Learning outcome: 4. Be able to implement and promote active participation
Assessment criteria: 4.3 Demonstrate how active participation can address the holistic needs of an individual
- The holistic needs of an individual encompass all the aspects that contribute to their quality of life
- This can include physical health, mental health, spirituality, financial wellbeing etc.
- The use of active participation means that the individual can make decisions based on their holistic needs rather than just a tiny area of their lives
- For example, an individual that wants to play rugby will understand that this activity has risks to their physical health but the benefits it brings to their mental health and social relationships may far outweigh these risks for this particular individual
