Task 1
Communication is an important skill to know. It allows you to express yourself, converse with others, and learning. With different people comes different preferred communication. This can depend on where they are from, if they have any disabilities, their profession, or their age. In Health and Social care, different communication will be used in different settings (care homes, hospitals etc.)
When talking one-to-one with somebody, it works in a three-stage process. This is greeting, conversation and then farewells. When doing one-to-one, gestures, facial expressions and body language would be used more because they’re being watched more than if they’re in a group, for example. Both parties want to feel relaxed, so a calming tone would be used. If not, it could feel like an awkward conversation between both the people. In a Health and Social context, one-to-one communication may be used if a doctor is talking to a patent alone, because their medical history is to remain private and confidential. A formal tone would be used in this situation as the conversation topic is a serious matter, and because the doctor has higher status than the patient.
This would only work if the patient was a speaker of the same language as the doctor, and if they had good hearing. If the patient had a disability that affected their hearing and their way of communication, the doctor may use Makaton. This is a mixture of signs, symbols and speech that help people develop their communication skills. If the patient was completely deaf, British Sign Language would be used. This is only signs and symbols, but sometimes speech could be used in the patient is able to lip read. These would be the only effective methods of communication because the patients have no other way of understanding, so this is the only way they would be able to understand. If the patient is not the…...

Formal strengths and weaknesses the strengths of formal communication are that it can be easily understood by most people. The weaknesses of formal communication are someone who doesn’t speak the same language as you may not understand what you are saying even though it’s formal. Informal is mostly used when we are around people in our private life or family and friends life. Everybody speaks informally different from one and other. Somebody from southern England could say something like ‘Hiya mate how’s it goin’ this shows that people have different forms of informal communication because not everybody talks like that to their family and friends. Informal strengths and weaknesses the strengths of informal communication is that teenagers that prefer informal communication can learn better.

Diabetes and Age Health and Social Care Level 3

...There are different patterns and trends in health and illness among many social groupings I have been asked by my employer to investigate these patterns and trends to determine whether a new, larger healthcare centre is needed for the local area. I am going to be examining diabetes within different age groups. The age groups I will be looking at will be: * 0 - 4 years * 10 - 14 years * 16 - 34 years * 75+ years It is estimated that there is more than one in twenty people that suffer from diabetes within the UK, both diagnosed and undiagnosed. “There are 2.9 million people who have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK (2011). By 2025, it is estimated that five million people will have diabetes in the UK” (Diabetes UK). During my research I found statistics that showed the prevalence of diabetes in the UK. (The table below created by me using data from Diabetes.org). Age | Men | Women | 16 – 34 years | 1.8% | 2.1% | 75+ years | 15.9% | 13.2% | Age | Percentage of Type 1 | Percentage of Type 2 | Percentage of other | 0 – 4 years | 4% | 0% | 9.7% | 10 – 14 years | 42.5% | 39.1% | 35.6% | The Bio-medical model believes that “illness occurs naturally and independently of social behaviour or social influence” (Rasheed, E., Heatherington, A., Irvine, J. 2010.). This model focuses on science and reason over religion and superstitions their view on diabetes would be that, the individual regardless age should seek profession medical help were they can......

Task C for Health and Social Care a Level

...Task C In this task I am going to explore all of the possible barriers which may make communication ineffective. Barriers are factors which slow down the process of communication of any kind. Possible features of barriers that could occur are environmental; sensory; cultural; gender and age differences; ignoring others body language. Practices such as offloading and imposing own views; shyness; aggressiveness; lack of self-awareness and haste. Certain barriers can be prevented however, by awareness and adaptation to situations. Within most health and social care settings, situations within these features are expected, therefore preparation should be taken to identity for when they occur. The barriers which may occur include: Physical barriers which pertain to the physical distance between two people, Personal barriers which involve parts of an individual’s communication competence between those communicating, sematic barriers which involve the way in which we interoperate and understand the word used in the interaction for example ‘bimonthly’ means twice a month but the person who is listening may interpret it to ‘once a month’.

...Act 1976: This act was enforced by the law to forbid any sexual activity between care workers and individuals with mental health disorders, while the relationship of care proceeds. This does not prevent care workers from providing intimate personal care so long as the behaviour is not intended to be sexual. Care Standards Act 2000: This act was established by parliament and its purpose was to promote improvements in care via its triple functions of inspection, regulation and review of all social care services. The act aims to protect vulnerable adults and ensure their best interests are at heart. Care homes for Older people: National Minimum Standards and the Care Homes Regulations 2003: The importance of this act is to focus on the realistic outcomes for service users; this means the impact on it will have on the individual, the facilities and services of the home. This act is categorised under different topics such as their choice of home, health & personal care, daily life & social activities, complaints and protection, environment, staffing and management & administration which highlight aspects of individuals’ lives. Mental health Act 1993: The benefit of this act is that it helps to support the dignity in care by setting out the processes that must be followed and the safeguards for patients, to ensure that they are not inappropriately detained or treated.

