Promoting Anti-Discriminatory Practice- Codes Of Practice.
Transcript of Promoting Anti-Discriminatory Practice- Codes Of Practice.
Codes of conduct established by professional bodies.
The nursing and midwifery code promotes anti-discriminatory practice as it includes rules and regulations that must be followed by all nurses and midwives to give acceptable levels of care and avoid discrimination. An example of this is the trust section of the code. It explains that the people in the nurses/midwives care must be able to trust that individual. To gain their trust the section suggests specific actions that support anti-discriminatory practice and the CVB. This includes, treating a person as an individual, using respect and dignity, acting with integrity and working as part of a diverse team. This is with the aim of eliminating discrimination as it explores each factor with a solution to prevent or overcome unfair treatment.
Skills for Care codes of practice for social care workers/em
This code ensure that social care services are beneficial and adequate enough for people. The health and social care skills for care code promotes anti-discriminatory practice as it outlines equality and involves gives people equal opportunities. An example of this is that new recruits are given staff training so they can use the skills learned in their training during work. This training involves teaching recruits what discrimination is and that of any kind is not acceptable. The bosses must look after individuals using their services.
social care bosses need to ensure the right people enter social care work and they know their job and purpose. This initiates that they carefully advertise to sift through people to ensure those potential workers do not discriminate. Criminal record checks are also made before people are given jobs to ensure individuals that are employed do not have a history of unfair treatment against others. This is done in the nursing home through looking at good references to make sure the person is trustworthy. Also, in the nursing home or any social service, there must be written guidelines in place therefore making it practical for workers to meet the codes. This helps to eliminate discrimination as it is expected that everyone is treated equality within the facility. Training must also be provided for workers to ensure they improve their standards of care and learn new diversity friendly techniques of working therefore as not to discriminate. In case of any bad or dangerous behavior, guidelines must be erected to help workers, bosses and service users to be protected from harm and unjust treatment as no one person should be favored above another. Social care bosses, (the boss of the nursing home), must make these codes known by the workers and service users. The social care council must also be warned if someone breaks the code therefore promoting anti discriminatory practice as no unfair treatment goes unnoticed or unpunished.
Charters, e.g. Entitlement to services
A charter is a grant written by legislative power of a country by a sort of area, facility or practice is made or it's privileges or rights defined. This promotes anti discriminatory practice as it helps staff and service users aknowlege the laws of the area they live in and how seriously they should be followed in order to protect individuals from emotional and physical harm as well as discrimination.
Entitlement to services- There is a bigger and bigger demand for care services as time goes on. However, services must be provided within their own budget therefore sometimes services cannot always give services to everyone who requires them. Due to this an eligibility criteria was created to give priority to individuals who are in desperate need of care. This criteria has different levels of need and risk ranging for low to critical. This promotes anti discriminatory practice as it ensures everyone will get help but it makes it fair for those who are in most urgent need of it. This takes care of the needs of every individual in an appropriate way and takes into account all factors of the person thus making it anti discriminatory.
