“Gain an understanding of the impact of the clinician’s values and thoughts when supporting families”
When caring for families, the clinician must be aware of their own thoughts, beliefs and values which may impact upon their ability to provide impartial care. Although it is a necessary skill, it takes great expertise to be able to step back and discern how your own biases are affecting your judgement.
In this session, you will explore the impact of your values, thoughts and beliefs when supporting families and children in their health so that you can take a broader view and work towards the provision of care that meets the family where they are at.
In this session you will:
- Gain an understanding of the impact of the clinician’s values and thoughts when supporting families
- Acquire knowledge about the importance of listening to the voices of the child and their parents/caregivers
- Gain an awareness of the need for reflection, clinical reasoning and judgement when supporting families
- Develop the ability to provide supportive non-judgemental guidance
