Choice is not only for people who can speak for themselves. People with some disabilities or disease have to have their choices as well. We will need to develop our observation skills to discover the ways in which people we support express their preferences. Over time we will be able to build up a more detailed understanding of how they communicate their likes and dislikes. We can then use this information to involve the person in making more choices.
It is imperative for case managers to use intervention practices that will prevent risks, reduce the negative behavior, and promote productivity and success. Intervention practices are included in case management plans because they serve as actions to improve life situations. The concept with helping clients in the criminal justice is complex because each person is different and unique, so therefore, the treatment and services have to be different to promote success. In order for clients to change their behavior, they must change their way of thinking. References Freeman, D. W. 2001.
Understand health and safety in the social care settings Learning outcomes and assessment criteria Outcome 2 understanding risk assessments and their importance in relation to health and safety. 2.1 Explain why it is important to assess health and safety risks. It is important to assess health and safety risks, as if you don't assess them, you will not be able to reduce or eliminate any risks that occur. This will result in putting you, your colleagues and your service users as risk and will increase the chance of unnecessary injuries occurring. Outcome 11: safety, availability and suitability of equipment Regulation 16 - (1) the registered person must make suitable arrangement to protect service users and others who may
Equality, Diversity and Rights - Unit 2 M2 - Assess the influence of a recent national policy initiative promoting anti - discriminatory practice. Anti discriminatory practice is the main method used to combat discrimination. It is action taken to prevent discrimination on the grounds of age, race, class, gender, disability etc and it also takes into account how individuals behave towards other each other. It is very important for all employees in health and social care settings to use and promote anti discriminatory practice in the workplace and in their everyday work. This will help reduce prejudice, eradicate discrimination and promote equality for service users and for staff.
Through this process it should provide automatic evidence for the rigor of external evaluation of the partners outlined above. “the core principles of good assessment and quality assurance ……… underpinning both effective learning and the demonstration of competence” ( p xiii Foreword Rob Wye – Chief Executive Learning and Skills Improvement Service). Effective internal verification is an on-going process. It allows good practice to be shared, and can help identify problems at an early stage. Internal Quality Assurance upholds the credibility of any assessment or qualification the organisation delivers.
Good care starts with providers and their staff, it relies on effective commissioning and safeguarding procedures, and is informed by the views of people who use services and their families. We must all work better to ensure people are protected from abuse. We cannot guarantee that abuse like that uncovered in Winterbourne View will never take place, but we now have more people and better systems and new ways of working that make us much stronger. In addition, we were able to recruit an extra 229 inspectors so that we can check services more frequently. We have already done a lot to make sure we spot poor care and abuse in the future.
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.
This includes support for everyday living. For example, bathing, dressing, personal hygiene and general domestic task. When I am carrying out all these, I do remember person centred values and this helps me to be able to do what is right for the client or what the client wants. Before carrying any activities for the day, I do go through my clients care plan; follow the team meetings to get all the information about the clients and the changes. For example if I have arranged with my client that he or she had to have a shower, then when the time comes they change their mind, it is for me to agree with them because it’s their right to change their mind.
This helps to prevent physical and emotional abuse as there are many services and procedures in place to protect and to make sure each individual rights are met and equal to everyone else’s. Also by having the no secrets guidance will help to make sure that each case that is dealt with, gets the right sort of evidence to help keep the vulnerable adult safe and make sure that it won’t happen to them again and to be able to help them after the trauma of being physically or emotionally abused. This would help as all agencies work together to help the adult get better and get the correct type of treatment for the individuals situation. Also this guidance helps to make sure each agency is honest in what they are saying and not hiding any information, so that there is trust within the system to be able to help each vulnerable adult that may be getting abused. So if a professional has seen or heard a colleague abusing an individual in some way, which would then have to be reported straight away to the person who is in charge, who would be the most reliable person and able to help this vulnerable adult.
Instead of staying in a darkened room, the commanders should be training their officers on how to combat this action and help actual reduce the crimes not cover them up. They need to make sure that officers know the importance of CompStat and how it benefits their department. CompStat can be a great tool, but it must be implemented and used correctly and information cannot be falsified to give data that is wanted. If the information is correct than it can help us ensure that our police department are working to actually reduce crime not just to make their department look good. This information can be used for many different reasons and if individuals knew that police departments were doing everything in their power to actually reduce crimes some areas would not be so scary to live in or
