Explain how discrimination impacts service users in health and social care

Explain how discrimination, labelling and stigma impact on service users in health and social care. (1,500 words) In answering this question you should pay attention to the learning outcomes for the module, which are: Knowledge of the inter-relationship between social position and health. Awareness of the impact of ill health on social roles and relationships. An appreciation of the discrimination experienced by specific groups as a result of illness and disability. You will need to provide and discuss definitions for key terms in the question. These should be taken from academic sources (not dictionaries) and referenced using the Harvard referencing system. Suggested format: Introductory paragraph: explain how you plan to address the question. After writing your essay, review this section to ensure that you have done what you said you would. Main body: Give one or two definitions of the key terms (discrimination, labelling and stigma) and discuss the limitations and implications of these. Give examples of how these factors affect different service user groups. Use and reference direct quotes from your sources, and reference when you paraphrase their arguments. You should reference everything except your own original ideas. Conclusion: summarise what you have written and draw a conclusion, for example about how your knowledge might impact on your future behaviour towards people, or how your views have changed. This is a short assignment so you will need to be focussed, but please write in Standard English not in note form. Please use academic texts (books and journal articles) as the basis for your assignment. Remember you should not plagiarise (copy without referencing.)
