Task 1: LO1 Understand perceptions of health, disability, illness and behaviour

(Up to 750 words) Scenario

You are working in Health and Social Care as a Health Care Assistant (HCA). One of your clients, Daniel is a 42 year old man with Cerebral Palsy and diagnosed with a mental illness – Bi-polar Affective Disorder. The Cerebral Palsy affects his hearing and use of lower limbs. He is in receipt of

24 hour support and copes well with his impairment in general, undertaking various activities at a local theatre group and also goes swimming every day. He is very capably intellectually and has requested that you provide him with a summary report of recent academically informed research on the theme of how perceptions of Disability have changed in recent years and Government policies that have made a difference to the lives of Disabled people in relation to accommodation, work, rights and safeguarding.

Include in your summary report a reflective analysis to show how the knowledge gained in Unit 10: Safeguarding in Health and Social Care is linked to Unit 16 Understanding Specific Needs in Health and Social Care. For example for AC 1.3 on legislations, reflect on safeguarding legislations, policies and the effect of culture, values on individuals who have been victim of abuse

What to do

In your information pack you must:

1.1 Analyse concepts of health, disability, and illness and behaviour in relation to users of health and social care. [P1.1]

1.2 Assess and discuss how perceptions about specific needs have changed. Link your answers to the case study. [P1.2]

1.3 Analyse the impact of past and present legislations, social policies, society and culture on the ways that services are made available for individuals such as John and his family. Cite specific legislations and link them to your analysis [P1.3, M1]

Include in the information pack a reflective analysis to show how the knowledge gained in Unit 10: Safeguarding in Health and Social Care is linked to Unit: 16 Understanding Specific Needs in Health and Social Care. For example for AC 1.3 below, on legislations, reflect on safeguarding legislations , policies and the effect of culture, values on individuals who have been victim of abuse found in Unit

10.

Ø To achieve M1, judgements made about legislations social policies, society and culture and relate them to the case study and analysis of the impact they have on the way services are made available for individuals with specific needs must be demonstrated.

Task 2: LO2 Understand how health and social care services and systems support individuals with specific needs.

(Up to 750 words) Scenario

What you must do

Robert is in his 70s and is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and Dementia which sadly has left him fully immobile and in need of 24 hour care. Parkinson’s as well as other health care needs have left Robert confused, frightened and at times aggressive. His wife Jean in her 60s is the full time carer for her husband and is the most amazing woman. She loves to socialise with her friends and as a result of taking care of Robert, she no longer gets to her friends on a regular basis and often feels isolated. A live in carer assists the couple but with two people needed at all times to attend to Robert and with his rapidly declining health, the demands became too much and additional support was sought. You are asked to produce a brochure on social care services and systems that support individuals with specific needs.

2.1 You must analyse the different care needs of individuals such as Robert and his wife Jean with specific needs. [P2.1, M2]

2.2 In the second part of your brochure you should explain current system for supporting individuals such as Robert and Jean who have specific needs. [P2.2]

2.3 Finally, you should evaluate the services available in a chosen locality for individuals with specific needs. [P2.3, D1]

Ø To achieve M2 relevant theories have been applied when analysing physical needs, social needs, emotional needs , language needs, intellectual needs , spiritual needs of individuals such as Robert an his wife Jean.

Ø To achieve D1, conclusions have been arrived through synthesis of ideas and are justified when evaluating with examples of services available in a specific locality for individuals with specific needs.

Task 3: LO3 Understand approaches and intervention strategies that support individuals with specific needs.

(Up to 1000 words) Scenario

What you must do

You have been commissioned by a Health and Social Care journal to write an academic article entitled ‘After the Bournewood Case – contemporary approaches to Learning Difficulty/Older Peoples’ Care and Support/Challenging Behaviour’. A link to the Bournewood Case is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz5Ecovjs4w » or in your unit on the ICON VLE.

