Not only is the setting free of discrimination but equality and fair treatment to everyone is promoted. It is very important within health and social care because the service users will often be vulnerable meaning they are more likely to be a victim of discrimination and affect them a lot worse in comparison to those who are not vulnerable. Not only is it their vulnerability that puts them at more risk of harm and abuse but also because they are putting their lives and care in the hands of others and are trusting them to provide a good standard of service to help them. This is about making your care setting completely equal and giving everyone fair treatment. It includes making sure discrimination doesn’t happen but also promoting anti-discrimination.

* 1.2 Lack of communication in the workplace can result in relationships being strained and unfulfilled, it is very important that there is good communication between all members of staff as this ensures things run well and mistakes are not made and things are not overlooked. It also enables us to work effectively with each other. * 2.1/2.2/2.3/2.4 Reading care plans is always a good start when establishing the individual’s communication needs and preferences, if the service user is new to your home then either ask the previous carers or the service users friends and family as they are likely to know and can pass this information to you, this also enables you to put this information in your own care plans for the individual. If the service user is not new to the home but you are, ask other staff how they communicate with them. When promoting effective communication you should ensure that you have all the information on how the individual prefers to communicate, and to be very aware of the environment, ensure there are no distractions, for you or the service user.
Overall, I learned it’s not easy to be a psychologist. “This line of work can take a toll on you mentally. You think and think about how you want to help a patient out, yet you really can’t get an advice on how to someone directly.” Says Sopchak as we talked in one session. “Yet the satisfaction you get out of the job is thrilling.

Good medical care is based on effective communication from the health care providers to the patients and his or her families. If a providers communication is ineffective it can cause improper medical services such as the wrong treatment or diagnosis. It is always good for the medical team to be on the same accord because it ensures that the patients will not receive different information which causes confusion, it is all about understanding the concept of
The most important and useful thing I have learn is how to be an active listener. I have found that by truly listening to an individual is sometimes the only way into that persons mind and the only way to build trust.

When you are an active listener your body language dose all the talking for you, and when you actively listen to someone that could be all they really need, the caring ear of another goes a long way in the healing
