These side effects may affect one person but not another. This would be hard to study as you can not say it is exactly one thing, and then you would have to look at the extraneous variables which affect each problem. However, this could also be good as it is not really being reductionist in its own approach; it is looking at all the possible individual differences. If choosing a different approach, like cognitive, then it would still be difficult because you do not know what the person is thinking. You would have to rely on the patient giving you the information for it not is socially desirable or have demand characteristics.
Structure is measured by the staff: amount, skill-level, and education or certification. Process indicators measure the facets of nursing care, such as assessment and intervention. Outcome indicators refer to patient outcomes that are affected by nursing care and are considered nursing-sensitive if directly affected by the quantity or quality of the nursing care (ANA, 2013). Through understanding of nursing-sensitive indicators and integration into daily practice, the staff caring for Mr. J could have been more aware of potential issues that interfere with patient care. Knowledge of the increased risk for pressure ulcers and the need for frequent turning and off-loading of pressure points could have allowed the staff to prevent the one forming along Mr. J’s spine.
Difficulties that may arise when implementing anti-discriminatory practice and ways of overcoming the difficulties in health and social care In this unit so far I have looked at ways in which individuals should be treated in health and social care settings. I have also looked at legislation, policies and discrimination. In health and social care, it is important to be careful with what you say and do. This is so that you do not cause offence to anyone or discriminate against a certain individual or group of individuals. It is important to promote anti-discriminatory practice when working in health and/or social care settings however; when you are implementing this, there can be some difficulties.
By assessing their needs accessing their needs and getting required information about their communication needs you can find out the best way to communicate with a certain individual. By not using the correct aids and equipment, such as hearing aids, can make individuals feel isolated or they may even hold back on communicating at all. 3. Analyse features of the environment that may help or hinder communication. Some features that will help or hinder communication are things like lighting, if the lighting is poor they may not be able to see sufficiently and may not understand you, whereas if it is good they will be able to see what is going on around them and also will be able to see what you are doing or saying.
P2 and P3 Explain different psychological approaches to health and social practice Cognitive learning theorists believe that learning is an internal process in which information is combined into one as cognitive structure. Learning occurs through internal processing of information. One example of cognitive perspective that is used in healthcare practice can include supporting individuals that have learning difficulties. On a day to day basis, individuals with learning difficulties can find skilled tasks very difficult and confusing; because of this they are likely to get very frustrated. The cognitive perspective can help people with these learning difficulties and support them to help make sense of these tasks by identifying basic thoughts
With good communication it is less likely to be any mistakes made, if a mistake was made it should be able to be identified and discussed through good communication. 2.2 Promoting effective communication, the factors to consider are the individuals, and there preferred method of communicating. Verbal communication you would need the correct tone, pitch, does the individual need to be spoken to loudly slowly and clearly, or they could prefer quite softly and perhaps on their own. Correct eye contact is a factor to consider when communicating with anyone, staff or individuals. 3.1 People from different backgrounds, for example a some culture’s would find eye contact rude and unacceptable, some people from different backgrounds may use slang words for example, calling people babes, me duck, or may ask if they want the loo, some people may not understand what that means which could cause distress and a misunderstanding.
The fact that people had to repeatedly asked company Q to carry specific product line represents that the company is not in tune with their community and with the needs of their customers. Company Q should develop methods to research what goods are selling better in certain areas compared to what goods and merchandise is selling slower. If company Q can stay ahead of what the customer wants, the customer will feel as if the store is listening to them, knows them, and appreciates them for shopping with them . This problem can be easily remedied simply by conducting formal and informal surveys, placing suggestion box around the store, and simply asking their consumers what products they would like to purchase inside of their store. The sooner that company Q can anticipate and foresee what products are more in demand the sooner the company will be able to create a better profit margin, establish a good working relationship with the customer, and achieve a favorable public and consumer perception.
Explain what is meant by the term dysarthria. Dysarthria is a disorder of speech 3. Describe the communication challenges presented to the individual and self by dysphasia and dysarthria. People with dysphasia often have language that is fluent with a normal rhythm and articulation but it is meaningless as they fail to comprehend what they are saying because they have problems word finding. So they can be asking for something but the words mean something else and communication could be difficult when talking to the individual.
Make sure you listen effectively and the use of body language is also important. 3.4 Sometimes you may need to get more specialist advice because an individual’s communication is too complex to deal with alone. Such as a speak and language therapist, sign language training. Where there is a language issue then you may need to get an interpreter.
Task 5: 3.2: Measuring the quality in the health and social care sector presents distinct challenges. For instance, the large influence played by subjective judgements about the quality of personal relationships between carer and user and the process-related service characteristics makes it difficult to develop indicators of service quality, including those of service impact on final outcomes. Using some of the key features of the ‘Production of Welfare’ approach, the paper discusses recent developments in the UK of the theoretical and practical frameworks used for assessing quality in social care and for understanding the final impact of services on the well-being of their recipients. Key current and future challenges to the development of such frameworks include difficulties in disentangling the impact of social care services on final outcomes from the often dominating effects of other, non-service
