Treatment Essays


Covenantal Nomism

at the time (e.g. those about circumcision, food, etc.) were not relevant in determining who received treatment as God's people and who did not. This represented a clear break in beliefs and patterns between Judaism and Christianity [footnoteRef:1]. [1: Dunn, James D. G. The Partings Of The Ways. London: SCM, 2006.] Hagner speaks about much the same topic but takes his own approach. He echoes the general idea of what nomism represents when he says "Judaism was not and is not a religion where acceptance with God is earned through the merit of righteousness based on works." In other… Continue Reading...

Quantitative Research

research burdens and advantages. Respondents must be accorded fair treatment. Study subject selection must be equitable, to ensuring sharing of burdens and advantages at societal as well as individual levels. Data Collection Procedure and Appropriateness of Data Analysis Methods Identify the data collection procedures used and provide a description of how the data was collected (2) Response: The data collection procedures used in this study included a combination of in-depth interviewing and focus groups. An isolated and quiet room in a Pittsburgh cafe was the setting chosen for focus group meetings. The data was collected for the study in… Continue Reading...

Liberation Theology Meets Humankind Embrace

few shared goals and principles. For example, numerous social scientific scholars and approaches convey preferential treatment and upliftment of the disadvantaged -- social theology agrees. However, the distinction is that, the latter can come up with its own assessments based on its rich source materials (like the Scripture) to pursue the above strategies. That is, social theology requires no social scientific theory for verifying the fact that these strategies must be pursued, or for understanding the reason behind so much poverty in the world, or for ascertaining how to adopt strategies for improving the lives of the underprivileged. Rich… Continue Reading...

Hipaa Ethics

and steps followed when doing so. 2. Malpractice claims: Patient lawsuits against physicians for diagnostic or treatment errors. A negligence case involves a patient or family member(s) believing a practitioner harmed the patient by failing to perform a necessary action or performing an inappropriate one. 3. Medical assistants are required to meet medical assisting standards to practically apply legal concepts. The American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA) states that medical assistants must hold to legal concepts by: maintaining confidentiality, preparing and maintaining medical records, practicing within their capabilities' and training's scope, using proper guidelines during information release, documenting accurately, etc.… Continue Reading...

Social Bonding Theory

society protects the offenders. Meanwhile, according to the gender inequality theory, females are given differential treatment by criminal justice authorities and laws, but this difference is actually to their advantage (Stinchcombe, 2005; Gosselin, 2005). Lastly, considerable evidence exists of the fact that crime has potentially heterogeneous, and not homogeneous, causes, and the heterogeneity depends on population type, unit used for comparison, and crime type. The ideal model would be applicable to all kinds of crime, comparison units, and populations. But no available theory achieves this ideal. All current crime theories are to be regarded as partial. Researchers need to… Continue Reading...

Postoperative Nursing Management

that are present between the nursing staff and the patient can add a layer of complexity to any treatment plan by inhibiting communications. Since cultural factors have been long recognized to be an important consideration in developing care plans, there have been various models that been constructed to help mitigate culturally-based challenges. One such model, the Campinha-Bacote's model of cultural competence in health care delivery, is defined as process of building Cultural Competence in the Delivery of Healthcare Services and is commonly remember by the mnemonic ASKED (awareness, skills, knowledge, encounters and desire) (Ingram, 2012). This model states that… Continue Reading...

How Does Heroin Impact a Caucasian Family

issues, they may also play a vital role in ensuring successful treatment of the addict. Caucasian communities are increasingly accepting family therapy; more Caucasian families are now subscribing to the enrolment of two or more family members in joint counseling as well as therapy sessions. Caucasian families are mostly patriarchal, with a large number of Caucasian households being physically and emotionally sustained by females. A majority of substance abusers may be emotionally attached to their mother figures and mothers. Hence, the recognition and successful involvement of Caucasian mothers (and other influential women in the family) as key resources for… Continue Reading...

Violence Against Women in Macho Paradox

Women and men are two parts of the human race. Men are important to society just as women are. However, because of the social structure of many cultures and society, men appear as the dominant, superior sex. This leads to the belief that men must control women, dominate them in order to be seen as 'real men'. Katz explore in his novel the need to remove such belief systems and create gender equality to end violence against women and create a balanced society. Domestic violence is an issue many people face on a daily basis. However, in Katz book, The… Continue Reading...

The eighth part of the ERA covers leaves that an employee may or may not be entitled to including maternity leave, adoption leave, shared parental leave, general parental leave, paternity leave and the like. There is also talk about flexible working arrangements and summaries including the statutory right to request a variation with one's contract, the employer's duties when it comes to the above and the complaint system… Continue Reading...

Should Clinicians Use Evidence Based Practice

a concept that emerged in the field of medicine to help lessen mistakes or errors during treatment. This concept seeks to do so through ensuring clinical decisions are grounded on the best available research evidence. Since its emergence, the concept of evidence-based practice has become common in the medical field and is constantly used to help improve patient outcomes. The tremendous success of this concept in medicine is attributable to its integration of the best available research evidence, clinical judgment and expertise, and patient preferences and values. Given its success in the field of medicine, evidence-based practice is being… Continue Reading...

specification and enforcement of tough and stringent rules regarding the treatment of employees. In particular, these rules have to be in tandem with those obligated by the government. However, it will be imperative to move past just attempts simply to attain compliance with legal regulations. Another action to be undertaken is getting rid of the criteria of ambiguous selection and promotion. It is imperative that individuals will only face stereotyping unless the organization gives out such a justification (Brown, 1997). Another significant action to be undertaken is assessing the numbers of the minorities and individuals within the organization. This… Continue Reading...

Discrimination Case Analysis

definitions to racism and have focused on disparate impact and differential treatment. Their definitions can be crystallized into differential treatment occurring when individuals are accorded unequal treatment because of their race and disparate impact occurring when individuals are subject to the same treatment based on specific predefined procedures and rules, but where the procedures and rules are structured in favor of one group (Devah Pager & Hana Shepherd, 2008). Issues to Resolve Where there is a history of discriminative practices, an exchange like the one between Dillon and Hope is just one of many that have happened. Jack should… Continue Reading...

The Range of Possible Actions and the Teaching Practice Implications I would advise teacher B. to evolve a way of learning how to disagree with the school head and still maintain a healthy working relationship. Principals are impressed with teachers who are focused on their duties at school and those that are willing to carry an extra load just to make the school better. Principals also hold in high esteem and trust teachers who are courageous enough to disagree with them and explain their disagreements… Continue Reading...

Black and White Binary Central to Race Discussion

social organizations -- for example, governmental organizations, schools, courts of law and banks, -- contributing negative treatment to a group of individuals instituted on their race. It can exist in the workplace when it comes to a job promotion. The supervisor can choose to pick another employee because of their race over somebody else. It also involves disparate treatment which means that a boss treats an employee in a different way than other staffs who were in the same circumstances. This can be illegal, depending on the conditions. An example would be that two workers, Marla, who is an… Continue Reading...

Nursing Practitioner

ambulatory and acute care settings. NPs are engaged in the chronic or acute episodic ailment assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management. They are specialists in the areas of illness prevention and health promotion, and perform the tasks of ordering, performing, overseeing and interpreting lab and diagnostic tests, prescribing non-pharmacologic treatment and pharmacological mediators, and educating and advising their patients (American Association of Nurse Practitioners, 2015). History of the Nurse Practitioner Role, in General The demand for individuals providing primary care in the nation grew with the launch of the Medicaid and Medicare initiatives, developed after the enactment of the 1965… Continue Reading...

Hiv and Aids

For a healthy long life after infection, the right treatment should be taken correctly and side effects of treatment addressed promptly. Basic Facts about AIDS AIDS is an acronym for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The syndrome can also be referred to as late-stage HIV or advanced HIV infection. Someone suffering from AIDS may contract several conditions like thrush, TB, cytomegalovirus, toxoplasmosis and pneumonia. An individual's risk of developing some chronic… Continue Reading...

Public Health Case Study

is contrary to nurses, physicians and other clinical healthcare workers whose chief focus is treatment after a person gets injured or diagnosed with a health problem. Furthermore, public health strives towards bridging the healthcare gap. Public health endeavors largely aim at fostering healthcare accessibility, equity, and quality (CDC Foundation, 2016). The population health-individual relationship is constructed partly on medicine's general categorization into public health and clinical medicine. This represents an irony at the public health domain's core -- an ethical struggle between the population's good and that of the individual. One cannot simply explain such conflict away. But, under… Continue Reading...

Treatment and Counseling for Low Self Esteem

including abstract beliefs to thoughts, feelings and actions that occur every minute (Fennell, 1997). Cognitive Behavior Therapy/ treatment Case Study A female Caucasian who is currently fresh on college said that she came to counseling because she had been caught in possession of alcohol in the college dorm. She explained that although her friends in the dorm at the time were drunk, she was not. She said she only drank to follow suit. She said that she found college stressful compared to high school where it was smooth for her. Apart from the high study demands, it was hard to make… Continue Reading...

Permanent Supportive Housing for the Homeless

does not compromise on the psychiatric values and goals associated with substance abuse treatment and/or mental illness interventions (Tsemberis et al., 2004). Conclusion The intervention that is needed to address the issue of homeless persons suffering from mental illness and what to do with them so as to reduce costs to the community and provide a stable environment for them so that they may live with a higher quality of life is evident in the Housing First program and others of its nature. In short, the answer to the problem is PSH -- permanent supportive housing (Tsemberis et al.,… Continue Reading...

Patient Named Eliza

Eliza has not indicated any life stressors. Her father, Burt, drives a truck for a living, whereas her mom, Joan, is an elementary school secretary. While the father-daughter relationship appears to be quite strong, Eliza appears to have issues that need working on, when it comes to her relationship with her mother. As of now, Eliza is not taking any mental health medication.  Psychosocial assessment forms a key component of all nursing evaluation, as it… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Brown Vs Board Of Education

all diverse groups want to and should become like the dominant group in power, that equal treatment means same treatment and that managing diversity just requires the changing of certain people rather than the organizational culture as a whole. The authors go on to state that otherness being seen as a source of weakness or lack of superiority is clearly specious. However, it happens to be an idea that is pervasive even if it is not uttered out loud at all times (Loden & Rosener, 1991). As far as what Kennedy could have done (or done better) given what… Continue Reading...

Argument Against Portuguese New World Involvement

Men Folly The work of Restall covers a lot of ground when it comes to classic literature. One of the approaches and treatments that is common in such literature is the concept of "great men." Of course, the topic is a bit silly and under-informed nowadays. This brief essay will cover why precisely this is the case and it will use Restall's work in Seven Myths as the main sources of analysis to make that case. While the use of "great men" in classic literature is to be expected and customary, an obvious modern case can and should be made… Continue Reading...

Gender Equality

not accept the change and leave. In that way, organizations doing the right thing and mandating acceptance and equal treatment of all people (including along gender and sexuality lines) can only do so much. That being said, these organizations doing this more and more over time will lead to social change eventually and the bigots will become more and more of a minority. However, that sort of change can literally take generations to truly see the results of. As noted earlier, the shift from 1920 to now (or even 1960's to now) has been obvious and apparent, albeit still… Continue Reading...

qualified and explained. The law is obviously an awesome tool to set high-level standards about discrimination and the treatment of people from differing background including along racial, ethnic and religious lines, just to name a few. Further, the disabled should absolutely be included in the scope of this question and the wider discussion about diversity and so forth. However, the law can only go so far and there will be people that will abuse and misuse the law if it is too harsh. Beyond that, there is plenty of power when it comes to the idea of being an… Continue Reading...

Nursing Theory into Action

forms of evidence as the means of effecting better nursing treatment. The most interesting facet of this article is the notion that evidence-based practice is best learned, or perhaps gleaned, via reading articles. Specifically, this approach is contrasted with that of simply taking a course in EBP. By incorporating the learning of evidence-based practice in reading scholarly articles, nursing programs are able to facilitate this didactic value continually instead of doing so in a fleeting fashion. The crux of the article is in delineating the efficacy of utilizing CASP (Critical Appraisal Skills Programme) (Nadelson and Nadelson, 2014, p. 344)… Continue Reading...

