This prevents the women of the family from obtaining the prenatal care they need because they lack the resources necessary to get care in the first place. Low birth weight is a good indicator for a newborn’s health and survival. In a population, low birth weight is a sign of long-term maternal inadequate nutrition, poor health, and poor health care (Health Status Statistics: Morbidity, 2013). Low birth
In addition, it was socially and morally unacceptable for a woman to be unmarried. Victorian women were forced to live by a number of certain rules, however men lived more freely. They were not judged as harshly by society as women. The different male and female roles were referred to as ‘separate spheres’ and women were often perceived as inferior to men. Source 1 states that the gender difference idea was taken from the Bible, as ‘God has’ ‘designed’ men and women to have different roles.
The two generate an interesting debate; however they might lose their credibility because Robert brought the fact that Jacqueline was married which is not job related and could be discriminatory to unmarried applicant while Paul he continually refer about Sonya’s enthusiasm and could be the selling point but this is not also offer any substantial reasons for her preference. One thing that I observed for the two is that Robert and Paul have a very good relationship – when they do have disagreements they are understanding and accepting of their differences and compromise when necessary. Robert doesn’t think too highly of the swinging bachelor persona, but it hasn’t affected job performance – anyway, it’s diversity that makes life
Principles of health and social care practice In this essay I will be describing the principles and outlining the procedures that are needed to safeguard colleagues and service users from harm I will also state the relevance of legislation, regulations, code of practice and policies and procedures, while defining the importance of them. The theories are also relevant to health and social care; I will state what theory is and how we benefit from inter-professional working also the impact it has on individuals and services what our roles and responsibilities are in an outside work settings. The principles of care provides the foundation upon which the principles of practices are applied, values are subjective and varies from people and culture. Service users should feel valued and recognised as an individual, promoting their rights in a way that enables the service user’s choices, involving them in making decisions to meet their needs taking in perspective their rights to be treated with dignity, and have their privacy and confidentiality respected Data Protection Act (1998) states organisations are legally required to do this, information must be shared only on a need to know basis example if a service user is a danger to themselves or others even if there is a risk to the health and welfare of the care worker etc, then information must be disclosed otherwise personal records must be kept confidential, service users have the right to access information that is stored about them Access to information Act (1985) and freedom of information act (2000) suggest that. Independence must be promoted so that with support they will feel empowered to take control of their own lives, Care workers must engage constantly with diverse ethnic groups to broaden their learning to implement better skills in practice.
Healthcare is an important area where the cultural practices of an individual have got lot of influence. Therefore it is important for nurses as healthcare providers to know how to assess a person’s heritage in order to build up a healthy client- provider relationship and provide holistic care. Heritage and ethnicity are in a way inter-related as ethnic groups have a common or similar heritage. Different cultures or ethnicities have different life values about spirituality, relationships, wellbeing or illness and life and death etc. The use of heritage assessment tools helps one to understand the values and
HERITAGE PAPER HERITAGE PAPER Stephann Bertrand NRS 429V Family Health Promotion July 22nd, 20012 People’s health is influenced by culture and beliefs (Eldeman, & Mandle, 2010). Culture is the manner people live which shapes their health. Heritage denotes something immaterial, a custom that is passed from one generation to another such as routine used to guard health, sustain health, and re-establish health. In order to be familiar with one’s personal beliefs and health customs, heritage assessment is utilized. However, in dealing with people, ethnicity plays an imperative function (Winkelman, 2001).
If you were born into a very Christian family you might find it hard to accept people of other religions because yours is right and the only one you know. This could affect you when working in a health and social care setting as you might cause friction with other service providers/users, or even affect the care that you give to them. Another example of socialisation preventing anti-discriminatory practice is though in a culture saying 'please' and 'thank you' to things, where in another culture this may not be normal and so if someone doesn't say thank you or please to something this may be seen as rude, and could make the person treat the other person differently. How would culture present a difficulty when promoting anti-discriminatory practice? 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 and cultural competency in health promotion The heritage assessment tool is useful in that it evaluates the needs of the whole person and allows the nurse to provide care using the holistic approach. This includes addressing the cultural aspects of the patient’s lifestyle. Care can then be provided to patients and the community as a whole without infringing on their culture or religion. It gives the nurse a better understanding of how to approach caring for the patients or communities and the tools she would need with the approach. Health traditions differ for every culture.
I agree with Warner in saying that we need a cultural change health habits.We live in society where a high percentage of our youth is obese and before they turn eighteen they have health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure.The parents are the one to blame, i totally understand some parents don't have the time,resources, or money,but their are ways they can decrease their children health risk. There are a number of things i see in our culture that encourage "bad" health habits.individuals skipping breakfast in the morning is one example, not eating breakfast effects metabolism and your ability to concentrate due to the fact your body has limited energy.Not brushing your teeth before you go to bed is another bad health habit,many people don't know that no brushing your teeth at night can rotten your teeth and it may cause you to have gum disease later on in life.Another bad habit that i see in our culture is individuals not eating a few a hours prior to drinking alcohol, this may lead to excessive throwing up,diarrhea,dehydration and alcohol poison. Sleeping late is major bad habit in our culture, it can cause you become sick or effect your ability to remember and think. There are a number of things i see in our culture that encourage "good" health habits.Mediation is one, mediation can lower your blood pressure,stress level, and decrease your chance of having a stroke or heart attack.Drinking water is another good habit that flushes toxins out the body and decrease your chance of getting acne or pimples. Natural food is always a good health habit that gives you more nutrients and fiber unlike regular food.
Though there are faults with both sides, everybody has their own reasons for supporting or not supporting artificial insemination. The reasons a person would have for opposing artificial insemination could be a number of different things. The most obvious of these reasons would be related to religion. Many churches teach their followers that “it is morally bad for a couple to generate human life by inseminating the wife with sperm provided by a man who is not her husband or by inseminating a woman other than the wife with sperm from the husband…(May, PhD).” This is because it is being done outside of the
