The social care and the health care workers are mostly found engaged in the employment in the client’s home, hospitals, health care institutions, community day care home and other nursing institutions (Batenburg et al.2013). The act of care giving is mostly demonstrated by the capability to personify flue that five of the major core values that are extremely essential in the practise of the professional nursing. These values of professional nursing are important since they encircle integrity, dignity, autonomy and notions of social justice (Belbin 2014). This assignment highlights the strengths and the weakness of mine towards the contribution in the field of health and social care.
The respect towards the fundamental dignity of each and every person centres on the heart of the rights of the human. The principles of equality and individual autonomy are also applicable on the professionals involved in the health and social care field (Crawford and LePune 2013). The development and maintaining of good relationships is thus the central towards the improvement of the outcomes in the health and the social care. It is the role and the responsibility in the professional relation for effective generation of an atmosphere where there lies sincerity, truthfulness and abilities (Deacon and Cleary 2013).
According to my personal insight, the service users in the field of health and social care like me generally face evaluation that includes both the strength and the weakness regarding their support services and their rights. I aim to provide and promote their rights while enabling reflection on the effectiveness of the services and the care. The improvement of the patient care has become one of the priorities for all the health and the social care providers like me. It aims to achieve one of the higher degrees of satisfaction of the patient (Galegher et al.2014).
One of the essential values that I consider important in my professional practise of health and social care is the quality of the patient care. These are largely determined by the quality of training, infrastructure, personnel competence and efficiency of the operation systems. Some of the noted patient care methods that I feel is important includes continuous monitoring, effective communication, restoring the rights and the dignity of the patient, recording and analysing the medical history and the symptoms of the service users, collaboration with the team for planning of the care for the patient, monitoring of the signs and the health of the patient, effective operation of the medical equipments, encouragement of the awareness and education to the service users regarding the management of their diseases and illness (Kutton et al.2013). Some of the noted weakness in the method of service of patient care or social care that I feel is required to be addressed includes the following. The accessibility and availability of proper health care specialists in case of emergency and needs, often the service users of health and social services keeps waiting for their turn to visit the specialist. In major of the developing countries of the globe, waiting has been one of the major issues due to the higher demand of the health care services. The need for well trained counsellors of the patients and effective addresses towards the continual review of the responses of the patient are thus required for making necessary changes. One of the major weaknesses of the procedure of services of health and social support according to my personal insight is the lack of relevant and clear information to the service users like us regarding all the procedures, both medical and administrative. Besides this the not so friendly check ins and check outs and the unfriendly behaviour and communication with the service users contributes to the weakness or the negative factors of the method of health and care services.
My values and strengths can furthermore be connected to the fact that I believe in the restoration of the dignity of the patients rights, maintenance of the confidentiality of the information of the patients and commitment towards the safeguard of the governmental policies and procedures in relation to effective and fair treatments and are irrespective of any sexual and gender boundaries and limitations. The quality or the factor of effective communication and appropriate verbal communication with the patients and the service receivers helps me to rapidly connect with my patients and gain their trust (Kutton et al.2013). This furthermore helps me in building a friendly relation with them. However, my orthodox attitudes and beliefs contribute to the negative and the weakness of my values and practises towards my professional health care practises. Navigation of the linguistic and cultural or social requirements of the patients or the service users as well as my team members are uncomfortable and often leads to a situation where my actions and behaviours hurts them and their sentiments. Besides this, lack of the time management skill in me furthermore contributes to my nature of procrastination.
The above stated factors are somewhat responsible for my degrading, poor quality and inefficient flow of professional health care services. Hence I believe that this calls for the improvement and the development of my personal skills and behaviour. Furthermore I believe that apart from my personal development, the roles and the responsibilities of the team should also be evaluated and improved for better and fruitful actions.
Tuckman’s theory explains the different stages of development (Crawford and LePine 2013). These are storming, forming norming and performing. Furthermore I tried to resolve all of my personality clashes and the disagreements with my team members for effective co-operation and fruitful collaboration. Furthermore I started respecting my other team members and forwarded a hand of assistance and help. Thus it can be concluded that effective and collaborative team work can increase the possibility of the cohesion in the group. Each and every member in my team should thus have a clear understanding and knowledge of their designated roles and responsibilities and furthermore should take certain responsibilities for limitation of any of the confusion arising in the professional health care and social care practises.
