Questions concerning quality of life and desired treatment are no longer the main obstacle. New questions arise with the availability and accessibility of genetic information including: should a doctor be required to forewarn a patient of any chronic, untreatable, or fatal ailments before onset (p86)? There may be no improvement on the quality of life for the patient to know how they may decease. Also, if incurable genetic predispositions for disease inheritance of a unborn child are easily determined and proven, does the doctor inform the parent thereby leading to a potential rise in abortion (75,102)? Can and should genetic disease be erased from the general population by in vitro fertilization and prenatal screening (p97, 102, 139)?
The rising deaths and DCFS cases is a testament to the disservice our nation is doing to neglected and abused youths. Once kids are placed in the foster care system, they are often moved from one placement to another which may negatively impact all aspects of their lives that are critical to success in later life such as school, social relationships, and environmental/community influences. This constant separation and loss may lead youths to feel hopeless, and resent social interactions as they feel that social relationships are extremely fragile. This affects group treatment as individuals may drop-out of treatment due to a new placement, or decline to actively participate as they feel hopeless and feels distrustful of everything around them. When children and youths cannot trust their caregivers for reassurance, they have no where to turn but the public.
For many, death is not an easy topic. There are those who find the ambiguity of what occurs in the afterlife frightening and some others who fear that death will cut their lives short before they fulfill their destinies. In an almost subconscious fashion, mankind has leaned on medical technologies to help deal with the ambiguity of the afterlife. Biotechnology has emerged as the premiere form of medical technology that enables mankind to further try to resist mortality. With the development of biotechnology, people are able to fight illnesses and other harms which also help decrease their chances of dying.
Mental health problems are illnesses that pose lots of life problems to individuals who suffer from these health problems. Despite the difficulty that comes with treating these disorders, it is imperative for the victims to seek cognitive and behavioral therapies as well as medical attention to be able to improve their lives. This would minimize problems that result from relationships as well as those that result from work places due to mental
Family plays a crucial role in caring for each of its members. Having them be active in the care will not only benefit the patient but the family as well. As healthcare workers we need to assess how illnesses not only affect the patient but the family itself (Zhang, Wei, Zhang, & Shen 2014). Seeking Western medical assistance may be a last resort and it can be a time that is stressful for the family as a whole. When looking to care for the patient we need to support the patient and the family during the time to alleviate the stress.
Many patients are afraid that their illness will cause them to become incapable of living independently, that they will eventually become a burden on their family. In a longitudinal case study designed to show the motivations for physician-assisted suicide, the result shows the main categories of motivation are illness-related experiences, changes in the person 's sense of self, and fears about the future (Pealman et.al). These patients will most likely suffer even more from their mental stress that they will become financially dependent on their family. As patients suffer through physical illness, their lives will be changed dramatically. It reasonable to see how a person will become hopeless about future after a great change in life.
Taking the vaccination reduces disease and spread by a stronghold. You are helping those sick, and those who cannot receive vaccination. This proves my point in understanding why hospital settings especially require specific vaccinations. As employees, you are making the spread of disease less likely, and you are protecting the world and making it a healthier, safer place. Without mandatory vaccines, the consequences of not taking them would increase, and the rate of disease and spread of disease would jump.
As the condition is medicalized, they receive government grants and funding to better the treatment quality and technology given to patients. I feel government representatives also support this medicalization because it focuses the attention off of social components, like the strict gender categories and roles a person must belong to, and onto biological components, to which they are not responsible for. The trans-gender community can be seen to support and reject medicalizing Gender Dysphoria, as it allows treatment to be more accessible, but also increases stigmatization. Strong religious groups advocate against the medicalization of this disorder, as they put the blame on the individual’s parents and argue for prayer and counseling to guide the individual back in the right direction
The main form of child maltreatment is neglect, which can result in lifelong consequences (Naughton et al., 2013). Neglect refers to a child’s caretaker failing to meet the needs of a child that are required for the child’s physical, intellectual, and emotional development (Sylvestre, 2010). The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children describe psychological maltreatment as “patterns of damaging interactions between the parent-carer and child through acts of omission or commission, acknowledging that emotional neglect and abuse have equally damaging effects on the child” (Naughton et al., 2013). The caretaker is inattentive to the child’s emotional needs, nurturing needs, and emotional well-being. Neglected children lack parental support, leaving the children with greater relational stress.
It allows people with possible allergies to certain vaccines become aware of that, and not be put at risk. One of the reasons the government should make it mandatory to get vaccinated, is mainly because it helps to prevent you from getting sick. This is especially important for people with weak immune systems, because they would get sicker than a normal person. Also, vaccines are important because, “the viruses and bacteria that cause illness and death still exist and can be passed on to those who are not protected by vaccines” ("Top Reasons to Get Vaccinated." 1).
Of course, anyone could assume they do not receive the same amount of care as the rest of the population, but many probably do not realize how their lifestyle could potentially end their lives. I believe a change should be made by the community and local physicians by creating ways to get the homeless into health clinics, no matter what their financial status is. Many homeless people probably do not feel comfortable in such environments so it would be crucial to make them feel cared for and not judged. It would also be important for them to trust in the care being provided so a “patient centered” care plan would be essential. If they feel comfortable and they are treated kindly, they may come back for further care which could potentially save their lives.
For instance, if the child was captured by the same sex it will be hard for them to trust or respect the people surrounding them. The assault could make them choose to become abstinence forever. The physical health is affected because they will become aware of their surroundings, who they socialize with, how they carry themselves, and more. The mental health is disturbed because the child will eventually think negatively about everything verbally or nonverbally. Their spiritual health can change because they will feel as if they are not safe.
