Introduction In this assignment I will explore a clinical experience where dignity was maintained and reflect on my practice. It is important to reflect in both personal and professional development. Reflection will allow me to recognise both good and bad practice and how I can improve as a person as well as professionally.

Dignity refers to the condition of deserving honor while respect relates to a profound admiration for someone, which is evoked by his/her attributes or success. In the health care setting, the greatest levels of dignity and respect are attained when the treatment of patients is done in a distinct approach without considering their backgrounds/issues at hand; and more so by tailoring it to cater for specific needs. The take should also be autonomous, letting persons have their privacy whenever they need it. A more prevalent case of this ideal can be seen when health facilities build same sex accommodation.
Confidentiality, This is where what happens in the workplace weather it is good or weather it's bad you don't talk about it around people that don't need to know. Such as if service user a urinated in the bed, you don't tell people that don't need to know you only tell someone such as the manger and sort it out before anyone can talk. This is important in the workplace because it makes the services users more comfortable and they feel safe and make sure no one is talking about each other away from the workplace. So for example when the person urinated in the bed and the care worker told someone outside the workplace that is a bad use of confidentiality and dignity as the person may of felt embarrassed and this means everyone will find out and they could laugh at the person. This also could of meant the person lost their dignity and self esteem.

Demonstrating ‘respect for patients’ values, preferences and expressed needs,’ is one of the eight dimensions of person centred care outlined by the Picker Institute (ref). Morgan and Yoder (2012) described ‘respectful care’ as being an attribute of person centred and while the author does not disagree with this idea of ‘respectful care’ being inherent to person centred care, the author believes that Slater (2006) more accurately describes dignity and respect as being antecedents of person centred care. These antecedents drive respect of personal values, individual needs and decisions, a consequence of which is an improved therapeutic relationship and health outcomes. The author considers this view of dignity, compassion and respect as antecedents
