...For this piece of coursework I will be describing how anti-discriminatory practice is promoted in health and social care settings. I will also be discussing the difficulties that may arise when implementing anti-discriminatory practice There are many ways in which to promote anti-discriminatory practice that are effective and have minimal chance of failure, the first way is staff training. This can be effective as it gives the workers an insight in how this practice is shown and ways to identify it, it informs them of how to prevent it and stop it from happening again. Training gives them a clear structure to follow to deal with this practice and how to avoid breaking the law. Training also puts the worker in the client’s shoes and shows them the effects of discrimination in hope to deter them from doing it again. Another way health organizations promote anti-discriminatory practice is by making sure they are welcoming for everyone; they do this by commutating to people in their preferred way whether it be Arabic to sign language. If they are unable to provide this service they should find someone who can, i.e. a translator. They should also take in to consideration the different beliefs and values the service users may have, this would be beneficial as it makes the user feel valued and respected, and they are made to feel s if they are at the heart of service. For example a client who is Muslim, letting them practice their religion as it is a religious requirement to......

...P5 - explain health promotion and protection Health Promotion This is the process of allowing people to have more control over their health as this will help improve their health and well-being. It focuses on individual behaviour towards a wide range of social and interventions. Health promotion is how health is shown for example to challenge obesity change 4 life is used so people can have a guidance on how to make their lifestyle healthier. It also shows that health promotion is aimed at individuals whose health is at risk from any diseases from lifestyle factors, which lets individuals take control over their health. By being able to have control over their health it shows individuals what may have happened if nothing was done of it which reduces individuals getting the disease again because they are able to control it. This action of health promotion is encouraging people to take action towards their own health so it is not forcing or done to people it is done by them and with them. It is built on a belief system. There are many approaches to health promotion. Which are; Medical approach, behaviour change approach, educational approach, Empowerment approach and social change.

...A02-B In this section of my coursework I will explain how practitioners apply early years care values using communication skills to show service users value and support. I will use a range of examples to explain each care value in depth. For the each care value I will emphasise on how a nursery manager and nursery use their communication skills to apply the care value, which will cause the children, staff and parents to feel valued and supported. The early years care values I will be focusing on are: • Fostering equality of opportunity • Working in partnership with families • Being a reflective practitioner • Keeping children safe • Working in partnership with other professionals • Encouraging children’s learning development • Maintaining confidentiality • Making welfare of child paramount • Valuing diversity • Ensuring anti-discrimination Care value 1 - Fostering equality of opportunity This suggests that all children should be offered equal access and opportunities to learn and develop, therefore children should be able to make progress with their time in the nursery. Equal opportunity can be achieved, through the fairness of the staff working with the children at the nursery, and also through communication skills which should be consistent so all children have an equal opportunity of advancing within learning. Tone of voice: The nursery nurse should speak at an appropriate pace (i.e. slowly) so the children can understand clearly and respond, talking......

...Unit 2 – Equality, Diversity and Rights within Health and Social Care P4 For this task, I am going to explain how two national initiatives promote anti-discriminatory practice. Sex discrimination act 1975 This act applies for both men and women. It promotes that both men and women should be treated equally. For example, in transport, education, jobs etc. It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by making sure those men and women are treated equally, if this act applies didn’t exist, men and women may be deprived of certain choices. This act includes any discrimination against homosexual marriages or civil partnerships, any discrimination against pregnant women and maternity leave, also about equal pay for both men and women. Disability discrimination act 2005 This act applies to anyone that has some sort of disability. This act is in place to protect disabled people against discrimination both in employment and when using a service or facility. For example, anyone with a disability should have the same opportunities in work or learning places such as school, colleges or universities. In other places such as shops and banks, and to also make sure that they are treated fairly when they go somewhere to eat or drink, such as restaurants or pubs. Public transport services have to make sure trains; buses, etc. are accessible and have the right facilities for anyone with a disability. “The government has implemented the legislation in three phases. Phase 1 in 1996 made it...

...Creating a positive environment In a health and social care setting there are lots of different types of factor, these are Socialisation, Prejudices, norms, values and beliefs. By creating a positive environment this makes the people meets their needs. Two factors that are central to the creation of a positive care environment are the individual practitioners and the organisation. As care practitioners, we have responsibility to challenge behaviour and practices which discriminate against service users, and at the same time promote positive interaction and practice whenever possible. In Jubilee wood primary school there plenty of factors that creates a positive environment. There are different type’s organisational culture such as a power culture and a role culture. A power culture is one based on the dominance of one or a small number of individuals within an organisation. They make the key decisions for the organisation. This sort of power culture may exist in a small business or part of a larger business. (eg. Owner –managed care setting) a role culture exists in large hierarchical organisations in which individuals have clear roles (jobs) to perform which are closely specified. Individuals tend to work closely to their job description, and tend to follow the rules rather than to operate in a creative way. (eg. School) Policies is a type of organisation this is to help to ensure they are operating without breaking the law this is aimed at the care practitioner and the......

