Promoting anti-discriminatory practice
Mental Health Act 1983

Human Rights Act 1998

Human Rights Act 1998
How does it promote anti-discriminatory practice?
It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by allowing individuals to use their rights against someone else. e.g taking a company to court for breaking their right to be safe in the nursing home.
Codes of conduct established by professional bodies
What is it?
A code of conduct is a set of rules which guide health and social care professionals on their roles, rights and responsibilities. They also give the service user an idea of what to expect from the carers in the nursing home.
Codes of conduct established by professional bodies
An example of a code of conduct from the Nursing and Midwifery Council is that "you must respect people's right to confidentiality." This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as the service users in the nursing home can't be discriminated against for something personal such as their mental health.
Codes of conduct established by professional bodies
Another example from the Nursing and Midwifery Council is that every adult, if they have the mental capacity to do so, can refuse treatment or give consent to it. However, this is overruled if they're not able to take in and process the information given. This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as they can refuse if theyre capable to do so, giving them a choice.
Skills for care
What is it?
The skills for care code of practice and rules of conduct are a list of rules and guidelines you must follow. It advises you on what is right and wrong in any health and social care setting, which is used alongside the law.
Skills for care
How does it promote anti-discriminatory practice?
It shows pictures and descriptions to help and advise staff how to treat the service users.
Charters
What is it?
A charter is a piece of information which is produced, outlining the requirements in which a corporation, such as a nursing home, should be organized and ran. It also states the rights and privileges that are in the nursing home.
Charters
How does it promote anti-discrimination practice?
In a nursing home, signs and leaflets will be spread throughout so that the service users, staff and visitors can read them. This ensures thst everyone is aware of the way they should be treated and the rights they have.
Positive promotion of staff development and training
What is it?
Gives people knowledge and understanding of how to work in certain jobs. Once fully trained still has to be kept up to date with changes in policies and procedures as well as legislation and technology. As technology changes all the time, it is compulsory for professional development.
Positive promotiom of staff development and training
Equality, rights and diversity legislations arwe also constantly updated regarding the best interest of the service user and so staff always need to be fully updated.

Positive promotion of staff development and training
How does it promote anti-discriminatory practice?
It helps staff understand about people of a certain ability so that their understanding is wider. Also so staff can understand the up to date technology available so they can provide the best care possible. It ensures the service users are treated with respect and dignity.
Positive promotion of confidentiality
Every workplace or organisation in the health and social care sector must have a confidentiality policy. The procedures must be stuck to in order to protect the individuals health status becoming known to unauthorised people which could lead to humiliation or loss of dignity. Confidentiality may need to be broken when the individual threatens theirs or someone elses life.
Positive promotion of confidentiality
This promotes anti-discriminatory practice as an individual's information is always kept unknown to unauthorised people. It also promotes anti-discriminatory practice as their information is safe which can prevent them from loss of dignity and being taunted and becoming embarrassed.
Positive promotion of human rights
What is it?
Employees within the health and social care sector must be aware of human rights issues and they need to know how to report any incidents that contravene an individual's human rights.
Positive promotiom of human rights
It promotes it as the employees of a certain health and social care sector, such as a nursing home, will be able to report any incidents correctly which may be affecting someones human rights. This means that the individual could have support from others in the care home as someone may be breeching their human rights.
M2 - Improving care for people with dementia
Jeremy Hunt Article - This has had a positive effect on promoting anti-discriminatory practice as Jeremy Hunt gave a speech to the NHS in Geneva at the World Health Assembly making more people aware of dementia. This would make people more aware and want to help people who suffer.
M2 - Improving care for people with dementia
It also helps to promote anti-discriminatory practice as the NHS are trying to make everyone understand and de-stigmatise of dementia so we can provide the best care for those who suffer and their carers. Over 108,000 people have received training in dementia care, with a further 250,000 to receive the training by March 2015. This makes everyone aware and prevents discrimination.
Rating
I rate the article 4 out of 5 as it states that it is very important to help amd over come discrimination. He states that 108,000 people have received training to help promote dementia care. He then goes onto say another 250,000 members of the NHS staff are to receive the training by March next year (2015), implying people are becoming more aware about dementia.
D1 - Evaluate the success
One strength of the policy is that it is raising awareness of dementia, making people fully aware on how to advise people to deal with dementia. The effects it has is that it makes people more aware and they can then go onto identify the symptoms, preventing the dementia from getting worse.
D1 - Evaluate the success
Another strength is that it has a "forget-me-not" symbol, which encourages communities, organisational places and educational places to show they're serious about becoming dementia friendly, showing support and being able to offer advice to those who have dementia, or know someone who does.
D1 - Evaluate the success
One weakness of the policy is that they don't really involve themselves with primary and secondary schools. This is a weakness as the children aren't really educated about it, preventing awareness being spread. This could spread awareness about dementia further as the children could tell their parents, who would take an interest in promoting awareness of dementia.
D1 - Evaluate the success
Another weakness of the policy is that the symbol, the forget-me-not flower doesn't really signify anything to someone who isn't aware of dementia. This could mean that peope may not understand the logo, which would prevent awareness from being spread as people could be unsure as to what it is.
