Transcript of Acts of Legislation - Anti Discriminatory Practice

In this part of the assignment we will be explaining how National Initiatives promote anti discriminatory practice and how it is promoted in health and social care settings. We will then be assessing a recent national initiative policy promoting anti discriminatory practice and the difficulties that may arise in a health and social care setting to put into practice anti discrimination. To conclude I will be evaluating a recent initiative that has been successful in promoting anti discrimination and how to overcome difficulties that may arise when anti discrimination is put in to place in a health and social care setting.

Acts of Legislation - Anti Discriminatory Practice
Data Protection Act (1998)
Controls how your personal information is used by organizations, businesses or the government.

These come under the sector of anti discriminatory practices where they over come discrimination if it takes place.
Sex Discrimination Act (1975)
Introduced in order to stop discrimination due to a persons gender. This can result in legal consequences.
Equality Act (2010)
Legally protects people from discrimination in the work place and wider society. Everyone is to be treated equally. The protected characteristics are:
• Age
• Disability
• Gender reassignment
• Marriage and civil partnership
• Pregnancy and maternity
• Race
• Religion or belief
• Gender
• Sexual orientation

The National initiatives makes it illegal to discriminate against people and acts as a deterrence to people who discriminate.
Dignity in Residential Care

4.'Pensioners in the care system are repeatedly being prevented from making up their own minds, denied treatment on the basis of their age, spoken down to and denied their privacy' (BBC News story)
1. "The number of reported cases of abuse or neglect of vulnerable adults in care in Kent has risen since 2005"
Have the Dignity Do's been met?
5. "Staff always available, approachable and willing to listen act on any requests"
An example where the initiatives have not been met..
It was hard for the family members of patients in Winterbourne to find out the way their family members were being treated and they knew nothing about.

The patients were explicitly bullied in front of the rest of the vulnerable people without any consideration or respect of their rights
In order to help prevent discriminatory practice, organisations should follow the 6 C's of care, which was introduced by the NHS.
1. Care
2. Compassion
3. Competence
4. Communication
5. Courage
6. Commitment
