  2. Unit 7 P2 AND M1 explain different sociological approaches to health and ill health and assess the biomedical and socio-medical models of health

    Parsons, explain that illness prevents a person from fulfilling their role within the society, and this is seen as a form of deviance as mentioned at the beginning. An individual who is sick will be regulated by a mechanism of social control, for example a doctor. The doctor is the one who affirms that the individual?s health status has changed from being healthy to sick. By having this sick status, this allows the individual to take time of work, therefore relieving the individual of his/her social role and ascribing him/her a sick role, the individual will maintain the sick role until he/she is well to perform their social role in the society.

  7. Psychological perspectives for Health and Social Care

    He did an experiment of lever pressing behaviour using a famous device called a ?Skinner box?. There are two types of reinforcement: Positive reinforcement and Negative reinforcement. Skinner used both as he used positive reinforcement by giving food to the rat whenever the rat pressed the leaver and he also used negative reinforcement by giving a little electric shock to the rat so it learnt not to press the leaver so often. M1: A weakness of this theory is that it only focuses on objectively noticeable behaviours and doesn?t focus on any independent mental activities. Another weakness is that it only focuses on nurture as how the environment changes behaviour and it doesn?t really focus on nature as how emotions or motivation can affect people?s behaviour.

  9. Communications. I will be examining the different methods we can use to overcome barriers when communicating in health and social care provisions.

    Additionally the specialist may not communicate as well within their role if the person needs to get on with work associating with staff training. Looking at case study one and three I believe staff training was needed there. In both cases the non-verbal communication was not picked up for example, in case study one, questions should have been asked repeatedly throughout the meeting like, do you understand? so then by asking that question the professions would have known that they had understood although, the disadvantages of non- verbal communication is that body language can be taken the wrong way for

    This is because the legislations that have been put in place to control infectious spread a have been analysed and tested to prove they do work in the most effective way. There are many legal legislations and regulations that can help health and social care workers understand what is required of them when the setting is hit by an infectious outbreak.

The first care principle is that the NHS will provide a universal service for all based on clinical need, and not the ability to pay. For John this means that the NHS will ensure that the services he needs will be provided. Another principle is that the NHS will provide a comprehensive range of services.

    The most cost effective way of justifying lung cancer is prevention. In most countries domestic and industrial substances that are known to cause lung cancer have been banned. Although there have been many bans in the UK, tobacco smoke it is still a problem. Tobacco smoke is the main target in preventing lung cancer and smoking campaigns have an important part in the preventing procedure. In the UK we now have policies that prevent people smoking in public places such as workplaces, restaurants and pubs. This helps to prevent passive smoking.

The message is sent; you speak, sign, write or deliver your message in some other way. 4. The message is then received; the other person has to sense your message. 5. The message is then decoded; the other person has to understand your message, however this is not always easy since the other person can/will make assumptions about your words and body language.

    Children?s services are very high on the government?s agenda. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was ratified by the United Kingdom in 1991. This commitment by the UK government to addressing the problems faced by children meant that they needed to be proactive, adopting new policies and procedures to ensure something was done about the way some children were treated. The Children Act 1989 was already in place, it set out in detail what local authorities and the courts should do to protect the welfare of children. After the publication of the Laming Report (2003)

  25. The developing child in an early years setting.

    They usually have quite high self-esteem. Examples of independence that five year olds show can be dressing up. At this age children take great pride in getting themselves dressed. This is because they have the skills and independence to choose their own clothes. At this age children usually have the skills to clean and tidy up effectively. Children at this age are usually asked by practitioners to help them tidy up and are given tasks such as wiping the tables. This can affect their social development because they will feel like grownups and so again their self ? esteem and confidence will go up.
