It is important we work in this way in order to promote individuality, this allow individuals to make informed decisions and choices, as well as understand the consequences as well as possible risks of such decisions and choice that may well relate to their own health and wellbeing. We must do this within the appreciation of rights within the care value base. We can uphold this by empowering individuals to maintain their own independence. Each individual should have the right to privacy which encourages that person to maintain dignity and self-respect. Whilst respecting the individuals diversity cultures and values.
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.
A person’s values will include their individuality, rights, choices, privacy, independence, dignity and respect. 1.3 Eplain how person-centred values should influence all aspects of social care work. Health and social care should be based on person-centred values, and should be individualised as this is a requirement by law (Human Rights Act 1998, Health and Social care Act 2012, Codes of practice for Social Care Workers, etc). 2. Understand how to implement a person-centred approach in an adult social care setting.
Person-centred values must influence all aspects of social care as it is embedded in social policy and legislation. Putting putting people first and valuing them also the essential standaards. It should respect the rights of everyone and to be at the centre of their each personal care plan. All care workers should focus on the individual persons wants and how to provided. 2.
Outcome 1 - Understand the application of person centred care approaches in health and social care 1.1 person centred values must influence all aspects of health and social care work because Person-centered is about providing care and support that is centered or focused on the individual and their needs. We are all individual and just because two people might have the same medical condition, for example, Dementia and learning disabilities, it doesn’t mean that they require the same care and support. Developing a clear understanding about the individuals we are working with. Will help carers understand their needs, their culture, their means of communication, their likes and dislikes, their family and other professionals’ involvement so we can promote and provide person centered care and support. Person-centered values provide a foundation on which we can base and build our practice.
This could be from themselves or others so all tasks needs to be assessed prior to undertaking them to ensure the risks are reduced to the minimum level and that they receive the appropriate level of support. Aiii The duty of care is a guideline that is held within the care setting to ensure the care staff are aware of their responsibilities and know what is expected of them whilst they are promoting the well being of the individuals being supported. These guidelines are in place to protect individuals within the care setting whether it is a person living within the care setting or the support staff working within the organisation. Aiv Duty of care contributes to the safeguarding of individuals because it sets out the standards required to provide appropriate levels of care within the setting so that no harm comes to either the individual living within the setting or the staff supporting them e.g. complaints or accusations.
1.2 evaluate the use of care plans in applying person centred values; Care plans are the main source of tenant information, we can make these plans with requirements to suit specific needs and wishes of the individual. The better the care plan the easier it becomes to assist the tenant in their own way without getting into a mess from not understanding them. OUTCOME 2 - BE ABLE TO WORK IN A PERSON CENTERED WAY 2.1 work with the individual and others to find out the individuals history, preferences, wishes and needs; Depending if the individual is able to communicate in some way we can sit and talk to them and ask them their preferences and how they would like to receive their care, family can also be used for this as they may be able to provide more information than the tenant. If there is no communication in any way and no family then there would have to be meetings to discuss the care that the individual may need. Care plans should also have all the information we need about history and preferences.
It is about valuing variety and individual differences and creating a culture, environment and practices which respect and value differences for the benefit of society, organisations and individuals. The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. Staff that work in care settings must value diversity, and not give favourable treatment to certain groups of people at the expense of those whom they hold prejudice. Understanding equality and diversity is vital if we want to deliver person centred, safe and effective care. Delivering on equality and diversity in health and social care services means that we are tackling barriers that could prevent some groups of people from accessing
