Test Stage Begins!
Privacy and dignity should form a core part of the care of the individual throughout their pathway of care. “Dignity is concerned with how people feel, think and behave in relation to the worth or value of themselves and others…when dignity is present people feel in control, valued, confident, comfortable and able to make decisions for themselves” (Reference: RCN 2008).
By asking the workforce to audit services, not only will this promote the Dignity Challenge and what it wants to achieve, but will also provide organisations with a different point of view on what they are doing well and not so well.
We are excited to announce that we are looking for organisations to help us test the Dignity Toolkit that has been developed over the last year, by joining a Dignity Toolkit Task & Finish Group.
We are proud of our Dignity Toolkit which has been a joint initiative between Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Primary Care Trust, Liverpool Social Care Partnership, Liverpool Health & Social Care Champions and representatives of the City’s service users and carers and hope it will become a valuable tool to ensure dignity is maintained throughout our sector. We hope our toolkit will also benefit your organisation by enabling you to recognise the areas in which you excel in dignity and equally to identify those areas where more work needs to be implemented.
This is alpha test stage of the toolkit, which means your organisation could be one of the first to use the Liverpool Dignity Toolkit. Additionally, the tool is a way of benchmarking performance against CQC Inspection outcomes (Care Quality Commission) and Local Authority compliance.
