Kirsty Hall Unit 1 Developing Effective Communication in Health and social Care Communication is a way of creating an understanding with an individual or within a group, it is important that you have good communication skills when working with others in order to follow and obey instructions clearly and correctly without any misunderstanding. Communication in health and social care settings is used daily, for example teachers communicate with pupils, parents and work collies, In this health and social care environment it is important that commination is clear from both the teacher and parent in order to hold a fluent conversation that maintains eye contact, teachers will need to communicate with parents to discuss their child/children’s school work or issues that may need to be addressed in more detail. For example family problems that may affect the quality of a child’s school work, if communication is not effective it may cause confusion and problems could accrue if the message is not summarised. There are two different ways of communicating which are verbal and non-verbal; Verbal communication involves talking to present ideas, thoughts and feelings, good verbal communication is the ability to both explain and present your ideas clearly through the spoken word. The tone and paste of voice is also very important when talking as it can often show what mood an
The nature/nurture debate in childhood development The nature/nurture debate is the controversy surrounding the relative influence of environment and heredity on children's behaviour. Particularly, does nature and nurture interact? Questions include; is language acquired because the environment demands it or because it is genetically determined? Are boys more aggressive than girls because of the culture we live in or because it is in their genes? How is emotional development influenced? The debate revolves around nature verses nurture, nature with nurture, nature alone or nurture alone. In 350BC Plato believed that most ideas were innate, a view still held in 1600's by Descartes. Wiggam (1923) stated "Heredity, not environment is chief maker of man... the differences among men are due to differences in germ cells with which they were born." Alternatively, empirical philosopher like John Locke (1632-1704) insisted that the mind is blank, a "tabula rasa". Locke argued that all ideas came from experience. Early studies have focused mainly upon the environmental influence, e.g. in the home. More recently there have been moves towards researching biological effects on the roots of behaviour and development. One reason is new technology allows psychologists and physiologists to study the brain in greater detail. There are many approaches to the nature/nurture debate. The

P5 Physical and Psychological changes due to ageing process Physical changes Cardiovascular System Atherosclerosis occurs when fats lays down in the wall of blood vessels and develop a narrowing of the arteries in older people. It can affect older people with high blood pressure, giving them stroke and heart attack. When the fats lays in the blood vessels, it increases the size and cause a blockage in the artery which can make a person get low breathing and chest pain. Respiratory System Bronchitis may develop and involves in inflammation of the airways that connect the wind pipe to the lungs because once people get older their strength of their chest muscle reduced. Emphysema Smoking in an example that can cause shortness of breath and result in respiratory or heart failure by causes the lungs to produce chemical that damage the walls of the alveoli. This disease is call Emphysema. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Is when a person does not get enough oxygen to breath and has to increase their rate of breathing in order to cope and it makes the person look bloated or appear bullish. Nervous System Nerve cells communicate with muscle to function properly. In older age neurotransmitters which are released by the nerve cell get weaker to communicate with muscle and functions less effectively. Loss of vision Cataracts and glaucoma can affect eyesight in

Eleanor Lees Unit 5 : Anatomy and Physiology Task 1 - P2 Body Tissues In the human body we have four main tissues, these being Epithelial, Muscle, Connective and Nervous. Tissues are groups of similar cells carrying out specific functions. Firstly, Epthelial tissues are the internal linings ad external surfaces and body cavaties, including tubes or channels (ducts) that carry secretions from glands. There are two types of epithelial tissue, simple and compound. Simple including, * Cubical/cuboidal - these are cube shaped with a spherical nuclei, they are often found in the kidney tubes, sweat ducts and glands like the thyroid gland and breast tissue. Columnar - these cells are much taller with a slighlty oval nuclei, often associated with microscopic filaments called cilia which is often found in the throat. Squamous - the word squamous means scaly to signify the 'flatness'.These cells are extremely flat with an oval nucleus forming alump in the centre. Theyre also positioned close together in random patterns, simple squamous epithelium is found on the walls of the lung aveoli and the blood capileries. Compound being, * To protect deeper structures, this can be found in the vagina, mouth, tongue and the oesophagus this is lined by stratified epithelia (simple) which then consist of layers being squamous, cuboidal or columnar cells which eventually become flattened
Introduction. This coursework will be based on unit 2, which is promoting health and well-being. I will look at understanding health and well being by including positive, negative and holistic definitions of health. Further, I will consider different aspects and cultures, which affect health. I am going to observe a client and analyse the PIES while taking health measures for him. In the end of my assessment, I would set targets for my client to improve his health and also provide leaflets and brochures and include information from experts to motivate him to stick to the plan. I will make him aware about the effects a bad lifestyle may have on him. This coursework is laid in sections as section A, B, C and D. Section A will contain definitions of health, how cultures look at health and the history of the health care sector; how it changed over time. In section B, I will look at factors affecting health and will also introduce my client while looking at the factors affecting his PIES. In section C, I will collect life style records of Mr. Jayaweera, who is my client to look at his PIES in detail and prepare health plans. Section D will look at how my plans are SMART. This will give a description about how the plans will benefit my client. Note: The bracketed information at the end of some sentences refers to the bibliography. E.g.: (Bib.1) refers to the first source in the
