    Equality, diversity and rights in health and social care

    3 star(s)

    Active support encourages individuals to do as much for themselves as possible, to maintain their independence and physical ability. It encourages people with disabilities to maximise their own potential and independence. In the health and social care environment you should never treat anyone different compared to others. M3 When implementing anti discriminatory practice there are many difficulties that may occur. These can occur between the employers/ carers, service users or the organisation. For example if one person that lives in the care home has an hearing impairment and consequently when listening to music it can be louder than what other service users would like it to be, this could cause arguments.

They finally settled down in Detroit, a place famous for its gangs and crime and a place mainly populated by black people. This again made him the victim of bullying as he was white.

    For male, the variation in life expectancy at birth involving those in the Registrar General's Social class I (profession al) and those in Class V (unskilled manual) was 9.5 years. For female the change 6.4 years. Even though life expectancy at birth was altered over the past 25 years, a differential remains and statistics portray that related patterns are evolving for female as for male, though it is essential to retain that allocating social class to married women is difficult as the current system Is based on the spouses occupation which may be lower than indicated by women's occupation.

    Reflective accounts - I had to consider whether the children would enjoy the activity and gain more knowledge and understanding from the activity about the solar system.

    * The planets each have their own orbit duration, depending on their distance from the Sun, so each planet's "year" differs. * Jupiter is the largest planet in our system. * Pluto has been reclassified as a dwarf planet. * The Earth is the only planet in our system that has water. It covers three-quarters of the Earth's surface. * The planets in the Solar System have a total of 166 moons. Before making the solar system ourselves I thought it would be a good idea for the children to have a look on the computer first of pictures of the solar system so they could have more idea of what it looks like and have a more understanding altogether.

    Factors that can influence effective communication and interpersonal interactions in relation to the health and social care industry.

    3 star(s)

    Disability Some disabilities such as deafness can impact on communication as the individual could not be communicated with using the ability of speech and I may be necessary to require a third party specialist which the individual may not be comfortable with. Content of communication During communication there needs to be a constant assessment of what the user requires to know, how it is being communicated and the language that is being used. For instance if a client needed to be informed that they had cancer it would need to be explained to them in a way that would cause minimum distress but would allow them to fully understand what was being explained.
