What is covered the care certificate standard 4?
The care certificate standard 4 covers the concepts of equality, diversity, inclusion and discrimination in the provision of health and social care services.
What is equality?
Equality is about treating people alike according to their needs. You should make sure that everyone is given equality of opportunity. For example, you may need to provide information in different formats (for example, Braille) or make sure there is access to a building for an individual in a wheelchair.
What is diversity?
Diversity can be described as ‘difference’. All individuals are different, and the many different parts of a person’s character and identity make them unique.
What is inclusion?
Inclusion is ‘being included within either a group or society as a whole’. Inclusion links with diversity and equality. It is important to understand someone’s differences so that you can include them and treat them equally and fairly. People can feel excluded if they are not able to join in with activities.
Excluding people because of their differences is known as ‘discrimination’. All workers in health and social care must make sure that they work inclusively to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to take part when they want to. This is especially true about people taking part in their care and support so that it is truly centred on them as a person.
What is discrimination?
Discrimination broadly refers to actions that are often based on a person’s negative attitude towards others. In human social affairs, discrimination is treatment or consideration of or making a distinction in favour of or against, a person based on the group, class, or category to which the person is perceived to belong rather than on individual attributes.
This includes treatment of an individual or group, based on their actual or perceived membership in a certain group or social category, “in a way that is worse than the way people are usually treated”. It involves the group’s initial reaction or interaction going on to influence the individual’s actual behaviour towards the group leader or the group, restricting members of one group from opportunities or privileges that are available to another group, leading to the exclusion of the individual or entities based on logical or irrational decision making.
Why is this care certificate standard 4 training course important?
Equality and diversity are essential components of health and social care. Good equality and diversity practices make sure that the services provided to people are fair and accessible to everyone. They ensure that people are treated as equals, that people get the dignity and respect they deserve and that their differences are celebrated. Equality and diversity shouldn’t be seen as bonus benefits to your health or social care setting but more as integral constituents.
In a health and social care environment, equality and diversity must be at the heart of what we do. Our patients and service users are individual people, and we should always strive to ensure that their diverse needs are met and ensure that they have equal access to the services we provide. This is particularly important for adults in need who, because of a disability, illness or their age, are unable to take adequate care of themselves and keep themselves from harm.