...P3 and M1 Describe discriminatory practice in health and social care There are many different bases in which discrimination can occur. It may be hard to believe that anyone working in health and social care would discriminate against another person on any of these grounds. Unfortunately it does happen. A person can be discriminated against because of many different reasons including their culture, age, gender and many others. These factors will be described below. Social class - Our social class is apparent from the place where we live. The higher the class, the better the place is kept and maintained. This inequality has also infiltrated health and social care. It has been said that the poor are more likely to get cancer rather than the rich, their chances of survival are also lower. Gender - A person cannot be discriminated against because of their gender. Under the Gender Equality Duty 2007, all organizations, including health and social care services, cannot discriminate unfairly due to a person’s gender. Equal rights of access, health care and rights must be adhered to. Sexuality - Sexual orientation can refer to a person who is gay or lesbian (attracted to the same sex), heterosexual (the opposite sex), or bisexual (both sexes). Discrimination against someone due to their sexual orientation is against the law, If someone feels they are being discriminated against due to this they are able to seek legal help. Health status - Sometimes difficult decisions have......

...Unit 2: Health and Social Care Values 2A.M1 Discuss the importance of the values that underpin current practice in health and social care, with reference to selected examples¬¬ In this task I am going to discuss the importance of values that reinforce current practice in health and social care with references to selected examples. Care values and the code of practice are designed to try and help service users to feel safer in the environment that they live in and they should also feel valued and respected. Values such as trust and confidence are very important as the service user needs to be able to trust the person that they are communication with/taking help from. If they do not have trust then they will feel depressed and lonely as they cannot talk to anybody for reassurance about things. For instance, an elderly person needs to have trust in its nurse as they are the ones who look after them. This makes a healthy and strong relationship between them. Care workers are also not allowed to abuse, discriminate or neglect or exploit service users or colleagues. By doing this it shows how the service users have respect towards their patient and other colleagues, it also allows privacy which is a basic human right and as the person will not be exposed. This helps the patient to feel more secure and safe due to them knowing no harm will come their way. Care workers have to respect the patient and ensure no harm occurs. By doing this it ensures that the patient is...

Unit 2 P5 Health & Social Care
...Introduction: Anti-discrimination law refers to the law on the right of people to be treated equally. Making sure your clients are treated with the specific care that they need. Clients care should be treated the same as everyone else and no different but some clients may need more care than other clients. For example, their religion, disability, whether they are deaf or blind. The care setting I am going to be focusing on is a care home. In my care home we should promote anti discriminatory practice by having certain principles. These include the following ethical principles; justice, autonomy, beneficence and non-maleficence. Justice means people must be treated fairly no matter what their background is. Autonomy means you must always respect people’s choices. Beneficence refers to the risks and costs involved and ensures that the health carer always acts in the way that benefits the patient. Non-maleficence means that all side effects caused by treatment should never outweigh the benefits of the treatment that has been given to the client. It is vital in health and social care settings that the individual is put at the heart of the service provision. In order to do this our care home will always provide support to our clients in their beliefs, culture and preferences. We will support them in expressing their needs and preferences, empower them and promote their rights and choices. The individual’s well-being is our priority. An example of providing support for an......

...Work Experience M3 Strengths At my work placement my strengths were the ability to use my own initiative and I had a great motivation. On the first day I was introduced to the gym and I was told what kind of activities I would do, it included cleaning, tidying up, litter picking and maintenance around the gym. Each day I turned up I knew what I was doing so every morning I grabbed pair of gloves and bin bag and went outside to do my daily litter pick to make sure that the car park was clean, it was my strength as there was no litter about during my stay there. Cleaning was a big part of my duty as there was a lot of dust on the machines and it was visible so I made sure every 2 days that there was no dust on the machines so they remain clean. I paid attention to every possible detail and used my own initiative during boring moments in the gym so I decided to look for any loose objects hanged on to the wall and screwed the screws in as well as cleaning all the trophies and pictures in the gym. Area for improvement I could have improved on organisation because I used to turn up without a note pad and didn’t note down what I could do through the day. I could have also brought a bigger lunch with me because this job was very demanding and required a lot of physical work especially during tidying up the gym including lifting heavy weights and putting them back on the racks. I feel like I should have brought more water and food with me instead of 3 sandwiches. I could have......

...brought your feelings down to a level of which you just want to give up on life. So you may choose a life of crime or violence, affecting those around you as well as yourself because you are trying to fit in with those around you. Restricted opportunities – All types of discrimination may lead to a person not being able to use health and social provision and this can lead to poor life choices and poor health. The discrimination may be by individuals, health organisations or even the government. Negative behaviour – Negative behaviour, aggression or crime can be partly caused by discrimination. Living in poverty and experiencing discrimination can affect an individual’s behaviour. For example, a carer in a care home shouting at an elderly resident all the time as he is slower than she wants him to be. Loss of rights – All organisations have to comply with the Human Rights Act. However, there are some cases where the act can work in different ways. Cases when a person’s rights have been removed by force or power. Statutory powers are used when a child is taken away from abusive parents. Although the parents’ rights are being affected, the child’s right to health and safety comes first even if the parents object.
