Describe how duty of care influences health and social care

·       Duty of care helps to maintain standard of care, in line with principles and codes of practice. And who do not follow the standard may be subject to complaints that could be investigated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

·       It helps us to deliver care according to the person’s best interests.

·       It prevents us from delivering care practice that has negative impact on individual’s safety, health and well-being.

·       By knowing our duty of care, we are obliged to observe, and update or report any changes in order to improve individual’s quality of life.

·       Duty of care restricts to perform any tasks we are not competent to undertake safely.

·       It also helps to keep up to date our knowledge and skills.
·       Duty of care helps to safeguard individual and us (the carer) by recording and reporting.
