Duty of Care

For community care and allied health workers in a disability and aged care setting

Duration: 8 mins 20 secs

Duty of Care is part of our lives. Everyday when we work or play we practise duty of care. Using workplace examples from a community care setting, this video clearly explains the complex concept of duty of care.

This video explores typical dilemmas, such as challenging behaviour, medication and privacy, which workers might face with their clients and offers a simple and effective process to attempt to solve those dilemmas without impinging on the rights of individual clients.

Project developed by Fran Haarsma Productions and funded under the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) Program by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
