Workers are in a powerful position to define the reality of the caring situation in their terms, to describe it from their perspective and to believe that their professional expertise ensures objectivity. Service users, by virtue of their very disadvantage in requiring help and support may find it difficult to put forward any alternative. This training pack provides material that should stimulate awareness of the importance of recording in the delivery of quality social care and help people learn the principles of effective recording. It shows how to make records that: are objective and reliable; include the service users perspective; and identify the worker's judgements.
