Last Friday, to coincide with international human rights day, the Scottish Human Rights Commission launched their online training materials as the latest step in their ‘Care About Rights’ programme. This programme is designed to promote a human rights based approach to delivering care services and to raise awareness about human rights issues that may arise in practice when providing care to the elderly either at their own home or in a care home environment.

The online training takes the user through a variety of different practical scenarios and should be a helpful and (very important in these necessarily frugal times) free way of promoting awareness of these issues amongst both frontline staff and managers.
