The 10 Concluding Activities are designed to support reflective practice in each of the ten learning units. You must complete all 10 Concluding Activities to evidence you have completed the Flying Start NHS programme. As you complete the units, you are creating your evidence to support your NHS KSF development review and pay progression at the Foundation Gateway.
The aim of this learning unit is to enable you to recognise and value diversity; to consider patient/client autonomy in your work; to consider your role and work setting from a person centred perspective; and to ensure positive behaviour towards patients, carers, colleagues and the wider health and social care team. This includes considering the ‘protected characteristics’ (age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity).
The skills which you should be able to demonstrate are the ability to:
- identify the impact of different cultures, values and choices upon the delivery of healthcare provision
- understand, respect and value all factors contributing to a positive experience of receiving healthcare for patients and families
- demonstrate how working collaboratively with the multi-professional health and social care team can improve the patient journey
Make a summary entry in your portfolio which demonstrates how you have achieved the aim. Remember to document and discuss your learning needs in this area
