2.3 Explain how the health and social care practitioner own
values, beliefs and experiences can influence delivery of care.
The health and social care practitioner values, beliefs and
experiences can influence their delivery of care by what they believe in and
what they see as acceptable. It is important as a health practitioner to treat
service users equally and to never allow their personal beliefs to affect their
role of work. For example giving someone else a special treatment because you
like them better and treating a client differently because they do not have the
same religion/belief. Treating a service user badly because of their race or
their personality is against the practise. The Human Rights Act 1998, The
Equality Act of 2010, The Sex Discrimination Act 1975, Equal Opportunities Act
2004 are all legislations that link with equality and diversity. All these acts
should be met every individuals needs and should be followed. This should allow
everyone to be treated equally regarding their race, religion and sexual
orientation.It is a health care practitioner’s duty to provide everyone a
non-bias service to every individual’s beliefs.
3.2 Describe how person-centred practice is used to support
Person centred planning is knowing how someone wants to live
like now or in the future and how to make that happen. It’s a way of helping
everyone to think about what is important to them and what services and support
they want. Person centred planning can be helpful in answering people these
questions. It’s also useful to people in organising their life in a way that is
useful for them. For example David’s story it’s about making sure they meet
David’s needs. They use person centred planning for David in order for them to
communicate with him and give him the best quality of care.
Person centred practice is used to support individuals by
doing things that people see when using health and social care services as
equal. Person centred skills that are enforced to support individuals are used
for several reasons, for example lives of individual’s that are supported are
improving and are developing. This means by letting their family at the centre
of their decisions and working alongside them to their best interest.
3.3 Discuss impacts of person-centred practice on individuals.
An impact of person-centred practice on individuals meets people’s
needs and expectations
Person centred approaches is shared decisions making and
self-management support to enable people to be more active and defining the
outcome that is important to them. It focuses on individual’s personal needs,
wants and what they desire the most. This means putting people’s needs first.
Person-centred practice might have an impact on individuals
because they have a potential to achieve meeting people’s needs and
expectations. It might have an impact on them by deciding the treatment and
support that is best for them and also managing their health and care.
3.4 Describe ethical dilemmas that may arise when balancing individual’s
rights and duty of care.
A possible dilemma would be that an individual wants to do
something but you think it might be a risk to their duty of care which means
you have to do everything you can to keep them safe but, you have to respect
the individual’s rights and choices. And if you try and stop the individual
from doing something from something they want or from doing something they want
to do then you are taking away their independence. Another dilemma that may arise will be
confidentiality. If something confidential is mentioned to a colleague or a member
of the team and it involves safeguarding and the client might be at harm then,
they have to break that confidentiality and pass on the information.
