Explain key influences on the personal learning processes of individuals. Assess the impact of key influences on the personal learning processes on own learning. There are many different factors that influence a persons learning; these can be negative or positive, stimuliâs or barriers. Visual learning styles are called kinaesthetic and auditory. A visual learner is someone who learns by watching something, such as a video and watching someone demonstrating something, watching them do something, for example a person may learn to drive by watching someone regularly driving. Kinaesthetic learning mean a person learn by doing something, such as a practical activate. Auditory learning is learning by listening, for example listening to a teaching during a lesson. An example of another stimulus would be inspiration from a former teacher because that teacher has had an influence a person and influenced them in a positive way, they now may practice or carried on learning what they were taught by that teach through their life growing up. TV programs that have educational influences can teach people something without them realizing they are been taught, because what they are watching they are interested in, they are paying a lot of attention to it, and if it is said in a fun way, or a way they can relate to it, it will stick in their minds. Theses learn are normally auditory or visual. Barriers of learning include setting; noise and lighting are important factors whilst learning, for example, in a very noisy environment someone would find it hard to concentrate. Active experimentation (exploring/ revising approaches) - this is the last stage in the cycle, this is the planning stage, what you will do next time differently, the person learns to deal with the different aspects differently from what they have learnt.

During the manic phase of this disorder, the patient may show excessive, unwarranted excitement or silliness, carrying jokes too far. They may also show poor judgement and recklessness and may be argumentative. They may speak rapidly, have unrealistic ideas, and jump from subject to subject. They may not be able to sleep or sit still for very long. These symptoms are last for a specific period of time lasting for a few days or even a few months. Hospitalization can often be necessary to keep the person from harming themselves and others. The other side of the bipolar is the depressive episode. Bipolar depressed patients often sleep more than usual and are lethargic. This contrasts with those with major depression, who usually has trouble sleeping and is agitated. During bipolar depressive episodes, a patient may also show irritability and withdrawal. Manic episodes can occur without depression, but this is very rare.

...Developing Effective Communication in Health and Social Care – Task 4 One-to-One In class, I participated in a one-to-one role-play with a fellow classmate. I played as a teacher and my peer played as a student who was being socially excluded by her classmates. She came to me one day really upset and explained that she was being socially excluded from the rest of the class. I suggested we go to a quiet room where we could talk by ourselves and I had to consider my approach carefully as I didn’t want to upset her even more. As part of my course, my class and I had to participate in a group event called Christmas cheer. This included us getting into groups to cook food which would be served to the elderly. We first had to decide what groups we would be in and this was done very easily and quickly This included our class getting into small groups and cooking food which the elderly would be served during this event. I was partnered up with four girls from my class who on several occasions I had to have a group discussion with. The first discussion we had to do is to discuss what we were going to cook. One of the girls decided to do scones whilst a few others wanted to do a gingerbread house. We finally decided on welsh cakes and then had to find a recipe for them. All of us found a recipe which we thought would be appropriate and they decided on a Mary Berry recipe as she was a famous cook. Me and one of the other girls was not happy about this as most people......

There are many things that a health care worker can do to provide a positive experience for the service user including; Respect the privacy of a service user: this could involve pulling the curtain around the individual whilst they are getting changed or putting a towel on them if/when they are having a bed bath. This will help the service user to feel that they have been respected and valued by the service provider. Be confidential: if the service provider is confidential and does not share information about the service user with others (who do not need to know) the service user will feel more positive and will feel safe with the service user, feeling like they can open up and do not have to keep secrets from them. Be Polite: if the service provider is polite then it shows the service user that they are respected, and that they service provider sees the service user as an equal and does not patronise them.

...A health service is a service that provides care and is under the NHS. For examples hospitals or a G.P. They provide treatments but also prevent illnesses through health promotions. A social care service is about providing support to individuals to help them get by and who ever needs it such as emotional support or practical support with daily living tasks. Statutory care is care that’s paid for and provided by the government and is welcome to everyone. For example, the children’s hospital. Private care is care that is paid for and isn’t funded by the government. People go private to get things such as scar deduction, moles and lumps removed or operations that they don’t want to wait a long time for. Voluntary care is care provided by charities which is free. Examples are places such royal society for the blind and st Luke’s hospice. Informal care is care provided by someone close such as a friend or family member. For example someone giving you a hot drink or soup when you’re ill. Private health insurance is when you pay for private health care each month instead of paying up front each time you go. It covers anything apart from pre-existing conditions such as diabetes. Primary care is the first point of contact for people with a health need and is usually provided in the community. Examples of primary care include a pharmacist, walk in centre, a GP, an optician and a dentist. Secondary care is a second or more specialist care, often in a hospital. You have to be......

...Unit 7- sociological perspectives for health and social care P1 – Explain the principal sociological perspectives Sociological Perspectives | Main Points | Criticisms | Functionalism | Functionalist believe that just as the body functions through the efficient interrelationship of major organs and has disease, so the different institutions in society each have particular contributions to make. They work together and use methods of social control to deal with deviant members or groups, to ensure that society functions smoothly. Parsons (1902-1979) saw society as a system made up of interrelated institutions, which contributed to its smooth running and continuity. He thought that the main role of an institution is to socialise individuals and ensure that they understood the underlying values of their society and behave in acceptable ways. Murdock(1897-1985) did a study of the family, examined over 250 societies and concluded that in all societies the family performed 4 functions: * Sexual function which was allowed for the expression of sexuality in an approved context * Reproductive function which provided stability for the rearing children * Socialisation included the responsibility of teaching children the acceptable ways of behaving in society * Economic function meant that food, shelter, and financial security had to be provided for the family membersParsons(1951) argued that the family had only two basic functions which were: * The primary socialisation of......

