In health and social care, we tend to label individuals without knowing it and the outcome of it can be difficult for individuals to understand. However, labelling can be calling people names which can be offensive to the person and this can be referring to someone as be fat, uneducated, mean and weak. However, labelling people in health and social care setting can affect both the discriminator and the victims in a way that limit communication and appropriate services for the service users. In relation to labelling, if some discriminated against the other, the outcome could be that the individual can end up disrespecting the victim or causing an harm to the victim and the effects is that it can limit the the idea of seeing the real person behind the scene. For example, in a care home if someone refers to an individual of be fat this can be a form of labelling and this can affect the way the individual feels about his or herself.
The evidence presented in this study also suggests that there are many reasons which prevent individuals with learning disabilities accessing effective health care. Further organisational barriers were presented which may impede effective communication between patients and staff. It may be that the need for written forms of communication or the use of poor signage caused issues for these individuals as reduced literacy skills may make it difficult to comprehend these types of communication. Rigid appointment systems may be a barrier to accessing health care if the patient is unable to tell the time or manage their time effectively. Tuffrey goes on to suggest that it is essential that staff have the appropriate attitude and knowledge to treat vulnerable patients and reasonable adjustments need to be made to address some of the barriers preventing this.
Psychological barriers affects how an individual views a particular service. For instance, an individual may be too worried about finding out why they are unwell, to seek professional help. Financial barriers are how much
• Victims may be afraid of getting the caregiver/abuser in trouble. • Victims may be unable to explain what happened because of the nature of their disability. What Makes Reporting Difficult for Caregivers? Taking the step to actually file a report can be difficult for many reasons: • Caregivers may be shocked, angered or embarrassed by what they hear or see. • Caregivers may be hearing information that is very contrary to their own personal standards.
Obstacles to the medical model make the physical and mental disorders as a personal body or mental impairment lead to personal physical and mental function is limited, thereby creating restrictions on participation in social and productive activities. In the medical model view, as the body is the individual and others to develop social interaction and the establishment of social relations media, physical and mental impairment caused by the physical appearance or changes in the internal state. There is a gap between the community and the "normal" body. Therefore,
However if someone was a wheelchair user and they could not get around the shopping centre, this is societies fault because the shopping centre is not adapted to accommodate everyone, whereas the medical model would try “fix” the individual rather than the shopping centre. You need to focus on the persons surrounding’s instead of the persons disability, “By person-centered care I refer speciﬁcally to becoming familiar with the patient’s personal situation in its crucial re-lationship to the source of illness.”, (Caring for Patients: A Critique of the Medical Model, Allen B. Barbour, November 30th 1995, p.1512). These models may be seen as disempowering, and as reinforcing rather than challenging social exclusion. The Medical Model of
In healthcare they may arise from a situation in which a healthcare worker is involved in a complex situation that involves a mental conflict between moral imperatives, in which more than one right or wrong option is presented to the professional, but to act on one will compromise the other. For example, in some cultures it is wrong and frowned upon to tell someone they are dying, and you as a healthcare worker are unsure how to deal with this. You wrestle with the hard decision whether to tell the patient the truth or conceal the patient diagnosis. Not to tell the patient may compromise the patient best interest in his or her care and telling the patient might violate the patient culture
Non-knowledge increasing risk People living in poor countries often deal with poor education affecting their knowledge, which makes them vulnerable. Several health organizations, such as the Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières, have been experiencing threats from local people who believe that they are the ones who brought the disease. These locals are actually driving away the ones that offer help. Even though it is understandable, because they see people entering a health care facility, and coming out of it dead, this local distrust is an example of how people’s lack of knowledge can have an impact on their risk and vulnerability. Another example, in which non-knowledge is affecting the risk of getting infected with the Ebola virus, are
Socially constructed identities are utilized to identify who we are and to oppress individuals, especially if they do not conform to those identities or are coming from an intersecting identity. Sometimes on the journey to establish identity and sense of self battles are faced in terms of oppression, acceptance, and silence. All of these variables, in accordance with intersectionality, can make it very difficult for someone to identify themselves or for others to identify them. When an individual comes from an intersecting identity, just like in Zami and Redefining Realness, they often are searching for acceptance and struggle with silence as the origin of their oppression is not as apparent if that intersectionality was not present or as potent.
Soiled clothing and footwear impacted on their self-esteem, and appearance, leading to anxiety about being judged by other people. Participants also found efforts being made to elucidate the problem had a poor outcome. Jones JE et al (2008) on reviewing the effects of smell and exudate from ulcers found that everyday life was affected. Emerging from the study (which used a hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale) (HADS three aspects around the odour were recognised. The psychological reaction to odour, the anxiety felt as a result of the restriction on the participant’s social life, in case the smell might be noticed well as being concerns how nurses will manage the odour.
The safety of the employees and clients is the number one protocol. Some of the ethical dilemmas include discrimination, racism and deception just to name a few. Some clinical workers may have to break the ethical code of conduct by falsifying information, withholding information, give misleading information just to gain important information needed from their client. Not only is the social workers ethical code of conduct an issue but it also conflicts with the law, workplace regulation and polices hindering the full capability of the social worker duty to keep clients information confidential. This includes sharing client’s information with co- workers or to those outside of the workplace.
Psychological Impact of Crohn’s Disease It is important to understand that Crohn’s disease and other forms of IBD can be emotionally distressing for patients. There is a social stigma associated with “bathroom issues” that can be difficult to overcome, particularly for the young. Unwillingness to discuss these issues can lead to avoidance of treatment or feelings of
I agree with this, self-control is necessary in order to put priorities over wants. Alena Hall writes this in her article, “A lack of self-control causes procrastinators to have problems when it comes to finishing tasks -- even some of the most simple and basic ones” (Hall, 2014). I would even say that the lack of self-control is the cause of procrastination in many cases. However if a person doesn 't feel adequately equipped for a job, or if they are scared of failure, the same results may ensue. Likewise, part of my struggle with procrastination is because I’m a perfectionist.
In addition, vague policy mandates can be a disadvantage to public administrators because vague policies can lead to different interpretations of a policy and allow room for confusion and tension to arise among people in achieving a desire goal. According to Feldman, the presence of ‘‘many possible ways of perceiving’’ means that there are ‘‘competing interpretations’’ ( Feldman,1989, 7). Therefore, an organizational goal loses clear understanding, and eventually becomes inconclusive and unproductive when it
