Part B – Case study questions

Purpose

You will demonstrate a sound knowledge of the unit requirements in your responses.

Instructions to the candidate

All questions must be answered satisfactorily for Part B to be completed satisfactorily.

There is no restriction on the length of the question responses, or time restriction in completing the assessment.

You must complete all questions unassisted by the assessor or other personnel, but may refer to reference material as needed.

Resources required

The question responses section is the only resource required for this section to be completed.

Assessment conditions

Skills must have been demonstrated in a relevant workplace that provides personal support services to people, with the addition of simulations and scenarios where the full range of contexts and situations have not been provided in the workplace. These are situations relating to emergency or unplanned procedures where assessment in these circumstances would be unsafe, impractical or threatens the dignity of the person. The following conditions must be met for the unit:

• Use of suitable facilities and resources including:

­ individualised plans specifying different personal support needs

­ equipment outlined in individualised plans

• Modelling of industry operating conditions including involvement of real people when simulating the provision of service and equipment use

Overall, assessment must involve some real interactions with people who require personal support. Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.

Reasonable adjustment

If you do not wish to respond to the questions in written form, an interview may be used as an alternative approach if negotiated with your assessor.

Case study (questions 1–8)

Jun-Wei Yu is a 25-year-old man of Chinese heritage with Down syndrome. He lives in a group home supported by personal care workers, employed by a large disability support organisation.

Jun-Wei is able to do some of his personal care tasks with prompting. He can shower himself with reminders about proper washing and with assistance to dry his back, feet and hair; he can brush his own teeth, but also needs to be reminded to do this. With assistance, Jun-Wei can select appropriate clothing; he can dress himself but cannot tie shoelaces. He can shave with an electric shaver.

Jun-Wei loves chips and lollies. Staff must plan meals for Jun-Wei and other residents to ensure they are well-nourished. Jun-Wei can peel vegetables and make a sandwich without help. Jun-Wei does not understand the different denominations of money or how much things cost. However, he likes to have money in his pocket to spend at the shops. He can move around independently but cannot catch public transport or walk to places without being accompanied. Sometimes he wanders out of the house or away from his group, thinking he can find his way back when he wants to.

Jun-Wei also suffers from asthma that is sometimes brought on by exercise or stress, and eczema that is sometimes brought on by stress and heat. He has puffers and creams that he must be reminded to use. Those who know Jun-Wei well can understand him when he talks but strangers or those he doesn’t know well find him difficult to understand. This is partly due to him mumbling when he feels shy. Jun-Wei will sometimes hug and stroke people he feels comfortable with or when he is very happy.

CS Question 1

Choose two areas of personal care; for example, washing and mobility. For each area, identify any equipment, assistance (care processes) and aids that would be required to support Jun Wei, ensuring that these are appropriate for his level of ability.
