Course Description:

Completely avoiding complaints is nigh on impossible. Especially in health and social care settings where emotions can be heightened with peopleís loved ones in care settings, often unwell. It is important to understand where complaints come from and often what they really mean. So often, a complaint is simply communication. Handled effectively, dealing with complaints can build rapport with the complainants and engage in topics we may not have been aware of.
