The information and resources provided within the CareSearch training site has been designed and developed to health and social care professionals in their practice. It is not intended to provide specific answers to a particular clinical or care circumstance. They are intended to prompt practitioners to further explore ideas and concepts and to examine their existing practice.
It is each individual’s professional responsibility to judge any information and its applicability in the clinical context. Nothing can take the place of a comprehensive assessment of patient and carer needs, and of the usual processes that follow these assessments in providing individualised care.
Information may change from time to time. This may be because further research is developed and becomes available. It may also change, as practice often does, according to what is available locally (eg, particular medications) and the experience and expertise of local health professionals.
