Module overview Health and social care practitioners are regulated by, and must adhere to, a range of laws and policy when working within the most common settings of health trusts, primary care and other public authority settings. Even those working in voluntary, non-profit and private organisations will require a sound understanding of law and policy in order to practice proficiently, safely, ethically and legally.

This unit develops students’ knowledge and appreciation of the need for them to be thoroughly informed about, and compliant with, relevant law and policy. Furthermore, the unit presents opportunities for students to apply relevant, law and policy in practice settings, both actual and realistic, and to consider the place of codes of practice and ethics in their day-to-day work
