Explain how national initiatives promote anti-discriminatory practice – P4 Human Rights Act 1998 The Human Rights Act 1998 outlines the rights and freedoms that every individual in the UK (England and Wales) has. *Some of these rights, in relation to health and social care are; * Right to life * Freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment * Respect for you private and family life, home and correspondence * Freedom of thought, belief or religion * Freedom of expression * Protection from discrimination in respect of these rights and freedoms However, in some health and social care situations these rights may have to be infringed upon. For example, the right to life does not include the right to end your own life. This means that if a service provider is under the impression that a service user is endangering themselves and their life then the service provider can, under certain circumstances, search a person’s room or even ask their family members for any previous problems the service user may have had. This situation may disrespect the service user’s rights but the service provider must do everything they can, within reason, to protect the lives of those who they are caring for.
The highest moral right is liberty and from it any other goods will follow. These secondary rights could include freedom to get married, or be a musician, but these are to be pursued privately. Negative liberty is “freedom from”, only when an individual is free to make his own decisions and actions without coercion is a person truly free (Machan 5). This “freedom from” emphasizes right before good. According to Hospers The essential ingredient in all freedom from coercion by other is one’s basic and inalienable right; it is fundamental to human survival and the development of the self (Machan 8).
U N I T 7 1. Explain how and why person-centered values must influence all aspects of health and social-care work It is very important that we as care workers apply person-centered values in every aspect of the work we do. Some of the key values include: -Treating people as individuals. That is very important, because people we support they have their likes, dislikes, strength and personality. -Supporting people to exercise their rights-the rights of people are protected by law and in particular by the Human Rights Act 1998.Sixteen basic human rights have been incorporated into UK law.
Within a health and social care environment organisations have to abide by the national initiatives. National initiatives are legislations passed by the governments to protect employers and employees from being discriminated against. A few national initiatives that are used more often in health and social care settings are: The Human Rights Act 1998, The Data Protection Act 1998 and The Discrimination Act 2000.

Unit 307 Outcome 1 1.There are numerous pieces of legislation and codes of practice designed to protect individuals. These are to protect from the breeches of confidentiality were the information held on that of the individual is only reviewed by staff directly involved in their care. The data act 1998 is a piece of legislation which defines the law on processing data of people living within the United Kingdom.

Kay Neal Mike Jackson Ethics June 24th 2013 Ethical Dilemmas of A Licensed Clinical Social Worker There are several ethical, as well as moral dilemmas that face A licensed Clinical Social Worker. Among them, and perhaps one of the most important, is the patients right to confidentiality. Society as well as legal authorities have recognized the right of patient confidentiality. The problem here, is when a patient informs the social worker that he or she is misusing, or abusing a medication. Morally the social worker may feel inclined to inform the patients doctor that the patient is at risk of a possible overdose, However bound by patient confidentiality the social worker is not allowed to inform the patients doctor.
To an ethical social worker, a person’s rights to well-being may override laws, policies, and arrangements of organizations (Hepworth, Rooney, Strom-Gottfried, & Larsen, 2010, p. 73). Therefore, in this case scenario, although, as an employee of the human service center, I am responsible to put the plan of closing and relocation of the mental hospitals into effect immediately, considering its deficiencies and the potential threats to the tranquil environment of my clients’ community, I may not implement this
There was a lengthy list of human rights that were listed in the Declaration of Human Rights; some rights that are listed in the Declaration are rights such as Article 10, which is the equal right to a fair trial, and Article 26, which is the right to basic education (Arnsperger, 2004). What are Human Rights and Poverty? Human rights are the fundamental rights that human beings should be able to enjoy without any interference. The Declaration of Human rights was established as to be a base for establishing a set of “boundaries”. For example, if someone is arrested and charged with a crime, they can expect to be protected by Article 10, which states that a person who is arrested has equal right to a fair trial (Arnsperger, 2004).
