Introduction

AO2: TASK 3 I am now going to analyse the services I have looked at and how services themselves are analysed to see if they are providing adequate care. Within this I shall discuss care plans and the approaches used to meet service users PIES. Multi-disciplinary teams are teams of workers from different specialist profession who provide care for patients. In all multi-disciplinary teams, assessment forms part of the care-management cycle. This cycle is shown below in the diagram. Health and social care service providers have to organise services to meet each individual's unique needs. This involves 3 important aspects: * The initial assessment of needs * The care plan * Assessment of service provision - monitoring and reviewing of care plans Care planning is an essential part of healthcare. A care plan ensures that no issues are neglected and it provides a map to guide the health and social care worker into providing adequate care for the service user. ...read more.

Sure Start SureStart is the government programme to deliver the best start in life for every child. They bring together early education, childcare, health and family support. It helps to develop services in disadvantaged areas alongside financial help for parents to afford childcare. In SureStart there is a central office where all the team work together to support children and families in the area. Some of the members include: * Employability worker for parents returning to work * Activities co-coordinator * Child psychologists * Nursery nurse * Health visitor * Play worker * Speech and language therapist * Child care trainer * Sure start midwife and maternity assistant * Visiting community pediatrician * Family support workers (social services) By working together they provide a more efficient and professional service. Each different member has a different job and focuses on different PIES of the service user. The midwife provides advice, care and support for women, their partners and families during the pre-conceptual, antenatal, intranatal and postnatal periods. ...read more.

Conclusion

Sure Start Plus programmes also conducted their own local level evaluations in order to evaluate their services on a local basis as each community has a different set of needs. Within this evaluation, strengths and weaknesses were acknowledged. They identified that the key success of the programme was the role of the Personal Adviser who provides a holistic package of support to young parents. Personal Advisers worked within multi-disciplinary teams, referring on to specialist workers where appropriate. The programme has been particularly successful at providing emotional 'crisis support' for pregnant teenagers and young mothers, helping mediate family relationships, addressing domestic violence, and giving advice on housing, benefits, and healthcare, often acting as advocate for the young woman. I personally think the SureStart is a very well-organised organisation. They obviously take great take in their care plans and acknowledge the overall needs of the service user. SureStart use a holistic approach to care. This means they consider the overall physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs of the service user and try to integrate different services into one, whole service that benefits the individual as a whole. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This is a good attempt but it lacks depth. It is really a descriptive essay of care plans and sure start.

It could be expanded by further research and trying to explain in greater depth various aspects as highlighted in the work.
