The difference technology can make: learning resources for Technology Enabled Care and Support
Care Council for Wales
The emphasis on supporting individuals to maintain their wellbeing and independence is central to the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 (the Act). Preventative approaches, including effective information, advice and assistance, connecting people to their communities, focusing on people’s strengths and capacity to achieve their outcomes are key to supporting wellbeing and maximizing independence. It is acknowledged that utilising telecare/telehealth and assistive technology solutions can support this in a practical way.
As Technology Enabled Care and Support increasingly becomes part of the way individuals are supported, social care workers will need the knowledge, skills and confidence to understand and the contribution it can make and embed it as part of the solution to supporting individual’s choice and independence. This in turn will support workers to be able to offer more creative solutions to achieve individual outcomes, supporting the workforce to respond to and implement the Act.
We require training resources to be developed, utilising the work that we have done to date and incorporating existing film clips, e-learning resources and links to useful resources that are currently available.
– Training resources for two half day sessions, one half day relating to ‘awareness+’ and the other to address assessment and review
– The concept/idea for a four minute film clip to inspire learners, convey the flexibility of technology and demonstrate how it can respond to language needs of the individual.