The history of fat is not an isolated story. As Rice notes, fat shaming and the social and cultural perspective of obesity in the West has ties to other cultural cues.[footnoteRef:1] Rice states that the cultural message regarding fitness and fatness contribute to perceptions of that "fat" people are unfit for society, do not have… Continue Reading...

from occurring. 2. Effectiveness: It is anchored on scientific evidence that subjecting a patient to treatment increases the likelihood of obtaining the desired healthcare outcomes. Such evidence is drawn from experiments in the labs, clinical research, outcomes research and epidemiological studies. Access to evidence and strength of such support depends on the type of disorder and the treatment options. 3. Equity: Everyone should gain from the healthcare system. It is evident that the current system has failed to achieve desired goals.

perceived prejudices. The study particularly established that women and minorities believe that the negative stereotypes or unequal treatment they receive at the workplace is as a result of their gender and racial background. This finding is largely true as instances of discrimination against women and minorities at the workplace are not rare. Finally, diversity receptivity may be influenced by interpersonal relationships. As explained by Soni (2000), interactions between members of different gender and racial backgrounds were quite disturbing, with most members often socializing with members with similar gender and racial background. Reduced contact between members of dissimilar racial and… Continue Reading...

impress his friends or if he really believed so. Discuss the nature of any mental health referrals or treatment that occurred and the outcome. Renatus Hartogs, the psychiatrist who was responsible for examining Oswald in '53 stated that Lee claimed that he only needed remedial help and did not require any other assistance. However, the team of doctors realized that he could be helped through a good relationship with a very patient and understanding psychotherapist. This would have good results especially when done at the same time with drawing him into psychotherapy for groups. From this, the psychiatrists concluded that… Continue Reading...

The article continues by suggesting computer technology be used to help autistic students develop social skills through viewing scenarios on the computer to interacting with other classmates and the teacher online. Giving these kinds of communication options to autistic students can potentially open them up to personal growth and development. It is often very hard for autistic… Continue Reading...

Advanced Practice Nursing

American Healthcare System: Implications for Advanced Practice Nursing Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) is the group of health care professionals on whom stakeholders and lawmakers depend to deliver most of America's health care. APRNs refer to registered nurses who've attained advanced clinical and educational practice requirements. They include clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners. Experts project that the demand for APRNs is bound to increase as hospitals pay more attention to the most unstable and sickest patients and move most of health services to homes, nurse-managed clinics, birthing centers, schools, community health centers, and other centers… Continue Reading...

Justice Is Better Than Equality

we can ask for fairness and just actions instead? Equality does not promote fairness between genders by focusing on treatment of women and men as the same. When equality is used as the basis for determining how men and women should be treated, the end goal is to achieve a gender-less state. This is totally wrong because it's impossible to reach a state of genderless given the diversity of humanity. Justice is a fair platform for treatment of men and women. Unlike equality, justice seeks to ensure women and men have equal and similar opportunities to succeed regardless of their… Continue Reading...

Genetic Testing

not always wise to accept at face value what a doctor offers as a potential option for treatment or testing. The use of supporting evidence while beneficial in alleviating any potential worries, is not the full picture. However, claims are able to point the reader in the right direction of what information to explore. In the end, it takes more information and analysis to truly come to a conclusion. References Brezina, P., Brezina, D., & Kearns, W. (2012). Preimplantation genetic testing.

Impact Of Stop Frisk Policy in New York

NYPD Stop Frisk Policy and its Statistical Racial Impacts The NYPD (NY Police Department) stop and frisk policy is a policy introduced by the New York City mandating the police officers to stop pedestrians and frisks them for contraband, and weapons. The rules are cited in the Section 140.50 in the New York criminal procedure law. In 2011, the NY police force used the frisk policy rule to stop approximately 685,724 people, however, the number reduced to 22,939 in 2015. The policy has become a controversial issue because over 5 million people were frisked during the first decade after introducing… Continue Reading...

I will monitor the goals using the outcome rating scale, also called ORS and the Session Rating Scale. These are measures that are designed to monitor the progress of treatment and therapeutic alliance. The ORS is provided at the beginning of the therapy session. It is reviewed and scored with the client during the session. The SRS, on the other hand, is only reviewed as necessitated by concerns that arise. Both SRS and ORS apply visual analogue scales. Each of them… Continue Reading...

Working Women Breastfeeding

initiatives are an expensive, low-priority and logistically challenging benefits that require special treatment (special rooms, more breaks, etc.), and a potential liability risk (safety and storage of human milk). Moreover, organizations lack knowledge of lactation initiatives' business advantages: reduced healthcare expenses, personnel turnover and absenteeism, and improved productivity, company image, and personnel job satisfaction. The action plan may also include offering organizations technical aid to develop organizational lactation policies (Mohler, 2011). Further, according to Mohler (2011), another step would be: promoting employer training in this regard. Local birth centers, healthcare organizations, group practice healthcare providers and health departments can… Continue Reading...

Counter Terrorism in Africa Policy Design

which could make this study more difficult to perform. Thus selecting a treatment -- counter-terrorism policy -- and control groups (regions were no policy is implemented) may be the best way to conduct a field experiment. The limitations of the study will necessarily have to be addressed as it is possible that a statistically significant sample size will be difficult to achieve. For this reason, the study is likely to be limited in terms of external validity (Mills, Gray, Airasian, 2012). However, in terms of internal validity, it should be duplicable because the method, design, and measurement and analysis of… Continue Reading...

How Stem Cells Can Help Spinal Cords

Stem Cells I just wanted to write you a letter letting you know a little bit about stem cells. I know the doctors have identified you as a good candidate for a trial using stem cell therapy, and -- since you asked -- I thought this would be a good opportunity to share with you what I have learned on this subject. Like all subjects, it can be simplified or made complex. I will try to strike a balance between the two extremes in this letter. First off, stem cells are not like ordinary cells. When I say "ordinary" I… Continue Reading...

Current Federal Law Related to Marijuana

by several states, is doing just that. Tremendous evidence exists in favor of marijuana as one among the safest treatment alternatives in existence, if used as per physician directions. Researchers have proved marijuana's colossal clinical benefits. Court trials wherein patients have posed evidence of marijuana consumption of medical purposes have ended in the finding that the drug is actually medically critical to their wellbeing. As about twenty percent of all deaths in cancer patients result from them wasting away, it is meaningless and cruel to criminalize physician-advised consumption of an effective, safe, and easily accessible treatment option (Should marijuana… Continue Reading...

Juvenile Probation

lead to better positive outcomes. With juvenile courts' growing adoption of treatment-based approaches, the 21st-century probation officer's role is continuously evolving (Abusaid & Newton, 2014). An effective probation officer has to evaluate individual delinquent children's needs in order to ascertain the best course/option for them. Probation officers with a social work background will be inclined to place greater emphasis on probation's rehabilitative aspects, instead of the disciplinary ones. Of course, this is also dependent on individual juvenile courts and the methods they desire to implement. In brief, I have opted for juvenile probation as a career path as I… Continue Reading...

Why Shelters Have More Female Volunteers

rights groups like PETA, the animal rights movement is political in nature, advocating for the ethical treatment of animals and against the exploitation of animals in the form of meat eating, drug testing, or the leather industries. On the other hand, animal rescue volunteerism can distance itself from politics, by focusing narrowly on the interests of rescuing animals from cruel and abusive situations or promoting community spay and neutering programs. If animal shelters want to recruit more volunteers from both genders, it might be important to examine the political motivations of existing volunteers and match those motivations to shelter… Continue Reading...

Obtaining Informed Consent in Ontario

Latha (2010) notes, "Legally, treatment without consent is permissible only where common law or statute provides such authority" (p. 96) and in the case of the schizophrenic patient who refuses to take the prescribed medication the question comes down to whether the person is legally capable of making a decision. If so, then he has every right to refuse treatment; if not, treatment may be given him. This is the essence of the Health Care Consent Act, which is used to determine whether such a person as the schizophrenic patient is capable of… Continue Reading...

Treatment Modalities for Act and Ipt

distinct roles, and different patients may be referred to one of these treatment modalities yet resist treatment in some way. Rather than viewing these patients as categorically "difficult," therapists would be better off repositioning and rebranding ACT and IPT to better sell their respective models. It is also helpful to understand patient reservations, recognize there may be cross-cultural variables at stake in the communication process, or other patient-centric variables impacting their attitudes toward the particular modality. Many patients naturally mistrust a treatment modality that is new or unfamiliar to them, or which they have never heard of before in… Continue Reading...

Bacteria and Viruses

again, very problematic even for skilled and proficient doctors. In order to begin proper treatment as fast as possible and decrease needless and redundant antibiotic treatments, the well-timed knowledge and understanding of whether the infection is viral or bacterial in origin is beneficial for the healthcare provider (Yu et al., 2016). It is imperative to note that it is impossible to have a reliable and dependable prediction of the causative agent for bacterial infections on the basis of clinical features. Therefore, it is necessary to consider penetrating and detailing indicators of bacterial infection. It is imperative that nurses comprehend… Continue Reading...

Many of these used to be prescription-only but many are also now (or are on the way to becoming) over the counter (GSK, 2016).

Sources Of Birth Defects in Older Mothers

High-Risk Pregnancies Having a baby is a dream that many families have.

All three protagonists indicate a longing for a different life compared to what they are experiencing. For instance, Bei Dao asserts "seeing the cold-faced goats on the other side of the fence I changed direction" (Dao, 87).

Even so, even subtle and more basic manifestations of this are not good either. Even if maltreatment and snobbery is not overt and unmistakable, it is still not a good thing and should be reacted to as such. Indeed, even if Fu Ping was not herself guilty of being an overt bigot, racist or oppressor, she manifested some behaviors and points of analysis that are less than flattering to her. This is true despite the fact… Continue Reading...

Sigmund Freud & the Human Condition

introduction of these psychopathologies is believed to affect people and require some form of treatment. Thus, psychoanalysis is the appropriate treatment of the psychopathologies. The diagram below shows how Freud divided the three levels and the estimated usage of each level. They are the unconscious, the subconscious, and the conscious. The acceptance of Freud's psychoanalytical theory has been discredited by professionals who at times dismiss it as mere thoughts. However, within the theory, there is a concept or a model that has withstood the test of time. Freud's Conscious Mind Consciousness can best be understood as being aware of… Continue Reading...

From this day on, the style of women changed and between 1910 and 1920, many women were present in the labor force.

Dbt and Family Based Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Dialectical behavior therapy treatment (DBT) falls within the category of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Its main focus is on psychosocial characteristics. Based on the theory that emotions can trigger intense reactions in some persons (especially in family/friend or romantic situations), DBT proposes that the extreme swings in feeling can be better controlled by enabling the individual to more easily identify the kinds of thoughts and feelings that have an intense impact and prepare the person cognitively to approach these emotional surges in a new way.

Prison Psychologists and Biases in Corrections

Moreover, a full third of prison psychologist work time is spent on administrative duties -- more than the time spent on direct treatment. Only 26% of their work time is devoted to directly treating the inmates, meaning that structural and institutional variables are impeding the delivery of quality mental health care to the prison community.

What makes it acceptable to subject an offender to such kind of punishment is a big moral question. Customarily, the rationale behind punishment is either retributivist or consequentialist. Consquensialists argue that punishment is necessary towards achieving a noteworthy purpose, an example of which is crime reduction. Retributivists, on the other hand, argue that punishment is a basic or natural response for doing something wrong. However, abolitionists argue that punishment is morally unacceptable and thus both defenses are not valid. The question… Continue Reading...

psychologists, especially Freudians, considered experiences undergone at the tender, early childhood age to be crucial to social, psychological and mental growth. Newer studies reveal that even late-childhood experiences are influential, capable of altering a child's developmental course.

Hence, while childhood is deemed to be the ideal age to independently learn any second language (i.e., without direct teaching on others' part), adults also can and have effectively learnt second languages (Woolfolk… Continue Reading...

