2.2 Using a mind map to identify key themes

Last week you learned that the next step in writing an essay is to use the questions identified when analysing the task to select and take notes from relevant readings.

Fred read about the three care settings and found the answer to the essay question: carers should pay attention to the difference between public and private spaces because this ensures quality of care. This is the reason why private and public spaces should be recognised.

He also found that, due to different priorities, carers sometimes disregard patients’ private spaces and individual needs, and this is poor practice that negatively affects quality of care.

Fred jotted some notes in the margin of the course materials and then used the mind map below to reorganise them. The mind map identifies different spaces. It also shows how different priorities lead some carers to either respect or disregard patients’ private spaces and indicates where this leads to good or poor practice.
