Inappropriate moving and handling practices may result in tissue damage and contribute to ulcer formation. Once formed, pressure ulcers may prove difficult to treat and their presence may have implications on how a client may be positioned and moved and may further hinder their recovery. Many ulcers could, and should, be prevented (Disabled Living Foundation (DLF), 2001). It is therefore essential that practitioners are aware of those moving and handling techniques that may assist in the prevention of pressure ulcer formation as well as mindful of any practices that may lead to tissue damage, albeit
Good quality care relationships are dependent on a number of factors that are changeable. A key factor that affects the quality of care is that the relationship between the “carer” and the person being cared for should be based on clear communication, trust and respect from both parties. Without this both factions may feel the care provided is good but if there is no communication due to lack of trust or respect then the standard of care may be lacking. To ensure that both parties are not vulnerable to abuse or being over stretched, external services need to be available and appropriate measures in place to assist them. The difficulties that carers may face can be mental, physiological and/or physical.
Concept of helping clients during the case management process The concept of helping clients during the case management process will reduce recidivism, enhance public safety, and promote success. The case management concept is complex because different components may happen at different times during the treatment process. Each individual is unique and different, so therefore, the treatment has to be different. Freeman (2001) stated, “The traditional case management plan calls for reduction of problematic symptoms by a certain percentage” (p. 77). Case managers are professionals who provide treatment and services to clients so they can live productive in society.
By not acknowledging and finding about what the individual prefers they may not feel respected or feel they have a say in things, this could lower their self-esteem. Biii) It is important to review care plans with an individual because circumstances change and it is important to check that the care package is doing the job it was intended to do since it was originally set up, or from the last review, if not it could continue for a long period of time regardless of whether it is meeting the needs of the individual. It will also give those involved a chance to ask the individual if they feel it is
I have to act in the person’s best interest but instead of encouraging them to avoid risks I have to support them and enable them to taking part in activities. I have to act in the individuals best interest, keep them safe, carry out risk assessments, promote informed choices but also respect their decision and right to live their life as they choose. If the risk seems great to me I would document it and discuss the matter with my manager. Another area where duty of care dilemmas may arise are confidentiality issues. When a confidential information is shared with me and it concerns safeguarding and there is a possibility of harm or someone’s wellbeing is threathened I might have to make a decision and disclose this information.
M3 –Discuss difficulties that may arise when implementing anti-discriminatory practice in health and social care settings. Your personal beliefs and values can have an influence on: Culture, beliefs, past events, socialisation Environmental influences Health and well-being Developing greater self-awareness and tolerance of differences Committing to the care value base Careful use of language Working within legal, ethical and policy guidelines How can our personal beliefs influence our values? Values are a person’s judgement of what is important in life. In a workplace an individuals personal beliefs may influence their values as they might need to do something that goes completely against their personal beliefs,
If professionals have negative thoughts about their service users, it will affect the way they treat and care for them, This will not promote an anti discriminatory practice because the service user is being treated differently due to the service providers own opinions and views. Past events can affect anti-discriminatory practice being put in place; an example of this could be that if the service provider has experienced something awful in their caring situation of a certain ethnic background, there are chances of the service provider failing to provide an active and caring service to the user. Health and well being can also influence the way the service providers provide care for the service users. An example of this could be that if the patient is gay and the service provider puts their health documents at the bottom because they don’t want to treat a gay person. This will not promote an anti discriminatory practice because the service provider is failing to treat the person because of their sexual orientation.
Unit 304 2.1 Describe potential conflicts or dilemmas that may arise between the duty of care and an individual’s rights. Conflicts and Dilemmas that may arise between the duty of care and individuals rights could be staff having a difference of opinion over an individual for example a staff member believing they have signs of abuse and another staff member thinking they don’t. This could lead to conflict between the individual’s family / carers if staff involved other agencies such as Social Services. Dilemmas could be knowing when to get further help regarding child/adult protection and safeguarding issues for example if you did not refer the case to social services the individual might still continue to suffer abuse. Another dilemma would be knowing when to break confidentiality and share information.
Safeguarding An informative guide for people who work in the health care profession What is safeguarding?

I think that working with participants who have severe mental illness might be a challenge. But in general, race, age, and gender, are realities that certainly can have a negative impact on the therapeutic relationship. However, my argument is that this is not limited to CBT. Therapists must be aware of these dynamics and address them adequately no matter what intervention is
