) Describe in your own words: a) The biomedical model of health b) The socio-medical model of health The biomedical model of health The biomedical model of health is the predominant model which is used by physicians in diagnosing diseases since the mid-nineteenth century. The biomedical model states the any individual who has no disease, pain or defect is considered as 'healthy'. This approach focuses on the physical processes such as biochemistry, pathology and the physiology of the disease. On the other hand this model is not concerned with the role of social factors or individual subjectivity. The biomedical model ignores that the fact that the diagnosis is the result of negotiation between the patient and the doctor. This model is where one can look at the body systems that might work together in order for the body to function well. The biomedical model looks at the body as a machine and when a part of the body isn't functioning properly it must be fixed in order to continue functioning properly. This model is usually used in the western world. (a-Wikipedia, n/d) The socio-medical model of health The socio-medical model of health looks at how the environment and how the society around us affect the health and well-being of an individual. Factors such as the social class, occupation, education, poor housing, pollution and poor diet affect an individual. For example
Carry Out Some Research To Find Out What The Nutritional Standards Are. Do You Think That Such Standards Will Work? If So, Why? If Not, Why Not?
The School Meals Review Panel Is An Expert Advisory Group On School Meal Standards. It First Met In May 2005. It Was Set Up By The Government In Response To A Campaign By TV Chef Jamie Oliver To Improve The Quality Of School Meals. It Has Announced Detailed Nutritional Standards for School Meals. Carry Out Some Research To Find Out What The Nutritional Standards Are. Do You Think That Such Standards Will Work? If So, Why? If Not, Why Not? (P4) Jamie Oliver has, in recent years become a household name in the kitchen, in 2005 he was part of a television series called "Jamie's School Dinners". The overall purpose of the series was to change the type of being served in school canteens. It has been argued that the nutrition of children whilst at school effects the way in which they learn and concentrate. At the beginning of the series Jamie went to a school that served processed food that was high in sugar, salt and fat. By the end he had convinced most people that the healthier option is the best choice and helped to create a balanced diet for lunch on a budget. It was also made clear that if Oliver made a success of the first school he would have a better chance at coercing members of the government to change the nutritional standards for school meals. "Jamie's School Dinners" was a huge success, and since then many things about the nutritional standards have changed the
Individual health study. To achieve my given task I produced a case study on a woman who is 42 in age and works in a discount store as a cashier. In my coursework I included the negative factors of my case study and the positive factors.
9/12/2007 In my year 10 coursework I was asked to accomplish a piece of coursework. To achieve my given task I produced a case study on a woman who is 42 in age and works in a discount store as a cashier. In my coursework I included the negative factors of my case study and the positive factors. The negative factors of my case study are: * She is in stress * She doesn't get enough sleep * And she doesn't have a balanced diet. The positive factors of my case study are: * She doesn't smoke * Doesn't drink * She has a supportive family As part of my unit 2 coursework in year 11 I am expected to complete another piece of coursework on the same case study making a realistic health plan, including 4 physical measurements and describe it and also describe the clients statistics and say how this is affecting their health and well being. I must also include realistic targets for the client to follow to help them improve their negative factors. Lastly I have to include feedback from the client. One of the 4 physical measures that I will do for my case study is the blood pressure. Blood Pressure is the pressure exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels. Blood pressure depends on the strength of the heart beat, thickness and the volume of the blood, the elasticity of the artery wall and the person's general health. Blood pressure is measured in two

Health and social care Unit 1 part C
Health and social care Unit 1 part C Coursework For my coursework I was asked to produce a report of my investigation into one provider of health, social care or early year's services in my local area. My report must show how well these services meet the different needs of two people who use them. I have chosen to base my report at a primary school where I accomplished my work experience as part of my Unit 1 coursework. When carry out this investigation it will help me realize if the placement/provider meets the needs of the clients who use them. To ensure confidentiality I have changed the names of the two clients that I am going to be examining. The names that I have selected are Lucy and Luke. My first client is a girl called Lucy and Lucy is a six year old who is currently studying at Stanford Primary School and is presently in year one. She is Polish and she has come from Poland a couple of months ago due to family's personal and financial reasons. As she cannot verbalize in English properly, it makes it difficult to communicate with others who don't speak her language and makes it even harder for her follow instructions. She joined Stanford Primary school at the start of year one. She has a Teaching Assistant who assists her with her learning as best as she can. There is an individual who speaks her language but that is it. He helps Lucy by explaining things in
Unit 1 Section B Health and Social Care
Introduction In this section, I am going to be focusing on two main professions; a Nursery Nurse, and the other a doctor. I will be looking at the skills and qualifications needed to fulfil these roles. Then, I will look at the advantages and disadvantages that are involved in these important roles. To get full marks, I will need to include their daily routines, qualities and skills in detail. Doctor's daily routine: General practitioners (GPs) diagnose and treat a wide range of health conditions that can have physical, emotional or social causes. They talk to and examine patients to help to diagnose their condition. They can give patients advice on health issues, prescribe medicine or treatment, perform minor surgery or, where appropriate, refer patients to other healthcare professionals. They also educate patients about healthy lifestyles and have responsibility for preventative programmes, such as health screening and flu vaccinations. For most people, GPs are their first point of contact with the National Health Service (NHS). Most GPs work Monday to Friday, starting at 8am or 8.30am and finishing by 6.30pm. Some run Saturday morning surgeries and provide out-of-hours cover. Part-time work is becoming increasingly common. GPs work indoors in doctors' surgeries, but also travel locally to visit patients at home and to attend meetings. Here is an example I got from the
Developing effective communication in health and social care settings. Examples of one-to-one and group communication.
MAHRIA IQBAL UNIT 1 P5 DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE One-to-one communication- Reading a book with a service user My task was to work with Nicky who was one of the service user's who actually had slight hearing problem. I had to listen to him and work out what level of ability in reading he is at. This task ensured each person communicating has each other's attention in a given moment. I felt that this one-to-one task with Nicky would make him feel special and cared for as it is a mean of saying to him that I am making time for him and he will have my undivided attention. Even though Nicky was a good reader overall as he tried his best at reading with me, but every time he made a mistake or pronounced a word wrong I would say "No Nicky that's wrong" he felt that it was me who was wrong and could not read properly so he just totally ignored that it may have been that he didn't not hear the right answer clearly or just felt embarrassed that he was making mistakes during the task. This task may have been overwhelming for him due to him not having a one to one attention before or he may have felt isolated through a lack of opportunity to communicate with the other care workers. This task had taken place in a room with many other service users who were doing a variety of different activities. I placed my chairs right opposite to him so it would
