The implementation of EHRs in LTC facilities or home health can manage patients care to promote improvements in the patients outcome and possible help decrease medical cost. In this forever changing healthcare industry, which stresses continuity of care, the movement to push for EHRs in LTC facilities is necessary. Review of another study stressed that the healthcare team is vital in the implementing of EHRs. The healthcare team approach is vital to the success of the EHRs and vice versa. If done effectively, care coordination puts patients at the center of the care process, encouraging, engaging as well as responsibility.
An individual has just come back from hospital after having an operation. TASK 2 Your work is running a campaign to improve staff understanding of all aspects of person centred care. You have been asked to create the following materials: • A poster which describes a range of person centred approaches to care • A handout which explains why person centred values are important and how they influence social care work • A poster that explains the factors which can contribute to the wellbeing of individuals • A handout that explains the link between identity, self image and self esteem • A guide for social care workers
Practice nurses are hugely involved in health promotion and preventative work which is suggested by Williams and Sibbald (1999) to have caused some anxiety among health visitors as to their professional identity. According to the Healthy Child Programme (HCP) (DOH 2009) one of the lead roles for the health visitor is to ensure that the different professionals contributing within the HCP communicate effectively and provide co-ordinated and holistic care tailored to the needs of the family.

Unit SHC36 Promote person centred approaches in health and social care 2.2 How do you use care plans when applying person centred values A person and their needs should be at the centre of the support process. A carers role is to make sure that a person has every opportunity to state how they wish their needs to be met. This is especially important when the issues regarding the person are difficult or of a sensitive nature. Person centred working is about putting people in control of their lives, whether it be a new service user or a person who has been “stuck in the system” for many years. Most places will have a format (usually a care plan) for identifying needs such as: * What they are able to do independently * Personal Care * Nutritional Needs * Daily Life * Choice and Control * Risks * Medications * Work, leisure and learning * Physical and mental health It is important that everything is included in the care plan.
Training and Development Welcome Knox HCS 341 March 17, 2014 Dr. Rita Fields Training and Development My paper will be about training and development in healthcare and why it is vital to have. I will also discuss the importance of measuring employee’s competencies and the process of tracking and evaluating training effectiveness. Training and development occurs in almost every company today. Both are very important to any business that wants to succeed. It is more vital to health care because we are dealing with people’s lives.
Unit 30 Assignment 1.1 The policy of person-centred care has become a mainstay of efforts to reform health care in the UK. Government policy is now built around this core concept, a major aspect of which is enabling individuals to participate in decision-making about their care at every level. By concentrating on the individual’s wishes and aspirations and placing them at the centre of a ‘planning circle’ the care team can assist with goal setting to ensure their best interests are maintained and the individual’s preferences are considered. Working in partnership is a key element of practice within health and social care. The concepts of power sharing, consultation and joint ways of working are essential for effective service provision.
Research methodology P1. Explain the function of research in Health and Social Care. Definition of research - ‘The systematic investigation into study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions’ www.google.com accessed 27/09/12 Identifying needs – When working in the Health and Social care sector, the main priority of the job is to identify the needs of the need of the patient in which they are caring for. For them to accurately determine the need of a patient, research must be carried out. Perhaps the research could be actively going out and speaking to someone receiving care, whether it is in a care home or a hospital they need to find out what the patients really want from the health carers.
The services that are needed for a new housing estate that has lots of children are different from those that have a wells established estate with a larger amount of older adults; also the risks can change as well. The government and the local authorities are always gathering data at local and national levels monitoring whether or not the health and social care needs are adequate to meet their needs. Within the UK the amount of older people is progressively increasing because people live longer as attention is being given on what the best way is to provide the services that meet their needs effectively and efficiently. There are some examples of where gaps in provisions have been highlighted in recent years e.g. support for adolescents with mental health needs and maternity
P1: You need to explain the function of research in health and social care. Research by definition is a planned process where information has been collected and analysed for a specific purpose; the findings are then reported and published. Research has many functions such as; identifying needs, highlighting gaps in provision, planning provision, informing policy or practice, extending knowledge and understanding, improving practice, aiding reflection, allowing progress to be monitored and examining topics of contemporary importance. Firstly identifying needs in health and social care is central to a service user’s care as the professionals need to identify the needs of the individual to adapt the care to be specific to the service user.
The Framework is to be used by both clients and professionals and identifies targets for both health and social care service providers to assist clients in their daily living requirements. It aims to provide more choice in care, tailored to the individual clients needs. (NSF 2004)This is particularly relevant with Spina Bifida as the condition and its symptoms vary enormously even within the same type and with a lesion in the same place. Often there will be a specialist nurse caring specifically with patients with spina bifida as the NSF aims to have care ‘provided by people with knowledge and experience of specific conditions’ (Lggulden
