Ethical principles are the principles which provide standards on which it is based on judgments in relation to ethical theories.

So the doctor must balance the benefit of that treatment by providing the medication quickly.
2: putting the individual at the heart of service provision:
Another way to promote anti- discriminatory practice is when a care worker must promote equality, belief, values and respect the rights of the service users by putting all the individuals at the heart of service provision such as the individuals needs must be met and achieved so that it makes them happier and empowered in all areas. Even it will increase their self-esteem and self-confidence and change the way they see themselves For example: in a care home if the patient wants his dinner at 6pm then his needs must be met. By doing this he will feel his is important and is given priority.
3: supporting individuals to express their needs and preferences:
Another way to promote anti-discriminatory practice is service provider must support all the individuals to express their needs and preferences. The service provider must do this to encourage the patient to speak out what they feel and would prefer to do, whether it is their dietary plan, medical treatment or even wearing the clothes they want to wear. This can be done by communicating with them in a nice way and interacting with them on a regular basic so that they know that the service user is supported by the service provider on the right way.

By doing this it makes the individual feel comfortable and empowered.
5: Putting active support consistent with the beliefs, culture and preferences of the individual

Another example would be a service user who comes in the day center having a disability then the service provider must make sure that the service user is listened and support is given when they require like advice and guidance, medical...