...are as effective as possible, keeping the well-being of the whole body and its maintenance up to good standards. Heart rate Negative feedback is a way in which regulation occurs within the body which requires receptors, your control centre and effectors in order to be able to function properly. When key variables within the body are outside the accepted range for any reason negative feedback returns the variable within it’s acceptable range. An example would be if the PH of your blood changes for any reason or you become too hot after exercise so your body tries to regulate those variables back within the suitable ranges by different methods. Blood glucose levels may fall for any reasons and the bodies way of coping with this is to produce liver glycogen which is converted into glucose in order to bring the energy levels in cells back up to the range which it should be within. Our brain and nervous system are involved in negative feedback and play vital roles in controlling the homeostatic mechanisms within our bodies and they also allow us to have a reasonable judgement at when our key variables may rise. An example would be when we have not eaten for several hours and we begin to feel tired and cold you try to eat a hot, energy filled meal in order to counteract any negative feelings that you may be having. Heart beat is regulated by the control of the cardiac cycle as well as the role of the autonomic, parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous cycle. The control of......

Health and Social Care Level 3 Btec Communication Task 3

...Task 2 Effective communication in health and social care P3,P4,M2,D1 By Hannah Wilshire Communication is very important in a health and social care environment because effective communication is what is needed to understand how someone is feeling and this is crucial because then a care worker can help a service user and cater to their needs. But there are barriers to communication and a care worker will have to find ways to overcome those barriers. Factors that may influence communication and interpersonal interaction in health and social care environments: Barriers associated with the environment: Environmental factors can be a barrier to communication. For example if a care worker and a service user are trying to communicate, and there is lots of background sound. This can be a barrier to communication as the service user may forget what they are saying and if they were talking about their health then this could mean that the care worker is missing information. Therefore the care worker may not be able to give the service user adequate care and treatment as they do not know everything that the service user is experiencing. If it was quiet, then the care worker would not have back ground noise as a distraction, therefore their attention would fully be on the service user. Also if someone is using a hearing aid, the hearing aid will amplify background noise and the voice of the person who is speaking which could be distressing for someone. Also if the environment......

Barriers to Communication in Health and Social Care Unit 1 Level 3

...communication, such as a letter or email, and/or hearing spoken word conversations, for example between a care worker and a patient in a day care centre when the two are discussing future care plans, leading to possible misunderstandings, or embarrassment to the person with the hearing/visual impairment and they cannot fully understand the care worker if the care worker is not aware of, or not seeing to, the persons additional needs. These needs can be seen to by speaking clearly and slowly, and/or repeating, rephrasing what has been said, to help people understand what is being said to them. Time should be given to the message receiver; so that they can digest the information they have received and think about how they want to respond. Electronic devices can also be used, such as text phones, telephone amplifiers and hearing loops, and it is important to give the individuals using the devices enough time to use it whilst communicating. An induction loop system helps deaf people hear sounds more clearly by reducing or cutting out background noise. Conditions such as cerebal palsy, Down's syndrome, and autism tend to limit a person's ability to interpret other people's non-verbal communication, such as body language, and their ability to communicate verbally. In a care setting these needs should be attended to, so that effective communication can be achieved between the care worker and the individual with the condition. For example if someone with autism is having trouble......

...used positive reinforcement to teach the rat to press a lever by rewarding it with food whenever the lever was pressed. This caused the rat to determine that pressing the lever would mean he would receive food; therefore continued to press the lever. He also used negative reinforcement to teach the rat to press the lever; he ran an electric current through the rat’s cage, and when the rat presses the lever, the electric current would stop; therefore a removal of an undesired stimulus. This taught the rat that pressing the lever would remove the undesirable electric current. Punishment is when something undesirable is received after a certain behaviour in order to make that behaviour stop. Punishment is used to prevent bad behaviour. The Social Learning Theory was devised by Albert Bandura (1977); he states that, “behavior is learned from the environment through the process of observational learning.” (McLeod, 2011) Unlike Skinner, Bandura believed that humans learn by processing information and they consider the consequences of their actions to make decisions on their behaviour; Bandura argued that observational learning does not occur with the absence of cognitive processes which contribute to decisions regarding our behaviour. Bandura proposed the idea that young children have various models (parents and other members in the family, for example siblings or cousins, children’s television characters, teachers and nursery nurses, and peers within their friendship groups)......

Include all attachments. | Legislation | Human Rights Act 1998 | The human rights act 1998 did not come into force until October 2000 in the UK. The act is made up of a series of sections that have the effect of codifying the protections in the European Convention on Human Rights into UK law. All public bodies and bodies that implement public functions must follow and comply with the convectional rights. The act allows any individual to take human rights cases in domestic court, which will mean that people don’t have to go to Strasbourg to argue their case in the European Court of Human Rights.
