Introduction and background

As a health worker and social care practitioner you have developed a thorough understanding of the values and principles that underpin the practice of all those who work in health and social care. This includes the theories and policies that underpin health and social care practice and explore formal and informal mechanisms required to promote good practice by individuals in the workplace, including strategies that can influence the performance of others.

 

Task 1: LO1
Understand how principles of support are implemented in health and social care practice

Scenario

Angela has been working with Ahmed and Sylvia for several years that are both 70 years old and their children live in another country. Ahmed has Alzheimer’s disease (a degenerative form of dementia) and has become increasingly violent towards Sylvia. Sylvia has a hearing impairment and can only communicate by using sign language. Ahmed has also lost the ability to distinguish between night and day and spends most nights awake and walking around the house. Angela, the care worker, has noticed that caring for Ahmed is increasingly exhausting for Sylvia, who is Ahmed’s informal carer.

Prior to his dementia both Ahmed and Sylvia discussed that they never want to live in a care home and would rather be cared for at home. Angela discusses the present situation with her line manager and both Ahmed and Sylvia’s children. They then decide to amend Ahmed’s support plan and recommend that Ahmed be moved to a care home to give Sylvia a break from her caring role. Sylvia is very upset when told of this and feels that she has not been consulted. She feels that she can no longer trust Angela and her children and believes that they are undermining her role in Department of Health and Social Care caring for Ahmed. Sylvia strongly objects to this recommendation and continues to care for Ahmed at home.

 

Using the case scenario above apply your answers to the following in a report. The first section of your report you must explain with examples how principles of support are applied to guarantee that Ahmed and Sylvia are cared for in Health and Social Care practice. In your answers, you could use examples such as dignity, choice, respecting diversity, privacy, independence etc. In addition you can use examples from the knowledge and experience gained from your workplace practice in Unit 4 (Personal and Professional Development in HSC) to support your answer to the question. [P1.1]

 

In the second section of your report you must outline what are the procedures for protecting clients, patients and colleagues such as Ahmed and Sylvia from harm. For example in your outline you could focus on confidentiality, policies about sharing information etc. Again use examples from knowledge and experience acquired from Unit 4 (Personal and Professional Development in HSC) workplace practice to support your answer. [P1.2, M2]

 

In the third section of your report, you should analyse the advantage of using a person centred approach with users such as Ahmed and Sylvia of health and social care services. [P1.2, M1]

 

Give some examples to buttress your understanding of how you used person centred approach with service users in health and social care using knowledge and experience acquired from Unit 4 (Personal and Professional Development in HSC) workplace practice in health and social care: You could include in your analysis why it is important to support the preferences of the service users such as Ahmed and Sylvia; why is it important to support service users’ rights and maintain their dignity and why is it important to support others to make informed choices about the services they need. [P1.3]

 

In the final section of your report, explain ethical dilemmas and conflicts involved in the case scenario, examples that may arise when providing care, support and protection to users of health and social care. For example, you could incorporate into your discussion concepts such as protection from risk of harm; rights of individuals to take risks etc. Your answers should also reflect an ethical dilemma you have experienced when delivering care and how those were resolved. This is linked to your workplace practice experience. [P1.4]

 

To achieve M1, judgements have been made about what makes person centered approach effective in the case scenario and give examples from your own health workplace setting.

To achieve M2, complex information using confidentiality has been synthesised and processed to outline the procedure for protecting clients, patients, and colleagues from harm.

 

Task 2: LO2 Understand the impact of policy, legislation, regulation, codes of practice and standards on organisation policy and practice

Scenario

Rachel is worried about her mother because previously care workers abused her. When Rachel’s mum became ill, it became clear she was struggling to live on her own. While also looking after her young son and her parents – in – law, Rachel began the search for a suitable care home that would provide care and also alleviate her concerns about safeguarding her mum from abuse. Since her mum was paying for her own care, Rachel thought it would be easy to find the right care home. However, the reality of finding the appropriate care home for her mother was anything but.

In the first section of the information pack report you must explain the implementation of policies e.g. confidentiality, safeguarding, Every Child Matters) legislations (e.g. Care Act 2014) regulations by Care Quality Commission (CQC codes) and codes of practice i.e. Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) that are relevant to Rachel finding a care home for her mother and also to your own work in health and social care to support your answer. [P2.1]

In the second section, you must explain how local policies and procedures can be developed in accordance with national and policy requirements. Relate your answers to the brief scenario and also to your own workplace setting. [P2.2, D2]

Finally you must evaluate the impact of policy, legislation, regulation and Codes of Practice on organisational policy and practice with respect to Rachel and her mother. Relate your answers also to your own workplace setting [P2.3]

 

To achieve, D2, substantial activities or investigations have been organised using your own relevant health and social care experience to clarify how local guidelines at your care setting and procedures at your care setting such as changes to practice and developmental needs can be established in accordance with national and policy requirements such as the Care Standards Act 2000.

 

Task 3: LO3 Understand the theories that underpin health and social care practice

Scenario

As a recent graduate trainee employee, you have been requested by your line manager to carry out a research to produce a paper to be used as part of mandatory induction training for new employees with a special focus on understanding the theories that form the basis of health and social care practice. In the first part of the research paper you are requested to explain the theories that underpin health and social care.

In the first part of your research paper you might want to explain theories that underpin health and social care. You may want to focus on human growth and development theorist (i.e. Erikson, Freud, etc), managing loss and change, managing stress and behaviour and use examples from own workplace in the context of health and social care to buttress your explanation. Assess an online self-assessment on stress level [P3.1]

In the second part of your research paper, analyse with examples, the impact of social processes, e.g. poverty, unemployment, social exclusion, marginalisation etc in health and social care in a diverse society. How does these social processes combine to shape the life of an individual [P3.2, M3]

Finally, in your research paper, evaluate the effectiveness of inter professional working. You are expected to give examples from experiences from own workplace to show the effectiveness of inter – professional working. [P3.3,]

 

To achieve M3, logical principles have been applied and justified in analysing with examples, the impact of social processes, e.g. poverty, unemployment, social exclusion, marginalisation etc. in health and social care in a diverse society and state how these social processes combine to shape the life of an individual.

 

Task 4: LO4 Be able to contribute to the development and implementation of health and Social care organizational policy

Produce a report on how you are able to contribute to the development and implementation of health and social care organisational policy.

In the first section of your report you must explain your own role; your own responsibilities; accountabilities and your duties in the context of working with those within and outside the health and social care workplace. Here you are to produce a list of your own roles, responsibilities accountabilities and duties within your workplace. Use your own workplace setting to buttress your understanding. You are to provide evidence based in the form of witness statement from your workplace to support your answer. [P4.1]

Secondly, you must evaluate your own contribution in your health and social care workplace practice to the development and implementation of health and social care organisational policy. Use Gibbs reflective cycle to support your answer. [P4.2]

Finally, in your report you must make recommendations on how to develop your own contributions to meeting good practice requirements. [P4.3, D3]

 

To achieve D3, ideas have been generated and decisions taken when making recommendations such as upgrading knowledge and skills, support networks and professional relationship to support your answers.
