They develop evidence-based guidelines on the most effective ways on how to make a diagnosis, give out the right treatment and preventing diseases and ill health. They’ve recommend people on big causes of ill health such as smoking, obesity and consuming a large amount of alcohol. Choosing health 2004 For this the government had to listen to what the public said they want from the government to help or improve their health. The government will try and help people’s health by encouraging them to stop smoking in public places and work places as the people who are none smokers don’t have to breathe in the smoke. They will give the public the chance to have a health guide to give those help and advice on being health.
For the first time, I could actually see myself making a career out of alcoholism and addiction counselling and this has been an encouraging experience. This presentation taught me that the therapist must have ample self-awareness regarding their own opinions about AA and their personal views on addiction and losing control. As a therapist, my personal views should not dictate my treatment approach. I also recognised several techniques used by Dr. Brown. She practices reflection of feeling without criticism and translates the patient’s words to present them with a clearer picture of what they are feeling.
At Insite IDU must inject their own drugs and cannot be aided in the physical act of injection. Verbal guidance and some preliminary physical assistance is allowed which most IDU find helpful, however, the IDU that participated in the previous study conclude that; “…the rule against assisted injection at the SIF [is] a significant barrier to accessing health care, and therefore this policy should be re-evaluated” (6). Besides prevention of the spread of HIV/AIDS and HCV, Insite works hard to educate as many IDU as they can on safe injection. Education is a vital part of the services Insite offers and it should be given the same attention and dedication as prevention is given. This education should not only be limited to the patrons inside the safe injection facilities, but spread through word of mouth on the street.
Another specialty area is the control of transmissible diseases, in which epidemiology provides a comprehensive understanding of the magnitude, causes, and consequences. “Age influences people's susceptibility to disease or dysfunction (Adler, 1993).” This quotes relates to my current environment because in my current work environment, we see people from a variety of age ranges. I plan on using epidemiology by helping collecting more data/ information and being able to educate the patients through past experiences. “Theory specifies that environmental effects, such as parenting or peer and neighborhood influences, on health outcomes are perplexed with genetic effects because family generation share the same genes, and there is increasing evidence that genes play a role in the selection of one's social environments (Bergner, 1993).” The choices that we make in our lifestyles affect our health but we cannot let that determine our health outcome. The principles that I learn during course are very valuable.
As she said some students they have had in the past just hang around waiting to be told what to do whereas if I saw someone doing something I offered to help. There I quite a few things I need to be doing when I go back on placement like being more confident around the patients/service users as I think that any signs of nerves they will pick up on this and take advantage. My mentor also advised that it would be a good idea if I became familiar with some of the drugs that they use on a regular basis and gave me a sheet outlining the common drugs used in mental health nursing and she also gave me a copy of the British National Formulary (BNF) and said that if I was ever unsure about a drug I was administering I should always look in the BNF. I also need to remember to always minimize personal risk by always staying at least an arms length away from a patient and to give them lots of space and never to get stuck in a corner and if anyone does start to show any form of aggression I need to be firmer and explain that that behaviour whether verbal or otherwise is totally
Abstract Confidentiality, the duty to warn, and the duty to protect as ethical dilemmas that counselors and therapist face on a regular basis. Counselors and therapists have to ensure that the rights of their clients are protected, but they also have to adhere to certain laws and regulations that the states provide. The counselor or therapist has to make sure that they know when to report a serious offense such as child abuse or elderly abuse, when a client claims to want to kill someone, and when a client wants to commit suicide. When the counselor doesn’t report these cases, they leave themselves open to be prosecuted criminally for neglect. They have to know how when to report the cases, is there legitimate reason to believe that the client will do or has done harm to someone, or if they are talking out of frustration and anger.
I definitely believe in Carl Rogers’ theory that a therapist should have unconditional positive regard for his or her client. I think that a person cannot help an individual unless they see them in a positive light without judgment. I think that it is important for a therapist to be in the moment with their client and show them by nodding his or her head and using facial gestures that let the client know that the therapist is hanging on to every word. I think that a client comes to therapy to be heard and to feel that what he or she has to say is utterly vital and necessary. Beyond that I would take the cognitive approach, specifically Albert Ellis’ Rational-Emotive Theory.
There you have it, my honest opinion. Drug Test for welfare benefits. I don’t want to support anyone else’s habit when I am having a hard time making ends meet.” Drug testing will require recipients to stay free of drug use, making them employable. As author Heather Ben states, “The government’s latest welfare reforms all beneficiaries will be required to take pre-employment tests when requested by a prospective employer, Those who refuse or repeatedly fail, will have their benefits cut or suspended.” Passing the bill could minimize the purchase of illegal drugs, making our children and society a safer place. This also includes prescription drugs as well.
(5) This was “used to describe the path to high-performance that most teams follow”. (6) An example in relation to health and social care to further explain these stages is an alcohol anonymous group in which the members’ overall goal is to help one another stop or at least limit their alcohol intake for their long-term health and well-being. The first stage (forming) refers to people meeting each other for the first time, introducing themselves and sharing information, (7) such as their first names, ages and their reasons for being here; the reasons may include what their problems are and why they want to stop or at least limit their intake of alcohol. This stage of the process is significant in the way it helps to assure members that they are not alone in dealing with this problem and that they can relate to one another (in this case) far better than non-drinkers or at least drinkers without (serious) problems. Feelings of anxiety and reluctances are expected here; this may be because of shyness and/or that they have not yet figured out precisely what work the team will comprise of.
Risks assessments are extremely important and must be implemented and met all the time. Risk assessments are designed to ensure the Health and Safety of everyone. 2.1 Sometimes individuals may want to do something which could be a risk to their Health and safety. As a support worker you have a duty of care to that person and you must do all that you can to keep them safe but you also have a duty to respect the individual’s rights and choice, so you have a dilemma. It could be that an individual refuses their medication.
