Task 2 7 / C.P6: Compare the influence of different health and safety laws or policies on health and social care practice in a selected setting There are several different health and safety laws and policies that vary between settings in health and social care aimed towards different legislations that must be followed, and have resulted in improvements in health and social care practice. It is important that these legislations are followed by service providers in order for them to promote safe practice and to fully understand their responsibilities under these legislations. Some of the legislations include the Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974, the Data Protection Act 1998, the Care Act 2014, the Care Standards Act 2000 and the Equality Act 2010. The Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974 aims to ensure the health, safety and welfare to all individuals in the workplace and reducing the risk of accidents, illness, injuries and malpractice. This can include the administration, handling, storage and record of dangerous substances and the training of staff in these areas as well as in handling safety equipment to ensure health and safety.
Conclusion A system developed using case-based reasoning would be able to provide more comprehensive solutions for users because it has access to knowledge acquired from a vast number of past cases. Clinicians must consider large amounts of information when searching for solutions and a case-based system is able to acknowledge the complex relationships between that data and examine how all of that information has worked when combined together before. The system would enable quick analysis and the use of knowledge acquired by many other clinicians from other healthcare
It focuses on the number of people exposed, and the potential for spread within the community to enable implementation of appropriate actions to prevent additional cases or recurrences of the disease. (Brownson, 2011) Application - Epidemiology provides useful scientific basis for prevention of diseases and injury and the promotion of health. (Soph.uab.edu, 2016) Roles of epidemiology Epidemiology is considered a tool for collecting data that enable public health surveillance, disease investigation, analytic studies and program evaluation. Public Health Surveillance Public health surveillance is essential for rapid detection investigation and identification of disease outbreaks. The common source of surveillance data is reports of disease cases received from health-care providers and from communities.
Identification of Concepts/Theories 1. Concepts • Public Health Management can defined as set of activities which are planning (very important) and decision making, organizing (continous) ,leading and controlling that are directed at an organization resources such as human, financial, physical and information. This concept of management helps us understand the structure and operations of the health system and provide an opportunity to manage the complex nature of the health systems and rationale for quality management of the needed resources. • The concept of strategic management which is a set of managerial decisions and actions that determines the long-run performance of an organization such as FHI360 etc which includes internal and external environment scanning; strategy formulation, strategy implementation and ;evaluation and control. The concept helps to
Organizations must analyze internal and external patient information to more accurately measure risk and outcomes. At the same time, many clients are working to increase data transparency to produce new insight knowledge. Praveen Kumar et al , in their work proposed that Hadoop is based on Map Reduction is a powerful tool manages the huge amount of data. With this echo system can use fault tolerant techniques. Emad A Mohammed et al , in their work big clinical data analytics would emphasize modelling of whole interacting processes in clinical settings and clinical datasets can be evolution of ultra-large-scale datasets.
Abstract-: Image Stitching or mosaicing is an important aspect of research in the field of computer vision. It involves various techniques of joining images together to form a mosaic of high resolution. Stitching images generally require complete overlap in order to generate high resolution panoramas. As these panoramas become increasingly popular, there arises a need for the software to create mosaics. These mosaics are used for variety of applications like in digital maps and satellite photos.
Leadership and governance (Governance and Health Care Financing) • To strengthen leadership and governance systems, in order to ensure highest standards of transparency and accountability at all levels. (National Health Strategic Plan 2006-10), (National Health Strategic Plan 2011-14) c) Explain how the four approaches of Public health could be used to attain the objectives outlined in b). Public health is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through organized efforts of society - The Acheson Report (1988) Therefore, the public health approach principles provide a useful framework for investigating and understanding the causes and effects of Health related conditions and for planning there mitigation interventions through primary prevention programmes, policy interventions and advocacy. This public health approach to prevention seeks to improve the health and safety of all individuals by addressing underlying risk factors that increase the likelihood that an individual will become vulnerable to these health conditions. The approach consists of four steps: 1.
