New Level 4 Lead Practitioner in Adult Care end-point assessment now available
This new assessment further expands BIIAB’s end-point assessment services for the health and social care sector. Read on to find out more about the new end-point assessment.
What is a Lead Practitioner in Adult Care?
Lead Practitioners in Adult Care play an important role in the health and social care sector. Individuals working in this job role guide and inspire team members to make positive differences to someone’s life when they are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional, psychological or intellectual challenges.
They will have specialist skills and knowledge in their area of responsibilities which will allow them to lead in areas such as care needs assessment, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and enablement, telecare and assistive technology. They will be a coach and mentor to others and will have a role in assessing performance and quality of care delivery.
Lead Practitioners in Adult Care may work in residential or nursing homes, domiciliary care, day centres, a person’s own home or some clinical healthcare settings.
As well as covering Lead Practitioners in Adult Care this standard also covers Lead Personal Assistants who can work at this senior level but they may only work directly for one individual who needs support and/or care services, usually within their own home.
