Extracts from this document...


´╗┐For my p1 I will be including a cast study about an individual who is suffering from a number of disorders. Case study John Smith is 33 year old and he suffers from a lot of disorders. He has epilepsy (seizures), cerebral palsy (paralysis), blood circulation problems, osteoporosis (weak bones), scoliosis, chest infection and nasal polyps (build-up of mucus). John and his family has provided a care plan that is essential in order to properly look after John, he cannot communicate verbally but he does it by blinking his eyes. The purpose of this report is to explain how the application of values and principles enable professionals to provide a holistic care. 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. To be effecting and comprehensive, the care planning process must involve all disciplines that are involved in the care of the patient. The ultimate purpose of the care plan is to guide all who are involved in the care of this person to provide the appropriate treatment for the patient or client and it needs accordingly to include physical, intellectual, social and emotional requirements. A care worker unfamiliar with the patient/resident should be able to find all the information needed to care for this person in the care plan. ...read more.


This means that John can trust the NHS with his information, and since John cannot talk, he can receive information in a different form. This also means that John is being treated fairly. Individual attitudes are inextricably linked to values. Our personal attitudes affect the way in which we relate to others and our general behaviour towards them. Our attitudes are part of our individual identity but it is very important that it does not stop us accepting and valuing others. These values are normally learnt from individuals parents or carers, and don't usually change throughout their life. One of his most important values is his medication, because it helps him keep alive. It is not taken then he could be in serious danger, which can lead to death. John frequently mentions and goes in detail about his medication in his care plan showing how important they are to him. Empowerment means giving individuals enough information to enable them to make informed decisions and make choices about their life. It lies at the heart of the care value base, devised by the Care Sector Consortium in 1992 in order to provide a common set of ethical principles and values for health and social care worker. You can empower John by asking him question or giving him a choice to choose something he likes, and he will respond to you by blinking. ...read more.


The NHS also benefits them because it doesn?t cost them anything, and that the staff will get their jobs done in the best way possible with no stress, this is because the NHS makes their job easier. Everyone will be treated equally and if the NHS works together with other professionals then there would be fewer things for John?s parent to be worried about. There are a lot of assessment tools that can be used when planning a support care for John. Professionals, carers and his family can keep a log book for John, a checklist of things that must or needs to be done for example his medication and any write down any problems that might occur when caring for John. To let other staff know what has been happening there could a daily log book where everything is written down for that particular day. Sometimes problems can occur when writing and implementing a support care plan; this can be caused by support carer who hasn?t read his book properly or just not treating John with respect that he deserves. To make sure that John is receiving quality of care at all times, professionals should record everything for the next carer in line of duty. John?s care plan include a lot of professionals and sometimes communicating between each other can be really hard, so they should make sure that everything is done properly and to the book because if anything is missed and not done properly this can lead to serious consequence to John?s health. ...read more.
