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.
Working with numerous working agency is very essential for the protection of vulnerable adult abuse which is not possible by one agency. For enhancement in profession relating to the care of vulnerable protection from abuse local authority have to monitor it very closely with appropriate application of legislation. Organisations of Care have to be ensured about the adequate skill of their worker before going to the service. If it is not maintained there is possible to be occurred e.g. Victoria climbie and Baby p. They died in their premature age only the cause was that the care worker was not enough
Hi Tiffany, There are so many innovative ways we can use technology to better our experiences as educators. We can use technology to support diversity among many methods in which can be used. I love observing my students exploring with technology with many learning subjects. This experience helps them to become better communicators and problem solvers. Thank you Tiffany I wish you the best of your endeavors.
They may have a lack of confidence in their ability to adapt to new technologies, or may perceive the change as a threat. Some nurses have adopted a short cut process of administering medication to save time, which is pre-pouring medications. Workaround is another big barrier which occurs when nurses pass the medication without scanning the medication and the patient’s identification (ID) band, to save time and scan them later. Which is dangerous, and a high risk for making an error. The change agent or the nurse leader will need to use the driving forces that will help the project to be successful.
This can be achieved by scheduling days for company outings, which gets everyone in a more friendly environment where they can relax and be themselves. By doing this, you can interact with people on a more personal level, and get to know them better. As everyone knows, you are typically a different person outside of work compared to your demeanor while on the clock. This act of getting your employees in a less stressful environment, gives them the opportunity to open up to one another and learn about each other. When you know someone on a personal level, you can better understand what makes them tick, as well as what rattles their cage.
These mentors must be chosen with the care that they are experienced and they must embrace the role of a mentor relationship. A mentor who does not want to be one can cause more harm than good. The mixture of parent and friend that takes a personal stake in the development of the new nurse in the environment is vital (Grossman & Valiga, 2013). If the mentor does not play an active interest in the role and is not personally vested, it will not work.
This approach tries to get the maximum benefit of one’s welfare or good for everyone in society or hospital division. In addition, an approach that brings happiness and good to one individual may affect the wellbeing of another person. Thus, nurses must prioritize their care based on utilitarian judgments to decide which need is greater, or which situation is more serious (Alpers & Hanssen, 2010). For the purpose of this study, a dilemma regarding a pregnant Jehovah’s Witness was selected, because she refused a blood transfusion to potentially save her life due to religious beliefs.
This essay aims to identify and evaluate the inequalities in health care in different areas of society, namely disability and gender. Firstly, it is important to understand what we mean by health inequalities. It is commonly understood that health inequality refers to unjust differences in the health status, usually preventable, between different groups, populations or individuals. The existence of such inequalities is attributed to the unequal distributions of social, environmental and economic conditions within societies. Such conditions determine the risk of individuals getting ill, their ability to prevent sickness, as well as opportunities to access to the right treatments.
My clinical practice setting is in various acute care settings at a large teaching hospital in Toronto, where I am part of a nursing resource team. Most of my clinical experience is with oncology patient populations. This week, I was able to interview a family that I have cared for a couple of days as we have created a family-nurse therapeutic relationship, during that time I felt that they would be willing to proceed with the discussion of their illness experience. The patient was a sixty-five year old female woman; her admitting diagnosis is metastasised lung cancer with a poor prognosis, along with dementia as of a month ago. She is widowed for five years, her deceased husband passed away from congestive heart failure.
Martin et al. (2006) in their study noted that some personal factors that reduced confidence in clinicians were due to inexperience with physical restraint, and a lack of knowledge of aggression. Nurses require good assessment skill to manage or prevent aggression and this skill can be acquired by having hands on training by experienced specialist. The nurse has to be aware of the triggers of aggression and moreover be able to recognise early signs of aggression. Of equal importance, developing a better understanding of the causes of aggression might lead to more effective treatment and preventive strategies (Shub, Ball, Abbas, Gottumukkala & Kunik, 2010).
Davy et al., 2015 argues that it is not beneficial for dementia and mental illness. CCM has six elements and studies have shown that it is difficult to distinguish which component of this model may have more benefit and insufficient evidences of how the health care system can organize high quality of care to deliver to individuals (Healey et al., 2015). Coulter, Roberts & Dixon (2013) identified that National Health Service England has adapted House of Care Model (HOCM) for LTCs to reduce mortality and morbidity and to deliver high quality of person centered care. This model is for patients who are having one or more conditions. The patient is supported by different services and through collaborative care plan so that individuals can’t be confused
Correct me if I am wrong but I do not think this has anything to do with going from say 1371 to 1391. This has all to do with this script control feature on older clients vs newer clients. Older servers will not support script control because this is a new feature. Older clients will receive the script control policy and throw it away because it does not know about this new feature. When the client auto-updates to a newer build that supports script control it needs a refresh of that policy to enable it.
P4- when looking at strategies and communication techniques used with different individuals with different needs whom need to overcome different challenges many aspects must be looked at. A challenge Patrick may face may be awareness and knowledge, he may face this as well as others. Patrick may be aware that he has HIV however he may not be aware how much this will effect him and he may not be aware how to deal with it as he may lack the knowledge. In order to overcome this Patrick could educate himself in depth on HIV, this will help him come to terms with it and will also help him to help others understand HIV. A challenge Alice may face might be acceptance or belief, she may not have the determination to become alcohol free and therefore
