1.1 Describe the duties and responsibilities of own work role

I have a responsibility to ensure that the standards of my work are set to the highest level. This includes maintaining professional competence and being reliable, trustworthy and honest in all aspects of practice. Furthermore, I must always remain committed to promoting respect for individual rights and freedoms whilst providing quality service which is tailored to each person’s needs.

I must also abide by relevant laws when undertaking tasks such as safeguarding individuals from abuse or harm along with any duties related to confidentiality; this involves following standard procedures in accordance with legislation outlined by regulatory bodies like The Care Quality Commission (CQC). Additionally, it is important that communication between clients and staff remains professional at all times, regardless if talking over the phone or face-to-face through formal or informal conversation.

I will be responsible for developing positive relationships both within my own team as well as with other professionals associated with care services ensuring there is no discrimination based on gender/race etc.

I have a duty to maintain records accurately, following rules regarding retention and disposal. I must also protect my own well-being by participating in reflective practice and raising any concerns about care standards with my employer or professional bodies as appropriate.

The code of conduct for healthcare professionals outlines expectations in relation to good behaviour which should always be adhered to, including respecting the diversity of opinions within the workplace, along with maintaining impartiality when providing services; this involves not undertaking actions which could compromise health or safety regulations.

It is essential that I remain accountable at all times, displaying integrity whilst considering relevant ethical principles when carrying out tasks related to health and social care, such as prioritising the individual’s wishes if they are capable of making decisions for themselves on their own behalf; ultimately protecting their right’s autonomy at all times.