St Elizabeths Organizational Structure and Mission

the different services required by patients. Some patients may begin with a need for treatment of a specific ailment like a fall in rehabilitative care services, but then later need supportive therapy in the form of adult daycare. As patients transition between different components of the organization, dialogue between the various providers is helpful to ensure high-quality care. The fact that organizational components are not isolated from one another, as is typical of a matrix structure, is also useful, since this ensures no information is lost and providers are always communicating with one another. Thus, I believe the structure… Continue Reading...

For example, according to Conniff (2013), growing international outrage over the treatment of the suspected terrorists housed in the Guantanamo Bay detention center has damaged the credibility of the United States. In this regard, Conniff (2013) notes that, “Now, the spectacle of military medics force-feeding hunger-striking detainees, many of whom have been held for more than eleven years without trial, has stirred public outrage about the whole extralegal system of detention at Guantanamo” (p. 9).  Besides waterboarding, terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay have also been force-fed by military medics when they went on hunger strikes.

Not surprisingly, this change in anti-dumping legislation resulted in widespread criticism from international observers.

She felt shamed by her loss of privacy, her forcible detainment, and of her own condition. Kirtland felt socially isolated and tried hard to make new friends but failed because he was not really understanding his own self.

Human Theory Of Caring

and caring for the sick (Clark, 2016). The theory places a focus on health promotion along with treatment of illness. According to Watson, when nurses care, they are adhering to essential principles and in turn promote better health outcomes versus a simple medical cure (Clark, 2016). Putting this in the perspective of my practice, patients respond better when nurses act like they care. Showing sincere interest in the person’s wellbeing promotes a desire for the patient to get better. I personally experienced enthusiastic patients come back and tell me that my care of them during their time ill helped… Continue Reading...

The Origins and Types Of Behavioral Therapy

Prevention (2017) advocates the use of behavior therapy as an “effective treatment for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),” (p. 1). Behavior therapies are designed not just to change target behaviors but also to change the ways people feel about themselves and the world, which is why behavior therapy can improve self-esteem (Herkov, 2016). Some of the most common approaches to behavioral therapy fall under the rubric of cognitive-behavioral therapy, which is used in a variety of clinical settings. In fact, Craske (2010) claims cognitive-behavioral therapy is “the most popular model of psychotherapy used in contemporary clinical practice,” (p. 17). The… Continue Reading...

This can take significantly drawn-out amount of time and with the exception that the partakers are prepared to put in the time, the practice will merely be impossible (DiGiovanni et al., 2006). In interest-based bargaining, there is the shortcoming of finding it difficult to control team members. In… Continue Reading...

Some doctors and nurses might not know how to communicate with patients from different backgrounds due to language or cultural barriers; crowdsourcing medicine has the potential to offer patients unbiased assessments. Issues like gender and race can be taken into account for diagnostic reasons, but might not come in the way of doctor-patient communications. Research shows that the accuracy of a diagnosis dramatically increases the more people assess the case: “if you look at the aggregate choices from tens of thousands of other doctors around… Continue Reading...

The Link Between Mental Health and Trauma Informed Care

nurses gain a sense of empowerment. Overall, trauma is a prevalent phenomenon among mental health patients. Most patients seeking treatment for personality disorders, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, and other mental health complications have experienced trauma at one point or another in their life. Unfortunately, most clinicians in Australia’s mental healthcare setting portray little or no acknowledgement of these trauma histories. They fail to recognise the profound impact these traumas may have on patients’ physical and emotional wellbeing. This can be changed by adopting the trauma-informed care model. Under this model, care is personalised to the specific psychosocial needs of… Continue Reading...

Obamacare Pros and Cons and Mandated Insurance

The main problem with these opposing views is that they are misleading facts; there is no causality between the cost of insurance premiums and/or the amount of budget deficit and Obamacare specifically. The rising cost of healthcare has more to do with cost structuring, insurance price gouging, and profit-driven medical care services than they have to do with the ACA. More people are able to access healthcare preventative or curative services, which is the goal of the ACA. The goal… Continue Reading...

However, life sentences should generally never be used. When it comes to drug possession charges that are felonies, those offenses should generally never have any consideration for “three strikes”. Even if there are related and ancillary crimes (e.g. theft), a life sentence for drug possession is not something that can be justified. The one caveat to that statement would be people that are dealing or trafficking. It is usually not hard to tell the difference.… Continue Reading...

Women in Frontline Combat

The number of women in the military has continued to increase over the years to an extent that women account for a significant portion of the military.  The substantial increase in the number of women in the military over the past decades can be attributable to the emergence of the All-Volunteer Force in 1973.  However, women have been traditionally excluded from exposure to combat or frontline combat, which is one of the military occupational specialties. This exclusion can be traced back to the establishment of the risk rule in 1988 by the Pentagon (Strategika, p.6).  While this rule was abolished… Continue Reading...

Magnetic Resonance Venography (MRV) diagnostic process may be used that amalgamates radio frequencies, a big magnet, along with at least one computer to create comprehensive images of bodily structures and organs. An MRV make use of magnetic resonance systems as well as intravenous (IV) contrast dye to envision the veins. Contrast dye leads to the blood vessels becoming obscure in an x ray, enabling the physician to review the blood vessels… Continue Reading...

Psychology Of Motivation and Oxytocin

that the etiology of impulse control issues in Parkinson's disease is complex, examine the ethical concerns of any psychopharmacological treatment that may lead to gambling, increase risk-taking behaviors, or other potentially harmful behaviors. Is the treatment worth the risk of the potential side effects? Impulse control disorders are already relatively common amongst sufferers of Parkinson’s disease. Dopamine-replacement therapies used to treat Parkinson’s disease have been associated with impulse control disorders (Leeman, Billingsley & Potenza, 2012). Yet because these pharmacological interventions do not necessarily lead to impulse control disorders, it is should not be unethical to prescribe dopamine replacement. Not… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Meditation on Addiction Therapy

in the former’s creation. At first, MBCT was labeled Attentional Control Training, concentrating chiefly on psychiatric disorder treatment. Xie and colleagues (2014) claim that the general psychological health improvements depicted by individuals undergoing MBCT may stem from various training-related advantages. Thus, anxiety and depression diagnosed individuals may profit from MBCT during rehab, for facilitating long-run maintenance of improved QOL (quality of life). Being deployed to the battlefield is linked to an appreciable growth in fresh onset substance use disorder, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), chronic pain and MDD (major depressive disorder). Vythilingam and Khusid (2016) note that a growing number… Continue Reading...

Pepsico Organizational Change Caused by Aquafina Water

to exploit a resource that was already in existence, i.e. the water treatment equipment already at the bottling plant locations. These were being used to purify water for the soft drinks that the company produced (McKay, 2002). The then Pepsi beverage main CEO along with his team figured out that there was a need for Pepsi to set itself apart by filtering out all it could from tap water. Pepsi figured out that it could transform a resource that was already available into a product with a taste and quality that could stand its market ground against the already… Continue Reading...

Life Of Arthur Koestler

able to find women who would adore him despite less than egalitarian treatment of them on his part. Moreover, his characteristics of wealth and fame also enabled him to have multiple affairs during the course of his lifetime, perhaps much more so than men of lesser renown and funding could have. During the middle part of the 20th century, then, he became just as well known for social exploits as for his forays into intellectual, political, and international affairs. He drank to excess during this epoch, hobnobbed with other famous thinkers and writers of his time, and became unruly… Continue Reading...

Delays in Medicating New Admissions Leading to Discharge Against Medical Advice

retention of the child in hospital for two working days, to facilitate observation and treatment, where there is a need. 3. The above section to be invoked by the chief of the hospital does not change any rights of guardianship. Therefore, the parents can still get access to their infant. The section only overrules them when the hospital requires the child to be retained in hospital for medical reasons but they are opposed. 4. The parents risk a fine of $12 000, and a one-year prison sentence if they defy the orders by the authorities to retain the child… Continue Reading...

Diagnosing and Prescribing treatment of These Disorders In the case of women, it is recommended that they take precaution by undergoing screening for GERD condition in a health center (Rao, Micic, & Kim, 2016). This way they can safely manage the symptoms if they are discovered. PUD diagnosis involves taking an acid-blocking medication to check if the PUD symptoms will improve. In case the ulcers are extensive, the individual should change their lifestyle, medication, or undergo surgery. Diagnosis of gastritis is mostly done… Continue Reading...

Water Conservation

water from my hometown in the Greater Cincinnati region is produced by the Miller treatment Plant, which takes surface water from the Ohio River and is responsible for providing almost all of the region’s drinking water. Water is first tested before entering the treatment plant and the region has a number of alerts in place to allow it to proactively monitor the water situation. For example, there is a detection system used on the Ohio River that “warns treatment plants downstream about spills so that measures can be taken before the spill reaches water intakes” (GCWW, 2017). Since the… Continue Reading...

Common Property and Animal Testing

Q1. List ten real-world common property resources with which you are familiar. Describe an example of one of these common property resources that is not (tragically) overexploited (use the term “institution/s” in your discussion). The so-called tragedy of the commons is defined as the fact that people tend to exploit common resources to the maximum degree possible for their own benefit, thus indirectly harming other or future people who could benefit from the resource (“Tragedy of the Commons,” 2018). Examples of common property include public parks, fish in the ocean, public monuments, highways, clean water, clean air, public bathrooms, trees,… Continue Reading...

Margaret Newman's Theory Of Health

help to alleviate the pains and pressures that people often experience when they are seeking treatment. The theory is therapeutic in the sense that it offers one the ability to achieve a kind of peace within oneself through meditation on a kind of higher concept of self, place and purpose. It focuses, in this way, on psychic energies and promotes a positivity within the patient so that negative concepts and ideas are dismissed and only positive energy remains. It is meant to be an uplifting approach to patient health. The theory is a good one in that it can… Continue Reading...

The Impact Of Using Bilingual Call Compared to Family Interpreters Research Paper

is a conflict between the professional perspectives where the bilingual interpreters overstep their role to engage in the treatment process (Bethea, 2018). Such conflict in the definition of the role of the interpreter may eventually work to the disadvantage of the patient. There are also instances where the doctor feels that their concerns are not articulated to the patient as desired. The patient may also find it difficult to engage a strange third party in their treatment process which them introduces another aspect which the provider has to consider before they can decide on which interpreter to work with.… Continue Reading...

Treating Adhd and Odd in Children

This paper also notes that while medications are available for treatment of children with ADHD and ODD, they should not be relied upon as a cure-all but rather as a support as the parent and the child both attempt to cope with the disorder and learn to interpret and respond appropriately to impulses. Outline I. Introduction a. ADHD and ODD are commonly linked (Harvey, Breaux & Lugo-Candelas, 2016) b. Opposition can stem from feelings of rejection on the part of the child with ADHD c. Parents who are stressed can compound these negative feelings… Continue Reading...

Nursing Mindfulness and Its Impact

with practices in the role of corresponding clinical aid for the treatment of several mental and physical sicknesses have become more popular. In particular, two of the practices that have been analyzed include the mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) having all-encompassing participants demonstrating that they are efficacious. Assimilation of the elements of MBSR together with cognitive behavioral therapy and cognitive psychology approaches gave rise to the formation of MBCT. Initially, the latter was referred to as Attentional Control Training and fundamentally lay emphasis on treating psychiatric disorder. In accordance to a study conducted by Xie… Continue Reading...

Physician Assisted Suicide and Ethics

patient alone can determine his or her quality of life and what treatment to accept or reject, a physician who is willing to participate in an end-of-life procedure even for one who is not physically terminally ill should put him or herself at the service of the patient. Physician-assisted suicide is thus perfectly ethical. References Buiting, H., Dieden, J., et al. (2009). Reporting on euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide in the Netherlands.

Texas Constitution

composed of members who had strong reputations, though still targeted by those groups looking for special treatment (utexas.edu). Many issues came under contention, which undermined the strength and momentum of the revision committee. For example, some members thought that urban areas should streamline their multiple and controversial political jurisdictions by an increase in the authority of city governments, a move which was thwarted by those wanting to maintain the power of county governments. The convention during which these recommendations were discussed and assessed on January 8th 1974 turned out to be very contentious and only approved of submitting eight… Continue Reading...

