A breach of confidentiality could be detrimental to a person financially and socially. When concerning epidemiology this risk is exponential dealing with entire communities. A community must have trust with the health care field, so that they know the most current recommendations do not have ulterior motives. Maintaining confidentiality is done in many ways. When using information for studies there are ways to have information presented within the study to protect individual’s confidentiality.
Interprofessional practice is a practice that healthcare workers use to rely on. Interprofessional practice explains the difference between a high and low level of service to the patient. This can lead towards a negative and positive effect on a patient as well as their loved ones such as their family.

Within services like White Meadows a person centred approach is about planning and delivering care and support with the input of the service user, by doing this the rights of the service user are being adhered too and they are being treated equally. In conclusion, organisational culture can have a severe impact on the quality of care given to service users, and in this case the impact was not good for those who seemed to need more support in development. But by the senior manager instigating change with the help of HIQA guidelines and PCP, care can be improved and developed in a way that there is a feeling of inclusion and individual support, where all service users are treated equally.

MBSR also reduced trait anxiety and ruminative thinking and increased self compassion and empathy. Another study was conducted by Grossman, P., Niemann, L., Schmidt, S., & Walach, H. (2004) to see if mindfulness really does help reduce negativity and improve vitality as well as coping mechanism of a person.

(2008), conducted a study to see the relation of mindfulness with interpersonal performance and feelings. The results showed a positive association between mindfulness and interpersonal skills.
As its evident that person centeredness is valued by the person, encouraging it in practise is important. The aim of the framework of McCormack’s model of person centred care is to raise awareness of the importance of respect for the individual. It does this well by empowering healthcare workers to recognise key components in their practise. It has also been used as a systematic framework to initiate significance from practise- derived data that can advise the expansion of person centred practise. McCormack’s model can be used as a tool to aid practitioners to recognise obstacles that can demote the developments of person centred care in their
I chose this competency because it teaches me that I need to have a positive self-esteem and a great attitude towards my patients, colleagues and every situation in order to be able to provide holistic quality care. 2. The article taught me that fitness to practice, includes being accountable and responsible to cope with stress and know how to balance your duty to care for patients; and an equal duty to ensure that fitness to practice competently does not threaten the safety of patients, co-workers or oneself (p. 8). 3. The article widened my understanding that if I am not mentally or physically fit; it’s impossible for me to care for another and meet their needs and can put patients in danger due to errors.
If you do not actively follow the 5 care principles and actively promote anti discrimination. Health and social care professionals will then be drawn into the discrimination. Health and social care professionals need to discuss this with their manager or another person that they trust within the work setting. This is if the health and care professional does not feel that they, themselves cannot challenge the discrimination. Reporting also helps support it as this is challenging the anti discriminatory practice.
Improving Patient Safety Patient safety is a critical component when it comes to providing health care to all individuals. It is the freedom from additional harm or injury caused by preventable mistakes. Furthermore, when it comes to our elder’s senior adults, patient safety should be number one. They require more protection from any form of medical errors or additional harm that may jeopardize their safety. Research has shown that if the basis moral standards were applied then patient safety would significantly improve, (Sandars, & Cook., 2009).
Communication about patient safety can be categorized into: prevention of errors and responding to effects caused by errors (adverse effects). The use of effective communication techniques amongst health care team can help in the prevention of errors, whereas ineffective communication contributes immensely to its occurrence. If ineffective communication contributes to an unfavourable event, then better effective communication skill must be applied to achieve the most favourable or optimum patient safety. There are different approaches and techniques in which healthcare personnel can work to improve patient safety and they include both verbal and the nonverbal communication as well as effective use of appropriate communication technologies. Bramhall (2014) highlights that common barriers to effective communication for patient include environmental such as noise, lack of privacy and control, fear and anxiety, inability to explain feelings and exerting oneself to appear strong whereas healthcare professional barriers include lack of time and support, staff conflict, lack of skills to adequately cope with patient’s questions and overwhelming
