How disability might affect people’s access, perceptions and experiences of healthcare services.

1. Critically consider how disability might affect people’s access, perceptions and experiences of healthcare services. Referring to the evidence base and using examples from your own clinical practice identify how nurses can address issues which might arise. (25%)

2. The NMC Code (2018) requires that nurses:

“act as an advocate for the vulnerable, challenging poor practice and discriminatory attitudes and behaviour relating to their care”

With reference to your own clinical experiences and with reference to relevant literature, critically consider how nurses can meet this requirement and what challenges exist professionally, and in society which might make this goal difficult to achieve. (25%)

3. Critically consider how effective Inter-Professional Working might help to enhance partnership working between staff and patients/service-users leading to improved health outcomes? Give examples from practice of effective Inter-Professional Working, (this can include working with non-statutory services) making reference to literature on the subject and citing examples of key reports that have illustrated where poor practice was implicated in untoward events.
