What is discriminatory practice in health and social care?
Considering this, what is a discriminatory practice?
Discriminatory practice is discriminating against an individual's age, colour, culture, disability, ethnic, gender, medical condition, nationality, appearance, race, religion, sexual identity, sexual orientation, or social class.
Subsequently, question is, why is discrimination important in health and social care? In a health and social care environment, it's important that equality and diversity are at the heart of what you do. 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.
Also question is, what is anti discriminatory practice in health and social care?
Anti-discriminatory practice. Discrimination is often the underlying cause behind lack of inclusion. It means treating a person or group unfairly because of a particular characteristic, such as gender, disability, age, ethnic origin, skin colour, nationality, sexuality and/or religious belief.
What are the principles of anti discriminatory practice?
References. Equality Act 2010 – Anti discrimination covering six main equality strands: age, disability, gender, race, religious belief and sexual orientation.
