For this task I have been asked to describe how anti-discriminatory practise is promoted in health and social care settings, this meaning action taken to prevent discrimination against people on the grounds of race, class, gender, disability etc. anti-discrimination practise promotes equality by introducing anti-discrimination policies in the work place. It is important that health care workers promote equality, value diversity and respect the rights of service users always putting the service user at the heart of the service provision. This meaning that the service user’s individual needs will be meet and achieved . Care workers, also need to have an understanding of what it would be like to use the services, with this all the service
Using Pender's Health Promotion Theory is a great way to implement education in the care of patients. Education, treatment and prevention of diseases and/or their co-morbidities are the foundations of nursing practice. The current standards are encouraging education and prevention as a means to save money individually by the patient, by the hospitals, by the state, and nationally. With health care reform at the forefront of everyone's mind prevention and health promotion is of the utmost importance. References American Heart Association Website.
Each of these principles directly relates to the need for a naturopath to collect in-depth information from patients in the initial consultation. The role of a naturopath is to support each patient in their journey toward better health by identifying obstacles to recovery and removing any disturbing factors to allow the Vis Medicatrix Naturae to restore vitalism. The more information gathered in the initial consultation the easier it is to identify the possible underlying causes of a patient’s ill health. This enables the naturopath to make the correct recommendations for healthier lifestyle habits to give the body the right environment and conditions to restore homeostasis. The principle Primum Non Nocere teaches the use of the least invasive methods necessary to allow the body to heal itself.

• Physical environment – safe water and clean air, healthy workplaces, safe houses, communities and roads all contribute to good health. Employment and working conditions – people in employment are healthier, particularly those who have more control over their working conditions • Social support networks – greater support from families, friends and communities is linked to better health. Culture - customs and traditions, and the beliefs of the family and community all affect health. • Genetics - inheritance plays a part in determining lifespan, healthiness and the likelihood of developing certain illnesses. Personal behavior and coping skills – balanced eating, keeping active, smoking, drinking, and how we deal with life’s stresses and challenges all affect health.
I believe deliberate role modeling, teaching, and coaching by health leaders would be one of the best mechanism that can be used within my organization. One of the characteristics of organizational culture is the emphasis on people. I strongly believed that companies that place a high value on this characteristic of organizational culture plays a great deal of importance on how health leaders’ decision will affect the staff in the organization. However, changing an organizations’ culture is one of the most difficult leadership challenges. As stated by Morrison, health leaders should be cognizant of the challenges as they work to positively change the culture of their health organizations, the culture of the health industry, and the expectations of the nation as a whole.
Counseling is a wellness-oriented, strengths-based approach to optimizing human growth and development and counselors are thoroughly trained in a positive, holistic philosophy allowing them to act as advocates for optimum health and wellness in society. Counseling is set apart from other professions focused on care because of its developmental, prevention, and wellness orientation towards helping (McAulife & Eriksen, 1999). Wellness refers to the maximizing of human potential through positive life style choices and offers a philosophical base for counseling and development that provides guidelines for intervention and at the same time emphasizes the uniqueness to counseling and development professionals in dealing with mental health concerns.
