“We need to emphasise the humanity and human rights of the people accessing and providing support and services, to create relationships that enable people to flourish.”

This interactive event hosted by the Health and Social Care Academy aims to explore what emphasising humanity looks like in practice, not just for those receiving care but for the care workers too. What could emphasising humanity look like if we focussed on the human rights of everyone within the system?

In the seminar you will hear from:

  • Belinda Dewar,Professor of Practice Improvement at the University of the West of Scotland who will talk about her improvement role including My Home Life and the academic background to this agenda.
  • Helen Sandersonwho leads an international team working for social change, dedicated to transforming organisations, communities and individuals’ lives through person-centred practices.  Helen will explore what emphasising humanity looks in practice.
  • Enable Scotland Care Worker, Frontline experiences of providing care
  • Carlyn Millar, Scottish Government (on secondment from Scottish Care), Human rights of people delivering care
  • William Griffiths, Dementia Carer Voices

The session will then look at identifying areas of where emphasising humanity already exists in Scotland and how we can share learning of different approaches and embed in practice.
