Unit 502- Promote professional development 1.1 Explain the importance of continually improving knowledge and practice It is very important to continually maintain and more importantly improve their knowledge and the practice of the staff team and ourselves. This is so that staff work consistently with each other and are working in a way that meets legislation, policy and the service user needs. If staff do not improve or refresh their knowledge then their work practice could be out of date and no longer meet legal requirements as well as the requirements of the service users. By developing staff knowledge this could ensure that their work morale is kept positive and that they are motivated to complete their job correctly as this could empower them in their job role. Most importantly improving knowledge and practice ensures that the service users are getting the care they need in a correct manner.
It is vital for management to be aware and up to date with relevant legislation and information, as it is a part of their role to guide, support and influence other staff to do well in their own roles. As a member of management your own professional development not only impacts on yourself but also other staff, the Agency and the people who use the service. Staff must also ensure continuous professional development through reading policies and procedures to ensure they are working within the Agency’s set guidelines, attending and participating in team meetings in order for them to have input in to possible changes and discuss with colleagues good and bad working practices to ensure continuity in care. Staff must also be provided with training opportunities to update knowledge and ensure understanding as well as reading materials for informational purposes. In regards to the care industry, improving knowledge and practice ensures a happier, productive and more effective workforce and provides a sense of happiness, comfort, safety and well-being for service users therefore personal development is extremely important.

Continuing training and coaching as collaborations work can provide encouragement during the process.

Also the use of a diary, reflective journal, learning log or critical incident journal is very helpful.