...they are aware of the things that I am doing so that they know what I should be working on as they are doing the same thing as me. A negative affect that they have on my learning is occasionally we spend a whole lesson going off topic and talking about what happened on our weekends which is something that can be discussed on the lunch breaks rather than the all important lessons. Furthermore another influence on my learning is my health. Health problems can influence my learning in different ways such as be tiredness, physical illness, or mental illness. Health issues could motivate me to work since it might make me more determined to show other people that being ill whether physically or mentally is not an answer for me to not do my work which could push me to excel more with my work than I would do usually. Health problems have a positive influence on me as if I am ill, I will most likely be at home which is where I get most of my work done well as I find doing coursework at college difficult due to noise and the distractions around me. Health problems can have a negative effect on me since if I was very physically ill, I would not have the energy to be able to do coursework. My learning style is a pragmatist since I like to get feedback from others about my work, I like to experiment and try things out and I would rather get on with tasks rather than talk about. The good learning situations from being a pragmatist is I have a clear link between thinking and what......

How people view each other will determine how people will respond/communicate with each other in and out of a workplace. At work it is always advised to be fully aware of our service users’ communication preferences and wishes. Having different cultural beliefs can have an impact on how we communicate with each other and also how we communicate with our service users. Therefore it is essential to know the service users’ values and culture background by reading care plans and talking and listening to them. When it comes to communication, a person’s beliefs can have an impact on how they interact with others. What might be deemed to be normal in one’s culture can be seen as inappropriate in another and different cultures interpret non-verbal and verbal messages and humour differently. For example maintaining eye contact English culture implies that one is paying attention to what is being said and they will be considered as being honest whereas in my culture it is seen as being disrespectful especially if talking to someone to is older than me. In health and social care it is important to know our......

...P4- You are in the activity room of the care home and one of your clients starts experiencing severe chest pains and falls to the floor. They are having a cardiac arrest. A cardiac arrest happens when your heart stops pumping blood around our body. The first thing you should do in this emergency is check for danger. You should see if they have fallen on an object that needs to be moved or if there is anyone in the room that needs to be removed. Once you are sure the area is safe you must call for help. Call other workers to the scene and call 999 immediately so that a professional can reach you as soon as possible. The worker should be first aid trained and therefore should know how to perform CPR. Even if you haven’t been trained in CPR with rescue breathing, you can still use hands-only CPR.   You must maintain a patient's dignity at all times. Block off the area and get anyone out of the room that does not need to be there. Although the client may not be conscious you should take their personal needs and wishes into consideration. They may be embarrassed by the incident and may not want others to see them. Before you begin CPR you should tilt the patient's head back so that the airways are clear and take their pulse to check if they are breathing. In this case, the patient is not breathing. Firstly, you should perform chest compressions. This will pump the heart by external cardiac massage to keep the circulation going until the ambulance arrives. To do this you......

...Unit 5 Assignment 1, Anatomy and Physiology for Health and Social Care Nucleus The majority of cells in the human body contain a nucleus but not all nuclei are the same as there are many variations. The nucleus has the largest spherical structure within the cell, and is known as the ‘brain of the cell’ because the nucleus controls all of the cell’s activity, such as: reproduction of cells and movement. The nucleus contains strands of DNA (chromosomes) in the form of a double helix. Within the human body there are cells that have no use for a nucleus such as red blood cells and cells that contain multiple nuclei such as muscles, because they are more active. Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is a thick, clear semi fluid, gel like substance that is enclosed by the cell membrane and covers the entire cell. The cytoplasm contains other organelles, such as Golgi apparatus, mitochondria and lysosome etc. This organelle is mainly made up of water, salts and proteins, and is where the cells, enzyme controlled, chemical reactions take place. These reactions are most commonly referred to as metabolism. Mitochondria Mitochondria are rod shaped organelles with a double membrane that are scattered around the cell in the cytoplasm. The three components of mitochondria are: the outer membrane, inner membrane and the matrix. The outer membrane acts like a skin, keeping the structure. The inner membrane is folded over multiple times to create a layered structure, which......

...Care settings are usually called residentials. There are many residential settings. Including those for elder people, or people with disabilities, and looked-after children. It is important that health and safety is taken very seriously in these settings. You have to be sure that any residents can escape in case of a fire. And you also have to make sure that they don't get in the way of other people or cause danger. It is important to inform peers and other residents about health and safety and what to do in case anything could go wrong. In some settings people can come in and go out whenever they want. But, in a setting where there are people who may be confused or young children, this would be inappropriate. It would be a bad idea because road traffic accidents could occur. If anyone is to go out the staff must know so that the individual can be brought back safely. Hospital Health care settings contain a lot of hazards. The hazards particular to the hospital include things like microbes infecting wounds during or after a surgery. There can also be radiation from x rays and radiotherapy and drugs which can be addictive . Another risk which can be found in a hospital is anesthetic gases these can be harmful if used in the wrong way so they should be carefully administered. Also hypodermic needles have to be disposed of safely or someone else can be infected. Fires can also cause problems in a health setting. Big organizations such as hospitals usually have zones......
