Abstract

This study used vignettes to examine the understanding and application of the concept of duty of care by health and social care staff working in learning disability services, and the relationship of this to promoting client choice. The study found that health care staff had a significantly broader understanding of the concept of duty of care than social care staff, and were significantly more likely to emphasise client safety. Implications of the findings are discussed.
