Before you start this case study make sure you read through your two case studies which have one adult and one children’s health and social care setting provided for you by your teachers (or from your own work experience)

The pages that I'm going to provide you is from a book called "BTEC National Health and Social Care Student Book 1: For the 2016 specifications (BTEC Nationals Health and Social Care 2016)"

TASK 1 – REPORT

PASS

A.P1 Explain the implications of a duty of care in a selected health or social care setting

For this question, define what duty of care is and give an example of where it has or has not been met in both of the case studies.

Clue: Page 298

A.P2 Discuss ways in which complaints and appeals procedures address failure in a duty of care in a selected health or social care setting

Use page 302 and 303 to help you with this question, for this talk about a specific complaints and appeals procedures and link it the case study setting

In simple terms

For this question you don't need to link it to the individual in your case study you only need to talk about the complaint procedure of the health/social care setting in your case study.

After talk about the benefits of complaints in the adult social care setting for example, it can help improve the quality of care

For example, if you case study is in a adult social care setting look up online about the Ombudsman who deals with complaints in those settings and the CQC talk about what the Ombudsman and CQC are then talk about the complaint procedure that they have

Define what abuse and neglect are and list down the types and signs of abuse and neglect

Clue: Page 308 to 317 also this PDF

B.P4 Explain the factors that may contribute to and reduce the likelihood of abuse and neglect for service users in health and social care

Talk about factors that contribute to the likelihood of abuse and neglect and then talk about the factors that can reduce the likelihood of abuse and neglect

Clue: Contribute to abuse and neglect page 317 to 319. Reduce abuse and neglect page 323 to 326

B.P5 Explain how to respond to concerns about abuse and neglect in the selected health or social care settings

Talk about how to response to concerns about abuse and neglect shown in the case studies by using page 319 to 323 as guidance


MERIT

A.M1 Assess the importance of balancing individual rights with a duty of care in a selected health or social care setting

For this question talk about why it’s important to balance individual rights to duty of care and linking it to your case studies. for example, it’s important to balance individual rights as the equality act (2010) states that you should treat everyone equality no matter what their sex, race etc. (following the equality act is an example of duty of care) is In the first case study two female couples want to live together but a member of staff would let them this is poor duty of care as the member of staff haven’t followed the equality act

Use page 298 to 301 to help you

B.M2 Assess the importance of recognising and responding to evidence or concerns about different types of abuse and neglect in health and social care

Talk about why it’s important to recognise and respond to evidence and concerns using page 319 to 322 for guidance, then link it to both studies, for example, one of the ways of recognising and responding to evidence is observation, in the second study the doctor noticed bruises at the base of Kevin’s spine and round marks on Lucy’s neck that resemble burns and was unconvinced at the father’s response as they’re more recent, however, she didn’t record her opinions, this could had lead to the death of two children


DISTINCTION

A.D1 Evaluate the significance of a duty of care and complaints procedures in promoting safe practice in a selected health or social care setting

Explain WHY it’s important to have a duty of care and have a complaint procedure to promote safe practice in (your setting that your case study takes place) by using (real life) evidence/examples, for example it’s important to provide duty of care as it can protect service users from neglect and abuse for example in a hospital care incident in 2001.... (then expand you answer).

Another example you can use is

The reason why it’s important to have complaint procedures is to help them improve in their safe practice for example (provide a real life example)

For this part, your not required to link this case study to your individual in your case study but rather talk about the setting that this case study takes place i.e. the hospital

Here's a website to get you started https://www.scie.org.uk/socialcaretv...guardingadults


B.D2 Justify procedures for responding to concerns about abuse and neglect in the selected health or social care setting

Explain WHY it’s important to for the people in both case studies (who haven’t responded to abuse and neglect) to respond to concerns on abuse and neglect




TASK 2 – RESEARCH FILE


PASS
C.P6 Compare the influence of different health and safety laws or policies on health and social care practice in a selected setting
Compare the two case studies to the health and safety laws on page 327 to 331 and explain whether the case studies have followed these health and safety laws

Use page 331 to 335. For example, if the first case study followed (put legislation here) they can protect service users from harm thus promoting safe practice

D.M4 Analyse how individual responsibilities and health, safety and emergency procedures contribute to safe practice in a selected health or social care setting
Explain how the responsibilities and health, safety and emergency procedures that you talked about in P6, P7 and P8 for each individual(s) in the case studies can affect safe practice. For example, if the service users and employees knew the fire emergency procedure they would know what to do in a fire emergency, thus promoting safe practice


DISTINCTION
CD.D3 Justify the effectiveness of health and safety legislation, policies and procedures in maintaining health and safety in a selected health or social care setting
Explain WHY health and safety legislation, policies and procedures can help to preserve health and safety in both of your case studies, basically how individuals/employees in the case study if they follow the health and safety procedures can change the way they conducted practice in the case study i.e. in the first case study if they had a procedure on coloured bins and where to store bins in for certain things it can help to save lives

CD.D4 Evaluate the importance of safe practice principles in maintaining and promoting the health, safety and welfare of service users in a selected health or social care setting
You should treat this section as a conclusion.
