Working in Partnership in Health and social
1.1Explain the philosophy of working in partnership in health and social care
1.2Evaluate partnership relationship within health and social care services
Generally we can simply understand the partnership in working is a joint work for achieving the set aims within a designed group, people, professional according to any designed job. From the health and social perspective, it has meaningful trends in this study area only for the involvement or sharing with different professional like social worker, care worker, GP, Nurses and government authority. Just talk about a patient who is looked after by care worker, prescribed by doctor, nurses follow the doctor instruction and carer follow the doctor’s guidelines for medication. This way all kind of health professional is involving into a patient servicing. It is not only one way to find this sort of joint effort in health and social care unit, but we also find in some other area such as police, fire fighter and air force, etc. can also work together under specific situation for achieving a specific goal. So I will try to focus some of my skill writing about this subject matter and scenario accordance with this assignment title in the next following writings.
1.1 The Common philosophy is empowerment that is centre on focusing under working together task. This is only way to authorise a staff, colleague can dedicate their work to provide a best service for the interest of their working company. Under this study unit, we can identify the staff or care worker always bear a common goal of serving the client with their best capability accordance with their trained knowledge, skills, and experiences which is specified by the organisation. So this kind of authority of power can make them more confident to serve the service user in caring sector. Then step by step the caring professional takes the prospect of respectability of client, shows their attention to independent power to the service user which is encouraging by care staff such as client choices, preferences, wishes, etc. again if any client need special help it is done by guidance of agreed way between the user and company or organisational aims. From this little brief about philosophy of working partnership is starting with empowerment of staff and client, respect issue of working together and working in agreed way of caring is carried out by the professional working individual for the well being of the patient. This is diagram which is reflection of philosophy ——
1.2 While we see any working condition as a whole team for achieving a big target is meaning to get a best result of the combine effort. In other hand, some of working together need to be evaluating on what target or plan is designed. So it is worthy of mentioning about established research what can show us some side of relationship between carer and individuals settled point. That also show us supporting way for staff with appropriate tools, experiences and knowledge what can bring forward a good result. I also put an effort to make some writing on model is following
? It is an open and truthful contract
? Understanding of Selection, equality, fairness, belief and sympathy is needed to be showing while caring services is provided
? Self administrating in the respective situations
? Follow the customs made care plan
? Maximum ability to avoid the obstruction according to current legislations
? Follow the multi-disciplinary knowledge as best possible
? Best communication is available within partner team or group or organisations
Along with above this the partnership work is to be evaluate on a common goal, all partner have to have similar ethos or beliefs, working condition should be establish on reasonable period of length, there have to have mutual understanding of working morality on contribution and should have to be respect each other and trustiness.
• It is an open and truthful contract
• understanding of Selection, equality, fairness, belief and sympathy is needed to be showing while caring services is provided
• Self administrating in the respective situations
• Follow the customs made care plan
• Maximum ability to avoid the obstruction according to current legislations
• Follow the multi-disciplinary knowledge as best possible
• Best communication is available within partner team or group or organisations
2.1 Analyse the model of partnership relationship working across the health and social care.
2.2 Review the current legislations and organisational practices and policies for the partnership working in health and social care
2.3Explain how differences in working practices and policies affect collaborative working
In the health and social care study, the partnership is used to signify the health and social care values and its application. As we already know that partnership is happening between two or more groups, organisation or individuals to work together to achieve a combine target. So it has a powerful value to the health and social care learner. There are three basic models available: Multi-disciplinary model
a. Multi-disciplinary: it is a kind of model for working together involves various group, company, agency, etc the similar working freely to achieve the goal with a common objectives. Such as nurses, midwifes, and occupational therapists work together to resolve any client health in the point of social care or health perspective what can show us multi-disciplinary health and social care practice.
b. Multi-professional is another model which is making sure the existence of different professional are working to achieve a goal. Like doctors, nurses and pharmacist.
c. Multi-sect oral is kind of so many different sector of group, organisation, people, specialist, doctors, etc. more specifically we can say that specialist from health sector, engineer from road and safety division, teacher from university or school or college, consultant from of developed agency, etc. are attending on discussion about overall development project for health awareness.
Some other disciplinary model of partnership we also see relationship is forming among joint working together models. Such as when joint efforts are working on partnership basis to achieve a goal, there is happening inter-partnership relationship, inter-disciplinary relationship and inter-professional relationship. So partnership is not only a working together for achieving a target but in true sense, it is also a great way to make relationship with each other organisation, group, professional , etc. which can produce a great result in practical field with combination of various ideas, skills, knowledge and experiences and so on.
In the application of health and social care practices, we also can see some laws, legislation and act which is acting properly to maximise the public health and promote the integrated care while this laws are in practice in health sector, which also can secure better patients care, removing inequalities in accessing services. Now I will draw sketch about the existing laws behind the health and social care. Which are as following in below?
a. (Mental capacity act 2005) which can empower the client and care professional or doctor, nurse according to guidance and policies.
b. (Children act 1998) this law has a basic aim to establish the wellbeing of children safety, security and developing in the society. Such as they need to stay in safe shelter, fulfil of all economic demand so that they enjoy and achieve all basic needs.
c. Care standard act 2008
d. The disability discrimination act 2005
e. Health and safety at work 1974
f. POVA training for support worker according to care standard act part 7
g. Equality act 2010
In where all above laws are functioning to develop public health and safety as well as those are active for different professional as guidelines.
