We must treat every individual the same regardless of any medical conditions, religions, culture and life style and deserves the same care and respect. 1.2 Critically review approaches to person-centred practice Person centred practice is needs-led, in that it should cover every aspect of an individual’s health and social care requirements. There are many different approaches however there are elements that should be included in all approaches. * Rights - supporting and encouraging an individual to maintain their rights * Independence - promoting, enabling and encouraging an individual to be as independent as possible. * Choice - allowing, ensuring and promoting individuals to have and make choices.
For example if the resident doesn’t wish to be washed by a male member of staff this should influence all areas of that persons care. Each individual should be treated with respect and dignity. Each person is to be looked at as a whole not just one aspect of there needs. 1.3 Person centred values should influence all aspects of social care work. There should be the best possible care provided to the individual and be meeting all needs that’s are required.
Assignment 303 - Principles of diversity, equality and inclusion in adult social care settings Task B A) The equality act is a legislation that is in place to ensure that people are given equal rights and opportunities regardless of their age, gender, disability, reace, religion or belief and sexual orientation. This legislation promotes diversity, equality and inclusion by making it a requirement that they are commonly practiced and incorporated into the health and social care setting making it illegal to discriminate against a person / or persons for any reason. Diversity is all about difference, and its value is the quality and variety that different people bring to society. Examples of how people differ from one another, it can be through appearance, ability, race, gender, culture, talent and beliefs. Equality is about everybody being equal to one another, but not necessarily treating them all the same.
Diversity is about recognising and valuing everyone’s culture, personality, age, race, sex, disability, gender, religion and beliefs. * Equality – treating people in a way that is appropriate for their needs. Making sure people are treated fairly and given fair chances. Recognise their needs and that they are met in different ways. * Inclusion – equal opportunities for everyone whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, to be included.
Diversity is about recognising differences and valuing the differences. It consist of visible and none visible factors which include the characteristics of a person such as their background, culture personality. In addition to the characteristics that are protected under the discrimination legislation in terms of race, disability, gender, religion, sexual orientation and age by recognising and understanding that everyone has the right to be treated as a individual and encouraging individuals to express their individuality freely if they wish everyone who is cared for in your setting will feel valued as a individual. Equality is about creating a fairer society where everyone can participate and has the opportunity to fulfil their potential this is stated in the department of health 2004. Equality also means being equal no matter what you race, gender, age, disability, religion, cultural differences and sexual orientation.
So in a health and social care setting they have to make sure that everyone is treated equally not only by you but by everyone including the other children there. You have to make sure that no one is left out and people from different backgrounds work with each
Equality Equality means that although everybody is an individual and has different needs, all service users should be treated equally and given the same quality of care. Inclusion Inclusion means that everybody should be helped to be included, regardless of their ability, gender, age, etc. This makes people feel like they are respected
1.1c - Define what is meant by: Inclusion Regardless of what disability someone has or whatever age they are, each person is entitled to equal access to any service. No one is to be excluded or pushed out, everyone should have equal opportunity to be included. This could be in activities or decision making etc. 1.1d - Define what is meant by: Discrimination Discrimination is treating someone differently due to some aspect of their lives being different from others. There are many ways people can be discriminated against, e.g age, religion, sexuality, race, gender.
Explain models of practice that underpin equality, diversity and inclusion in own area of responsibility It is important in my role that all individuals, their families, carers and members of staff and all other key partners whom I work with, are treated equally and fairly. Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect and it is one of my responsibilities to ensure that the vast legislative and regulatory framework which underpins our Care Home setting in this respect are acknowledged, understood and observed at all times. It is important to understand what these terms mean and how they relate to each other:- “Equality “ is about ensuring fairness between individuals so that everyone has equal opportunity to fulfil their potential and that thy have the same rights and status irrespective of their background, age, sexual orientation, gender, beliefs or religion. It is important to note that “equality” does not mean to treat everyone the same. Every person is unique and is individual so in order to promote equality it is important to treat everyone fairly.
