Training based on the German Charter of rights of people in need of care and assistance now available!

German Charter based modular compendium for value-oriented care, quality and human resources development and vocational training now online and for free by order on CD ROM

Value-oriented care, quality and human resources development processes and vocational training in the long-term care sector are centered on rights and needs of older people in need of care and assistance. But how is that realised in practice?

This comprehensive, flexible-to-use compendium consists of five modules, providing manifold materials such as power point presentations, work sheets, pictures and a selection of good practices for the implementation of the Charter in organizations and literature. The overall objective is to challenge communication, interactions and circumstances of professional care from the value-oriented perspective of dignity in care. It was developed by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) and the Information Centre on Long-term Care Charter in cooperation with committed practitioners in the long-term care sector.

This compendium is designed for flexible use by various stakeholders in long-term care such as vocational schools for care or care organisations. Thus, many groups within professional care can profit from this tool, ranging from nursing trainees to heads of care organisations, designated quality managers, teachers in vocational training, advisory boards of care homes and senior citizens’ special interest groups.
