Critically Reflect On The Ways In Which Your Own Life Course Had Affected How You Work In Or Use Health And Social Care

1833 words - 8 pages
Working in health and social care sector might be too challenging as it involves dealing with different people from different backgrounds. Sometimes it is beneficial to take a life course perspective as it gives the understanding of people’s negative attitude towards their health and wellbeing. As we reach the process of getting old also known as ageing, we all have a life course to reflect own. Reflecting on the ways in which my own life course had affected how I work in the health and social care sector helped me as an individual in better engagement with service users of health and social care. Before reflecting back on my own experiences of working in care and support services, I have to define the meaning of life course and mention five principles of life course.

    Can We Say No? The Challenge of Rationing Health Care Thirteen years ago Bill Clinton became president partly because he promised to do something about rising health care costs. Although Clinton's chances of reforming the US health care system looked quite good at first, the effort soon ran aground. Since then a combination of factors—the unwillingness of other politicians to confront the insurance and other lobbies that so successfully frustrated the Clinton effort, a temporary remission in the growth of health care spending as HMOs briefly managed to limit cost increases, and the general
