This article focuses on delegation and what this means for the support worker in their everyday practice. Support workers are now performing roles and tasks which even just a few years ago would have been unheard of. They are working in a wide range of clinical environments and liaising and working alongside professionals from different fields of expertise. Having work and tasks delegated to you, as well as delegating to others, is a major part of the support worker’s role; understanding how and when this should be done is key to successful delivery of quality care.