Homelessness

School of Social Work, sees a direct correlation between homelessness and the inadequate treatment of mental illness. Kurzban points out that while mentally ill homeless people only make up one-third of the actual homeless population at any given time, they still consume 75 percent of all resources available (Kruzman, 2016). If the mentally ill homeless population is adequately addressed and removed from the streets, it would help the larger homeless population as a whole, because then the massive amount of resources that have so long been concentrated on this one portion can then be redistributed across the complete collective… Continue Reading...

Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder

mood and behavioral disorders do receive appropriate and evidence-based treatment. As a childhood-only disorder, diagnoses are only offered to individuals between the ages of 6 and 18 (National Institute of Mental Health, 2018). Symptoms include constant irritability and anger, frequent outbursts or tantrums, and trouble functioning socially as a result of these mood and behavioral symptoms. Because the disorder has only been classified for a few years, prevalence rates are inconclusive, with estimates between .8% and 3.3% (Copeland, Angold, Costello, et al, 2013). However, another reason why DMDD was and remains a controversial mood disorder classification is that as… Continue Reading...

Transitioning to Computers and Electronic Medical Records in Healthcare

HMS (healthcare management systems) and EMRs (electronic medical records) have been widely praised as significantly adding to patient safety and quality of care. They can permit healthcare institutions to keep more accurate databases on patients, all in one location, and can ensure that a patient’s full medical records are available, even if the patient is not responsive and the patient’s family is not available. Prior treatments, current and past medications, and patient allergies can all be easily accessed with a point and a click. But transitioning to such healthcare systems is not always without issues and often involves a significant… Continue Reading...

Hawaii Language Culture and Affirmative Action

Amendment. This is the “reverse discrimination” argument, and also ties into the unfair treatment argument. The reason for affirmative action is not to discriminate; quite the opposite, affirmative action is activism on behalf of disadvantaged groups. Helping a disadvantaged group is not favoritism and is not unfair when some groups are systematically disadvantaged versus other groups. Kelly and Sharma talk about the ways women and minorities have been systematically discriminated against in ways that are not even embedded in official policies, but in unconscious practices. For example, a student who is native Hawaiian can be easily discouraged from pursuing… Continue Reading...

Babies Born from Transplanted Uteruses Ethics

legal and ethical right to choosing that option. The treatment exists, and in spite of being risky, presents one of the most exciting new options in assisted reproductive technologies. Other reasons why healthcare workers should participate in this procedure is that doing so would promote new research and thereby potentially improve the technology and techniques being used. Furthermore, the option to carry her own child is one that would alleviate the psychological suffering many women feel when they are unable to become a biological mother. Both utilitarian and deontological arguments support the use of transplanted uteruses as a viable… Continue Reading...

about that patient’s own body. Likewise, non-disclosure inhibits the ability of the patient “to make appropriate decisions about the treatment that she needed as a result of the error,” (Sorrell, 2017, p. 1). Advanced practice nurses also operate under the ethical duty to care and to not do harm. Disclosure prevents further harm from occurring: such as the harm that arises out of eroded trust, the harm that arises out of the perpetuation of a culture of deceit in the organization, and the harm that could arise if such errors did actually lead to adverse outcomes.

felt gratuitous, but rather an accurate depiction of the horrors of war. This treatment of the war scenes fits with the overall story, as Doss was a medic and a pacifist. In that role he had to deal with soldiers with varying injuries, and his personal views were really to be appalled at the violence he was witnessing. The enemy is characterized primarily through the lenses of the protagonist (American) soldiers. There was little particular attempt to give Japanese soldiers much character or personality. There was a scene where Doss sent a Japanese soldier down to the beach, and… Continue Reading...

Schizophrenia

Psychological Disorders and Their treatment Schizophrenia is a chronic brain or psychological disorder that causes the sufferer to experience hallucinations, have paranoid delusions, engage in confused speech, have trouble thinking clearly, and lose the ability to function in a normal manner. According to the DSM-V (2013), the diagnosis criteria for schizophrenia states that these symptoms must last at least in duration for 6 months and there should be at least one month in which the symptoms are active and are negatively affecting the person’s life—i.e., the individual’s ability to… Continue Reading...

Value Based Reimbursement Models in Healthcare

Value-based reimbursement models are becoming more common in healthcare. Value-based models structure reimbursements according to metrics like efficiency, cost, quality, and patient feedback (Pennic, 2014). Some of the most commonly used value-based reimbursement and payment models include Medicare Quality Incentive Programs, Pay for Performance, Accountable Care Organizations, Bundled Payments, Patient-Centered Medical Home, and Payment for Coordination (Pennic, 2014). More traditional reimbursement models include standard fee-for-service systems, which are woefully inefficient for patients with chronic conditions due to the large number and type of treatments needed (Sanghavi, George, Samuels, et al, 2014). While there is no one preferred approach to reimbursements,… Continue Reading...

In medical centers as well as other treatment institutions, transformational leadership could be carried out within any institutional system or department like worker groups, divisions, sectors, as well as at the top leadership (Choi, Goh, Adam, And Tan, 2016). Essentially, this idea improves not just the inspiration but the overall performance and spirits of professional followers via an array of systems (Kelly, 2005). Via constant learning, these systems vary and differ in many ways; from performing as a role model for followers as a motivation, to having knowledge of their weaknesses and strengths, and more… Continue Reading...

Diabetes Mellitus in Rural Settings

(Alligood, 2018). This paper will specifically examine the application of Kristen Swanson’s Theory of Caring to the treatment of patients suffering from diabetes mellitus living in rural settings without adequate access to healthcare. Virtually all nursing theories are composed of four essential core definitions, that of person, environment, health, and nursing itself. Swanson’s theory, however, specifically focuses on nursing, which Swanson defines as a very specific type of caring. Clinical Issue Although obesity is increasing across the nation, obesity is often particularly rife in rural settings with limited access to healthcare and healthy foods. Health literacy has likewise been… Continue Reading...

One such areas where Americans want reform is the stop-and-frisk program. “The NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk program shows similar evidence of racial profiling, with police targeting blacks and Latinos. In nearly nine out of 10 searches, police find nothing. Likewise, excessive force by police persists despite Constitution’s prohibition on unreasonable searches/seizures” (Natarajan, 2014). Not only is it a wasteful action, leading to potential problems with the public and unnecessary arrests, it perpetuates the fear culture brought on by police officers and their, at times,… Continue Reading...

problem with the agricultural capitalist systems is of the substandard levels of treatment meted out to the working class. Migrant laborers, particularly those from other nations, have fewer rights and are usually regarded as slaves. Further, farm workers along with their families are usually intensely polluted with pesticides. The situations of the working force on agricultural plantations that are of large-scale, particularly in Asia, Latin America, and Africa, are the most exploited ones. The working class is very often paid meager wages. Firing or violence would be carried out to prevent any form or unionization, and pesticides (banned in… Continue Reading...

Juvenile Delinquency Essay

ones who pushed for a distinct court system for the treatment of juveniles, with the underlying notion being that these young people could potentially be helped and reformed. “Central to the concept of juvenile court was the principle of parens patriae. This meant that instead of lawyers fighting to decide guilt or innocence, the court would act as a parent or guardian interested in protecting and helping the child” (yale.edu, 2000). These reforms were novel at the time, and helped to enact changes such as closed hearings for juveniles, informal proceedings and the separation of child criminals from adult… Continue Reading...

Net Neutrality Essay

net neutrality suggest that it protects innovation, by keeping big companies from paying for special treatment and putting start-ups at a disadvantage.  More importantly, proponents suggest that net neutrality protects free speech, by prohibiting ISPs from giving preferential treatment to some content, or, worse, blocking or throttling access to other content.  Perhaps most importantly, true net neutrality would require reclassifying ISPs from their current classification to something more like a utility, which would mean that ISPs would be required to provide services to any customer willing to pay for them, regardless of credit, type of business, or the user’s… Continue Reading...

and employers; where an employer was able to exert a high level of power, including unfair treatment (Laybourn, 1997). The formation of trade unions, especially the beginning of the 20th century, redress this issue, and may be credited with adjustments in power in the employee/employer relationship and the development of statutory requirements to protect employees rights. However, the power of the unions has been subsided from some time, particularly following the long coalmine strikes during the 1970s, which were highly unpopular with the public (Laybourn, 1997). The 2016 act makes a significant changes, and moves very strongly away from… Continue Reading...

Death Penalty Essay

cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment, although it has found abusive treatment within prisons to be cruel and unusual. The Supreme Court performs a so-called “ proportionality analysis” when evaluating a punishment according to the following three tests: “Consideration of the offense's gravity and the stringency of the penalty; a consideration of how the jurisdiction punishes its other criminals; and a consideration of how other jurisdictions punish the same crime” (“Death penalty,” 2017). Another important argument against the death penalty is its discriminatory nature. Historically, African-Americans have been executed in greater numbers than whites, even for the… Continue Reading...

Articles like “High Dose Recombinant Human Growth Hormone (GH) treatment of GH-Deficient Patients in Puberty Increases Near-Final Height: A Randomized, Multicenter Trial” have the Genentech authorship in the byline, which does seem to reduce the overall credibility of a scientific journal article given that the research is explicitly designed to market a product sold by the author (Mauras, Attie, Reiter, et al). A plethora of similar research has flooded the peer-reviewed journal landscape since the advent of the Genentech corporation, as Hughes points out.

Patient Centered Care in Healthcare Nursing

in that they are not ethically beholden to evidence-based patient-centered care. The procedures, programs of treatment, or medications the payer will cover may not be those that a healthcare team would have recommended. As is the case with regulators, payers often make their decisions more based on aggregate data than what might be good for a single, individual patient. As such, reimbursement policies will typically reflect a broader sort of approach to policy-making than at the level of healthcare organization administration. The results of an epidemiological study, for instance, might be in conflict with what is best for one… Continue Reading...

It is important to note that as Stevenson, Jack, O’Mara and LeGris (2015, p. 37) point out, violence from patients towards nurses does take a toll on not only the physical, but also the emotional wellbeing of nurses. While physical effects could manifest in the form of physical injuries and disabilities, emotional pain includes stress and depression. As Arnetz, Hamblin, Essenmacher,… Continue Reading...

This subsidization of treatment incentives specialists and health care providers to order more and more treatments and tests for patients, as they know the government will pay for them. Instead of working prevent illness, disease and disorders, health care providers focus instead on ordering tests and waiting till patients are sick and then treating them (Sommers, Gawande & Baicker).

Mass Incarceration in Arizona Social Cultural and Legislative History

However, the state ensures that none of these people receive treatment for addictions, ensuring that the rate of recidivism will stay high. Another sign of corruption that exists within Arizona is that “the state does not collect any aggregate data on how criminal sentencing laws are actually being applied. There was no way to know how many people were arrested or sentenced under a given criminal law, what sentence they received, or how much it cost” (Fealk, 2017). This is a deeply unsettling aspect of incarceration culture there, as it indicates a certain lawlessness within the system, where officials… Continue Reading...

Viewing the unity of all humankind is another way to view economics, in particular the global recession of 2007-2009, something that was motivated by the collapse of the sub-prime mortgage market. As Levine explains, “Jewish law has much to say about the current economic malaise. It can describe the collapse of the subprime market in moral terms and suggest theologically based measures to… Continue Reading...

There are several different ways to classify antimicrobial agents, and likewise, different methods of determining whether the infection is related to a virus, bacteria, or otherwise. Classifying Antimicrobial Agents One method of classifying antimicrobial agents is via their chemical composition or molecular structure. Another method of classifying antimicrobial agents is via their mechanism of action, and a third method is their level of importance overall in human medicine, which pragmatic implications for public policy, public health policy, and healthcare procurement… Continue Reading...

Common chronic diseases that become more and more prevalent each year are diseases like multiple sclerosis and diabetes. Diabetes is a notoriously expensive chronic illness to manage. Patients often experience complications from the disease like vision loss, high blood pressure, heart disease, and amputation (Institute of Medicine (U.S.), 2012). That is why diabetes must be managed and prevented. Type II diabetes for example is often acquired through poor diet choices and leading a… Continue Reading...

