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.

These factors are known as the Social Determinants of health. “The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age, including the health system” (WHO). Dalgren & Whitehead (1991) image of the social determinants of health aims to show the relationship between the person, their environment and their health. The modifiable factors, people’s age, gender and race lie in the centre surrounded by non modifiable factors like profession, housing, education and public policy. There is a direct relationship between people’s environment and their health, e.g. people who live in damp housing have a higher incidence of respiratory health problems (Farell et al.

EBP requires finding the best available evidence to inform practice, its greatest benefit being the best possible care for a client. Other benefits and limitations will be further discussed below.

Qn2. As a public health practitioner; the ethical theory that suits and most times I will employ in my practice is utilitarianism. In utilitarianism or consequentialists like public health practitioners believes in the common good for the majority of the population regardless of harm that might be caused to a few e.g. a few cases of paralysis realized after a mass vaccination with oral polio vaccine cannot rule out the fact that a million others have been saved from the same exercise and therefore stopping the exercise is neglect of duty.
The Health Belief Model (HBM) is the most common used theory in health education and health promotion ( Glanz, Rimer, & Lewis, 2002; National Cancer Institute (NCI), 2003).The health belief model has been a long established theoretical model that helps to explain people’s behaviours (Nutbeam et al., 2010). The Health Belief Model emphasizes six sets of beliefs: • Perceived Susceptibility • Perceived Severity • Perceived Benefits • Perceived Barriers • Cues to Action • Self-Efficacy STOP SMOKING ISSUES Perceived Susceptibility Personal risk or susceptibility is one of the more powerful perceptions in prompting people to adopt healthier behaviors.

Some cultures or value systems consider this as to be an individual’s ability to fulfill their role in society such as mother, employee, husband etc. The outer state consists of an individual’s physical appearance such as complexion, body cosmopolitan etc.
It is the duty of the manager to ensure targets are set and obtained. Managers can make an impact on the policy by researching and coming up with solutions that best fit the needs of the practice or facility. On the other hand, the systems can also give health care managers direction as to what training may be necessary, as well as what changes will be essential to the growth of the practice. Having health policies helps to define a vision for the future which in turn contributes to establishing targets and points of reference for the short and medium term they also help outline management priorities and the expected roles of different groups while building consensus and informs people (WHO, 2016). Without health policies just like regulations and laws, health care would lack structure, therefore, putting patient’s safety at risk this is why it makes such a huge impact on managers.
