4.1c Explain how practices that support equality and inclusion reduce the likelihood of discrimination

There are several things you can do to support equality and inclusion and reduce the likelihood of discrimination. You should always provide person-centred care as this respects the idea of diversity. This means you should take the time to understand the many aspects of an individual so you can meet their needs.

You should also treat all individuals uniquely based on their character, rather than treating all individuals in the same way. Whatever you may think, you shouldn’t let judgemental beliefs affect the care and support you provide to individuals. You should also follow any agreed ways of working in your workplace to create an environment free from discrimination.

If you see discriminatory practice in your workplace, you should challenge it. Finally, you should work in an inclusive way that sees the positive input that all individuals can make to society. It is your duty to promote equality, diversity, and inclusion, and preventing discrimination is a big part of this.
