Introduction and background notes (vocational context)
As a social worker who works in a local authority in East London you are required to have an understanding of what the influences are on the health of the individuals in your community and who you work it. You have recently come across a case in which two people could have benefited from an early intervention from health professionals, teachers, their parents and the wider community.
Task 1: LO1 Understand the socio-economic influences on health.
Peter just moved to the UK as a refugee. He comes from Darfur, Sudan. Peter was recently moved to a care home because of his poorly managed type 2 diabetes. His leg was recently amputated because of his condition. Sarah and Peter have 6 children, who are staying with their mom in a council estate house. The reason they have many children is that according to his culture, he doesn’t believe in family planning. His wife who suffers from depression has not yet found a job, so the family depends on social benefits as their income. They are both smokers and drinkers and obese.
Your report must focus on the issue of either 1) how the social-economic factors faced by Peter and Sarah influence their health 2) how their predicament could affect their ability or ability of their children to access healthcare services.
The main focus of your discussion throughout the assignment must be on Health Promotion and should relate to the case study where necessary. Certain models of health promotion and approaches should be addressed to see what could be useful when trying to promote someone like Sarah and Peter to make a lifestyle change to benefit their own, and in this case their children.
You will also then look at Government Initiatives, policies and strategies surrounding this case scenario, and any ethical issues that arise from this situation and discuss this in relation to Sarah and Peter and also their children.

Task 3: LO3 Understand factors which influence health promotion
You have been approached by a Health Promotion organisation to produce a referenced Webpage related to supplying relevant and up to date information to the Public on factors which influence health promotion. A lot of attention is focused on people’s behaviour – their decisions to smoke, drink, and over-eat and so on – with strong messages about the changes needed to become healthier. But people’s behaviour is influenced by circumstances and events, friends and family, education, job prospects, income, housing and environment as well as certain industries.
You must include the following in your referenced webpage
3.1 Identify the theories of health behavior and explain how health beliefs are translated into behavior. Use the Stages of Change model to support your answer. [P3.1]
3.2 Discuss the possible effects of potential conflicts with the local industry on health promotion. To answer this question you should focus on the role of the Tobacco, Alcohol and Food industries. [P3.2, M3]
3.3 Explain with examples the importance of providing relevant health related information to the public [P3.3]
Ø To achieve M3, principles about the conflicts with local industry on health promotion as related to the case study have been applied and justified with examples.
