ASS072-1 Introduction to Health and Social Care


1. Demonstrate the following knowledge and understanding of explanations for the distribution of health and differential access to health care in the UK and account for the health and care outcomes of differing social

2.  Demonstrate the following skills and abilities: One-to-one working skills required to work with individual clients within a role play scenario and reflect on and assess your role play performance and one-to-one working skills, identifying ways to improve future practice.

In reality your role-play will take a maximum of 8 to 10 minutes. In this time, you will complete 2 mini role-plays. In one you will play the role of the professional/practitioner/service provider and your partner the role of the patient/client/service user. In the second you will play the role of the patient/client/service user and your partner will play the role of the professional/practitioner/service provider. This is so that you both gain experience of being a service provider but also experience what it is like to be a service user. You have to audio record your role play and submit this as evidence. Your reflective assignment will not be marked if you both did not submit the audio file on time.

Your written reflection must consist

1) An introduction - setting out what you are writing about, the scenario where you were the professional, and what role you played.

2) A very brief explanation of the scenario that you and your partner agreed upon (setting the scene). This will involve defining the nature and responsibilities of your professional role which, together with your discussion of the scenario, should be brief (no more than 100 words). This assignment is not to simply be a  of what was said and done in the role play.

3) An analysis of and reflection on the one-to-one working skills that took place in your role-play. This will be an interplay of how practitioner and client engaged and responded to each other, so you have to focus on both role players. Here you need to draw on academic sources/references linking skills to theory (particularly to reflective cycles of learning, such as Gibbs’ or Kolb’s).

4) Information and analysis of what the ethics and values were that came into play in your scenario. Mention the difference between personal values and professional ethics and how you, the professional worker, dealt with this. Again, you should support your discussion here with academic sources/references.

5) State the strengths and the weaknesses of the interplay/meeting/interview. Say what did not go well and what would you do differently if you did it again.

6) Conclusion – this should be a summary, demonstrating where your assignment met the aims and objectives in your introduction.

You will be expected to draw on parts of at least six sources, only one can be an Internet source and the remaining five should be academic/peer-reviewed sources (that is academic books or academic journals), to support your discussion.  The six is a minimum; students are encouraged to carry out wider reading.

Written expression is an important element of good written communication, so try to write clearly and accurately. Proofread your work before handing it in and/or ask a trusted person to read it through for you.

No more than 5 –10% of the assignment should be in the form of quotations.

You must use the Harvard referencing system to identify the source of all the information used in your assignment. You must reference systematically throughout the work itself and include a reference of the sources cited in your work.  Please pay particular attention secondary referencing in the referencing guidelines. You will find a copy of the latest referencing guidelines on the unit’s BREO site. Also read the section headed ‘Plagiarism and Bad Academic Practice’ in the Assessment and Feedback section of the unit’s BREO site.

Your work must be word processed, double spaced and page numbered. You must also include a word count.

You are reminded that plagiarism of any type will be penalised and result in your work not being marked/failing.

In order to pass Assessment 2 you will need to:

•Demonstrate the one-to-one working skills of effective communication (active listening, feedback and empathy, good techniques of questioning, etc.) required to work with individual clients within a role play scenario.

·Reflect on and assess your role play performance and one-to-one working skills and identify ways to improve future practice.

·Identify the values, skills and ethics underpinning work with vulnerable groups and the importance of boundaries within practice and conflict that can arise between personal values and professional ethics.

How do I produce high quality work that merits a good grade?

Read this assignment brief carefully including the marking criteria on the next page. You need to read widely drawing on a range of appropriate academic books and/or peer-reviewed journal articles. You will avoid relying on non-academic web sources.

You utilise an appropriate theoretical model for your reflection such as Gibbs’ reflective cycle or Kolb’s learning cycle.

You will demonstrate clear understanding of the ethical issues involved in your role play scenario and how these were or should have been addressed.

You will apply the Harvard referencing rules accurately throughout the text of your essay and in your reference list. Your reference list will be in alphabetical order with all sources cited in the text appearing in your reference list and all sources in your reference list will appear in the text. An exception is when you cite a secondary source that you read about in a source you read/a primary source. In that case only the primary source (the source you read) should appear in the list of references. It is important to ensure you use secondary referencing, i.e. you use the ‘cited in’ expression in the text, where it is needed so you avoid poor academic practice/plagiarism.

You will write in your own words and always cite in the text where you got the information from. Your referencing will be systematic – every paragraph you write in the main body of your essay will be full of references correctly formatted.

You will make sure you thoroughly proofread your work before submitting and seek support on referencing if necessary.
