The plan is to complete unit 503 using the Learner Statement template. The purpose of this unit is for learners to develop their skills and knowledge in effectively managing communication and information systems within an adult care setting. Effective communication plays a key role in all aspects of leadership and management and in life in general. As leaders and managers having good communication skills is key to developing positive relationships with those in receipt of care and support, individuals and staff teams and in any partnership working which forms part of a managers role.   Learners will reflect on and evaluate models of communication, the communication methods they use with others and make recommendations for any changes required to support positive outcomes for all. The unit also enables learners to review their existing communication systems and related practises to enable others to fully understand current policies and procedures that apply to care and support practice, both internally and externally.   Learners should consider the following questions as a starting point to this unit:  What different models of communication are there and how might they apply to management practice?  What systems do you have in place to ensure all staff fully understand the policies and procedures that apply to their practise and how is this monitored?  What are the barriers to effective communication within service delivery teams?  Why it is important to lead others in maintaining accuracy in record keeping?   Learning outcomes In this unit, learners will be able to: 1. Understand models of communication 2. Develop communication systems and practises which support positive outcomes 3. Implement systems for effective information management 4. Support others with effective communication strategies   Please ensure you read the guidance beneath each Learning Outcome in the Learner Statement to ensure you answer each point fully.     All learning outcomes will be covered on observations which will be organised at a later date.   If you are researching information please do not forget to reference where you have completed this, tell me the website or author and title of the book used.  Remember you cannot directly copy information it must be in your own words.  This qualification is about your job role and what you do.   Before submitting your learner statement please proofread your work and check your spellings and grammar.  Please do not use any abbreviations, the full name must be written.   If you require any support or guidance please do not hesitate to contact me and I will give you further guidance.
