Funded Module: Person-Centredness

Funded Module in Integrated Health and Social Care


The module will allow delegates to explore the issues associated with person-centredness and valuing individuality.  Through the exploration of self-awareness it will allow delegates to analyse the role their own personal values and beliefs, along with their self-esteem and motivation, can play in their ability to provide a person-centred approach to the interactions they have with others.  This may be in a personal or professional situation.  The module will explore what key elements of communication can enhance the delivery of person-centred services and help promote a values-based approach to these. 

The module will also examine the elements of physical, cognitive and social development across the lifespan and how these relate to an individual's engagement with and experience of services.  This aspect is supported by the NHS Education for Scotland Spiritual Care Matters resource. 

The module will also provide delegates with relevant experiential learning.  This will allow them to develop a greater understanding of the challenges that can be faced by people and in particular related to hearing, sight and memory impairment, mobility and manual dexterity difficulties.  This experience will provide delegates with emotional intelligence of the challenges individuals can be faced with which will help in their understanding of the importance of person-centredness. 

This is a Bachelors (SCQF Level 8) module and upon successful completion, delegates will be awarded 20 credits. 

This module comes from our BA (Hons) Integrated Health and Social Care Degree programme.  You can find out more about the full programme here.
