Code: PCC/20/1290 Analysis Made Easy

How to record analytically and write cracking assessments!
All too often social care assessments lack structure and are unclear, unfocused and repetitive. This means the message and impact are weakened or lost. When writing assessments and support plans we need to do so in a clear, concise, relevant and meaningful way.

And that means taking the reader (whoever that may be) with us every step of the way. We simply need to convince them that we know what we are talking about and are worth listening to.

All too frequently, writing is mainly narrative and descriptive. There is a lot of information and a lot of facts. But we need to make sense of those facts and that information. What do they tell us? Why do they tell us that? What should we do as a consequence of that? Use the evidence to form your thinking.

This course will help you understand how analytical writing requires you to assess the weight that should be given to information gathered. To do this we will show you how to draw on your knowledge from research, experience and practice.

We will show you how to combine this with an understanding of the service user, carer or child’s needs within their family or the context in which they live.
