3 Outline how the factors relating to views on death and dying can impact on practice
Medical identity theft happens when someone uses any or all of your personal information, such as your name, social security number, or even insurance number, without your knowledge to obtain medical treatment, equipment, or services. Medical identity theft can be committed by anyone. There are numerous steps you can take to avoid this problem. Make sure your computer is logged out, or that the screen is locked when you step away from your computer. That way any information that is pulled up will no longer be able to be seen on the screen. You should also make it a point to never discuss any patient information within ear shot of another person or patient. If a patient is in need of a copy of their personal records, take all the necessary steps
3 Explain the main differences between communicating with adults and communicating with children and young people
Child welfare policies and initiatives target the care, health and well-being of children. There is no single piece of legislation that covers children’s right, but rather a multitude of laws and guidance that are continually amended, updated and revoked. Most of policies and procedures for Safeguarding and Child Protection are the result of the Children Act 1989.
Gender roles, also known as gender stereotypes, are social and cultural norms on how females and males should conduct themselves within a society. Every culture has certain roles both genders are expected to follow. An example of this in traditional American culture is a man becoming a doctor while a female becomes a nurse or men being the hard workers and women being stay at home mothers. Gender development researchers, similar to other developmental researchers, focus on questions of change over time in gender related subjects (Ruble and Martin 1988). Research suggest that children are socialized to understand gender stereotypes at an early age. In fact, a study done in 2006 by indicated that children before 3 years of age understand concrete
The principle of confidentiality means not passing on personal information about the families, children or colleagues that staff work with. It also means a set of rules or a promise that limits access or places restrictions on certain types of information.
Confidentiality is an ethical value that remains deeply rooted in the nursing profession and has always been the cornerstone of the nurse-patient relationship. Since the days as nursing students, we were constantly reminded of the significance in maintaining patient’s confidentiality.
If I tell you a secret would you keep it to yourself or would you tell someone else? Confidentiality is the act of keeping information you are told secret. This means that the doctors are told information in private, so they need to keep the information confidential. The opposition has two sides: they say that there shouldn't be confidentiality and others say that they shouldn't be able to tell anyone in any situation. It is the legal duty of medical professionals to keep the information they are told confidential, however it is ethical in some situations where the information can be shared if necessary.
Respecting a clients autonomy is key in most counselling approaches. The very ethics of autonomy suggest a client should be granted the right to self-government and have freedom of choice. However the greatest requirement is “respecting the client’s own sense of what will be helpful to them.” (Bond, 2010, p.79; pp.82-83.) However, if the client is a young person of sixteen, have they got the capacity to understand the consequences of receiving a confidential service and the choices relating to the issues under consideration? The counsellor may have the dilemma of deciding what is in this client’s best interest. When a sixteen year old presents with a history of physical abuse their autonomy can be undermined “when the counsellor
The systems theory has different levels. All these levels create a unit that is used to function and work together. A family is considered a system and those interactions with each other and the environment works together to keep the family whole. Through adaptation and interdependence is one of the ways a family works together (Fennel & Weinheld, 1989). Robbins pg.35
Critical theory is the method of inquiry in philosophy that radically questions existing social, political and economic systems. The aim is the total emancipation (empowerment) of each and every human being from all forms of oppression. Critical theorists tend to be philosophers who have been “hurt’’ by the system, or have seen other people ‘’hurt” by the system. Critical theorists believe that all forms of power are oppressive. Some modern critical theorists believe that it is the way we see things that is the cause of our power or powerlessness. The System Theory, the first thing of note is that system theory sees things as wholes. It does not believe that one would understand something better by splitting it up into parts. Modern systems theory is based on the idea that all share the same concepts. (Higgs, 2015)
When working with minors, informed consent is especially important. Client’s have a right to know what parents, probation officers, case managers or any other individuals involved in their case may be informed of. When a client arrives consent forms are completed with the parent or guardian present. With this case, informed consent was imperative due to the involvement of a parent as well as a probation officer. The client and their parent discussed what was appropriate to share, and the client needed to be informed of what the probation officer required. Including; authorization to communicate, clinical supervision agreement, activity consent form, consent to treatment and a client handbook acknowledgement. Also included in the consent forms is a release of information. This was utilized to discuss the probation officer having access to records and many treatment notes (Appendix A). Treatment notes are kept electronically. These treatment notes needed to be printed and physically handed to the probation
I am able to discuss any work related concerns during my supervision as well and discuss my professional development. Staff is able to access courses, workshops and seminars that enhance the knowledge relating to the implementation of safeguarding policies. Weekly staff meetings improve working practice allowing staff to discuss child safeguarding issues. Nevertheless, not everyone in the team holds same level of safeguarding training, especially agency staff or volunteers that come in contact with children and families, creating great risk to their
The strength of this theory is it can be used widely in the society. Structural functional theory can explain most of the social change as a result of changes such as population increasing and increased
