Confidentiality is something that doctors and carer have to do because it is against the law to give out there personal information. It protects the services users' personal information from being seen or used by other people also the doctors or carer's can't talk about their personal information without the service users consent. It is not only doctors and cares it is also social workers has well but if someone broke the confidentially law then that can have a affect on the service user by them losing self esteem or they might trust the doctors, carers, social worker again as well as damaging their life an individual. In my placement they keep all of the service user's personal data and records lock away only for the service user and staff to look at and to make changes to it also whenever someone has looked at it they have to sign it notifying that they have look at also all personal letter are looked away until the service user asks for them personally. A policy is a set of principles that inform how they should act and behave in certain situations and the person following the policies will have to meet requirement for example confidentiality or safety. Procedures is when someone does a sequence of things that must be done in a certain way for example a doctor has to do his medical check up in a certain way to get the proper results. ...read more.


The valuing people plan looks at all different parts of life that supports the person with their disability and their families also. Like with helping them to get try and find the right kind of treatment needed by giving them referrals to different health specialist. The valuing people strategy will also help by trying to help people with learning disabilities to live the most independently have they possibly can so for example if they are capable of living by themselves then they will try and find home for them. Person centred planning is about supporting and giving the service user privacy and dignity and that will be done by the carers building their care plan around the service users like and dislikes. Another thing that person centred planning does it try to promote the services users independence. The main part of the person centred planning is about giving the service user has much choices as possible so for example like choosing the kind of diet that they have and also what kind of lifestyle that they lead but the carers or social workers will try and help encourage them to live a healthy lifestyle. The information inside the support plan would be looked at a couple times a year to see whether or not the service users needs have changed at all also the service user's care plan is a confidential documents that can only be viewed by members of staff. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

Star rating 3
This essay covers 6 legislations that are used to prevent discrimination. Most are described and explained. Another two legislations / regulations could also be included to ensure that 50% of the list from the specification has been covered, for example, the Care Standards Act 2000 and the Equality Act 2010 could also be included. The section on codes of practice is unclear but codes of conduct have been covered well. Charters have not been covered, such as Better Care Higher Standards. Organisational policies and procedures have been defined and confidentiality covered well, as well as staff training being considered. However, 3 other aspects of policies and procedures could also be included, for example, the positive promotion of individual rights, as well as the use of advocacy and complaints procedures. The effects of discriminatory practice have been covered mostly well. How anti-discriminatory practice is promoted in health and social care settings has been started, for example, through person centred planning, but is unfinished, for example, ethical principles, balancing individual rights with the rights of others, dealing with conflicts and identifying and challenging discrimination have not been considered. Personal beliefs and value systems have also not yet been covered. Proofreading of the content is required to improve the use of English.
