Care planning

Care planning


Care planning can often feel like a mechanical exercise or an extra burden on an already busy and full day. However, there’s little that’s more important to working in a person-centred setting than good care planning. In the hands of an enthusiastic and competent care team, good care planning can turn around care and support completely.


This short course will serve as a refresher to an experienced practitioner about the importance of care planning, and as an introduction of the concept to a practitioner who is new to the role. This course may also be of benefit to a manager of a care team with responsibility for care planning.


Learning outcomes


  • You will understand the process of care planning from pre-admission assessment to evaluating the plan and making improvements
  • Good care plans promote choice, independence, and dignity by solving problems like pain and sensory loss. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to create a care plan that achieves this.
  • You will know good practice for setting up a care plan folder


Advantages of this course
