degree and be a professionally qualified health or social care professional; for international students, IELTs 7.0 or equivalent.
Modules include: Vulnerable person; legal and ethical issues relating to the vulnerable person
Assessment such as essays but also utilise approaches such as presentations and role play to assess the links between theory and practice.
