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
I have been asked to produce a piece of coursework for Child Development. The coursework is to do a Child Study on a child of my choice looking at different areas of Child Development. The study will last approximately 11 months. There will be deadlines for completing the various stages of the study and I will have to make a plan to keep within the time scale. At the end of the study there will be an evaluation and conclusion and then the coursework will handed in for marking. The aim of this coursework is to study a child in their early stages of development. I will hope to understand the physical, intellectual, social and emotional development of my study child. I will be observing one child for this study. For physical development I will be observing the child during play and other learning activities and see how he develops throughout the study. I'll be measuring his growth by doing checks on the child's height and weight during the study. Also I will be observing the child's diet as this is important in the child's growth. One of the ways I'll measure the child's growth is to have a height and measuring chart on the wall and four times throughout the study I will take the height and weight measurements and mark them on the chart. The child will also be able to follow their progress which will give him an interest in the process. Intellectual development is about
Unit 3: Individual Needs in Health & Social Care Instruction: What is this unit about? The aim of this unit is to the aim of this unit is to enable learners to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills related to meeting individual needs. Knowledge and understanding of the needs of individuals is fundamental to delivering effective health and social care. Assessment of the needs of individuals is necessary before a plan can be developed to meet their needs. In this unit learners will explore different needs in relation to MASLOWS hierarchy of needs and consider how needs may vary at different life stages. The unit requires learners to gather relevant information from an individual to enable identification of the general needs of an individual and to use the information from this assessment to develop a plan to improve the individual’s general health and wellbeing. Scenario: you are a trainee health and social care support worker. You have been asked your supervisor to prepare a presentation detailing an action plan created by you for an individual that will help them to improve their overall health and well being. Learning outcomes: On completion of this unit a learner should: . Know everyday needs of individuals. 2. Understand factors that influence the health and needs of individuals. 3. Be able to plan to meet the health and wellbeing needs of an individual.
________________ M2,D1 Unit 2 Equality diversity and rights in health and social care M2 Assess the influence of a recent national policy initiative promoting anti discriminatory practice D1 Evaluate the success of a recent initiative in promoting anti-discriminatory practice In this criterion there will be an assessment on a recent national policy initiative and the way it promotes anti- discriminatory practice in health and social care. Individual’s rights within a health and social care setting include having access to services and medication. Services should not unlawfully discriminate service users due to their race, gender, disability, religion, belief, or sexuality. Another right of an individual within health and social care is being treated with respect and dignity. No matter what the persons circumstances are when using health or social care services they should always be treated fairly and with respect defiantly if they are in a vulnerable state. Communication is also another right of an individual. Every health and social care setting should have trained professionals who know how to convey effective communication to avoid assumptions and discrimination. As the patients or service users should feel comfortable talking to the staff and know
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
Child Development short task 2 Georgina Butler Introduction In this short task, I am going to produce a magazine article to highlight advantages and disadvantages of breast feeding & bottle and to help new mothers to decide the best way to feed their baby. To produce this I will need to research the advantages and disadvantages. I will also need to find opinions for both methods; I will do this by writing a questionnaire which will provide a number of different opinions. I will research how to set out an article and how to make it appealing to my target audience. I will then evaluate my article and get new mums to read it and give their opinion. Where can I get my information? Leaflets- use to find trusted information about breast and bottle feeding also analyse the way articles are set out. Text books- trusted information giving two points of view use to find out about both points of views. Parenting magazines- use to analyse articles and ideas on how to set my own article out. Formula milk company web sites – helps understand what’s in the milk and why people choose. Videos – giving peoples opinions on bottle and breast feeding. Internet- I can use it to find opinions and facts about both methods. Mothers- real experiences, opinions and views. Resources list Internet – get opinions Magazines – to see articles and get opinions Computer-
Care Value Base The Care Value Base was created by the Care Sector Consortium in 1992, it came from the NVQ's (National Vocational Qualification) to support a well-known set of principles and values for Care workers and professionals in Health and Social Care. The Care Value Base provides people rights and responsibilities, equality and diversity, and confidentiality. The Care Value Base was originally identified in codes of Care practice. A Care Value Base is an ethical policy code which tells how carers need to act in different situations; they are not allowed to discriminate against anyone, be mean, or to provide poor care for their patients. For the first time the Health and Social Care industry had a basic code from which they could make ethical decisions about specific situations. The Care Value Base is made out of five elements: * Anti Discriminatory Practice * Confidentiality * Individual Rights * Personal beliefs and identity * Effective Communication Anti Discriminatory Practice The Anti Discriminatory Practice stops people from being discriminated against or discriminating others which include: The sex discrimination Act 1975, Race Relations Act 1976 and Disabled Persons Act 1986, these Acts are present in all Health and Social Settings. e.g. In a hospital ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) ward, there is a service user who is an African and female. She also has
Coronary Heart Disease by Siobhán Buckley What is Coronary Heart Disease? Coronary heart disease is a condition where fatty deposits and cell-proliferation build-up in the arteries supplying the heart muscle. These plaques form commonly in a condition called atherosclerosis. It is the most common form of heart disease. Coronary heart disease is most common in males and older people. It is a narrowing of the blood vessels (coronary arteries) that supply oxygen and blood to the heart. Coronary heart disease is a major cause of illness and death. Coronary heart disease is generally caused by atherosclerosis - when plaque (cholesterol substances) build up on the artery walls, causing them to narrow, resulting in less blood flow to the heart. Sometimes a clot may form which can block the flow of blood to heart muscle. Coronary heart disease commonly causes angina pectoris (chest pain), shortness of breath, heart attack (myocardial infarction) and other symptoms. About the Heart: the heart is a human fist-sized muscle that beats about 70 times per minute and pumps oxygen-rich blood around the body. After leaving the heart, blood goes to the lungs where it gathers oxygen. This oxygen-rich blood returns to the heart (from the lungs) and is pumped to organs throughout the body through arteries. The blood returns to the heart through veins and is pumped to the lungs again.
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
Task 6 What is the care value base? * Guidelines and codes of practice followed by care workers to empower service users. * Empower means giving someone the ability to do something him or herself.
