Children’s Health Scotland (CHS) has produced a Children and Young People’s (CYP) Healthcare Rights e-learning resource for practitioners in health and social care who work with CYP.
As a rights-based organisation, CHS has used its knowledge and expertise to develop the resource to help practitioners give further effect to UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) articles in their daily practice.
The resource aims to:
- promote greater understanding of the health rights and needs of children and young people (CYP) and families;
- raise practitioners’ awareness of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (the Act) in relation to children and young people’s health and well-being;
- assist practitioners pursue a rights-based approach in line with UNCRC principles.
Anne Wilson, Children’s Health Scotland Development Officer, said:
This is an excellent piece of work which will prove invaluable to practitioners all across health and social care in furthering their responsibilities in pursuing a rights-based approach.
