Enabling Service Users in the UK to promote good health.
Introduction and background notes (vocational context)
As a social worker who works in a local authority in East London you are required to have an understanding of what the influences are on the health of the individuals in your community and who you work it. You have recently come across a case in which two people could have benefited from an early intervention from health professionals, teachers, their parents and the wider community.
Jack just moved to the UK as a refugee. He comes from Darfur, Sudan. Jack was recently moved to a care home because of his poorly managed type 2 diabetes. His leg was recently amputated because of his condition. They have 6 children, who are staying with their mom in a council house. The reason they have many children is that according to his culture, he doesn’t believe in family planning. His wife who suffers from depression has not yet found a job, so the family depends on social benefits as their income. They are both smokers and drinkers and obese. This will be a reflection on a real life situation from health and social care practice, so all names and information that could identify the clients, will be changed in accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council guidelines to protect patient confidentiality (2004).
Your report must focus on the issue of either 1) how the social-economic factors faced by Jack and Deborah influence the health of Jack and Deborah 2) how their predicament could affect their ability or ability of their children to access health care services.
The main focus of your discussion throughout the assignment must be on Health Promotion and should relate to the case study where necessary. Certain models of health promotion and approaches should be addressed to see what could be useful when trying to promote someone like Jack and Deborah to make a lifestyle change to benefit their own, and in this case their children