Bangladeshi Economy in the Post Partition Era

Act was amended for strengthening central bank autonomy, besides reducing commercial state-owned banks’ special treatment (2018 Index of Economic Freedom, 2018). The Bangladeshi healthcare sector displays scant concern for patient privacy (Guhathakurta & van Schendel, 2013). Privacy demands in the nation are also certainly weaker as compared to ‘Western’ nations. The nation’s impoverished population has no issues with sharing a ward (sometimes even a large hall housing almost a hundred beds) with other patients. Also, it is nearly impossible for the impoverished to afford such privacy. Still, admission to a common ward leaves patients facing unanticipated situations which threaten… Continue Reading...

On the other hand, adjuvant chemotherapy (post-operative) aims at reducing recurrence risks. Breast cancer is treated via several… Continue Reading...

Spirituality Mind Body Spirit and Transpersonal Psychology

methods in grasping the human mind will allow for more genuine and effective treatment interventions. Some of the language used in transpersonal psychology seem deliberately anathema to the schools that continue to favor behaviorism or cognitive science. For example, Hunt (2010) refers to “future planetary spirituality,” (p. 20). Ferrer (2014) refers to “participatory metaphysical pluralism,” (p. 152). Transpersonal psychology focuses on the interconnectedness of human beings, preventing the persistent problems of alienation and isolation in spite of urbanization and globalization. The discursive practices and methods of transpersonal psychology may certainly prevent transpersonal psychology from being considered a legitimate fourth… Continue Reading...

However, in other Middle East countries reforms and legal interpretations have been made to help reduce the inequalities between men and women.

Therefore, there is a need for the nurses to be well educated on the care and use of central venous catheter lines, especially in the ICU. Patients who are hospitalized in the ICU require critical care and nurses who offer this care need to be well educated on how best to offer the care needed by the patients.

Theories Of Humanistic Psychology History

Humanistic Psychology Humanistic psychology has made a tremendous impact on the overall field of psychology and the social sciences in general. Since Rogers first introduced the concepts of unconditional positive regard, the ideals of professional competence in psychotherapy have changed towards client-centered perspectives and practices (McArthur & Cooper, 2017). However, humanistic psychology often eschews quantitative research methods, diverges considerably from the views in cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis and behaviorism, and has been occasionally perceived or portrayed of as too soft to be relevant to the social sciences (Wong, 2017). More recently, humanistic psychologists have gained ground in acquiring greater credibility for… Continue Reading...

Charlotte Perkins Gilman “the Yellow Wallpaper”

and a refusal to treat women as intelligent, independent beings ironically produces the types of behaviors the psychological treatment of the era was supposed to prevent. Both women and men are guilty of limiting women’s voices when women attempt to escape the conventional confines of motherhood and domesticity. Although the main character’s love of reading and writing is a constant and sustaining force in her life, she is denied it when it is assumed her illness is due to her refusal to conform to conventional roles. As noted by history professor Hilary Marland, “The Yellow Wallpaper” is very much… Continue Reading...

Arguments for and Against Physician Assisted Suicide

the patient is under the doctor’s care, the patient cannot receive any treatment that would hasten death. Physician-assisted suicide is therefore said to undermine the life-affirming moral tenets of the medical profession. Another extension of the moral argument is that physician-assisted death would “undermine trust between physician and patient,” (Quill & Sussman, 2018). Finally, arguments against physician-assisted suicide warn that the practice could be too easily abused and that persons who are not capable of making an informed choice about their end of life may be euthanized. Opposing Argument: Physician Assisted Death Can Be Right The argument that physician-assisted… Continue Reading...

Disparities and Diabetes Among Latinos

distrust, poor health literacy and financial constraints can lead to poor diabetes treatment outcomes among disadvantaged groups (López & Golden, 2014). Micro and macro-vascular problems that are related to diabetes can be prevented by normalizing blood glucose, pressure and lipid levels. Intensive self management of diabetes can help to improve blood glucose levels. DSM has been hailed for its capacity to improve self management approaches and the patient confidence to finish the activities successfully. There is a need for close cooperation between the healthcare providers. Such cooperation faces challenges with Latino patients with limited English speaking skills, also commonly… Continue Reading...

There is research to show that when individuals are exposed to groups that are different from theirs, the media empowers such individuals through facilitating a learning experience that could be used to combat prejudices and stereotypes. The Council of Europe in 2010 took a bold step to combat sexist content in the media programs and in advertising. The resolution emphasizes the fact that the media plays a central role shaping the public opinion and therefore is… Continue Reading...

Muslim Women in Eastern and Western Literature

(Khalifeh). This is a common thread in feminist middle eastern literature today: a scathing portrayal of the treatment of women and the tremendous sacrifice of Muslim women—as well as the often cruel and uncaring world around them. Inequality continues to define the lives of women in the Middle East, something that is undeniably captured within literature. Part of this is because women’s active sexuality has always been viewed as a threat to men and to the patriarchy as a whole (Mernissi, 57). Hence part of the subjugation of women revolves around fear of their sexuality and their power. This… Continue Reading...

Things Fall Apart Achebe Character Analysis

a patriarchal society cares more about appeasing invisible spirits than about the ethical treatment of human beings. Achebe also paints a round character who fails to change because he never changes his values, beliefs, or motivations. Until the very end of the novel, Okonkwo remains “dominated by fear, the fear of failure and of weakness...deeper and more intimate than the fear of evil and capricious gods,” (Achebe, 1958, p. 10). The narrator reminds readers also that Okonkwo’s deepest fear is of “himself, lest he should be found to resemble his father,” (Achebe, 1958, p. 10). When Okonkwo faces his… Continue Reading...

In fact, the behaviorism movement can be divided into two different camps: the radical camp of… Continue Reading...

Postpartum Depression and Gilman Yellow Wallpaper

instructors can investigate the ethical implications of paternalistic practice and devise more effective treatment modalities in the future. Post-partum depression is complex, and it is unlikely that there is one common cause or cure. Psychologists also present several different theoretical orientations that can be used to frame postpartum depression, including the medical model, feminist theory, attachment theory, interpersonal theory, and self-labeling theory (Beck 282). The narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper” can also be analyzed in light of these various theories. Feminist theory highlights the means by which the men in the narrator’s life effectively punish and imprison her for… Continue Reading...

To add to the sense of corruption, many consumer watchdogs have brought up repeatedly that “nutritional education” in schools has been mostly funded by the dairy industry, and that the bias has been there for years, with little children being taught that dairy products are vital for adequate nutrition (onegreenplanet.org).

most famous films, partly because it is about a subject that is not given much treatment in Hollywood: female boxers. Hilary Swank stars in one of Eastwood’s only attempt at flushing out a female lead without resorting to gender tropes. The film earned Eastwood the Oscar for Best Picture, even though it is not his best attempt at direction given the formulaic nature of the story. In 1997, Eastwood directed one of his most controversial films: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. One of the few films Eastwood directs but does not act in, Midnight stars Kevin… Continue Reading...

Body Mind and Soul in the Cancer Ward Wit

and the disease from which Bearin is suffering. She helps Bearin get a release from the treatment that ultimately proves to be worse than the cancer itself. At the end of the play, Bearin is in intense pain and discusses her options with the nurse Susie Monahan, who informs her that she can sign a do not resuscitate order (DNR). The physicians with whom Bearin speaks do not mention this to her given that in their eyes, Bearin is only a subject to be studied, not a real human being. There is a great deal of irony in this,… Continue Reading...

Coping with Death and Dying

like they are united in a common struggle. In contrast, the media’s treatment of casualties in recent wars has served to separate us from death by depersonalizing the tragedies suffered by people in the Middle East. Their lives are not depicted as being human or as human lives lost as being meaningful to us. The media portrays so many people over there as just being enemies of America and people like Assad are portrayed as brutal dictators. Yet there is of course a human story to be told and instead of feeling the same way about the tragedy occurring over… Continue Reading...

The Tom Story in Mudbound

To Kill a Mockingbird. In the novel, the reader can comfortably shake the head at the treatment of the innocent black man. In the film Mudbound and the film Detroit, the viewer is really too caught up in the horror and the nightmare of what is happening in the moment to be able to feel self-righteous about how he would have handled it differently. There is no distance in the watching of the films. The action is too immediate and the viewer too wrapped up in the unfolding of the drama for “the Tom story” to really have an… Continue Reading...

Stigma Of Mental Illness

or her condition. Likewise, it is important to invite the patient to partake in the development of the treatment process. The more engaged the patient feels during the treatment development process, the more likely the patient is to take ownership of the treatment and experience positive returns once it is implemented (Foo et al., 2017). Additionally, educating the family of the patient is also important. As Saks (2009) points out, a great deal of fear and prejudice based on ignorance of the disorder can cause people to demonstrate bias towards others. People who do not understand the nature of… Continue Reading...

Effective Treatment for Veterans with Ptsd

finding the help they need to deal with their trauma-related issues (Military Times, 2016). Helping veterans to receive treatment is not easy, however, as there are a number of obstacles that get in the way—from the stigma of being seen as one suffering from a mental or emotional disorder to the problem of isolation, or PTSD being masked by other symptoms such as alcoholism or drug abuse and thus going untreated. This paper will discuss how care providers can more effectively treat veterans with PTSD by becoming aware of the challenges to effective treatment and identifying ways forward. One… Continue Reading...

Black Swan

psychologists and psychiatrists were asked to review the film, they noted that its treatment of the dancer’s psychology was problematic as well. “The film took liberties with a host of anxiety disorders: anorexia, bulimia, cutting and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)” said one psychiatrist (James, 2010, par.23). Rather than focusing on a single disorder, the film preferred to use a constellation of them. Ballet is shown as giving rise to a variety of psychoses in a diffuse manner. This paper will provide an overview of possible diagnoses for Nina and also note why they are problematic to fully explain the… Continue Reading...

Ethical Dimensions Of the Innovator Role

prison simulation was kept as real as possible, participants who played the role of prisoners were subjected to inhumane treatment like real-life criminals. They were arrested at home without any prior warnings and taken to a police station where they were subjected to inhumane treatment. The desire to kept the simulation as real as possible provided a loophole for the mistreatment of some of the research participants and the ethical failure of the researchers to protect these participants. The mission of the Brandman University Institutional Review Board is to “protect the rights of human research participants in research studies”… Continue Reading...

Haiti Health Marketing Plan

Primary Healthcare Plan coupled with the Travel Care Voucher Program to enable transportation for medical treatment. Introduction Historically, healthcare institutions provide broad and general access to high quality services based on: a form or subscription, fee per payment, or healthcare insurance available. However, since Haiti ranked low when it comes to healthcare in the world. Such information led to Santé Nou realizing a unique opportunity to change the trajectory of Healthcare for the Island Nation. The first step is the determination of the institution mission or purpose, whether that mission is still valid and useful, and how the institution… Continue Reading...

This paper will discuss the treatment considerations for a person presenting with both bipolar disorder and personality disorder. Comorbid Disorders DSM-5 (2013) states that the diagnostic criteria for Bipolar 1 Disorder are: “For a diagnosis of bipolar 1 disorder, it is necessary to meet the following criteria for a manic episode. The manic episode may have been preceded by and may be followed by hypomanic or major depressive episodes” (p. 123). Mania is described as a… Continue Reading...

What Causes Down Syndrome

symptoms and complications of the disorder; what current research and evidence-based practices focus on; and the most common treatment and management practices for Down Syndrome. Pathophysiology In all but 5% of cases, Down Syndrome is caused by trisomy 21—i.e., the individual has three chromosome 21 copies (Antonarakis, Lyle, Dermitzakis, Reymond & Deutsch, 2004). As human cells typically have 23 chromosome pairs, with the father and mother each contributing a chromosome to the pair, any disruption in this pairing leads to a genetic disorder in the development of the child. Down Syndrome is caused by a disruption in the 21st… Continue Reading...

teachers would be of great relevance in seeking to further enhance treatment outcomes. For instance, in addition breaking down undertakings into ‘bite-size’ tasks, they should ensure that instructions to Jamel are given in an easy to understand and clear format. Further, in an attempt to help Jamel stay focused, some sense of order should be instilled by embracing routine and scheduling activities. Efforts should also be made to minimize distractions, i.e. at school by ensuring that Jamel is not seated close to windows. In the words of Foreman (2006), “ethical and legal issues are important in determining how doctors… Continue Reading...

