For example, an individual I care for with learning disabilities and epilepsy made a phone call to the organisation I work in around 10pm and informed me that she was going out, as it is her right to chose when and where she goes I could not tell her she could not do so, instead I asked where she was going, she informed me she was going to a party at a friends house, I then tried to obtain information about where her friends
As the leader of the group the counselor will use the intake appointment to meet with the participant individually and talk about the group structure. Once the counselor has met with the participant, the participant will answer some screening questions. After the participant has completed the screening questions the counselor will have an interview with the participant. The counselor will get additional information or clarification based on the screening questions. The counselor will then advise the participant that she will call the participant to inform them if they will be part of the group.
I will be assigned to a new patient next week, and I will make sure that I will know everything about all the medications the patient takes. That will be done in order to know what I am going to be administering and how dangerous it will be if any of them are administered incorrectly. I will make sure all preventable complications will not occur. In order to do that, I need to know the function of the medication and what they are really for based on the patient’s diagnoses.
At the meet last night, Bella wasn 't feeling well and I kept her home from school today due to symptoms of stomach flu. It 's looking as though she will miss school again tomorrow, so she will also miss practice. If the symptoms subside and she starts to feel better she will be there.
Lee, regarding about challenges in changes processes, as nurse leaders, we need to think outside our own silos, research how others are doing it and maybe change it and apply it to our needs. This is very similar to my topic of reverse innovation, which is getting ideas from the poor and applying it to the more developed economies (DePasse & Lee, 2013).

Risk is a part of daily life, but our attitudes and approaches to risk vary depending on a range of factors such as context, time, situation, previous experience, etc. To assess different situation, we will use different approach as well as if we are considering risk that we are taking in personal life or risks that service user are taking in theirs. The risk assessment process is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork; it is about identifying and taking sensible and proportionate measures to control the risks.
4.6- It is accepted that practitioners in health and social care settings can be affected by the stressful nature of the work. (Godden 2012) When discussing challenging situations with supervisees we need to ensure they feel supported and have received the necessary training such as DMI and have completed their induction. Ensure they understand they have to adhere to the behaviour management programs and relevant risk assessments. If a specific incident has occurred reflect with them the effects of events and consequences and actions that occurred, using the records of incidents, A B Cs and tick charts for reference if needed. Help them to understand how they might have caused and influenced events and work out the most effective way to handle
The S.W must acknowledge that Ashley at her age experiences new sensations and feelings. She might place a great importance on what other people may think of her. That's why she might be reluctant and hesitant in disclosing certain aspects about her existing situation. We don't know if Ashley discussed her concerns with her mum or other family members, so she needs to be approached sensitively , as she might feel ashamed. She might be afraid that she might be disbelieved by Jackie or her extended family, therefore there is a risk of emotional abuse that might arise as a consequence of her disclosure. The social worker must act with empathy which plays a crucial role. It is highly important for the S.W to be able to establish a positive environment that could encourage Ashley to provide key information that can contribute to the interview's quality.

The relationship is influenced by two major categories of factors: (1) environmental factors that may influence client behaviour; and (2) organizational factors that may influence care providers behaviour. Both types of factors may influence the behaviour of the healthcare team, just as the healthcare team may effect changes in them. Educational activities, documentation and follow-up may lead managers to seek to reduce the number and duration of seclusion episodes Larue, C. et al
The complainant was a 28-year-old woman who was suffering from a mental disorder, had an IQ less than 75 and had been abusing the use of alcohol. On the day of the offence, the complainant left a community mental health team resource centre, after being interviewed by a psychiatrist, in a distressed and agitated state. Upon leaving the centre, she met the defendant and told him about her current situation which he then offered to help. She followed him to his friend’s house where she was drugged and where the sexual activity had taken place. When she was in the bathroom, the defendant entered and requested oral sex, which she subsequently obeyed. There was apparent consent, however, the issue here was whether the consent was a valid one.
Dependency is one of the major factors that I believe will cause the divide between older patents and their caregivers. As professional health care workers, we need to be able to over look this and be able to provide the same expert care across all demographics of patients we encounter. To provide care we must be able to assess the patient accordingly without bias. Nurses should be able to evaluate the physiological, cognitive, and psychosocial health of the patient as well as their level of functionality and strength to determine if the patient is independent or dependent. As we provide care for this age group, we need to be able to be able to understand what happens during the aging process and normal age related changes.
