Assessment 3
PART A
1. Read the case study and then answer questions a, b and c.
Case study
Julie visits Kostas. Kostas has had his friends over visiting the house, and they’ve been admiring his vegetable garden. Con, his mate, has reminded Kostas that the local agricultural show is on the following weekend and has kindly offered to enter some of Kostas’ vegetables in for judging at the show.
Kostas tells Julie that he would love to attend the show and see his vegetables on display, but has no way of getting to the show venue and is too embarrassed to ask his friends for help.
Questions
a. How can Julie provide information and assistance to Kostas that will allow him to access services to attend the show? (50–100 words)
b. How will this access to support services help meet Kostas’ needs? (50–100 words)
c. What could Julie say or do that will assist to build Kostas’ confidence and self-esteem to attend the show? (50–100 words)
2. CareShore Health and Wellbeing has recently employed bi-lingual staff members from Croatia and South Africa. How could you promote diversity in your workplace relationships with these new staff members?
Identify two strategies you could use to promote diversity in the workplace and complete the table below with your answers. (We have given you one example.)
Example strategy
Ask your new colleagues questions about their culture and experiences
Strategy 1 (10–20 words) 1.

Strategy 2 (10––20 words)

PART B
3. Read the case study and then answer the question that follows.
Case study
Ife is a new care support worker at CareShore Health and Wellbeing and is assigned to work with Julie.
Ife is from an African background in which a cultural practice is that you pay respect to people in authority by not looking them in the eye and not speaking back to the person. Julie is experiencing difficulties communicating with Ife as, when Julie is asking Ife to do something, Ife doesn’t make eye contact and doesn’t speak before she walks away and performs the task.
Julie has not encountered this social behaviour before and is not sure what it means, but she is finding it very frustrating. Julie speaks to her supervisor and asks her for feedback. The supervisor lets Julie know about Ife’s cultural background and why she behaves the way she does. Julie goes away and does some further research about Ife’s culture to understand her better.
Now Julie feels she has a good understanding of Ife and feels she can work with her better and be less frustrated. Julie makes an effort to speak with Ife in a manner that is sensitive to her cultural needs.
Question
Identify two best practice strategies that Julie took in the scenario above to resolve the cultural conflict with her colleague (10–20 words for each action identified).
4. Read the case study and complete the related table.
Case study
Mrs Carey is a client who lives in a low care/hostel unit that is part of an aged care facility. She lives alone in a one-bedroom unit that has a small courtyard. The courtyard has grass that needs mowing and a garden that needs watering. She owns a cat (Eric), a bird (Monty) and a fish (Norman).
Mrs Carey uses a manual wheelchair for mobility and she can push herself around in her own home, but for longer distances, such as on community visits, she needs someone to push the chair for her. Mrs Carey has full cognitive abilities and is able to read her own mail and pay her own bills. She has learned to do internet banking.
Decide whether the tasks listed below could be done by Mrs Carey, her care support worker or another person or service. Identify who you believe could complete the task in the table below and provide a brief explanation for your answer.

The client, Mrs Zhu, speaks little English and your supervisor is aware that Mrs Zhu may not be able to understand the discussion. Mrs Zhu doesn’t have a family member or other advocate to assist her, so your supervisor has decided to engage the services of a professional interpreter.
List two factors which must be taken into consideration prior to engaging a professional interpreter. Explain your reasons.
Factor (10–20 words) Explanation (up to 50 words)

8. The next time Julie visits Mrs Zhu, she notices that Mrs Zhu’s forearm is heavily bruised and she seems very withdrawn and of low spirits. This is not like Mrs Zhu, who is normally happy to see Julie and always greets her with a smile.
Julie asks Mrs Zhu if her arm is sore and how she got the bruise. Mrs Zhu doesn’t make eye contact with Julie and pulls her arm away and looks embarrassed. Julie doesn’t want to press her for an answer, but is concerned as the bruises look nasty and observes that Mrs Zhu is not her normal happy self.
a. What step should Julie take next and why? (50–100 words)
b. Mrs Zhu’s bruised arm could have been a result of a slip in the bathroom, but could also be an indicator of abuse. Is it within Julie’s scope of role to investigate the injury further? Explain your answer. (50 words)

You have another conversation with David and he explains how distressed he is that his dietary requirements were not met on a number of occasions. You observe that David has lost weight since the last time you saw him.