Denson could, therefore, ensure that he is not dismissive of Tanney’s concerns. When it comes to Mahonney, Denson could embrace the prompt feedback approach whereby progress is constantly monitored with an aim of assessing the ground covered so far and the desired course of action in seeking to accomplish the overall objectives. This would come in handy in demonstrating to Mahonney that indeed, the various group objectives are indeed achievable. Lastly, with regard to Jing, Denson could adopt the empowerment approach whereby… Continue Reading...

Bariatric Surgery Pico Question

Also, long-term treatment for chronic obesity-related conditions has a physical, psychological, and economic cost for both the patient and society. A study by Ells (et al. 2015) tackled the even more controversial of whether obese children and adolescents should be prescribed gastric surgery. Finding studies which focus on children proved to be difficult and the study’s authors only could find one study of 50 participants which met their criteria. This meant that 25 were in the experimental group; 25 in the control group.… Continue Reading...

Elder Abuse

abuse is a complex phenomenon that can only be disentangled by better understanding the perpetrator and the fact that treatment must be focused on both victim and perpetrator. Also, the study shows that culpability varies by degrees among perpetrators and that it is wrong to label all perpetrators of elder abuse as “all bad” as there is not always an intention to harm the victim in every case.

Interstitial Cystitis (ic) Treatment Using Cam Modalities

Abstract The prevalence of interstitial cystitis (IC) has seen different treatment methods that have been aimed at reducing the level of pain and ensuring that the patients are comfortable. However, the continued failure of most of the conventional methods to treat the condition has necessitated physicians to recommend complementary and alternative methods of managing the condition. An analysis of the complementary and alternative methods (CAM) modalities is therefore, critical in understanding the different conceptual attributes that are significant in addressing the problem. IC is a condition that is characterized by chronic pain or discomfort in the… Continue Reading...

Health Information Technology Benefits

all aspects of health care because information is needed every time a treatment is needed, a diagnosis is made, a prescription is given—information has to be recorded, stored and shared accordingly. The easier it is for information to be gathered and used, the better quality care can be provided, so HIT is a great advancement for health care and all health care stakeholders (Chaudhry et al., 2006). 2 Challenges that HIT faces today are that it can be costly for some facilities or organizations to adapt their information methods. IT can also be costly to sustain and maintain, and… Continue Reading...

Phenomenological Design

to the assumption that the only way to judge treatment is based upon statistical evidence of cures, survival rates, or cost effectiveness. For example, “Phenomenological research would ask a question such as, ‘What is it like for a mother to live with a teenage child who is dying of cancer?’” versus a quantitative research study which would use evidence-based data to determine the most effective treatment (or a different qualitative approach such as an ethnography, which might examine a cultural approach to death and dying) (Nieswiadomy & Bailey, 2017, p.173). However, phenomenological study can be applied to fields outside… Continue Reading...

In these cases, even if authors cannot disclose research purpose prior to carrying out the research, they ought to do so immediately after collecting data, besides listing out potential participant harm or risks in the course of the study (Bhattacherjee, 2012). Confounding variables may have an influence on study direction. Confounding variables may be defined as variable besides independent variables of interest, which can have an influence on the dependent variable and have the potential to result in erroneous conclusions pertaining to the link between dependent and independent variables. It… Continue Reading...

Though the nation’s pride in the level of diversity it has achieved via equal employment opportunity and equal opportunity is warranted, the focus for the long term has to transcend these efforts. Military leaders need to stress the fact that diversity forms an intrinsic component of American culture, and if adequately recognized and supported, forms the bedrock for an inclusive army environment. This represents one constituent of developing adaptive, responsive and active leaders who are able to efficiently operate in whatever… Continue Reading...

Real names for people and schools should never be used. Use pseudonyms for descriptors when necessary (e.g. high school #1, biology lab # 2). The setting, especially the treatment setting needs to be described in sufficient details so that the study could be replicated. The setting is often intertwined with the description of the sample. After you have described the sample and setting, you need to identify and describe each group (e.g. treatment, control, etc.). Remember:… Continue Reading...

Asthma Treatment Options

that can wreak havoc in a person’s life. Whether young or old, treatment options can either help or hurt an asthma patient. Doctors and health professionals sometimes use the stepwise approach to help narrow down appropriate treatment options. While the stepwise approach has its place in treating asthma patients, there is also a need to research what recent options there are to help patients have a better quality of life with asthma. These recent options paired with a stepwise approach can better prepare the doctor or health professional in giving high quality care to his/her patient. Asthma treatment Options… Continue Reading...

Concept Map Of a Nursing Ethical Dilemma

patient care. One of the key moral dilemmas that a nurse can face while providing care is the treatment of a patient at the end of life. Towards the patient’s end of life, there is usually a problem as to which course of treatment ought to be rendered to the patient. The nurse is expected to provide palliative care with the main objective of relieving the suffering of the patients through the extensive examination and treatment of bodily, spiritual, as well as psychosomatic symptoms faced by patients. However, the nurse may face conflict from the family who necessitate aggressive… Continue Reading...

The Elderly and Dementia

The Aging Population and Dementia Introduction Dementia is generally defined as a problem that impacts the elderly population and includes “impairments in cognitive and intellectual ability, memory, language, reasoning, and judgment that interfere with everyday functioning” (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 2014). The two leading types of dementia in the world are Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia (Livingston et al., 2017). Dementia is a problem for the elderly population because it is so prevalent and still somewhat poorly understood. As Jayadev et al. (2010) point out, the cause of the disease is still relatively unknown, which makes treating it difficult… Continue Reading...

Preventing and Abolishing Elder Abuse a Systematic Research Proposal

Elder Abuse: The Problem and Proposed Research Study Introduction Elder abuse is perhaps one of the most aggravated problems that exists in the modern world affecting old people. More than common afflictions like cardiovascular disease or diabetes, elder abuse is viewed all over the world as a complex and debilitating problem, one that needs decisive and immediate actions from the health care industry, legislators, the social work sector, and concerned citizens. Elder abuse is a problem that thrives all around the world, and as the international population of elderly people grows all over the world, the problem demands immediate action… Continue Reading...

Depression or Oppression in the Yellow Wallpaper

Charlotte is at first diagnosed with depression and supposedly put on treatment for the same, what informs her descent into further mental impairment is oppression, as opposed to depression. It is important to note that human beings happen to be social creatures. What this means is that they thrive on constant interactions with each other. Charlotte is isolated and the only persons she has access to are the nurse and her husband. At some point, she points out that she has nobody to seek “advice and companionship” from. She lacks a social system that she could actively use to… Continue Reading...

Psychology and Sociology Gender Inequality

stereotypes persist at almost every level and in every area of society. Often, the differential treatment given to males and females is subtle and deeply ingrained, taken so much for granted that most people are unaware that they are perpetuating gender bias. For example, adults treat male and female children differently, speaking to them using different tones of voice, reacting differently to their actions, and showing subtle signs of approval or disapproval when the child does or does not conform to gender norms. Even parents who claim to be progressive and egalitarian unconsciously pass on gender norms and stereotypes… Continue Reading...

remission whereby they present no symptoms at all, and periods of active disease. When it comes to treatment, both IBS and IBD have no known cure. However, several medications are often used to manage both diseases and thereby suppress their symptoms. Both IBS and IBD, however, have different treatment paths. When it comes to IBD, some of the medications used include “aminosalicylates, corticosteroids (such as prednisone), immunomodulators, and the newest class approved for IBD—the ‘biologics’ (CDC, 2018). In addition to diet management, IBS is also managed using drugs such as lubiprostone (Amitiza) and alosetron (Lotronex) (Barbara, Cremon, and Stanghellini, 2014).… Continue Reading...

Boron and Curing Osteoporosis

331). Should this translate to humans, it may be a positive alternative treatment for people, namely women, looking to improve their bone density. It may even become a treatment method for osteoporosis depending on proven efficacy. That is one of the hurdles with boron. Not much is known about boron regarding if someone has a deficiency of it, what symptoms may arise. What may happen after supplementation. These are key aspects to consider before boron becomes a widely accepted mode of treatment for an illness like osteoporosis. In conclusion, boron is not a new discovery. It is something that… Continue Reading...

Kublai Khan Improvements to the Chinese System and Ideals

Improvements to The Chinese System and Ideals Done by Kublai Khan Introduction Genghis Khan moved his troops into the quasi Chinese Chin-rule north China in 1211, and in 1215 they crushed the capital city. Hisson Ogodei vanquished all of North China by 1234 and ruled it from 1229 to 1241. Genghis Khan's grandson, Kublai Khan, vanquished the Chinese Southern Song in 1279, and out of the blue all of China was under foreign rule (Johnson, 2014). In 1271 Kublai Khan named his administration Yuan which signifies "origin of the universe." The Yuan tradition in China kept going from 1279 to… Continue Reading...

Most of these individuals do not have a college degree as they are between the ages of 18-24 when the PTSD develops. Their employment status is also unknown along with their income. Their geographical location is the U.S. and their combat experience is in the Middle East. Healthcare Needs The healthcare needs of this population include a need for therapy and pharmacological intervention. They can suffer from depression, isolation, withdrawal,… Continue Reading...

and clinics. Their main work is to assist in planning, implementation and evaluation of treatment for surgical patients. (Turunen et al., 2017). As such, the perioperative nurse starts her work immediately the patient is told of the need for surgery, and continues through the surgery and after the surgery. Spry (2016) divides the surgical process into three phases: preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative. These three make up what we call “perioperative”. The perioperative nurse is therefore tasked with providing care during all these three phases. Initially, perioperative nursing was called “operating room nursing”, which actually pointed to the care that… Continue Reading...

Unhealthy Behavior Drinking Inadequate Water

bottled water is actually tap water which may not have been subjected to any additional filtering treatment. (McLennan, 2000) You may be surprised to know that bottled water is more prone to contamination than tap water. This is better explained by the recommended testing intervals by the relevant bodies. For instance, the US Environmetal Protection Agency (EPA) states that public water supplies should be tested for pollutants several times a day. In the contrary, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stipulates that private bottlers should test water for pollutants either weekly, yearly, or once in four years. (McLennan, 2000)… Continue Reading...

It effectively facilitates and promotes serotoninergic transmission (Burton, Shaw, Schentag, Evans, 2006). As the author further points out, this is one property that clarifies this SSSI’s antidepressant properties. The maximum dosage within a 24 hour period is usually 200mg. This effectively means that the patient is within dosage limits. In essence, “depression, a common disease among the adult population, is also accepted as a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases” (Kesim, Tiryaki, Kidioglu, Muci, Kalyoncu, and Yaris, 2011, p. 1525).… Continue Reading...

Do Not Resuscitate Orders

Deontology and DNR: Addressing the Issue Introduction Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders are an issue for a number of care providers in hospitals, especially those who work within the context of hematology and oncology care. As Weissman (1999) notes, DNR is a stumbling block for many nurses and nursing students: for example, he states that his students unanimously struggle to understand the purpose of asking terminally-ill patients what their preferences are on resuscitation—“We know it’s required under hospital policy to ask patients their preference about resuscitation, but these cancer patients . . . well . . . you know .… Continue Reading...

Policy Of Choice Patient Safety

incarceration. Convicted drug offenders should receive professional psychological therapy and medical treatment. The overcrowding and adverse prison environment will never do anything to help a drug abuser recover. The government needs to invest more on rehabilitation centers and strengthen the medication network for drug users. Today most drug abusers will shy away from seeking medical attention for fear of being imprisoned. As such the criminal justice system should be left to deal with drug traffickers and not the drug users. The drug rehabilitation, therapy and medication system should be enhanced. The professions that deal with recovery from addiction should… Continue Reading...

In essence, these interpreters will act as third parties who facilitate communication between the healthcare provider and the patient and his/her family. They will work in collaboration with the healthcare provider and nurses to help ensure that patients understand these processes and adhere to medications and other treatment regime in order to improve their outcomes. During this process, bilingual interpreters will help lessen any mistakes in medication adherence or other issues relating to the patients’ management of their conditions and compliance with… Continue Reading...

