So, as well as carrying out the technical parts of your job, you need to be able to make decisions quickly and problem-solve. For example, imagine you have a patient who won’t take their medication. What do you do?

The decision you make in this situation is part of your duty of care to that person. Duty of care is one of your legal and professional responsibilities when you work in a healthcare setting. That’s why it’s important to understand what’s required on a day-to-day basis. And this course will help.
