Informed consent is a process by which the health care professional provides information to a patient to which a patient can make a voluntary choice to decline or receive the treatment. It is the ethical right of the patient to receive this information and to make a choice according to his or her preferences (De Bord, 2014). Informed consent is an important part in every medical professional’s career. Without this consent it could mean the end of the individual’s career. In this assignment I will be aiming to describe the importance of informed consent in the medical field.
Even though I am not a doctor, my younger cousin is autistic and shows the same signs as this student. The teacher informed me that he was not doing well in class because he did not understand anything she was teaching. I asked the teacher why he was not in a special needs classroom and she explained to me how the student’s parents would not acknowledge the situation at home or in the classroom. The climate of this specific classroom is not suited for a child with special needs, if the child were in a special needs classroom, his learning would not be stifled but encouraged. An additional example as to what school climate is, is stated in “School Climate: Measuring, Improving and Sustaining Healthy learning environments,” by H. Jerome Freiberg, “School climate
Information should be conveyed to them in a way that they're able to understand. They also have the right to a written summary of any information that is provided to them. In general they're entitled to have access to or copies of your medical records. However, there may be exceptional circumstances in which a doctor is entitled to refuse access to the patient. If this is the case, they must be told of the reason for the refusal.
Moreover, their children may feel awkward with other children because he/she feels outdated. This may result to the child’s lonely childhood. Instead of socializing with other children with his age, he/she may want to just play alone. Financial instability also slows the child’s academic progress in school. Poor single parents can’t afford to buy their children home computers, laptops, books, and the other things that can help their children to succeed in school.
The others were describing the different types of medical interpreters, and the types of errors committed by medical interpreters ( Abrue et al, 2012). After reading through them, they were analyzed by seeing what do the results of each study say, and how is that related to my review. The review was outlined by stating the importance of conducting such studies according to the researchers' point of view. Then it moves on to talk about the main areas influenced by medical interpreting errors. After that, it talks about the main types of errors and the types of medical interpreters.
At first, the child’s mother was in complete denial about the child’s disability, even withdrawing him from public school as a way to avoid administrative pressure to sign an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Recently, the child’s mother has seemed “sad” about her child’s situation and has taken the small step of acknowledging that her child is lagging behind his peers. Unfortunately, the parent still denies a disability and places blame of his delay on medical reasons, such as allergies. When parents have attached a negative meaning to a disability diagnosis, either personally or through interaction with family and friends, they will react negatively to a disability diagnosis for their child (Case,
I. INTRODUCTION There are many definitions about Confidentiality and this word is commonly linked together with trust, respect of autonomy and privacy. One of the classic definitions; Confidentiality is a pledge or agreement that any off-the-record information shared by the patient will be protected against disclosure to a third-party, unless permitted by the patient, or in some circumstances, guided by the law or the primary involved parties. The confidential information is strictly discussed among health care providers only. The ethics of Confidentiality is highly recommended in the medical field.
Informed consent involves the legal and ethical right of clients to a proposed procedure that gives them the ability to make autonomous decisions about the process (p 154). Through informed consent, the client becomes an active participant understanding of the facts, risks and benefits, involved therapeutic process. Informed consent is ideally taken in written form so it is documented and defines boundaries between the therapist and client that clarify the counseling relationship, along confidentiality. If the therapist fails to provide this informed consent process it put them at risk in facing both legal and ethical problems. Informed consent recognizes an individual 's right to freedom, autonomy, and dignity.
Conflict between children and their parents usually results because the former want down time and the latter fear their child won’t have a good life without good grades. Children in elementary school shouldn’t have homework because it is not beneficial to the students, it cuts time students have with family, and homework in elementary causes undue stress on both children and parents. Children in elementary school shouldn’t have homework because it is not beneficial to the students. Data shows that not only is homework not beneficial to children’s grades or GPA but it also determines a lot about children 's attitude about school, their grades, and their self-confidence in themselves and what they can do. It does not help with grades.
Therapeutic privilege is the idea that if the health care provider discloses information to a patient it may harm them more than help them. The concept of therapeutic privilege is tricky because it must be well documented that omitting the information is in the patient’s best interest. Also, in most cases, therapeutic privilege does not completely overrule informed consent. The health care provider must provide any information to the patient that they judge not to cause harm to the patient. For example, they may not disclose the diagnosis immediately but may explain and gain consent for the preferred treatment option.
