Unit 304 2.1 While working in care, the aim is to give the best possible standard of care to service users, but sometimes there can be a conflict beetween the individual’s or their family’s wishes and rights and the duty of care. In this case the most important thing is to decide whether the person is aware of the risks and consequences of the decision and has the capacity to make the decision. Before taking best interest decisions I have to make sure that the person definitely lacks the capacity. The person or their next of kin has an overall right and responsibility in decision making for issues relating their care, and I need their consent to deal with certain issues. When a dilemma arises, my responsibility is to support individuals or their families to make informed choices.

Making sure to give them privacy when they wish to be alone or when having private conversation. Encouraging people to be independent even if they choose riskier option.
To provide person centred practice all staff should give their service user freedom of choice, even if they don’t agree with the choices being made. Staff has to respect the choice of the individual. By not allowing a service user to make choices, even if this could pose a risk to them could have a negative impact on them as they are not being able to live as they wish.

Culture as a concept is important to sociologists because it holds a society together. Rules, laws and morals guide our behaviours and creates stability and order throughout societies. Morals come from religion and our parents: different kinds of morals differ between social groups. Subculture is a culture within a culture. It shares definite features in relation with the dominant culture, but it also has particular values, norms, attitudes and behaviours that is specific to it.