Describe the social and political factors that make people different from each other In the following document I am going to look at the social and political factors that make people different from each other. The four categories that I am going to examine are age, gender, social class and ethnicity. Age Age is the length of time in which a human being has existed. There are a number of different age groups in society. People are usually grouped as children, youths, young adults, middle-ages and elderly. People in each group share experiences. They also have something different to offer society. For example, elderly people are wise and working adults make contributions to the economy. People in different age groups may live, think and behave differently but are equally important and should have equal opportunities in life. Factors that make people different from each other concerning age are: * Abilities: as people get older they have had more experience in life than someone who is still a youth. For example, an adult has more knowledge about life and can deal with difficult situations. An adult can make a decision within a couple of minutes whereas a child may take a couple of hours to decide what to do. On the other hand as you get older you start to lose your memory making it hard for you to remember information that years ago would have been easy to remember. Your
How does a child progress from concrete to abstract in the use of the Mathematics Material? Introduction Some ten years ago, while struggling with the trigonometry sums my Math tutor had given me, I asked her why we needed to study mathematics. Her answer was sadly, forgettable, and so were the sines, cosines and tangents that came along with algebra and geometry. Throughout my school days, mathematics had been a nightmare. It was not until now, ten years later and after understanding all about how mathematics is taught the Montessori way that I truly realized how wonderful and interesting mathematics could be! In this essay, you will read about the importance of mathematics in our daily life. I will also discuss why a good foundation in Practical Life and Sensorial activities is necessary before starting on Mathematics. I will explain the concept of the Montessori Math Materials and lastly, talk about how the materials itself provide concrete experiences that lead to abstract understanding of Mathematics. Mathematics Everywhere The primitive people used sticks, notches and stones to count. The earliest records of counting came from physical evidence, in the form of scratches on sticks and stones, as early as 30,000 B.C. As society evolved, so did the system of enumeration. Our modern day society uses Arithmetic, which are symbols to represent different numbers. It can
This report is a personal development plan that shows an evaluation of current skills and knowledge that includes my strengths and weaknesses.
CONTENTS . INTRODUCTION 2. EVALUATION OF SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE 2.1. Technical - course-related 2.2. Social and Inter-personal 2.3. Strategic and Operational 3. STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES 4. SUMMARY OF RESULTS 5. REFERENCES . INTRODUCTION This report is a personal development plan that shows an evaluation of current skills and knowledge that includes my strengths and weaknesses. Development is a lifelong of nurturing, shaping and improving an individual's skills, knowledge and interests to ensure my maximum effectiveness and adaptability, and to minimize the obsolescence of my skills and my chances of redundancy. It does not necessarily imply upward movement; rather, it is about enabling individuals to improve and use my full potential at each career stage. (Definition of personal development planning from class material) The personal development plan for me is a chance to know my self better, I can realize what I want to achieve or where I want to go in the plan, in the short- or long-term, and also identifying the need for skills, knowledge or competence. It also helps me to define the appropriate development to meet those perceived needs. In this report, I am going to focusing on what my strengths are and
EDR P4: Explain how national initiatives promote anti-discriminatory practice Conventions, legislation and regulations: Legislation/ Policy and Procedures Who is it for? Briefly state what it covers? Give suggestions as to how it promotes anti-discriminatory practice Sex Discrimination Act 1975 Applies to men and women to promote that both should be treated not the same but equally in employment, education and transport. It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by making sure that both genders are treated equally. With out this act women and men may be deprived of certain jobs and choices. Mental Capacity Act 2005 Protects those who cannot make decisions such as people with dementia, learning difficulties and mental problems. It ensures people who lack capacity to get treated fairly and in their best interests It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by making sure that even with someone's disability to learn that they get the same choices as any other person would. The Children Act 1989 This act aims to resolve disputes between parents and parent and their children. The children act also helps those who do not know the correct position of the child i.e. if parents divorce and they don't know who has rights of the child/children. It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by putting down un-arguable laws so that children are always in a safe position i.e. If
