User: explain how to overcome barriers to communication in health and social care

Weegy: If you spend more time listening than speaking or barking orders, the barriers of effective communication will begin to break down and open up a two-way communication structure in your organization.

User: Explain how individuals from different backgrounds may use communication methods in different ways

Weegy: People from different backgrounds and cultures often have their own gestures and hand signs that they use to insult one another or express thanks. [ [ It's always good to find out about a particular culture's customs before visiting so that you don't accidentally offend them. ] ]

User: Explain how individuals from different backgrounds may use communication methods in different ways in health and social care

Weegy: Careful consideration needs to be taken when communicating with people from different backgrounds so as not to offend or confuse them. Some countries may speak more formally, others informally. [ So when we speak to people we must be aware not to be over/too familiar. When we communicate with people from different backgrounds we should use the right intonation (gestures and body language) so that they know that we are being friendly towards them and not just 'going through the motions' when dealing with them. The speed of which we speak could hinder others to misinterpret us, thereby causing misunderstandings, and we should always use plain English rather than jargon that only people who are familiar to the profession can understand as this can lead to misunderstanding. Some phrases that we use every day may be offensive to people of certain cultures or religions and this is all the more reason that we treat everyone equally, fairly and without bias. Also different hand gestures mean different things depending on the country that the person is from so what may be a friendly gesture to us may be an insulting one to them. The language barrier doesn’t only apply to different cultures and countries, it can also apply to areas of the UK. A word we use in the north east can have a totally different meaning in Bristol or Glasgow. A person who has a background of poverty may not be familiar with more complex conversations due to poor education and so it is important that we speak to them at a level that are comfortable with so as not to intimidate them. ]