Parkinson's Disease

heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease and Alzheimer’s are among the most common. Existing Access and Barriers to Health Care and treatment Options treatment for this population can include a range of interventions, including medications such as dopamine promoters, antidepressants, anti-tremor drugs and cognition-enhancing medication. Self-care practices are also commonly used as a treatment, such as the use of a physical exercise program. Specialist medicine is also an option with neurologists and primary care providers offering suggestions determined on a case-by-case basis and the particular issues and symptoms that appear for each patient. As not every patient responds the same way… Continue Reading...

Nursing Evidence Based Practice Research

& Vitale, 2012). The theory behind population-based nursing is that similar populations respond similarly to similar treatment interventions, just as diverse populations may respond differently to the same intervention (Curley, 2012). Population-based nursing is evidence-based, and it also promotes the value of patient-centered care. Advance practice nurses identify population variables through communication with patients, families, colleagues, and administrators. By identifying the population as the first step in evidence-based practice, advance practice nurses can also find information specific to necessary treatment interventions or practice behaviors. As Dieterle & Hooper-Lane (2009) point out, nursing and healthcare research is often classified or… Continue Reading...

Using Drugs to Treat Hepatitis C

(Tabibian, O’Hara, Splinter, Trussoni & Larusso, 2014). Also a possibility for treatment is “intestinal decontamination with non-absorbable antibiotics, such as rifaximin, is an effective treatment for subclinical hepatic encephalopathy” (Tabibian et al., 2016, p. 481). Antibacterial therapy would be the most effective form for treating an intestinal microbiome. However, if the diagnosis is ruled that the patient is in fact suffering from HCV, then a different approach to treatment would be required, because the infection would be viral rather than bacterial. A nurse cannot treat a patient suffering from a viral infection with an antibacterial treatment, as it will… Continue Reading...

How Modern Medicine Was Developed

believed that a disease was caused by an excess or deficiency in the body. The main goals for treatment were to restore the proper balance of the patient's body. The physicians were not meant to treat an ailment or a disease, they were merely meant to help nature. This meant that nature played a vital role in the physician's art because it was the source and also the limit. During those times, a physician who was deeply steeped in the study of philosophy was considered to be performing true medicine and the others were just quacks. Having mastered natural… Continue Reading...

Preventing Falls in a Hospital Setting

One of the major risks associated with inpatient stays is falls, and this problem is especially pronounced in acute care settings where infirm elderly patients may be heavily medicated and disoriented with respect to time, person and place (Hill & Vu, 2009). The scope of the problem, though, extends to patients of all ages and medical conditions. In fact, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (2018) reports that, “Between 700,000 and 1 million patients fall in hospitals… Continue Reading...

Infections also need to be differentiated between infectious versus non-infectious, although in many cases symptomology can be difficult to identify and properly diagnose (Sweeney, Wong & Khatri, 2016). The methods used to identify the pathogen include patient interview, full range of appropriate tests and diagnoses, and epidemiological research, a combination of which should reveal the “most likely organisms” causing the symptoms even when some guesswork is required (Gelone, Pacetti & O’Donnell, 2006, p. 78). Patient health history, demographics, and age may also be factors that will impact identification and… Continue Reading...

Involvement Of Professional Interpreters in Care Delivery Process

such patients and affect their understanding and adherence to medication and treatment approaches (Karliner, Jacobs, Chen & Mutha, 2007). According to de Moissac & Bowen (2017), language barriers generate the need for using third parties to facilitate communication between LEP patients and healthcare providers. The theoretical foundation for this project is that encounters in the healthcare setting comprise interactions between the individual patient, his/her family, and healthcare staff. These encounters incorporate integration of individual experiences, cultural norms, and cultural beliefs (Hadziabdic, 2011). Since encounters play an important role in the healthcare process, communication is the core of caring. The… Continue Reading...

Provider Patient Communication Through Professional Interpreters

enhanced interpersonal care, and better medication adherence within three months. Keywords: elderly Hispanics, patients, medication adherence, bilingual interpreters, treatment, patient-provider communication, healthcare providers. Overview Provider-patient communication is an important factor in enhancing patient outcomes in the modern healthcare environment. Elderly Hispanic immigrants and Mexican Americans are among patient populations facing relatively high rates of diabetes. Sentell & Braun (2012) contend that the prevalence of rates of diabetes among Hispanic communities for diagnosed and undiagnosed patients is approximately 18.3%. These populations are pre-disposed to diabetic disorders due to several factors including limited knowledge, lack of access to resources, and cardiometabolic mechanisms… Continue Reading...

Drug treatment Options for Patients Diagnosed with Cervical Cancer There are treatment options for patients diagnosed with cervical cancer. To begin with, it is imperative for the physician to determine the stage of the cancer, which takes into account the size, if it has spread and whether it also found in other parts of the body. Treatments for cervical cancer comprise of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and targeted therapy. To begin with, surgery is the fundamental treatment for cervical cancers in their early stages. The most common type of surgery the patient… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Research Quantitative Methods

a positivist framework emphasizes the importance of numerical, quantifiable data for determining the efficacy of treatment interventions or marketing methods used in healthcare. A phenomenological approach deems human subjective perceptions to be worthy of attention, important ways of knowing how patients perceive their interactions with nurses or how they respond to therapeutic interventions. Quantitative research might be attractive for its mathematical infallibility but also presents distinct limitations for knowledge generation in healthcare. It may therefore be important to combine qualitative with quantitative methods to generate knowledge in healthcare. The advantage of quantitative methods is that it can be more… Continue Reading...

Logical Fallacies and False Appeals in the Media

dermatologists as their symbol of authority on skincare. While dermatologists are experts in the medical treatment of skin, a product still needs to be tested empirically. Appeal to Pity This false appeal is also used widely in advertisements, particularly those that promote charitable organizations. One commercial shows malnourished children, and begs for the viewer’s money, claiming that the money can help these poor children. Appealing to pity is a variant on emotional appeals more broadly, in which the speaker manipulates audience sentiments, which can cloud rational judgment. Appeal to Fear Fear-based appeals are used constantly, particularly by politicians. For… Continue Reading...

Evacuation and Containment in an Emergency

Victim treatment and apprehension of the perpetrators are important—but in the first stages of response, they are secondary to the immediate goal of getting people to safety, which is always going to be the first and foremost initial concern in any emergency response approach (Haddow, Bullock & Coppola, 2017). As Ding, Tong, Zhang and Mao (2018) point out, evacuation is one of the most important elements of any safety plan in a facility where threat levels are high and loss of life can occur unless individuals are effectively… Continue Reading...

This definition addresses the metaparadigm theories of nursing in the sense that it provides a total framework for what nursing should achieve. I believe that various theories find support in this framework—from preventive care nursing to transcultural nursing to holistic approaches, various middle-range and borrowed theories… Continue Reading...

American Literature Identity What It Means to Be

The Evolution of American Identity Through Literature The diversity within the American experience, and as well within the canon of American literature, precludes the possibility of singling out two or even ten of the novels, poems, or short stories that best encapsulate what it means to be American. From the colonial and early national era and the fledgling formation of national identity through the struggles of emancipation from slavery and transcendentalism, onwards to the industrial and capitalist eras, American literature has provided an accurate reflection of the lives of individuals and communities that comprise life in different regions of the… Continue Reading...

Factors for Keeping Employees

Middle range theory is a prominent mechanism used within the preponderance of the research examined in the literature review for the factors contributing to the readmission of Hispanic patients with CHF. This theory helps to explicate some of the basic social constructs and their ramifications which can explain the relatively high rate of incidence of readmission for Hispanics afflicted with CHF. Essentially,… Continue Reading...

Health Care and Transparency Issues

health care reform—such as the Affordable Care Act, which promotes the idea of preventive care over endless rounds of treatment and testing. But as the government is in the business of subsidizing treatments and tests, which mean more profits for hospitals, the healthcare organizations do not mind doing one round of tests after another for patients so long as patients are willing to keep coming back for more. Were they actually engaging in preventive care and making this a priority, the cycle of patients through the door would likely drop as more of them would be taking the preventive… Continue Reading...

Fragmentation in the Health Care System

The U.S. Healthcare Systems 1 The U.S. healthcare system is fragmented by the fact that incentives do not align with the actual goal of healthcare (Enthoven, 2009). For instance, healthcare facilities are incentivized to “treat” patients rather than to help them lead healthier lives. As Goldhill (2009) points out, healthcare treatments are subsidized by taxpayer dollars—and there are powerful lobbies in the healthcare field that promote the use of pharmaceuticals or new health technology (like hip replacements, which could end up leaking cobalt into one’s body). Moreover, care providers are encouraged to perform tests on patients even though there is… Continue Reading...

Yet each article is also edited and based on primary source data that does come from peer-reviewed sources. Moreover, the Mayo Clinic website also offers links and resources for professionals including access to information about pending clinical trials, professional development opportunities, and research institutions.

However, the problem of direct to consumer marketing for healthcare products distorts the image of the healthcare industry and makes it unclear as to whether the industry is really out to serve the best interests of patients or if it is rather out to maximize profits. This paper will examine the study by Arnold and Oakley (2013) to… Continue Reading...

The challenge with this is that the delivery of the data might be easily compromised. In case the patient has an infected device, they can easily transmit the virus to the healthcare providers systems and this might result in the loss of data or breach of privacy. The validity of the information being delivered could also be compromised. Patients might not be certain they have installed or they are using an… Continue Reading...

As previously indicated, in contemporary America religion is a means of disseminating socially accepted modes of behavior to people. Specifically, these modes of behavior are referred to by Durkheim as “rites” (Durkheim, 2000)—meaning specific stages or even rituals which people engage in for certain occasions. There are numerous examples of how rites are used in the U.S. today. There are several rites practiced within the Christian church, such as those pertaining to the seven sacraments, which… Continue Reading...

However, with the government in control of healthcare, everyone within the nation is entitled to potential free healthcare at roughly the same quality and rate.[footnoteRef:11] They relinquish their potential options for a guaranteed level of service provided by the government. The trade-off then becomes what Rousseau saw, as a necessity. Looking at an example of the past, equality is something social contract theory provided a decent foundation for, because within the theory, the government became responsible for assuring equal opportunity to accumulate and own private… Continue Reading...

For helping populations prevent obesity, the primary prevention method would be to provide health literacy to the population so that it understands the risks of consuming too much sugar and how it can overcome this risk. The secondary prevention method would be to provide the population with suitable healthcare facilities and a suitable infrastructure; the tertiary method of prevention would be to provide suitable treatment—such as healthy diets and exercise interventions.

College Education Should be Free for Everyone People everywhere in the U.S. are going into major debt just to get a college diploma so they can be eligible for a career in the job market. Fifty years ago, having to get into debt just to be eligible for a job was not a characteristic of starting a career. It is a new phenomenon that has developed as a result of the federal government backstopping all student loans (Avery, Turner). Whenever the federal government gets involved in anything in the free market, prices go up (Wolfram). That is the reason health… Continue Reading...

Acute Asthma

Acute asthma is temporary whilst chronic asthmatic attacks are prolonged and can continue for a long period (MyAsthmaGuide, 2018). Pathmavathi, Subash and Sumangali’s (2013) arterial blood gas (ABG) examination on a total of forty subjects aimed at assessing ABG status among chronic and acute bronchial asthmatics.

Environmental factors influence the efficacy of some treatment interventions, by creating a sense of comfort in some or initiating a stress response in others. The design of the environment may also be conducive to relaxation, socializing, or resting. Nurses need to be aware of patient needs, with attention paid to cultural variables and other sociocultural issues like gender. Other aspects of Nightingale’s nursing theory that I can immediately apply to my patient care practices center on the responsibility the nurse undertakes to be an active role promoting healing via alterations to the… Continue Reading...

July of 1966 expanded the three-decade-long Social Security initiative and offered nursing home and hospital care, outpatient treatment and home nursing services to individuals aged above 65 years (QIO News, 2014). Numerous major attempts at quality improvement have been made in the last 50 years, largely initiated by academicians’ health quality campaign. Examples of such attempts are patient care delivery system reengineering and reorganization, incentivizing inter-institutional/provider competition, and peer review encouragement. Additional efforts were determination of medical procedures influencing patient health, performance assessment, offering rewards for good performance, penalizing poor performers, improving monitoring techniques, public quality data reporting, adopting swiftly-advancing… Continue Reading...

