Aims and Objectives

How can assessments be carried out in a way that promotes carers' well-being and enabling them to support those they care for?

This training explores assessing the needs of carers. By the end of the training you will:

  • Understand the context for carers and the implications for carer support
  • Explore the barriers to identifying carers
  • Be clear about carers' rights to assessment
  • Reflect on the importance of using collaborative communication when working with carers
  • Be aware of what needs to be recorded
  • Understand outcomes and how to review progress

Assessments are a real and powerful lever for not only improving carers and families lives but can also influence wider change.
