Transcript of promoting anti-discriminatory practice

Mental Health Act 1983
The Mental Health Act 1983 covers the people that are sectioned as they may be a risk to themselves and others. The four mental illnesses bands that this act covers are : mental impairment, severe mental impairment, mental illness and psychopathic disorders.
There are many sections to this act. However, the main section are section 2, 3 and 117.
When section 2 has been enforced it is to detain a patient in hospital, to assess their mental health. The patient will be in hospital for no longer than 28 days, where the doctors will asses whether they suffer from a mental disorder, which type of disorder the patient has. And whether treatment is necessary and what effects it may have on the patient in question.
When section 3 is enforced it is to give the patient the treatment that need to have to help with the mental disorder. they are unable to say no to the treatments and they can only go if the care manager on the ward allows them to.
Under section 117 the patient is released and then sent to community services for further counselling after the treatment has started to work and they are no longer a risk to themselves or others.
This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as everyone in the ward is treated equally and their health and well being is at the heart of the service.
Disability Discrimination Act 2005
The disability discrimination act of 2005 aim is to make sure that every person with a disability is treated fairly and equally. The act is in place so that service providers, facilities and other professional don't discriminate against them because they have a disability.
This act is aimed at the professionals as they cant refuse to provide any service which it provides to other members of the public and a lesser standard of service can not be given to disabled people. The act now covers all people in the public as the aim now is to positively promote disability equality. By explaining how you will promote equality for disabled people, challenging discrimination against disabled people and helping to remove barriers for all disabled people.
This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as everyone is treated equally and disabled people get the same opportunities as everyone else and access to the same services. Showing that everyone is treated equally.
Human Rights Act 1998
This act is to ensure that everyone is being given access to their basic human rights, that everyone is entitled to, unless said otherwise like imprisonment or under sectioning of the mental health act. Where some rights can be taken away either because its for the person's health and well being or its to keep others safe.

The Act sets out the fundamental rights and freedoms that individuals in the UK have access to. They include:

Right to life
Freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment
Right to liberty and security
Freedom from slavery and forced labour
Right to a fair trial
No punishment without law
Respect for your private and family life, home and correspondence
Freedom of thought, belief and religion
Freedom of expression
Freedom of assembly and association
Right to marry and start a family
Protection from discrimination in respect of these rights and freedoms
Right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
Right to education
Right to participate in free elections.

This positively promotes anti-discriminatory practice, as everyone has the same rights, will be treated equally and noone can be a target of discrimination as people are entitled to privacy and confidentiality, which will lower the risk of being discriminated against.
NMC Code
This code is to make sure that the people using the service are:
treated with equality
that their health and well being is at the heart of the service
everyone is entitled to the same standard of care and the same opportunities are given to every service user.
confidentiality is respected at all times

This code also applies to the professional in the service by:
making sure that every single person working or training is treated equally.
that the standards of training and education are the same for every professional in the service.
work well as a team in all situations big or small. Be honest and open and never fail to answer the questions being asked by the service users as they are the people at the heart of the service.

This code shows that everyone is entitled to the services both users and professionals. As everyone is treated with equality and they have the same opportunities as the others in the care or using the service. This can promote anti discriminatory practice by making sure that everyone is treated equally, and everything is kept confidential unless the service user says otherwise. Also it promotes anti discriminatory practice as the service users are at the heart of the service
Skills For Care Code
This code is created for social workers and the bosses of the social workers. It was made to make sure that social services are good for people.

The code for the Bosses:
says that they have to ensure that the workers are doing a good job and doing it properly.
they have to protect the people using the service
need to ensure that they allow the right people to work in the service.
they need to check criminal records and other lists to make sure that the people being chosen are appropriate.
need to ensure that written guides have been produced so that the workers know what rules they need to follow, like keeping confidentiality, equal opportunities

The code for the Social Workers:
says how they should go about their daily job
must treat people as the individuals they are.
respect and keep the privacy of service users.
respect diversity between service users.
be reliable.
keep the health and safe guards about the service users.

