In this research report, an investigation and evaluation will be carried out that will help in getting to know different opportunities and social integration facilities that are available to the individuals (Samuel, 2011).
LO 1 Partnership Philosophies and Relationships in Health and Social Care Services
1.1 Professionals in health and social care have a critical role to play in developing a much required relationships among the employees and other healthcare service providers. While working in the partnership in such organizations, there are different philosophies the individual come across such as humanity, equality, empowerment, respect, trust and all other similar attributes (Hornby, 2005). Coming on to the philosophy of empowerment, it can be described as a process that helps in maximizing the control over different actions as well as the decisions that are undertaken in health and social care context. It also helps in laying down the foundation of adequate and strong relationships between different business clients. They have now become highly acceptable within the social work practices and have also received certain legislative policies that tend to become the foundation stone among all the service providers (Dickinson and Glasby, 2009).
Unlike the same, philosophy of independence is all about the ability of the health and social care service providers to make the decisions that have a great impact on the life of the individuals and also control others (Stretch, 2012). Other factor that works in this segment is of power which means every individual must be given power and authority to take decisions in case of emergencies hence ultimately it can be said that there is a great need to develop ad practice adequate philosophies so as to create a healthy partnership for attaining the common goals and business objectives (Walsh, 2010).
1.2 There is a great need to maintain a feeling of empathy and care for the people who are coming to the healthcare organization which ultimately helps in recovering from their illness and physical or mental problems very quickly. There are different kinds of people that come to care home and expect a better and amicable behavior of the staff working. Like for instance, young or old age people with mental disability require deep care and understanding of their conditions so that they can also live a healthy life (Johnson and Souza, 2008). The care workers in case of such people have to understand their needs and behavior so that they can also develop a healthy relation with them. In case of people with physical disability, healthcare organizations should take care of the fact that all the equipments and tools that are required by them on daily basis are provided so that they do face any trouble in their daily duties (Birne and et.al, 2009). The health and social workers should become volunteers to each and every service users and distribute their duties evenly so that better care can be provided to the needy and they can also identify the person who comes daily for their support so that they feel comfortable with them (Ansari, 2009).
There are also many private and independent organizations and charitable trusts who are working for the people with all forms of mental and physical illness and provide them with every aid and treatment that is required with free of cost or with minimal charges. So service users who cannot afford expenses of healthcare can go to these places and can ensure a better livelihood (Deo, 2007). While working in partnership within the business corporation also does help the service providers in assessing the needs and also to eradicate all forms of barriers that tend to affect work processes. This might also include reviewing as well as enhancing the systems so that different disciplinary teams that can also be set up (Liddell, 2005).
LO 2 Ways to Promote Positive Partnership Working with Users of Services, Professionals and Organizations in HSC Services
2.1 The different partnership models in health and social care tend to speak about the order which is ahead of single levels and also result in some form of disagreement between two entities that are working together. There are also many important models in HSC (Health and Social Care) such as unified, coalition, hybrid, coordination, etc. The unified model in this context states that there are different principles that are in association with leadership management attributes and also involves service delivery through different agencies (Towill, 2009). The health and social care organizations can also use this approach with different financial systems so that necessary care can be provided to the service users. The coordinate model helps in looking at different units that are liable for business function and their incorporation within the company (Farnsworth, 2012). In HSC, coalition model is the one that occurs in most of its business functions so that the goals of the business can be attained and also enables the business process undertakings efficiently. This model also assists in enterprising range of elements that are important for business operations within the set rules and regulations (Petch, 2012).
In health and social care in UK, is basically based on humanistic theory which lay emphasis on attaining the individual needs and designs of the care services so as to protect the rights and dignity of the individuals (Iles and Smith, 2006). Other than this, HSC also gives in values on the significance of efficient communication with the business clients and also helps in developing a professional business environment that is further directed by the adequate changes in the policies. Humanistic theory is also accountable for the management of certain person centered models of care that are being practiced in UK and also gave efforts for directing all the recent policy reforms (Samu
