He also isn’t paying attention to him. To rectify this, the care professional should be aware of the service user’s needs. A fault in this care professional’s strategy of communication is that he is using jargon the patient will not understand, this could lead to confusion and the patient being unclear of what needs to happen. There is no contact being used which could give the patient the non-verbal signal that the care professional does not care or respect the patient. There is also a computer in between them which could distract him.
You would have to rely on the patient giving you the information for it not is socially desirable or have demand characteristics. On the other hand, it is better than individual differences as people may have the same thought patterns and processes. You can only obtain this information by self reports, which would probably give both of those issues; social desirability and demand characteristics. These would affect your results and therefore they would not be reliable or valid. If you were using the cognitive approach you would only get qualitative data which could be a problem as not everyone interprets the same answer in the same way.
Communication Style Regina Haney, Ann Crane, Farida Biobaku, Kendall Larsen HCS/ 350 July 11, 2011 Randall Webb Communication Style Effective communication in healthcare is essential to deliver good patient care. When delegating tasks to co-workers, one needs to be clear and precise. When people have a full understanding of what their job is, they will perform better and patients will get better outcomes. Without effective communication we are setting up our fellow co-workers for failure and our patients as well. Effective communication is necessary to convey the importance of instructions and task to co-workers so they can fully understand the importance of their task and the steps necessary to manage the task.
As described earlier in my reflective account (ci) a good example of practice which excludes the individual and is discriminatory is being ignored whilst having a bed bath – the lack of privacy and dignity had a lasting effect on me. Patients of a different culture/religion could be excluded. They could be discriminated against because the carers don’t believe in or simply don’t understand their faith. They may discriminate against this person because or they don’t respect the way they dress or don’t provide the right food for that religion. Avoiding people who are different, such as those with a mental/physical disability or those of a different culture, is classed as discriminatory practice.
RTT Task 1 Western Governors University A. Nursing Sensitive Indicators As the medical field becomes more-and-more complex, it is crucial that the nurse does not overlook the day-to-day needs of the individual patients. It is very important that the nurse as a professional does not become so bogged down with the medical aspect that one loses touch with the patient as a person. What may seem very minute to the nurse, can be of great significance to the patient. If the nurse is not sensitive to these minute needs, it can cause the patient to be unable to trust the medical team meeting the needs, and understanding the importance of more serious issues.
However, token economy has issues, such as that you could argue that you are taking away patient’s basic rights to use as rewards. Another criticism which shows why token economy may not be and appropriate and effective therapy is that it has low ecological validity; it may not transfer into the real world. Once patients are away from institutions, they often discarded desirable behavior as there are no longer any rewards to reinforce it. Another disadvantage is the ethical issues surrounding the use of behavioral therapy. It could be argued it doesn't really help the patient; it just makes their behavior more acceptable to others.
One of the important ethical issues to check, is that you do not know the person, and that you are not connected in anyway that is inappropriate, this is called a dual relationship this may be unavoidable in small towns, we would also need to assess that that there are no sexual attractions, on this basis the therapist may decide they cannot work with the client, and may offer the client an alternative therapist. The prospect that this could happen must be explained to the client in the initial consultation, so you can build trust, and the client can feel that you are working in their best interests. It is also important to make sure that the power of the relationships formed between therapist and client is of an equal one, it is extremely valuable to empower your client, and not take the power. The only time a therapist should show authoritarian power is when using inductions which require this
By having more information about the patient’s situation, the clinician should be able to devise courses of action specifically design for the respective patient’s needs and goals. Another factor that may break or make good results in a patient’s pursuit of reaching his or her goals is clinician and patient continuity. In some cases, some agencies have a high turnover rate among their human services specialists. Some patients may or may not like repeating their shameful, traumatic experiences to multiple clinicians. It may have been difficult enough for the patient to share the traumatic experiences with anyone, let alone continue to trust multiple clinicians who may or may not be there in the near future.
Culture can affect practice of anti-discrimination though there being miscommunication though different ideas of body language that's in a person's culture, for example there's different ways of saying hello in cultures. Culture can also cause discriminatory practice though language barriers, this may cause problems though their not being a translator, the doctors or social workers can be discriminatory in the way of not getting someone to communicate or though not asking the patient what they want for their treatment e.g. whether they need
Effective communication and interpersonal interaction between individuals is important in all situations in society, such as in health and social care settings such as hospitals, nurseries and care homes. Both theories of communication can be taken across into health and social care settings to help communication and interpersonal interaction between health and social care professionals and service users be as effective and as possible. The first theory I will be talking about is the communication cycle which i discussed in P2. The communication cycle is a type of code that requires you figuring out what the other person is trying to say and what their behaviour means. This theory would allow service users and health care professionals to communicate more easily and effectively.
