The 6 Cs and Person-Centred Values in Health and Social Care

In health and social care, specific values guide the way care is delivered. These values, shaped by personal beliefs and cultural influences, are essential for providing high-quality care.

Understanding Personal Values

Our values, influenced by our childhood, family, culture, and experiences, play a significant role in shaping our actions and reactions in various situations.

The 6 Cs in Health and Social Care

The 6 Cs are a set of recognised values vital for health and social care workers. These are Care, Compassion, Competence, Communication, Courage, and Commitment.

Exploring the 6 Cs

  • Care: Acting in the best interest of others.
  • Compassion: Empathy and understanding towards others.
  • Competence: Having the necessary skills and knowledge.
  • Communication: Effective listening and clear expression.
  • Courage: Trying new things and voicing concerns.
  • Commitment: Dedication to providing quality care and support.

Person-Centred Working

Person-centred values revolve around placing the individual at the core of their care and support, tailoring services to fit their unique needs and preferences.

Promoting Dignity in Care

Upholding dignity is a crucial part of person-centred care, ensuring that every action and word reflects the best interests and respects the individuality of the person in care.

Embracing the 6 Cs and person-centred values in health and social care ensures that care providers offer respectful, empathetic, and effective support to those they serve.
