In your second year, you will explore what it is like to work in the health and social care sector, including the roles and responsibilities of workers and organisations, such as following policies and procedures and understanding the roles of doctors, nurses, midwives and occupational therapists, as well as looking at how psychological perspectives have informed our understanding and treatment of service users.