The Aca and Health Care Costs

The ACA and the U.S. Health Care System · The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was meant to promote greater quality care through increased implementation of preventive care; but as Lichtenfeld (2011) and Moynihan (2015) have shown, the health care industry remains committed to a course of treatments and tests because both are generally subsidized by the federal government—and, frankly, preventive care does not ensure that customers will keep coming through the door to make the industry money. · The problem with the ACA has been that it has done little to reduce the putting of profits before people mentality that… Continue Reading...

Elder Abuse Among Patients

is. Social media is really beyond our control at this point—but even there we can start demanding that fair treatment across the board be provided. We note that in recent months, various conservative social media users have lost their accounts on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube because their views do not mesh with the mainstream media’s. The reason, we are told, for their expulsion from social media by the social media CEOs is that they violated the terms of service by using language to inflame hatred. Yet when a left-wing social media user like Kathy Griffin calls for the “doxxing” of… Continue Reading...

Addiction Treatment Alcohol Addiction

Institute on Drug Abuse, 2019). In addition to evaluating the effectiveness of group therapy aid in the treatment of alcohol addiction, this paper will, amongst other things, highlight various aspects of the formations designed to assist alcohol addicts as well as those affected by the alcohol addiction problems/behaviors of loved ones. Discussion It is important to note, from the onset, that the relevance of group therapy in the treatment of alcohol addiction cannot be overstated. In essence, “the natural propensity of human beings to congregate makes group therapy a powerful therapeutic tool for treating substance abuse, one that is… Continue Reading...

Population Health Management

outcomes don't change much once a person has something, other than when treatment is improved. Advances in treatment, however, are typically diffused across the developed world quickly, so the United States cannot gain much advantage statistically by innovating treatments. The only true way to improve health outcomes on a broad level, they argue, is by tackling behaviors and knowledge at the population level, to reduce the incidence of disease in the first place. The Challenges of Population Health Management One of the first and most obvious challenges in population health management is that it doesn't work on its own.… Continue Reading...

Drug Addiction

result of illicit drugs, tobacco, prescription opioids, and alcohol abuse. The amount spent goes into the treatment of the addictions, amount of work loss and the consequences of crime suffered as a result. To begin with, drug use or participation in an activity like gambling starts voluntarily. Addiction will eventually take over forcing the addict to lose self-control (Levy, 2013). It is clear that addiction derails the ability of the addict to have neurological control over their cravings for a drug or an activity. In the words of Goldstein and Volkow (2011), drug addiction can be considered a neurological… Continue Reading...

Diabetes and Self Care

people assess the risks of diabetes and should motivate them to seek care and treatment. It should allow for detection of diabetes and treatment of complications and early referral of cases for management and treatment in centers. Even though the importance of the programs in the control and prevention of diabetes is recognized, it is not clear whether the programs are achieving the desired goal in diabetes awareness (Foma et al, 2013). Limitations The study sample consisted of non-Hispanic white male veterans and so it cannot be generalized to a diverse population. It was not possible to compare the… Continue Reading...

Zoster Without Complications

found to be roughly 15% (Brody & Moyer, 1997). PLAN HZ treatment has the following three key goals: (1) Acute virus treatment, (2) Postherpetic- neuralgia prevention, and (3) treatment of HZ- related acute pain. The above goals can be attained using antiviral agents, adjunctive personalized pain alleviation modalities, and oral corticosteroids. The former have demonstrated their capability of reducing HZ rash duration and magnitude of HZ rash- linked pain. But the above benefits are only witnessed among individuals receiving the medication within three days of rash development. Antiviral agents can prove useful so long as fresh lesions continue to form; however, following… Continue Reading...

Israel S Human Rights Violations

For existing 70 years, the country has done much with their government and society; however, it still has a long way to go in order to maintain their power. With the increasing of Ethiopian immigrants, the country will have to continue to move forward in civil rights and an anti-racism stance within the government and society. The persistent racism against the Ethiopian-Jews may also be quelled if the… Continue Reading...

Plato and Aristotle on Passion

Reason vs Passion: Comparing Aristotle and Plato Introduction It must be well known among all students and scholars of philosophy that both Plato and Aristotle have a high regard for reason. But what is their view on passion? It might be surprising to learn that neither philosopher holds a negative view of passion in and of itself—what both do, however, point out is that passion should be subservient to reason. Passion that is governed by reason is certainly not a bad thing, for either philosopher, and what is more important is that some passions or emotions should be promoted over… Continue Reading...

How to Treat Kidney Failure

lack of energy, trouble sleeping, puffiness, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating, frequent need to urinate and so on. treatment for chronic kidney disease ranges from changes to diet to lowering hypertension. To decrease high blood pressure, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARBs) are typically used. Medications to control blood sugar level may also be required, and lowering blood cholesterol can also help. Other ways to treat chronic kidney failure are to quit smoking, exercise more and begin eating a healthy diet. Exercise can help the body to regulate blood pressure and burn off calories. Diet, however, plays… Continue Reading...

Justification Of the State

new state is led as a nation, the new elites have a tendency to subject people to preferential treatment. It means that justice and protection against violence arbitrarily, is only accessible by those from the elite class that is dominant. The demographic constitution and the ethnic patterns of the state and whether it has as significant number of minorities that are members that make up the majority in neighboring states offers an indicator that conflict can escalate to uncontainable scales. It is so because ethnic kinships can lead governments to seek to protect co-ethnic communities across the border against… Continue Reading...

Puerto Ricans and Us Immigration

The people of Puerto Rico have a unique history in the US immigration. Indeed, Puerto Rico has a special, if not distinct place in the civil society of the American nation. Puerto Rico has been owned by the US for over a century. However, it has not ever acquired a state status. Puerto Ricans have been part of the US population for over a century. Puerto Ricans do not have a vote in the US congress. Puerto Ricans can move freely throughout the US states. Such movement is regarded as internal migration. However, when Puerto Ricans move to the mainland,… Continue Reading...

The Cbd Oil Craze

In fact, there is already “substantial evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults,” (Johnson, 2018). Other research has shown that CBD “significantly reduced sciatic nerve pain and inflammation,” (Kubala, 2018, p. 1). CBD could also prove helpful for immediate analgesic effects. For instance, a study done on rats showed that CBD injections reduced the rats’ pain response to a surgical incision (Kubala, 2018). Interestingly, the same set of studies has shown that unlike other pain relief drugs, CBD does not lead to tolerance or dependency/addiction (Johnson, 2018).  Muscle Spasms Because one study showed that… Continue Reading...

Kidney Function and Orthostatic Hypotension

of orthostatic hypotension. Low and Tomalia (2015) point out that the treatment and management vary according to the type of hypotension and severity of the symptoms. While the basic first aid entails lying down right away with legs positioned at a level above the heart, persistence of the symptoms demands immediate medical care. To manage, orthostatic hypotension, the individual is required to rest by lying down and consumption of water and other fluids with sodium and potassium.

FGM experiences exacerbate the short term and long term health consequences for girls and women affected by the vice. It is unacceptable from the health and human rights perspective. With FGM the risk of adverse health outcomes increases FGM severity. The world health organization opposes any form of FGM (WHO, 2019). The organization is also resolute in its opposition to this practice among healthcare providers. FGM, according to WHO should not and must not… Continue Reading...

For the psychological part of the effects, the inhuman treatment of having to be under an unsterilized ‘knife' without any form of anesthesia, and with legs forcefully held down and bound for a long period while the ‘surgery’ last, is nothing but mental torture. The girl child marriage also has negative effects similar to that of FGM. Exposure to sex and childbearing at an immature age is very dangerous to the wellbeing of the victim. One of the health risks of early marriage is the vesico-vaginal fistula (VVF) usually suffered by the young women. The consequences… Continue Reading...

of the patient’s stomach. Upon an assessment of what caused acute gastritis, the appropriate treatment plan can be instituted. For instance, “hemorrhagic and erosive changes can be seen in biopsy specimens…” (Hauser, 2011, p. 56). Acute injury in most patients’ gastric mucosa has been known to be produced by NSAIDs and aspirin (Hauser, 2011). There are various differential diagnoses for acute gastritis. These include nonulcer dyspepsia. In nonulcer dyspepsia however, endoscopy happens to be normal. Essentially, “in the absence of bleeding, removal of the causative agent and treatment with frequent antacids may be the only requirement” in the treatmentContinue Reading...

Wrongful Convictions

As Neuschatz, Jones, McClung and Wetmore (n.d.) note, secondary confessions are viewed as “extremely persuasive evidence” (p. 2) even though they are the “leading cause of wrongful convictions in capital cases” (p. 3). What this shows, nonetheless, is that information acquisition is the most effective of the three recommendations. Knowing where information was acquired and how can be extremely important in the application of research on informant testimony. Secondary confessions are the perfect example of how this is so. They show that just because information sounds legitimate and valid and is quickly and easily embraced by juries, the information itself… Continue Reading...

Race and Racism Who Are You?

American society. The 1965 United States immigration law changes gave preferential treatment to the highly skilled and highly educated applicants (Hassan 1). The new immigration laws paved way to the new Asian immigration wave. The Asian American seized the opportunity to get educated from American colleges and even had a higher chance of graduating from college than the American mean, a phenomena known as hyper-selectivity (Hassan 1).  For instance, the immigrants from China living in the United States have a twelve times better chance of graduating from college than the Chinese person who never immigrated (Hassan 1). An Asian… Continue Reading...

(2015) point out, “it is important to distinguish between short-term care provided after an acute hospitalization, often called subacute care, post-acute care, or skilled nursing care, and care provided on a long-term basis” (p. 182). Subacute and post-acute are typically provided in different settings—often in the geriatric unit of a hospital. A nursing home is most often used as a setting for long-term care in which assistance is needed with daily living and with the instruments needed for daily living, as well as… Continue Reading...

The Diagnostic Criteria and Treatments for Ptsd

many people with PTSD also receive comorbid diagnoses. The symptoms of PTSD can be managed via evidence-based treatment interventions. Psychotherapy and psychopharmacology both offer assistance to people with PTSD. There is no one universal psychotherapeutic model used to manage PTSD symptoms, but cognitive restructuring and exposure therapy have both proven effective (National Institute of Mental Health, 2018). Group therapy can also help the individual develop resilience through social support networks. Likewise, different types of medications may be warranted depending on the person’s symptoms and needs. A combination of therapeutic interventions is most likely to help those suffering from PTSD. References… Continue Reading...

This is more so the case given that as Garvey, Pengo, Drakatos, and Kent (2015), point out, in addition to being at a higher risk of motor vehicle accidents, untreated patients are also “more likely to die of cardiovascular disease” (278). The treatment plan could incorporate CPAP machine and nasal sprays (in instances involving nasal congestion). There is also need for the individual suffering from OSA to reduce weight if they happen to be obese. This is more… Continue Reading...

Blue Wall Of Silence

Q1. Discuss whether the police “code of secrecy” can ever be overcome so that acts of misconduct and corruption can be revealed and properly investigated. The so-called “blue wall of silence,” or the unspoken code of conduct that a police officer never informs on one of his brother and sister officers, is a product of an institutional culture that emphasizes interpersonal loyalty, sometimes at the expense of official police policy or even the law. The code is a product of the close, personal relationship officers have with one another on a day-to-day basis. Officers are also frequently in contact with… Continue Reading...

Urinary Tract Infection

For long-term care facilities residents, when treatment for UTI with antimicrobials is initiated, they should have a routine checkup for antibiotic susceptibilities. If they are available, they should be used based on antimicrobial susceptibility patterns (Rowe & Juthani-Mehta, 2013). The patient is also advised to take adequate fluids. Even though this may increase their rate of urination and, make them uncomfortable, it goes a long way in helping to flush out the bacteria from the body (Bubnis, 2017).

Why Marijuana Should Be Legalized

Introduction When the nation was founded, hemp was a regular crop that the Founding Fathers all harvested. Cannabis was literally part of the fabric of the American Way: hemp was used for a variety of functions, from tea to textiles.
