The focus in this chapter has been on you – your need to consolidate and develop your learning if you are to get the full benefit of the time and effort that you have put into studying this guidebook - plus your need to make sure that you do not neglect your own needs. The main learning points for you to hold on to are:
Learning will fade quickly unless you consolidate it – that is, you think about it further and put it into practice.
It is also important to keep building on learning – there is always more we can do to make sure that we are offering the best service possible.
Your own needs are also important. It is essential to get the balance right whereby you are not only caring for others, but also caring for yourself.
