Legislation,Charters and codes of practice.. Watch
I'm studying HND in Health and Social care at the moment.
My question is..
Legislation/charters and codes of practice that impact on the communication process.
So far, I have come up with The Children's Act 1989,2004
But I'm not sure how I can expand on this, I need to put about why there is an impact on the communication process.
Any ideas? Internet resources?
Equality Act 2010
Data Protection Act 1998
Human Rights Act 1998
Access of Health Records Act 1990
Voices into Action
Department of Health Information Charter
Codes of Practice
Health and Care Professions Council Standards of Proficiency for Social Workers
Organisational codes of practice
You mentioned the Children Act, so think about your duties under this Act. If you have any concerns for the safety or wellbeing of a child for example, you have to report it. Think about who you report this to, when you should report it, how, etc.)
I need to write about how these would each have an affect on the communication process..
