Unit 1 Section C Health and Social Care

Extracts from this document...


Unit 1: Section C Introduction All care work is about improving the client's quality of life by meeting people's intellectual, emotional and social needs, as well as their physical needs. One way of doing this is for care practitioners to empower their clients. Care practitioners empower clients by promoting certain values, which are important to both the care practitioner and the client. These values form the basis for a set of principles that help care workers to gibe the kind of care each individual client requires. The principles are also there as guidelines for the General Practitioner and the Nursery Nurse. Promoting anti-discriminatory practice: * Freedom from discrimination. * The right to be different. * Aware of assumptions made surrounding gender, race, age, sexuality, disability and class. * Understand prejudice, stereotyping and labelling their effects. * Use of language (political correctness). Promoting anti-discriminatory In the world today, all people are different, because of this; people find it easy to think that some people are better than others or that some opinions are right, whilst others are wrong - we must always consider the fact that different people see the world in different ways, and that our way of thinking may sometimes seem unusual to someone else. This difference between people is called diversity and we should value it.

Acknowledging individuals' personal beliefs and identity This gives the children a selection. They have to look for their name in a variety of names, then "adhere it to the registration board".

The GP only gives advice to the clients and performs minor surgery. Promoting Health and well being Miss Amanda Smith has many bad habits which need to be monitored and prevented so that she does not get unwanted illnesses that could slowly kill her. Here as some conclusions: Eating - She doesn't eat a lot of food, and when she does eat, she feels she has to exercise the calories off. This is bad for her health because when the body does not receive enough food, it starts to eat the extra body fat. She is underweight and weak. She is very skinny and her bones and visible. Emotionally it will affect the way she feels about food and her body. Socially it affects the way people see her. Exercise - She over exercises to lose weight, in the questionnaire she states that she exercises three times a week. Over exercising affects her physically, socially and emotionally. She over exercises and doesn't each much, she therefore is malnutritioned. Work - In the questionnaire Amanda said she loves to read Sci-fi and horror books, this is very good for her English skills. Although spending a lot of time reading can make a person very anti- social. This can affect her social - life. Social Life - I realised that this person is single and doesn't have many friends; this problem can affect her socially and emotionally. She has one best friend who supposedly is the only person in the world who understands her. ?? ?? ?? ?? Mike Weston Broadway School Health and Social Care ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

It is difficult to give feedback for this as I am not clear on which unit this work is for. Nevertheless I will give areas where the work could be improved. Some of the examples given for the care values were good, others need more detail. Eg. I was not sure how the example (as annotated), matched with the care value being discussed.
The bullet pointed information needs more detail as it is unclear how it relates to ADP. SO for ?use of language? give an example of how avoiding offensive terms promotes ADP.
Please check for grammatical errors to improve the readability of your work.
