You explore a broad range of issues within health and social care across a range of different individuals and groups, and around various conditions or issues. There is an emphasis on effective, collaborative work with those who use, design and shape services. Issues within different professional settings are expanded and linked to how practitioners can support people’s needs in their communities. Theory and literature about how people and communities behave and the importance of understanding and reflecting our own response to service users’ needs is also a key focus. There is a core theme of empowering practice and user-led approaches in health and social care practice throughout the programme. The first academic year is foundational and provides an understanding of the contexts for health and social care. You are introduced to theories concerning how people come to be placed and labelled as vulnerable, marginalised or problems in society. There is an exploration of the political and ethical influences on service provision, along with understanding effective skills in working with groups and individuals. During subsequent years, you have the opportunity to study a range of key issues. You develop the knowledge and understanding needed to be an effective worker in interdisciplinary and multi-agency working across a range of communities and care settings.