This code shows that people are entitled to use the service as both professionals and service users are protected by the code. This code promotes anti discriminatory practice by ensuring that everyone is treated equally in the service and the safety of the users are at the heart of the service. Confidentiality is a key aspect of the code and treating the service users in a diverse way also.
Charters and Entitlement to services
Positive promotion of staff development and training
Staff development and training need to be renewed every now and then so that the employer knows that the staff member is appropriate for the job of being a carer in a residential care home. Also staff training will need to happen a lot as a new way of running or caring for people may be voiced and they will need to train how to do this. Also a new resident may arrive and the assigned carer may not know how to sign if the resident is deaf. so the carer will need to learn how to sign in order to communicate with the resident in question.

This positively promotes staff training as the staff will be trained so that they look after the people in their care properly and nothing is forgotten from when they first trained as a carer. This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as if the training is correct then the residents will never be treated differently as everyone will be able to live they way they have lived all their life and they can communicate in their preferred method. Training can also be a positive promotion of anti-discriminatory practice. As all the carers are entitled to the same education and noone misses out on the opportunity to learn.
Positive promotion of confidentiality
Confidentiality is ensuring that information is stored and kept private unless the service user that the information is about says otherwise. This is a very important and highly recognized thing in health and social care, and every professional is expected to keep certain information private. Especially in a residential care home, as people ill. This promotes anti-discriminatory as when all the information is kept private, noone will have anything to use to as a way of discriminating against the people living in the care home.
By Shannon Williamson
Promoting anti- discriminatory practice
Individual rights are what everyone is entitled to for example:
the right to have things remain confidential until the person says otherwise
the right to be treated like an individual and with diversity and equality

These rights can be positively promotional of individual rights, as the individuals are at the heart of the the service. Like in a care home all the individual rights that the resident is entitled to will be given. This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as everyone is treated equally and they all have the same rights as everyone else in the care home.
Positive promotion of individual rights
A Charter is a written grant by the people in power of a country, by such as a borough, company, or university is created or its rights and privileges defined.

Entitlement to services, in the UK everyone that lives here are entitled to free NHS medical care. This means that everyone is entitled to the services because if they pay tax and are a british citizen they are entitled to the free NHS medical care. This promotes anti- discriminatory practice, as everyone is entitled to the same care and noone gets more than others, and unless you choose to go private then there are no fees for everyone in UK
Improving Care for People With Dementia
This is a policy to promote the help and care about people with dementia. To help there housing, care and to help overcome stereotypical remarks. This policy involves people suffering from dementia, dementia friends and the carers involved with caring for people with dementia.

They have influenced members of the public and carers to sign up to the dementia care and support compact. They were a big influence because they funded 30 million pounds into the housing of those with dementia. They raised awareness to promote dementia friendly communities. This is a 4 out of 5 because it helps to improves standards of living for people with dementia.

The policy is also influential because its available online. Nowadays, everyone is on the internet so they can access the policy whenever needed. However, i will rate it a 3 out of 5 although people can access it, it may be harder for those without internet.
Success of the recent policy
This policy have been successful because over 150 organizations have signed up to the national dementia declaration. Meaning that the policy is growing within and outside of the community in which it was first founded.

Another strength of the policy is that every is entitled to this policy if they are involved with someone that has dementia or if they have dementia themselves. It is also open to the people who are willing to raise for cause . This shows that the policy is open to everyone and the service users are at the heart of the policy.

A weakness of this policy is that by 2040 the rate of people with dementia will triple. This could have an effect on the cause as the funds may not be enough for the amount of people in the UK suffering with dementia or have someone in their life/career that suffers from the condition.

Another weakness is that the policy and fundraising may not be accessible to the people who need it the most in the world. As it is more promoted in the UK. This could be changed as the policy could be more wide spread in different ways than just the internet so that the people who need it but dont have access to the policy will be able to get involved.