The editors have asked you to provide examples of good and/or improved practice in relation to specific needs in Health and Social Care – this can include Learning Difficulty, Older Peoples’ Care Needs, Challenging Behaviour and other specific needs covered on the course. They have indicated that particular attention should be paid to covering the significance in recent and emerging

approaches to supporting individuals with Specific Needs and also when possible indicate their overall impact.

3.1 The first section of the guidance you must explain the approaches and interventions available to support individuals with specific needs. [P3.1]

3.2 In the next section of the guidance you must evaluate the effectiveness of intervention strategies used for service users with specific needs. [P3.2, D2]

3.3 Finally, in the guidance discuss the potential impact of emerging developments on support with specific needs. [P3.3, M3]

Ø To achieve M3, a coherent discussion of concepts about the potential impact of emerging developments with examples given for the intended audience must be demonstrated on support with specific needs.

Ø To achieve D2, substantial activities and investigations have been planned managed and organised and your answer will demonstrate that you have looked at both sides of the arguments and give examples of the effectiveness of intervention strategies used for users with specific needs.

Tasks 4: LO4 Understand strategies for coping with challenging behaviours associated with specific needs.

(Up to 750 words) What to do

Mr. JC is an 85 year old Muslim man and has been attending Day Care to reduce his isolation in order to maintain a stable mental health condition. A severe stroke few years back left him with slow mobility and partial speech impairment.

He has a habit of using specific chairs in the lounge and in the dining hall. His food intake is also specific in terms of choosing a specific piece from a whole fish, which the day centre provider purchases from a local fish market. Any change of these choices causes him to become agitated and angry.

Once he is angry he becomes very aggressive and starts swearing at staff members using extremely degrading words in his native tongue. His aggressive attitude over time towards the staff has significantly increased. He believes that apart from the manager everyone has bad manners and also that everyone including the other service users has issues against him.

The care staff team became very unhappy due to his anger and aggressive behaviour. The Social Worker was contacted to review his case. He became angry while the meeting with the social worker was in progress. The social worker understood the situation and medical support was requested.

It is the responsibility of the manager to defuse the dissatisfaction of the members of staff and also to ensure that the best possible service is provided to Mr. JC. It is expected that you will produce a fact sheet for AC 4.1; 4.2; 4.3 which will include the different concepts of challenging behaviour, and include the impact of challenging behaviour and also analyse strategies.

4.1 In the first section produce a fact sheet that will explain different concepts of challenging behaviour. [P4.1]

4.2 The second section you must describe the potential impact of challenging behaviour on health and social care organisations. [P4.2]

4.3 Finally, in the third section of the fact sheet, you must analyse strategies for working with challenging behaviours associated with specific needs. [P3.3, D3]

Include in your fact sheet a reflective analysis to show how the knowledge gained in Unit 1: Communicating in Health and Social Care Organisations is linked to Unit 16 Understanding Specific Needs in Health and Social Care. For example for AC 4.3, in Unit 16 reflect on how communication can also impact challenging behaviours positively/negatively and how it is linked to AC 1.4 in Unit 1.

Your fact sheet should follow the same format as that demonstrated in class.

Ø To achieve D3, your evidence should demonstrate strategies relating to working with challenging behaviour associated with specific needs such as found in the case study.

Further Guidance for the fact sheet for LO4

The point of a fact sheet is to get the reader to do something. More information than you need to convince them is a waste of the reader’s time and risks losing their attention.

One to two page is best Make it readable – use at least 12 point font Keep the text brief – no one wants to read tons of information in small font Keep the most important information in the first paragraph – what the issue is, what action is needed, and label the main message(s) Give references for more information – in electronic communications you can offer links The fact sheet must be self-contained – do not refer to previous documents or assume that they remember the information Use bullets when you can Leave lots of white space Make it very clear what you want them to do – Bold, text boxes, and graphics add emphasis Give them all the tools they need to take the action – do not list “challenging behaviour” instead explain why they are challenging behaviour
