Award in Inter/Interpersonal Skills for Carers of the Elderly
Course Duration: 15 hours - 3 hours
This award helps our students to develop their intra- and interpersonal skills. These are essential when it comes to communicating with the patients, colleagues and the patient’s family effectively. The carer-to-be is taught to respect the patient's needs by adopting different communication strategies in different situations.
By the end of the module, our students will be able to:
1. Build a professional relationship with the older person, the staff and the patient's family members.
2. Implement their communication and coaching skills with the elderly.
3. Work with other health care professionals to improve the patient's quality of life.
