Equality and diversity

This programme delivers an understanding of equality and diversity and helps learners apply that knowledge in the healthcare environment.

A better understanding of the impact of decisions and actions on different people means healthcare staff can respond more effectively, resulting in high quality care for everyone and leading to the more efficient use of resources. The aim is to have a healthcare service that is delivered with dignity and respect by staff who are better informed and have a great awareness of the needs of individuals, in a working environment that meets the needs of our diverse workforce.

Helen Limbert from The NHS Equality and Diversity Council, Department of Health says "This e-learning package is an excellent example of work that will support the NHS in making the Council's vision a reality."

The programme is available to all healthcare staff through the Core Learning Unit and e-Learning for Healthcare platforms. It is also accessible through the National Learning Management System.