We as a health and social care student, we are coming across so many various thing such as we face some negative result after working with partnership effort. Similarly, we are also confronting with so many government rules and regulations functioning to control overall situation of health and social care sector. In practically, we can see when a policy is under action by government or any other business organisation may influence and determines the works the collaborative target.
Whenever we see that kind of joint working effort is going on, there must be have some of the negative result or feedback. Although there is absolute presence of joint effort with positive view, motivated, there is a chance to happen misunderstanding of working together. In that particular situation, it may create the unified way of working model or in reverse way of looking should be negative impact if there is conflict between the organisations just because of the implementation of their own respective policies, motto and them. So we cannot avoid this kind of conflict at all which may lead to find out so many barrier in real situation. In spite of having this kind of conflict happen in real joint working condition, we can see how the entire compulsory department, educational body, govern authorities working under joint effort.
NHS is a major service provider in health and social care area which is supporting the policies about patient and it associated things
Government is also looking after the entire sector of the state and supporting all collaborative work between the different organisation in any forms of funding demand and helping is mitigated by the govt.
3.1 Evaluate possible outcomes of partnership working for users of services, professionals and organisations
3.2 analyse the potential barriers to partnership working in health and social care services
3.3 devise strategies to improve outcomes for partnership working in health and social care services
Now I am going to give a try about the evaluation of different result in where we can see the negative and positive sides. Those are following below under the basis of good and bad result.
When care is required to develop to make sure by comparison to what work is done before that should need to follow.
Any kind of decision making can be formed to all groups by agreed way.
Empowering can be follow for a good result.
Any kind of autonomy power of service can be helpful to get best result’
Each and every member of the group or team or joint working force would be clearly mentioned on their project plan and divide the working roles.
Good communication within the partnership work is needed.
Negative side of partnership:
The conflict is always harmful or anger to service
The level of miscommunication may happen within working group
The frustration among the professional should be eliminate
The clear message of the outcome can’t be reachable.
The negative is the combination of expensive, loss of sharing control and imaging may be breaks down in evaluating period.
3.2 We can easily identify some barriers are really bad for the caring people who are in resided in care settings or belonging to this category. Those are as follows:
Structural barriers: All caring provider have their own structures and it’s different from each other and sometimes this cause troubles during joint working time. So their services may be divided with the practices of the organisation policies and some staff cannot be agreed to work together.
Procedural barriers: according to some study suggest that the sort of procedural difference can draw a difference between the strategy and the organisation values while apply the working together or working in partnership in practical.
Financial barriers: Sometimes this is not necessarily needed to work with together at all for any organisation which are engaged in partnership work because it may be costing and can bring adverse result in financial maintenance view. Best example of this should be the financial resources for a government organisation such as NHS are too different than any private organisation and this kind of difference in the sources and also the amount could create some problems in the partnership relation building.
Barrier in professionalism practices: we cannot deny that every organisation has their own values and ideology who is working on their own target with base of their unique professional knowledge, skill and expertness. So obviously there is a clear difference in the sense of values and structural base of organisation while they are practicing own set up goal. They must need to follow the established way of working which can be determine best professional interest and choice in real practical field so that it may reduce any sort of professionalism conflict.
3.3 After above different results of working in joint effort, we can indentify barriers what is highlighted which might need caution of the negative result possibly convertible into a positive by doing some improvement can be made within policies and planning and professional practices.
Empowering issues: in this study practice we can see specific responsibility of the organisation to promote their services by empowering staff, the client for the service issues in certain way.
Sharing and caring: According to some recognised study insist on shared and cared approach what are only basis of extreme looking after each other with partnership work. So that is a necessary for every professional to have idea about applications of current laws.
Targeting specific objective: NHS guidelines (2014) describes that assigning the goals and objectives for achieving maximum output by employing qualified professional, trained staff, skilled and expert employee can bring out best possible ways to solve any issues in a proper and righty manner. Talent work mainly depends on qualified staff which can be borrowed among the relationship group while partnership working is applied.
Risk assessment: Fundamentally, it is needed to practice of risk assessment in all sorts of caring premises. According to current law and legislation, all health care setting must need go through a risk assessment process which might guide them to improve or not while working together.
Conclusion: In final we can say that working with partnerships is a meaning of performing together as a team to achieve a best output from the practicing the whole knowledge, skills, tools, techniques in spite of facing many challenges, barriers, obstructions, etc. so the entire joint effort will bring forward a positive result always, we cannot admit this as it is hard to combine or unite the working together. But undoubtedly we can say that it is a best way to produce best and ideal way to solve any solution if it is done by proper effective leadership or agreed way.
