INTRODUCTIONPractice decision making in health and social care sector plays a crucial role, because anywrong decision taken by an intermediate social carer could lead a patient to go through a rangeof issues like serious illness, severe medical health conditions and so on (Benner, 2015). Here, itis may be possible that patient if he or she is able to take decisions by his or her own and thenalso carer is forcefully providing services to patient than, this is basically covering a situationwhere carer might get sue under Mental Capacity Act, 2005. Present report is going to beenclosed with a case given of AB, who has just got discharged from the hospital and providedwith the care at home as well. AB, this individual was basically presented as unkempt, strongurine smell, urinating on the floor due to kidney failure causing urine incontinence. On the otherside, individual was also taking unwise decisions, but this affected negatively upon individual'shealth conditions and this whole scenario led intermediate social care to take decisions ofreferring AB to district nurses so that his health needs could easily be covered (Braun, 2015).Along with this, report is going to show 4 areas, 2 models and 2 complexities in regardsto Anti-oppressive practice all the way through the project like sexism, ageism, power issues andso on. Assignment is also going to cover policy or statutory guidance carries same guidance aslaws like Social Services Act, 1970 under section 7. Four areas, on which the whole investigationwill be done are anti-discriminatory practice, anti-oppressive practice, Ethical dilemmas andStrengths perspectives among carer and patients (Chaplain, 2017). Report will also put light onprofessional documentation produced within the work and the legislation, national or local policyprocedures or guidelines that directed the completion of this documentation (Cherniss, 2016).MAIN BODYKey themesRelated to the topic, there are some of themes, that are being developed by me whiledeveloping this assignment in regards to the chosen case and these are given beneath:1. Anti-discriminatory practice :This is one of the crucial theme, that has beendeveloped by me while looking at the case and while offering AB with a range of services, evenwhen he was declining on beneficial services offered by him for his better conditions. This isdirectly showing that, even when services that were being offered by me, was done without evendoing any sort of discrimination with patient (Doel and Shardlow, 2017).
2. Anti-oppressive practice :In present context, while serving different range of servicesto AB will directly lead in reducing the oppressive structure, which was being followed by staffof hospital, even when AB was becoming repulsive from the things (Duffy, Avalos and Dowling,2015).Ageism, sexism, power issues are some of the issues that were being faced by careprovider at home. This whole situation made AB opposed of the situation and itwas pretty muchrequired for me as intermediate social carer to serve AB with the best practice in regards toimprove living and health related standards.3.Ethical dilemmas:Listening to others like seniors, even when the situation is totallyopposing might raise ample number of issues. In present context, the first issue that came in frontwas the opposing nature of AB. This could be understood with a good example, where I offeredhim with a long term care pack, he directly refused which was an unwise decision that was taken(Fong, 2016). This impacted negatively upon overall working conditions, which made unethicalassurances to4. Strengths perspective :While offering AB with different range of services, it wasrequired totake in use ofStrengths-based approach(Gould and Taylor, 2017).Basically,thisapproach is showing that skills, values liked with capacity, knowledge, connections and potentialare said to be the elements that helps in developing much more effective communities andstandards in regards to the society. Focusing on strengths does not mean ignoring challenges, orspinning struggles into strengths. In present context, I was dealing with the complex problemalone, working in collaboration would helped me out in taking right decisions not only formyself but for AB as well (Howard-Drake and Halliday, 2015).TheoriesPositive risks theory:Positive risk is said to be a crucial theory, that is continuously helping individuals inregards to taking share within a particular idea that helps in accepting all the behaviours throughinvolving some potential for loss or harm (Jeffreys, 2015). Through this, all the risks that werelinked with the case and these areAB who has directly reached to gainmaximum benefits andthis has helped in achieving different range of goals in specified time frame like improvementwithin the nature of AB in regards to the chosen topic and i.e. to enhance or to improve
