Peter Jones (2) Posted September 20, 2004 Share Posted September 20, 2004 Hello, In health and social care one of the key problems faced is the need to ensure: * all care problems are identified, * the person is viewed as a whole, not just as a diagnosis. * care is planned from several perspectives: the patient, their carers, the practitioner, and service. * those perspectives can all be represented. Health and social care are no longer the sole preserve of the clinic or waiting lounge. As recent events have shown - diet and younger people, SARS, AIDS,... health is a National and International concern, the environment also begging for our attention. We are all so very linked, interdependent: vulnerable. In the 21st Century it is not only health that needs tools to cope with complexity and conflict. The world desperately needs them too. A tool that: * disarms yet empowers * is simple yet complex * local yet global * applies to individuals and populations * is neutral or activist * is able to represent and disseminate * engages and educates * and transcends beliefs and borders... Surely, no such framework exists? While not a panacea in itself, I would like to present an idea to this community - whose time has surely come? Developed in health and social care this tool has potential far beyond, given the complexity of the problems we now face. Introducing: Hodges' Health Career - Care Domains - Model (h2cm) h2cm: help-2c-more - help-2-listen - help-2-care http://www.p-jones.demon.co.uk Our links pages cover each care domain. For example - Sociological domain links: http://www.p-jones.demon.co.uk/links3.htm Political: http://www.p-jones.demon.co.uk/linksIV.htm I hope this is relevant to you. Yours sincerely.
